I recently attended the second in what will be a monthly series of Copslay Life Drawing Nights at the Stone Branch School of Art in Rockville, Maryland. (I wasn’t able to attend the first event due to scheduling conflicts.)

The school is located on the second level of this shopping center that has this really awesome donut shop known as Duck Donuts.

Like Krispy Kreme, Duck Donuts offers freshly baked warm donuts. But Duck Donuts takes it even further by offering donuts customized to your specifications. You fill out this checklist for each donut.

Then they serve your customized donut in this box.

I ordered a chocolate donut topped with crushed Oreos and a drizzle of hot fudge sauce. My donut tasted very excellent. This store also sells rubber ducks in addition to donuts.

So I reached the Stone Branch School of Art. I found that it’s a really cool looking place. The next photo shows what the wall in one of the bathrooms looked like.

There were all kinds of neat artifacts that were obviously meant for drawing and painting classes.

I eventually reached the classroom where the cosplay drawing event took place. I saw a pair of artists doing some drawings of their own before the event began.

There were snacks available, including this cupcake with writing on it that came from Comic Cupcakes.

During breaks the models mingled among the artists while resting their bodies from striking poses in costumes.
