Life drawing tribute to the DYLAN DOG comic!
For this session, a team of Italian models, Tatiana & Claudio, will be introducing us to their favourite Italian comic book hero, the paranormal investigator Dylan Dog.
In this Italian horror comics series set in London, Dylan Dog is a penniless “nightmare investigator” (“L’indagatore dell’incubo”) who defies the whole preceding horror tradition with a vein of surrealism and an anti-bourgeois rhetoric. His clothes are one of his defining characteristics: he always dresses the same way, in a red shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans; he bought twelve identical outfits after the death of his lover Lillie Connolly. Dylan cares little for many aspects of modern life. He hates cellphones and to record his memories, he still uses a feather-pen and an inkpot. Naturally, he loves literature (poetry in particular), music (his tastes range from classical to heavy metal), and horror films. He is also a hopeless romantic who loves and loses a new woman in nearly every issue. In fact, in a majority of his cases, his clients are women, with whom he often has a sexual relationship.
With costumes and props, our beautiful Italian models will evoke the occult detective tales of this ‘Nightmare investigator’, taking you through evocative, romantic, inspiring scenes, inviting you to create your own storyboard.
