Drawing the Wildman

These are some of the drawings created during the first Wildman life drawing class.

It took part on 20th October at the Horse Hospital in Bloomsbury and it was one of the events curated for the Artist Ronny Long's show 'My  Life on Earth 1991 - 2002.'

Ronny and Bigfoot: Although Bigfoot was initially a source of fear for Long (as a child he would frequently obsess over Bigfoot roaming around his neighbourhood or finding his way into the family home), the creature has fueled much of his work. From childhood doodles and drawings of Sasquatch through to his most recent cycle of Bigfoot paintings, the idea of a human-like creature existing somewhere outside of society, unknown, unseen and untamed, has proved integral to Long’s vision.
