Our First Live-Model Sketch Class feat. Chay Bella

We teamed up with a New Jersey art gallery and one of the models from by photo reference books for our first live-model sketch class.

Comic Book School and The P-Nut Gallery in Sparta, NJ co-hosted an inaugural event that featured Chay Bella, a model/actress/writer/musician who was featured in my book Comic Artists Photo Reference: Women and Girls.

Let us know what you think of our first sketch session. Should we do more live-model sketching sessions like this? If you make comics, would you find this helpful to do at a comic convention or at another location? Post your thoughts in the comments below.

Here are some of the photos I shot of Chay in 2008 for the book “Comic Artists Photo Reference: Women & Girls.”

Special thanks to Chay Bella, who also joined us at New York Comicon 2018. Be sure to check out her links here to learn more about her acting, modeling, writing, and music:
