My Muses In London

I’ve just emailed a digital artwork that’s going into an exhibition in London this weekend. It’s an animated sequence of some of the female models I work with and it’s called “My Muses”. It’s made up of life drawings that I’ve done on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet with a free Markers app. I’ve been hitting the ‘Save’ button frequently, every few seconds, to build up a record of the drawings as they progress. Husb transferred them onto a desktop and edited them together in Adobe Premiere Pro.

 

The animation is appearing at the FiLiA annual conference at The Institute of London near Russell Square this weekend. I am so lucky to be able to work with such exceptional women. Artists’ models are rarely given the recognition they deserve, it’s not an easy job, there’s more to it than just sitting still, they inspire us.

 

The women I work with are older, middle-aged, younger; large and small; black and white; a student, a teacher, a soldier, an artist, a stay-at-home-mother, a free spirit; employed and unemployed; from all walks of life. They have one thing in common – they are My Muses.

I won’t post the animation just yet as it’s getting its debut at the FiLiA conference, so I’ll post it next week.

 

The FiLiA conference is at the Institute of Education, Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AL (nearest tube stations: Russell Square, Euston) on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd October. Please follow the links below for more information.

      Thank you, Phil. I find it much easier to draw a nude than an eggcup 😁
