PHOTOS -TAAFI MASTERCLASS: Drawing From An Animator's Mindset by Charlie Bonifacio

The animation workshop by Charlie Bonifacio was amazing. Huge props to the folks at TAAFI for organizing this animation masterclass and to George Brown College for hosting it. I took breaks from the drawing sessions to document each section of the masterclass while Charlie was instructing and the photos are below.


The majority of my arts training is in fine art and while I'd read about or practiced several of the techniques Charlie went over during the weekend previously (Like the exercises in The Natural Way to Draw), having Charlie demonstrate the exercise's in relation to animation within a class setting opened up a whole new world of expression for me. It was super cool and I highly recommend anyone to take a class from Charlie if they get a chance to.  

The model for the first day of life drawing sessions was Charlotte Stewardson. I have to say that she was one of the best life drawing models I've seen. Her poses were full of energy and she wasn't afraid to stretch her body to extremes for 2-5min poses, which provided ample time for the participants to put down an expressive gesture drawing. I can't speak for others in the class, but I kept all my life drawings to use as inspirational reference in the future. If you'd like to contact Charlotte about modelling you can use this email address: charlotte.stewardson.model@gmail.com.
