Club stuff

Friend and fellow artist, Ed Johnson, runs the Wednesday afternoon figure drawing sessions at The Plastic Club. Lately, he's been extending his skills to setting up the model stand. He's been conjuring some impressive backdrops from the materials available in the room.

Figure drawing sessions with elaborate backdrops will be set up all over the club tomorrow for the Drawing Marathon, which will run from 10AM to 10PM. The details are posted here.

Meanwhile, Bob's show is still up at the 22 Gallery in Malvern. I stopped by last weekend and was surprised that he has around twenty works on display in an extensive group show. Gallery 22 is actually a little house with lots of rooms. The show runs until next Sunday.

Clokey bio

Night Flight has posted a biography of Art Clokey, the creator of Gumby. It explains a great deal, including Gumby's distinctive shape and the origin of his pony pal, Pokey.

It's great to see Night Flight still exists, albeit in Website form. I miss the late-night variety program from the 80s and 90s that showed music videos, short films, animation, and a lot of eclectic weirdness in the middle of the night. Night Flight helped popularize animated shorts like Bambi Meets Godzilla and Balance.

Same model and pose from the previous post, one week later. She returned to the club yesterday. This time I drew her a little larger so I could get the details in.

Rabbit invite

The invite for The Royal Rabbit event is now complete and will be mailed to Plastic Club members in early April. Details on signing up to attend/perform will be on the back. I went with a trippy record album look since this year's Rabbit party promises to be particularly musical.

The Rabbit approaches

The Rabbit, The Plastic Club's annual Spring festival and costume party with lots of food and entertainment is scheduled for May 19th.

I'll be curating and hosting again this year. The theme is The Royal Rabbit. This is a fundraising event for the club so there will be a modest fee to attend.

If you'd like to sign up to perform, please e-mail the title of your act and names of the participants to rabbitsignup@gmail.com. I'll add you to the list.

I'll be in touch as soon as I complete the image for the invites. A preliminary sketch:

While looking for source material, I found this short documentary recalling the Super Bowl halftime show in 2007, when Prince played Purple Rain in the actual rain.
