On Saturday I went with my friend Holly to check out Dr.Sketchy's anti art school, which is a life drawing class with fabulous burlesque models. It is run by Charlotte Thompson and Scarlett Daggers, I had an amazing time and highly recommend it, the next one is in October. I cannot remember the name of this model but I loved her hair!

Tattoo design for Tommy P

A sketch for Tommy's tattoo design, I need to add text and ensure that the globe is perfectly spherical, but it's a good start. Going to add text but need a manly way of displaying it.

The surgical delights of ORLAN

ORLAN is one of those delicious people that has evolved themselves into a new state of optical superiorness. I've just bought her new book,' ORLAN, A hybrid body of artworks.' She takes the phrase 'body of work' quite literally. After looking at her website it made me realize how boring my hair and face is. Hopefully I shall get to see some of her work live, or I could just hold my new book real close to my face so it looks like i'm there. I'll make a review of the book once I've had a gander.

Alexander the great lives on...

Whilst I was waiting for the bus home, I was flicking through magazines to kill time, and I noticed this ad by Dsquared, it reminded me of McQueen's 2001 spring/summer collection because of the encasing of the models and the coldness of the atmosphere. Suppose putting things in glass cases could link back to ol' Damien Hirst, then from him to Francis Bacon...
