Tonight, I attended a life drawing session as an 'artist'. This activity was for research purposes. You see, a few weeks ago, whilst visiting my local art supplier (as you do?), I was casually offered a job as a life model. Yep. So just clarifying, this would involve me getting my kit off and posing for a couple of hours... naked (ahem, sorry i mean 'nude').
Reasons to do it;
Earning upwards of $90 for a 2 hours session, a prospectively exciting part time job, providing a service to the art community... Did i mention the money?
Reasons not to.
The high level of exposure, the scrutiny and judgement, the constant need for exfoliation and precision fake tan application, potentially having my own crowd of perverted onlookers studying my body.
After two weeks I still remain undecided. And so. My question to you readers.
Would YOU be a life model. Why or why not?
Based on your answers, i'll make my decision. I appreciate the help. Keep reading to find out.
