“One time, I saw this ad posted online about needing drawing models for the local college. I figured that I would look pretty good up on that little platform, and I wasn’t really that shy about my body, so I thought why the heck not? I showed up and modeled for a couple of sessions, and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the third modeling session I showed up for was beyond uncomfortable.
The class began, and I was taking off my robe in order to get into position. That was when I saw my cousin, sitting at a drawing easel, getting ready to draw this random dude in all his glory. I walked out, gave her a little wave, and I shrugged. This was completely bizarre. All I could do was let it all hang out. Let’s just say that family gatherings have always been a little awkward since that day. But I mean the drawings all turned out pretty well, so that worked out at least.”
