I once came across an old man while making my way through Southern California. He was a retired salesman and told me he now spends his time nude modeling for a drawing class at the local community college. He would spend hours in the same position while students learned how to draw the human body in its rawest form. I had come to find out that there is an entire community of people who spend their days doing the same thing as this man. They all became friends throughout the years and would discuss the different postures they would pose while being looked upon by countless eyes. He told me how liberating it felt to become part of a person’s artistic expression. Even though he never talked to the students after the class had ended, he felt a connection with every one of them.
Become liberated like that old man and join me in being part of the collection of artistic expression for this month’s Traveling Yeti.
