This is my first life drawing in over five years... Yikes! I must admit, it feels good to be drawing again after such a long time. I'm a bit rusty though ;)

Just this week a new life drawing venue opened up two minutes walk from my work so I had to check it out. I really love it so far. The people are nice and it starts when I finish work in the evening, so how could I not go! I'm plannig to draw every week from now on.

Another thing I've been meaning to do for a while is provide high-resolution scans of my drawings for free via a Creative Commons license. I'm starting that today. When I get time I'll add downloads for all my previous artworks too.
