The model’s real name is Lars but everyone calls him, Action Bear! He’s a body builder and an exhibitionist, he’s full of life and loves posing in impossible positions which no normal model could ever hold. The problem with Lars is that he’s a little over-ambitious and rarely holds the pose, this annoys some of my life drawing comrades but I just find it amusing. It’s difficult drawing a body builder when you have limited time, so many bumps and curves to deal with! I turned him into a comic character, that’s the way I dealt with capturing his body-form.
My name is David Meldrum, I love painting watercolours. Another passion I have is life drawing, I run a class called Meldrum Kroki. I was born in Ireland but since 1990 I have lived in Stockholm, Sweden.
