Halsted St.) for two scorching models! Three hours of sizzling poses! Thank goodness for the air conditioned theater--but you'd better bring a cool beer to keep your temperature at a safe level as you draw our sultry models, Pearl Pistol and Naughty Natanya!

George C. Clark FAL exhibiton, June 8th!

One of our favorite Brimstone artists, George C. Clark, is holding an exhibition of his work on Sunday, June 8th at the Figurative Art League in Evanston, including drawings based on sketches done at the BDC! He'll be showing drawings of Brimstone models Danielle (our incredible May belly dancer) and Miss Tamale (April's sensational alt model), among others. In his own words:

"This show is about my process of using life drawing not as practice, but to create art. A lot of the drawings are just like they were when the model stopped posing, but I'm also showing the pieces that evolved, that were corrected or altered, were combined to tell a story, or had backgrounds or color added."

George C. Clark: Life Drawing & Beyond

An exhibition of nudes, portraits, imaginary portraits, and narrative images in various media, all drawn from life or based on life drawings.

Opening Reception: Sunday June 8, 2008 from 3 to 5 pm
Everyone is welcome to the opening, but after that the exhibition will only be seen by artists who participate in Figurative Art League drawing and painting workshops during June.

Room 215, Noyes Cultural Center, 927 Noyes St., Evanston, IL
