An Artist’s Panoply. 

Friday night life drawing is upon us, but being short on male models, Mike, the owner of Jankura Art Space, strikes a pose himself with some painting tools and an easel. We started with six two-minute poses to warm up and select from for the long pose. My weapon of choice is the ball point…
