Lay Figures - part 1

Conté crayon on black paper (A4)
Perhaps not every artist has one, but many do. I'm not sure if they get used very often, though. Mine doesn't, although I do like him (actually, I have two; this post is devoted to the larger one, which is affixed to a pole). The Twitter event / hashtag #stilldecember (still life) encouraged a few of us to treat our lay figures, or artists' manikins, as subjects in themselves.
The little figures even started having adventures...
