a few little illustrations i did for Time Out New York a couple weeks ago, about weird yoga classes available in the city. these were “laughing” yoga, “twerk-out” yoga, and naked yoga. (every single one of those sounds like torture to me, but to each their own!) 

i’m really happy with the sketches!

also i’m SUPER glad there isn’t footage of me attempting to take photoreference selfies for this project. lol is me realizing after three minutes of flailing that i can’t actually put my foot behind my head.

went to a life-drawing session last night and drew from a model for the first time in a loooong time. i’m def not posting the first half hour of “wait how do humans work i forgot,” but trust me, it was rough. i really need to go to these more regularly; super fun and helpful.
