Modeling is great because even though you may suffer nerve damage, cramping, limbs falling asleep, and overextended muscles while wanting to piss yourself and throw up, it is meditative. I have been working longer hours at work and haven’t been going to yoga, so it’s necessary. It certainly helps break up the work week.
Figure modeling is a tough job. I can no longer sit flat on the floor for extended periods without both legs falling asleep. Once I limped for 5 days after a pose that I chose myself.
It’s different than other work I’ve done before. I’ve been immortalized by countless artists. It’s not weird to see myself nude on a canvas anymore.
It makes me proud to be a part of their work. I don’t really want to be sitting on the floor for extended periods of time anyway.
