Last week Gorilla Tango Theater (1919 N. Milwaukee in Bucktown) was kind enough to fit us into their already bustling schedule so we could put in a little practice figure drawing. We had a pretty good turnout to sketch not one, but two models: Harley Darling and Jean Wildest. First up was Harley Darling dressed as Darth Vader. Here are some sketches of her from the event:
After moving to a different studio to accommodate patrons for a later show, we sketched Jean Wildest as Daenerys Targaryen. Here are a few of those sketches:
I heard nothing but positive reviews from both the artists and the models and we will definitely be doing something like this again sometime soon. So keep an eye out if you missed it. A huge thanks to the Harley, Jean, Dan, Katilin, Shane, and the rest of the crew at Gorilla Tango!
If you’d like to see Harley and Jean in their natural habitat you can catch them at one of Gorilla Tango’s regular parody burlesque shows. Check out the schedule here.
