This was a great and very informative podcast with Simon Tolhurst, life drawing teacher and artist. He provides great tips and insights about life drawing, as well as talking about his own experiences as an artist. I have no doubt this will be really interesting and useful to a lot of people, and I hope you enjoy it.

Here are some samples of his work, be sure to check out for more:

    I really enjoyed this podcast, Simon is very insightful. however towards the host – when interviewing people its really distracting and frustratingly annoying when you consistently repeat “yeah” and “right” while your listeners are trying to pay attention to what the guest is saying. just let him speak. he doesn’t need your continual confirmation and we don’t either – bit of a rookie error. thanks anyways.
