Sketching at FIT

Last night I went to a wonderful sketch night at FIT organized by the always inspirational Melanie Reim. It was a night steeped in nostalgia in many ways, drawing on our old turf for several hours. I'm a big fan of the way Melanie structures drawing sessions. Most poses are kept very short, giving you time to put it down without getting too fussy. This creates a great energy in the room, which everyone contributes to and feeds off of. The drawings below are a few of my favorites from the night. The sketches on kraft paper were from one minute poses, and the ones on white were five minutes.


  1. These are all beautiful Bri- I especially like the 3rd sketch on kraft paper.

  2. Brilliant work Bri, I came away with nothing I could post, I'm hoping for better luck tonight. Great to see you as always.

  3. These are terrific, Bri-
    Thanks for the kudos, I always love being around people who love to draw..
    we'll have to do some more....
