Sunday February 13th 2011 - Valentine Day Special - Cupid and Psyche

Psyche and Cupid at the fateful
moment...Venus will not be happy.
Valentine Special! This Sunday, Feel the Love with Cupid and Psyche modeling for your drawing pleasure!

Envious and jealous of the beauty of a mortal girl named Psyche, Venus asks her son Cupid to use his golden arrows while Psyche sleeps, so that when she awakens, Venus would have already placed a vile creature for her to fall in love with. Cupid finally agrees to her commands after a long (and failed) debate. As he flies to Psyche's room at night, he turns himself invisible so no one can see him fly in through her window. He takes pity on her, for she was born too beautiful for her own safety. As he slowly approaches, careful not to make a sound, he readies one of his golden arrows. He leans over Psyche while she is asleep and before he can scratch her shoulder with the arrow, she awakens, startling him, for she looks right into his eyes, despite his invisibility. This causes him to scratch himself with his arrow, falling deeply in love with her....

Sunday January 9th 2011 - Burlesque Dancer/Aerial Performer

2011_01_07_JordanThis Sunday burlesque dancer and aerial performer, Miss Gypsy Love will model for your drawing pleasure!

Born bright-eyed and attention-starved, Miss Gypsy first began to satisfy her hunger for "oohs" and "ahs" when she discovered fire performing in 2007. The spark within her began to grow and she has singed many enthralled audiencesthroughout the city with the "hotness" of her fire and hula hoop acts. Her adventures and constant desire to improve her ability to amaze have spread her blaze to absorb a few new tricks, including aerial performance. There's no hope of surviving this wildfire of a performer...she continues to consume her audience, setting them ablaze with their own hunger for more.
