This is nuts how cool is this image
Tonight is the last night of screenings in Cincinnati for the independent feature "Rocks in my Pockets" by Signe Bauman. You guys NEED TO GO TODAY.

Why? It's an indie feature and we need to support each other, But aside from that this is an animated film that deals with topics like depression and sanity which means it is definitely interesting and worth watching- this is the kind of film we need more of!

What is even going on here I am dying to find out!!!??
It is Playing at the Mariemont Theatre and it ends TODAY- there are several showtimes throughout the day, You can find times on the Mariemont Theatre website  and there is more info, art, and trailers on the film's website www.rocksinmypocketsmovie.com

"'Rocks In My Pockets' is a story of mystery and redemption. The film is based on true events involving the women of my family, including myself, and our battles with madness. It raises questions of how much family genetics determine who we are and if it is possible to outsmart one’s own DNA. The film is packed with visual metaphors, surreal images and my twisted sense of humor. It is an animated tale full of art, women, strange daring stories, Latvian accents, history, nature, adventure and more.
The idea for 'Rocks In My Pockets’ came from my stream of consciousness. Like most people I think about a wide variety of things, some fantastical, some mundane, but my mind keeps coming back to thoughts of “ending it all” and the ways I could go about doing it. Why? Why do I think this way? And why I am still alive despite such thoughts? I find the fragility of our minds fascinating. Life is strange, unpredictable, sometimes absurd and I try to see the humor in it all." - Signe Bauman


I would love to hear what you guys think after you see it- since I am out of town I can't see it until next week so  I'd love to hear your reviews!

A model at your beck and call- Updated

Posemaniacs- I went to Christina Wald's class at NKU last week and had a nice time- we were talking about drawing and gesture drawing and one of the students mentioned this website- I checked it out and it looks pretty useful.

There are timed poses that you can use to practice gesture drawing at home, and the figures are flayed so you can see their musculature. Also you are able to rotate the figure as needed to understand better why certain things look the way they do-  and enable or disable a grid overlaying the image. Very cool!

Do you have any drawing reference sites that you like to use?

PIXELovely- this site has a timed setting as well as the option to choose nude or clothed figures, and it also has a section on animals!  The site is also working on getting enough donated to start a section based on practicing hands and feet, which would be great as well.
