I stumbled apon this site the other day called Wikipainting. It needs to feature more artists to succeed but it does have potential. I enjoyed looking at the Alphonse Mucha and Egon Schiele pages; make sure you click on the , ‘All artworks’ tab to see of the complete archive of the artist.
I’ve promised myself to start sketching everyday so here is my lunch with Michael Caine!
I know this is politicly incorrect,
but I like it!

I am currently scanning my life drawings from 2011 which I hope will soon be published here on this blog. While looking through all the studies I decided I need to stylise my illustrations to give them a more accomplised feel. As I like Art Neuveau so much I plan to try this style in the near future and see what developes. Artists I like are: Alphonse Mucha and Gustav Klimt. More modern Artists I admire in this Art Neaveau style are: Audrey Kawasaki and Adam Huges
Audrey Kawasaki’s work is both Manga and Art Nouveau inspired, her technical skills are top-class. I find the work both erotic and innocent, the fact that a lot of the paintings are directly on wood add a lot of warmth to the compositions.
Some of Aud’s other links:
There is life drawing at the Museum of Dance in Stockholm this term. I have never been but I intend to give it a try. It must be great fun drawing dancers in classic poses or even trying to catch them while in motion. I have copied the information from their website and placed it below.

I found this artist’s work to be quite interesting, it’s provocative sometimes and it even reminds me of an ex-girlfriend’s drawing style, Melanie Stickland. His name is Rene Almanza and he is from Mexico.
