About the Event
Usually I feel giddily excited to announce the rarity of a drawing opportunity, but this time that excitement is tinged with another feeling. For the rarity of the subjects of this session is because they are sadly the very last two animals of their species.
Najin and her daughter Fatu are the last Northern White Rhinos in existance. They are a living reminder to us to do better and I think are going to prove to be the most beautiful and inspiring models.
@kaushman visited Najin & Fatu in person last year and is kindly allowing us the opportunity to draw from some of the footage and photographs that he captured during that time. Having drawn from Kaushik's work before (remember those sleeping underwater seals?!), I know that we are in for a real treat!
All levels of creatives are welcome to these sessions and there is never any pressure to share your work if you don't want to. What you can expect is to find an encouraging group of animal-loving artists who love the challenge of drawing all creatures great and small, feathered or fishy, we love them all!
DO BRING PLENTY OF PAPER - you will get through a lot! The rest is up to you, but I recommend choosing materials that move quickly across the page for those moving animal studies.
PLEASE ARRIVE IN PLENTY OF TIME - the sessions are always jam-packed with footage so I try to start promptly at 7pm so it's a good idea to jump on the zoom ten mins beforehand to get settled. I can of course let you in if you arrive late (I'm no meany!) : )
I can't wait to draw with you!
