Grotesque Burlesque Figure Drawing @FckingForty fundraiser.

We are hosting a special fundraising night for the FckingForty Graphic Novel project.

What is #fckingforty?
Beloved GB member Ed Siemienkowicz proclaimed his 40th year as the worst of his life. Break-ups, career challenges, and existential crises cast a dark shadow over a year that culminated in a pancreatic

cancer diagnosis. Ed believed his struggles would resonate with others so he scripted and started illustrating a graphic novel about that fucking year. At age 43, he tragically passed away, leaving his work unfinished. Now, 100+ artists (many of them fellow GB members) have gathered together to bring Ed’s story to life.

On April 5th, 2018 a Kickstarter campaign will launch to fund ‘Fucking Forty’. This special GB event will serve as a funding boost and celebration of Ed and his interests.

We will be donating all profit from the night's session (+$40 - get it?) and the models will be donating their fees.

The lineup includes equal-30min poses by:

Vanessa Walilko (Ed's soul mate)
Brit Thill (in a Bowie inspired costume)
Chrystyne (in a Star Wars Ensemble)
Katy M (in a special #fckingforty inspired pose)

We will also have GB scenes from the book printed out for all to see and a special 11x17" GB-#fckingforty exclusive print for all Kickstarter supporters.
