Last week I re-charged my cultural batteries in London. I was reminded what an incredible centre it is for art exhibitions. In which other city could you see Michelangelo’s ‘Dream’ , read VanGogh’s letters to his brother, marvel at Henry Moore’s ouvre & scrutinize hundreds of Ronald Searle originals all in one day?! In my experience only Paris has more top exhibitions simultaneously on the go (and London admission prices are catching up with the French capital too; for £12 a pop they should throw in a complimentary catalogue).

Uli’s found the best life drawing class I’ve ever been to! Local Nice artist Louis Dolle runs regular classes in his tiny studio near to the Russian Cathedral. It’s a typically French affair-music is played in the background, the models chat with Louis & the other artists as they pose and wine is served up during the break! 1 2 The model made really interesting poses 3 4 5 Rapid warm-up poses between 10-20 seconds. 6 7 8 9 10 ‘Top of the cranium’ angles are a challenge to draw

Last weekend I visited a part of Europe that I’d never thought I’d see- Slovakia! It was all down to my Canadian colleague, Mr. Kris Pearn , and his insatiable desire to drink beer in every European capital before he moves back to the U.S. Of course I needed little convincing to tag along on the expedition into the lower Carpathian region! We visited the impressive Devin Castle, outside Bratislava.
According to a recent press release, one of the world’s most recognizable female cartoon characters is about to set a first, so some will have us believe. Marge Simpson, wife and mother of America’s favorite dysfunctional family is going to pose for the November issue of Playboy magazine. Marge is being reported as “the first cartoon character ever” to be featured on the cover of Playboy. This is well hyped and not surprisingly the reaction to this event has been varied and heated, but is it accurate? Not really. According to a flood of responses, it seems Leroy Neiman’s “Femlin” cartoon character was the first cartoon character to be featured (in August 1960) and was subsequently featured many times
