Bodies In Motion

Hey All,

I've had the opportunity to use the "Bodies in Motion" site, created by Scott Eaton, over the last few months and have to tell you - it is amazing. From the carefully curated body types, movements, lighting, and artistry of the photography, to the high resolution photos, multi-cam function, and timer this has become my new go to reference. I only wish I had something this comprehensive when I was a student studying anatomy and motion. I highly recommend signing up.

Here is a link to the site which goes live on Jan. 16th. For fun I've included some of the drawings done from the "BiM" site below.

Anatomy Tools March 2017 Workshop


(Example demos from the "Body Worlds Exhibit" - Day 3 of the Level 1 Workshop)

I'm excited to announce that I will be returning as a guest instructor to Anatomy tools in March, 2017. This workshop is a 5 day, 10 hour a day intensive led by anatomy expert and fine artist, Andrew Cawrse.

Speaking from personal experience I've never learned more or had a better time than when studying with Andrew and couldn't recommend taking a class from him highly enough. For my part, I will be teaching drawing as a compliment and aid to students as they learn anatomy and apply those concepts to sculpture. My approach to drawing has always stressed the importance of 3-dimensional thinking which is why I think sculpture, and Andrew's teaching, is such an important and natural carryover for students looking to push their skills.

Here is the link to sign up if you're interested in pushing your drawing/anatomy skills in both 2d and 3d mediums. Please let me know if you have any questions, hope to see some of you there.

5 min Poses


Here are some recent 5 min poses demoing the importance of process. Building from gesture, to tilts, shapes, connections, then landmarks, and finally adding perspectives.
