June 16, 2016 Las Vegas Session. A June Bride

Good Morning Art Monkey's,

Last night's session at the Artifice was so much fun. Thank you so much for all who came out for inspiration and motivation with their art.   Veronica Manhattan definitely knows how to pose for the artists, especially while wearing a gorgeous wedding gown that took over an entire stool.  Not to mention the second gown which showed just a little more… ahem...

If you'd like to see more from Veronica Manhattan and her out and about shenanigans, check out the show she produces and where she may be next on this page here.  If you ever do get a chance to see her perform, you won't regret it.

Below, I'd like to share some photos/sketches from a couple of last night's artists, Steven Horlock and Ashanti Ghania.  So far, they were the only ones to share with us their amazing talent.

Crazy 2016 Year So Far

2016 has been one crazy busy year so far!

Let me first start by saying how so very sorry I am for not keeping this blog up to date, like I was hoping for last year.  Between full time job, part -time photography job and going back to school part time to earn my business degree, my time management went out the window for blogging.

At the moment I am on a summer break and re-organizing my time management calendar in order to fit everything in, so at least you faithful followers to Facebook and twitter will get a chance to see past sessions and hear about upcoming sessions.   I am also going to be up to date on my own photography blog MHA Moments

The sessions this 2016 year, thus far, have been incredibly fun. Beginning the year with Anastasia Sinn who amazed our art community with some eye opening metal through skin and awesome gas mask in chic fashion.  (photos to be edited in later).

February paid tribute to one of the most amazing iconic musicians, who had suddenly past away the month before,  David Bowie.  Jyl Agustin was our amazing model, who not only captured David Bowie from Ziggy Stardust days, but portrayed the awesome Jareth the Goblin King.  You can see a little video clip from Periscope here.

We then whipped towards March and had the amazing Snakebabe and JP Nomi Malone as our models.  They both came up with sexy and scary costumes to pose in.

April session, we had new comers to Las Vegas, but not new to modeling Suzil Von and Tommy Lazer.  They are slowly, but steadily getting a fun and amazing reputation here in sin city for burlesque scene and our awesome community.  They definitely will be back again and you can check out Suzil every Wednesday at the Downtown Crown' mid week menagerie.

Our May session had a last minute fill in (cancelation at very last minute), but what an amazing Filler she was, Lolita Haze The Nymphet of Burlesque she came out to model in the clutch and I am so thankful for her bumpin and grindin performance she shared with the Art Monkey's.  Her modeling expertise are phenominal and she is welcome ANY time.  You can check her site out for upcoming burlesque shows she will be performing at or if she hosts her very own show.

Tonight's, June 16, 2016 session will have Veronica Manhattan, a June Bride.

So come on out and get your Drinking, drawing and debauchery on from 8 to 11pm at the Artifice

I hope to make an update once a month or week, or…

Upcoming Sessions:

July 21, 2016 (birthday session)

until next time...
