I thought this was a special treat for the class, we got to draw drapery and a very unique face that we normally dont ever see. Some people
liked it, some didnt it. But that is what art is all about. Variety. Id love to use Kuniko for a portrait sculpture, and i shall in the future. Great model.
You can see her website below and contact her for modeling.
If you been around the art scene a while you realize that asian models are next to impossible to get. Specially Japanese models. I’ve seen my share of half asian models(parents are white and asian). But never somene that was pure asian. We do have a Korean model named Molly, but she doesnt pose that often, she did pose for the visarts marathon.
Kuniko even did a traditional Japanese dance at the end
