Pratt Draw-a-thon 2012

Last night/this morning was the annual Draw-a-thon at the Pratt Institute. It's a marathon drawing session with multiple set-ups of 18 models, running from 7 PM to 7 AM. I've always wanted to go, especially considering it happens just a few blocks from my apartment, but I always find out about it after the fact, so I was excited to actually hear that it was happening in time to attend. I didn't do the full 12 hours, I started to get bleary around 3:00. But it was a fun time and I got a lot of work done. And there was free pizza!

One of the things they did was post the models' names on the schedule of what was happening in each room. A lot of the time, I don't know the names of the people posing in these sessions, so that was a nice little humanizing element to the exercise.
