NYC and the northeastern part of the US is preparing for Snowmageddon 2015 (a/k/a snowpocalypse).   Yesterday we were getting 20 – 30 inches of snow, today the forecast is 18-24 inches.  I just went to the store to get some olives, because really, what else does one need whilst snowed in.  Luckily there was no rush on olives.  I don’t know why.

I’ve been figure drawing with K.   We were going to go again tonight but decided that if it’s really snowmageddon, we didn’t want to be trapped in a tiny room listening to the subway rumble until they shut it down and we couldn’t get home.

When we went on Friday the model was Mark and he was very good.  Lean, but not too skinny.   I’m realizing that I don’t like the really skinny models. There’s nothing to draw.  I might as well draw the skeleton that’s in the room with us. K of course is amazing.  So amazing that the model came up and asked if he could photograph K’s drawings at the end of the session.  Lucky for me, I can also learn from K so it’s all good.

Now, why is there no weather on the weather channel?   I wanted to see what was coming and there was show called “Fat Guys in the Woods”.  My brother who does not read my blog loves that show.  Some guy named Creek (I’m already frightened) teaches fat guys how to survive.  Don’t they know that “outside begins with ‘ow'”???  I hope snowmageddon doesn’t require us to become survivalists.  I’d go down in the first wave!  I guess the take away from all of this is, fat guys are more interesting to draw, but don’t expect them to save you during the apocalypse!
