Society of Illustrators Events

For those of you in the New York area:

Syd Mead, production designer for such classics as Tron, Bladerunner, and Aliens, will be giving a lecture at the Society. Ballistic Publishing has a quick interview with Mead here. Of which, my favorite line is. “Honestly, I get scared shitless every time I start a new, big job.” Something for students to know: It never gets easy.

Society of Illustrators
: 128 East 63rd Street, New York, NY 10021
Thursday, October 19th / 6:30PM / $20.00
/ For tickets call: 212.838.2560


Jazz-and-Sketch

Every Tuesday night the Society hosts a life drawing sessions with live jazz. This is always fun and mellow night. All levels of artists are attened. These are not classes so no one is judging the work. There is also a bar, for those that want to “loosen up” their drawing...or if, like me, you don’t want to draw at all. Most weeks, the models are nude, but every now and then it’s a theme night — French Revolution costumes, lavishly tattooed people, etc.

Every third Thursday of the month they throw in another jazz-and-sketch, except this one comes with a light buffet. I’m almost always at that, since the board meetings are conveniently scheduled for the third Thursday of each month.

Every Tuesday: 6:30-9:30PM
$7.00 Students with ID. $12.00: non-drawing attendees. $15.00 all others.

Third Thursdays: 7:00-10.00PM
$10.00 Students with ID. $20.00 all others.

How're y'all stocked for male models? I've been meaning to get back into that.

You should call the Society. Lynne Foster is the woman that hires all the models, ask for her contact info.

Once I played Rom, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have Rom Gold. He gave me some Runes of Magic Gold, he said that I could buy Runes of Magic money, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some buy Rom Gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell cheap Runes of Magic Gold to anyone who want.
