Live Drawing at Altered Esthetics Gallery

So for a long time there has been costumed live drawing at Altered Esthetics Gallery on the third Wednesday of every month, but I always forget or am too busy. Fortunately Dan Murphy stopped by the studio for a chat en route to AE so I decided to push my deadlines aside for a few hours and draw people in costumes standing still. If you are in the Twin Cities and want to try your hand at it, the next Suit Up AE! event is on Wednesday, September 19th, 6:30-8:30pm, and there's a suggested donation of three bucks.

Here are the results of tonight's session (or at least the ones I feel like sharing):
