About Life Drawing


MY INTRODUCTION TO HEN PARTY LIFE DRAWING & BEING BOOKED AS A MALE LIFE MODEL POSING NUDE FOR HEN PARTIES

Hen party life drawing actually began and originated in Australia almost simultaneously in both Melbourne and Sydney then spread to the UK in circa 2004 / 5. 

I must confess that after I took my own very first enquiry to model for a hen party back in 2005 comprising of 38 Australian women in Notting Hill, London - I came off the telephone completely surprised at the request and then after the phone call had sunk in and been processed, I then thought "Why didn't I think of that!!"

Although I had already modelled for all-female life drawing groups / classes held in mainstream art colleges, evening classes, art galleries, private groups of female artists, life drawing classes for women and at least 25 all-girls schools for the sixth form classes having met the female art teachers from the respective schools at evening classes or summer courses by that time in 2005 in my capacity as a reputable, popular professional male life model and the fact that I was used to posing nude for females, I was still surprised at being booked for a hen party!!

The lady who initially made contact with me was organising entertainment for her sister's party and explained that her mother was an artist, she had attended an art college and that her sister was a jewellery designer so all in all a very artistic family.

When seeking new ideas for the party entertainment her mother has suggested that they held a life drawing surprise session for the younger sister getting married as party of the day's events and tasked her daughter to find a suitable male life model based in London...

So a big thank you to that particular lady for finding me to then book me for my very first party and for planting the seeds in my mind to offer my professional male nude life modelling services for hen parties and then other non-hen party bookings.

As my life model website appeared number one result in Google at the time and still continues to do so, I then began to mention hen party life drawing in a small paragraph within my main life model website accompanied with a small selection of photographs taken at my parties until I then was overwhelmed with more and more bookings.

I then developed and created a separate website to offer hen party life drawing in both London or throughout the UK and then of course the whole creative concept began to spread very quickly within the life modeling / life drawing fraternity or community before spreading to become a national surprise sensation. 

Any other individual or company offering hen party life drawing in the UK and claims to have originated the idea is not being honest with themselves or deceptive to the general public who view their websites. 

I am often told by artists, art teachers / tutors, other life models, anyone with a true knowledge of hen party life drawing activities and also ladies booking my services over the years or when I first began to offer my life modelling services for parties that I was probably and almost certainly the very first male life model based in the UK to offer and be booked for such life drawing / life modelling for hen parties.

I have to admit that my success, idea and popularity modelling for hen parties was and is completely by default and that I was asked to do so at the random request of my first party and then many other Australian ladies in the UK to begin with.

The artistic activity grew and grew in the UK and the rest is history for me with my own vast wealth of experience in my hen party life modelling career to date...


THE EMPHASIS IS ON ENJOYING EXCITING FANTASTIC FUN & CLASS ENTERTAINMENT

My life drawing sessions for parties are most certainly NOT like the usual, formal, serious and studious life drawing classes held in art colleges who run studio classes in silence with no conversation or without ambient atmosphere, so I use the word "classes" in the loose sense of the meaning in connection with life modelling for hen parties, although there is always plenty of "class" with me as your chosen male nude life model to entertain and pose for you of course.

So in this sense and in essence it is party class entertainment with lots of fun and laughter thrown in for good measure!!

I am always able to offer you artistic direction, encouragement and inspiration with art / life drawing tips as well as lots of fun hen p[arty life drawing games suitable for all skills and for all the girls to join in together and play as an artistic art group in unity.

The life drawing session with me entertaining you all lasts for circa one-and-a-half hours in duration for your reference when planning your events, intinerary and activities for the day or evening.

My parties are always a fantastic, fun and creative time for all the ladies with constant fun banter with excitement and games reflected in all the photographic images keeping all the ladies entertained or amused.

The number of ladies present at all my parties can range anything between 5 to 30 or more in number and no party is too small or too large to book me to pose as a male nude life model.

I do offer a discounted price fee for smaller parties which is negotiable between us so please refer to my Prices link for more details.
HEN PARTY LIFE DRAWING CLASSES WITHOUT AN ART TEACHER OR ART TUTOR

I usually and nearly always model on my own without an art tutor or art teacher.

I am able to tailor the hen party life drawing session with a bespoke artistic activity to suit your individual or group party needs or requirements with competence complete confidence.

I have been a professional life model since the age of 19 with a vast wealth of experience so I am able to guide you through a selection of poses with my own tutorledge and knowledge advising you on drawing techniques without the need for an art tutor.

HEN PARTY LIFE DRAWING CLASSES WITH A FEMALE ART TEACHER OR ART TUTOR

If you wish your life drawing class to be a more formal and structured format as those held in genuine educational life drawing classes at the art or fashion colleges, then I am more than happy or able to offer this creative concept on my own offering plenty of artistic life drawing tips and offering encouragement for the ladies with my own artistic advice.

I do also occasionally work with professional female art teachers / tutors based in London when requested and should you require a tutored life drawing class so please feel free to ask for the availability of a female artist, teacher or tutor.

YOUR DRAWING & ART MATERIALS

I am willing and able to provide all the drawing materials that you will need in certain circumstances and this is negotiable at a reasonable additional cost. 

However this is not always possible as I am frequently booked to model for two or three parties on any one Saturday throughout the year and it is not feasible or viable for me to carry all the drawing pads coupled with the art materials travelling by public transport. 

I can recommend that you purchase A4 drawing pads, lead pencil, sharpeners, erasers and coloured crayons/pencils (to put some colour in my cheeks!) from reputable online mail order companies or outlets such as Poundland, Tiger and Wilkinsons as art shops can be expensive.

Then all you will need is me to "rock up" (no pun intended!) and arrive for the life drawing session which I guarantee will be unlike any other life drawing art class you may experience.
MY PERSONAL ASSURANCES 

I assure you that your party and life drawing session will always remain sophisticated, stylish, classy and an artistic affair.

I am in fact very quintessentially aware and astute in analysing the mood and personalities of the ladies in the first few moments when I make my "grande entrance" into the party.

I am always able to immediately gauge and psycho-analyse to mood of the parties enabling me to perfectly pitch the life modelling poses and tone for the life drawing session to suit either the more shy, prudish, conservative ladies or to please the more outgoing, confident, adventurous, playful parties.

In fact, even the most reserved ladies attending my parties kindly tell me that I always mange to pitch if just right for all the ladies involved including everyone in the fun and games as well as the bride-to-be of course so it becomes a real group activity for all to enjoy on your special day or evening together.

In my vast wealth of hen party experience with hundreds of party bookings that I have NEVER encountered a bad reaction, even with the most shy, reserved or prudish of ladies at parties. 

As the bride-to-be realises that I am a life model and NOT a stripper, she usually becomes more relaxed and then grows excited about the concept of life drawing coupled with enjoying some artistic, creative hilarious fun. 

I am always able to find out more about the hen herself and the nature of the ladies when I am liasing with the bridesmaids / hen party organiser who has initially booked me so that we ensure that there is no room for any "faux-pas" or going beyond any personal boundaries or comfort zones.

My hen parties are all about the life drawing with fun tasteful nudity and I would like to state for the record that I never ever transgress any personal boundaries or comfort zones.

However with that in mind, some playful fun and naughtiness is bound to ensue on occasion with hen parties coupled with natural exuberance, excitement and the adrenalin of the moment.

I always know just how far to go and far not to go with the naughtiness or being playful which I do not initiate, but I am more than happy to play along with the girls if they are playful in high spirits wishing to pose for photographs and you can view some sample images within my Naughty Gallery link.

In other words if the girls are feeling naughty, cheeky and playful then I will play back...

Some parties on the other hand can also be more conservative taking afternoon tea with their life drawing session which again is absolutely fine and there are many images within my website that reflect this fact.
ELEMENT OF SURPRISE SCENARIOS

The advantage of booking me personally and then liasing with me directly as opposed to booking a life model through an agency or hen party company offering hen party life drawing classes is that you can discuss all the details of the hen party logistics, element of surprise scenarios, the personality of the bride-to-be and perhaps more details about the other ladies attending.

I always give my party organiser a courtesy phone call or we speak at her convenience in the week prior to the party booking to pay special attention to the element of surprise and this then enables myself and yourself to know exactly what to expect prior to the actual hen party.

This can include you all drawing something else to begin with and I will be waiting outside the door in the wings as-it-were after being secretly and discreetly let in by one of the ladies in which case you can settle all the girls down with their drawing pads to begin drawing a fun object or to play a drawing game of your choice which I will leave to your imagination and discretion.

The ladies will all wonder why they are drawing at a hen party so you can then suggest that whatever you are drawing is boring and that you are going to find something more interesting to draw - Which will be me waiting in the wings as it were being the "something" more interesting to draw. 

You can then introduce me into the female fold perhaps saying "Girls! You will not believe this, but look what else I have found to draw".

You could even commence drawing the bride-to-be for five minutes on the pretence an artistic activity then writing good luck message on your drawings as a momento.

I can then enter the room wearing just shorts, a towel or completely naked wearing just my "birthday suit" at your discretion to suit the party introducing myself to the ladies working my charm and charisma so the ladies graciously compliment and tell me!

If I am wearing some shorts then the ladies may then wonder if I pose completely nude so we can tease them by me wearing them until the big moment of my revealing all in style...

I can assure you that this "grande entrance" will guarantee surprised laughter and giggles letting the fun, frivolity and frolics begin by wishing the bride-to-be a very happy, hippy hen party gently whispering to her and reassuring her that I am NOT stripper, but a life model to entertain her with a tasteful, creative, artistic life drawing class much to her visible and palpable relief.

I am always aware of what to expect with the hen's and ladies personalities having liased with the organiser prior to all my parties, yet some parties still manage to surprise me, but I immediately analyse the mood of the party, personalities and most importantly the bride-to-be knowing exactly where and how to pitch the modelling session.

If you have any other suggestions of surprise scenarios with your own ideas perhaps to suit the party theme or personality of the bride-to-be, then please feel free to discuss this with me when we have our initial chat regarding the finer details and logistics of the booking.

Another fun scenario incorporates my acting skills adopting the role of a maintenance man sent on the pretence of investigating a problem in the bathroom whereby I feign surprise meeting the ladies then go upstairs only to return in just shorts or a towel declaring there is nothing wrong with the plumbing...

I could always rely on my drama acting experience and pretend to be a genuine waiter or the manager if your party is to be hosted in a function room commencing by entering the room charming the ladies whilst pouring drinks only to then reveal myself as the nude male model.

If you wish to aim for the maximum shock factor and with the space or room allowing - I can adopt a classical, statuesque pose waiting completely naked in the room where the life drawing party is to be hosted waiting for the bride-to-be followed by the other ladies to make their entrance casting their eyes and vision on me for the first time.


PARTY POSES, GAMES & FINAL SURPRISE FOR THE BRIDE-TO-BE

It has nearly always been suggested by the guests that at the end of the drawing that the bride-to-be or even the bridesmaids (at the choice of the hen to get sweet revenge for her own initial surprise with me!) pose with myself to suit and respect their own personal boundaries and comfort zones of course.

The pose usually lasts for approximately 5 minutes for photographs and drawings. I am always aware that the whole life drawing session has been a surprise for her entertainment and NEVER over-step any boundaries or comfort-zones with her at any time during the pose keeping still-In fact it is usually the highlight of the drawing session and so much fun for all.

I always seem to gauge if the bride-to-be is comfortable with the idea of posing with myself and I NEVER push or suggest this idea myself always being careful not to take any of the ladies out of their comfort zones.

Sometimes the bridesmaids or other guests will be encouraged to pose with me at the culmination of the entire life drawing session, but if not then we can finish with another pose of your choice.

We can be both inventive and creative playing some fun games when drawing to make the life drawing session even more interesting fun. 

Remember that my hen and party life drawing sessions are NOT the serious life drawing classes you would undertake in an educational establishment by any means.

You can also arrange some token first, second and third prizes for your friends after the drawing with different catagories such as best technical artistic, funniest, worst or even the sexiest drawing when you can write good luck hen party messages for your special friend.


PLANNING YOUR HEN PARTY WITHOUT A HITCH...

Well at least with one "hitch" that is the hen getting hitched... 

I modelled for a party in Whitstable, Kent in July 2013 and the ladies had hired the most spectacular house overlooking the sea.I decided to make my way to the town earlier that Friday day thus making a day-trip combined with my party booking on Friday evening at the hired house. 

Whilst I was in the town the hen party organiser phoned me to frantically inform me that although she had meticulously pre-purchased all the art pads and drawing materials then were on route from London and had forgotton to pack them. 

She asked if I might be able to source the materials and that she had discovered an art shop in the main shopping centre. To my disbelief the shop had closed for a half-day so my only option was to find the pads and materials elsewhere. 

I discovered a "99p" shop further down the quiant high street and they had a very limited selection so I can only say that the girls were highly amused to be drawing my naked torso on My Little Pony drawing pads...

So almost without a hitch!


SOME LIFE MODELLING & LIFE DRAWING JOKES

I was once asked "Do you ever paint yourself Simon?" To which I replied "Well I used to but it's such a hassle to wash off!"

You can always read my new book before the life drawing party which is titled "How to Get A-Head in Life Drawing!"

I was once asked what my own taste in art is to which I replied "I'm not sure - I've never bitten any!"

It could be an interesting idea to have the life drawings laminated to use as place mats at the forthcoming wedding reception...

I am not a male life model but a male life "muddle"

And of course "Does my bum look big in this?" Hee Hee!

I am rather well-endowed (if not too much information!!) and one ex-girlfriend did once ask me "that if all men think with their penis - then am I a genius??" 

I am a genuine member of the high intelligence organisation MENSA so there must be some truth in her statement with many a true word said in jest, so therefore it is big and it is clever.

My endowment has even been called a "Penisaurus" so you might need larger sheets of paper for the finale drawing of my manhood on its own with a good luck message for your special friend bride-to be to complete the session Hee Hee!!
