  • I’d like to also add that this guy, as well as being in top form, is also extremely kind and done to earth. His figure drawing sessions at Space when I was in school were the best in town. Prettiest and craziest (and interesting) models in town. Word up Lu Cong!

    • ^ great to hear this sort of thing – i am always half nervous when i meet someone whose work i love, because if they are an ass then i will have a harder time liking their work

      • Def. can relate to that. Nothin’ but love for Lu Cong + his work. He puts in the hours. He stays humble. If only we were all (myself included) a little more like ’em.
