My trip to Pasadena and the ICON6: part 2
Wednesday, the first day of the Illustration Conference I had signed up for a sketching trip to China Town with my old artcenter teacher Jeff Smith and his teaching colleague Paul Rogers. About 15 conference attendees had signed up for this trip, among them Australian illustrator Nigel Buchanan. Jeff and Paul had hired two models to pose as Jack Gittes and the girl from Roman Polanskis "Chinatown" 1974. Half way through the second pose, the bar owner told us to quit drawing 'cause we were treepassing..... well we finished up, closed our sketchbooks and... went into his bar!
Jeff Smith is teaching a class at Artcenter, where students go to different LA locations and draw models who pose as murder victims.....I wish I could attend this class..unfortunately Los Angeles is a little bit to far from Copenhagen!
