In the 19th century, when human dissections were showcased to the public, they were featured as an evening highlight of education mixed with entertainment. For artists, familiarity with internal anatomy is indescribably helpful when drawing bodies, whether they are animals, clothed people, or video-game monsters.
While Stephanie Stewart-Bailey leads a public dissection of a to-be-determined animal specimen (died naturally), drawing instructor Scout Tran-Caffee will describe, in words and in charcoal, how these internal structures relate to artistic anatomy in humans.
You are encouraged to bring sketchpads to make your own anatomical studies, or just sit back and watch the dissection. The evening will consist of a 45-minute dissection/lecture (with Q&A), followed by an hour to continue drawing the anatomical subject and hang out.
Original pages from the Failing Sky graphic novel, and other artwork by Dax Tran-Caffee, will be on display in the Patreon office gallery.
Tickets are free, but please RSVP via Eventbrite. Attendees are encouraged to sign up to the Failing Sky Patreon campaign, which is 85% to its most important funding milestone.
