Badly Drawn Models

Georgia Weeks and Hazel Graye Eakman

Are you all familiar with Badly Drawn Models? Lisbon-based artist, Sean Ryan, has become a pop-culture phenomenon by posting his sketches of models, designers, and other celebrities online.  Some of his most popular subjects include Cara Delevingne, Coco Rocha, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel and the list goes on and on. Basically its now come to the point that being one of his drawings is a sign that you've "made it" in the modeling world. These drawing have been getting a lot of press lately, most notably in the Huffington Post, Elle Magazine, Refinery 29, i-D Magazine and Buzz Feed.

In a collaboration with an editorial in the latest issue of Open Lab Magazine, two of our models got side-by-side sketches by Sean Ryan himself!  Georgia Weeks and Hazel Eakman have now joined the club of models that have been immortalized (badly), and we think it's awesome.  Their sketches can be found on the Open Lab Instagram.

Ali Stephens, a model we discovered years ago, has also been sketched and is included on the Badly Drawn Models Instagram page.  Ali is one of the most successful models we have ever managed, and it doesn't surprise us to see her on this page.
