Raven's Return

Since joining the Tuesday Night drawing group three years ago, other artists occasionally would say “Do you remember Raven? He moved to New York and is modeling there.”

I had this image of a wild and crazy guy with a great body, an interesting if not weird character who was a great model. When the model walked in to the gallery’s drawing space last Tuesday night I thought “Wow, interesting character. Braided beard. Wire-rimmed glasses. Muscular body. Tattoos.”  Yep, Raven. He’s in town temporarily and was filling in for a regular model who had to cancel.

Excellent model and an interesting evening of great poses. I mean, come on . . . the braided beard alone is pretty cool.
