Doug Sneyd at Orbital Comics.

On Nov 16th at Orbital Comics, Playboy cartoonist, Doug Sneyd hosted a life drawing master-class with Manko modelling. This event sold out within 3 days of being announced and judging by the feedback from attending artists, the model and venue staff is likely to be the first of many.

Manko, inspired by Doug's pin-up illustrations prepared two very different looks for the night. 

This week on friday the 23rd Nov 2012, Doug returns to Orbital for a conversation with artist & curator Jason Atomic. This is a free event and will be moderated by Orbital podcaster Chris Thompson.
