Another figure drawing from 1996 or there-abouts. I was drawing directly in ink using an old steel pen nib that I'd uncovered in an old trunk I'd inherited from my grandmother. The nibs were pretty inflexible, so a varied line was few and far between. Drawing directly in ink taught me to (try to) commit to a line, an exercise I highly recommend.

Feeling guilty about my poor post rate lately, I dug through the archives for something new. Here's a figure drawing from 1996, Diana Blackwell, model. I was sitting in on Frank Stack's figure drawing class twice a week at the University of Missouri in Columbia. Diana was one of the best models I've ever drawn. She was imaginative, engaged, and seemed to treat modeling as a performance.
