​In an effort to celebrate the people who keep our city interesting, Daily RFT is launching a new weekly blog post, "Bold Types," featuring photos and street interviews with the fashionistas, fresh faces and free spirits of our town.

Where does your last name come from? It's Romanian. I was born here, but that's where my parents are from.

What's the coolest thing people don't know about Romania? I've never been, but they're known as the little Paris. Their capital, Bucharest, has a lot of history. Their parliament is one of the biggest in Europe.

What do you do here? I'm enrolled in school. I do graphic design.

Is purple your favorite color? One of them. There are different shades, and it goes good with brown. I have brown hair and brown eyes, so it brings it all out in me.

Is this a leather jacket kind of a day? It's too hot now, but maybe it'll get cooler later on tonight, when I start drawing naked people.

You draw naked people? Yeah, I have to in my figure drawing class.

How old are the models? They range from 20s to 70s. It all depends on who's got the courage to sit in front of people naked for hours. I guess they're comfortable with themselves.

Does it ever get awkward? Very. Every day. For the first hour and a half of class I can't concentrate, and I draw my stuff the wrong way.

Do they ever make small talk? They look out into space mostly. I kind of refrain from talking and making eye contact because it's a little weird. I haven't made friends with any of them.

It's also funny how majority of the people that have commented on this new series are men. Nothing positive all negativity...

This series has no journalistic or artistic merit whatsoever. RFT is going to creep around asking pretty girls if they can take their picture, then throw in a dude occasionally in order to cover their tracks. The comments are typically in the creep department, the whole idea plays into the subjects' sense of vanity, and actual depth when it comes to selection is obviously lacking. Who doesn't know already that pretty faces sell newspapers/get readers (otherwise why would they slap it on the header?), but RFT is hitting a new low here and I think they should get back to real journalism before they lose more readers.

She doesn't seem to have a problem with having her pants so low that 1" more and we could see the pussycat.

Hmmm.  Maybe being naked would make her more comforatble and help her relate to her subjects more.  Let me be the first to volunteer to paint you naked Diana!  UhvbnJonathaned.

You know I kind of have to agree with 'graestan'...  I'd certainly be down with an RFT "Hot Chick of the Week" post, but really, some hot girl who shops at Hot Topic and Claire's really isn't a 'fashionista' or a 'bold type.' 

And hey, I'm sure Diana is a lovely woman, but the eighties called, and they want their sunglasses back.

Awww... that kinda sucks man. When you're off you should go to the Central West End and the Loop and you can meet many beautiful women.

Hey JJ the jet plane! I am comfortable wearing those pants and that bustier top because I'm NOT fully nude. I like fashion and weird styles as well. And lets really be serious and get technical, 1" more and we could see the pussy cat? No 1" and we would see what people like to call pubic hair :) So no offense taken here.. I like to hear or read what people have to say about me. Its interesting and cool to see someone reads the RFT.. Take care! :o)

Nudity will never make me relate to my subjects more. Some people are comfortable being nude in front of others and some may not. Then there are those that might just enjoy it too much. So that's where having a class like that makes things seem a little fishy. I have a little conservative views on certain subjects so that's why I can still wear this clothing and not feel like I'm completely naked. :) I still have my morals and values so until that day comes (maybe when I'm a good looking old lady) I'll pose nude at a university or college..haha. And Jonathan the only man that will ever be seeing me naked and painting me will be my boyfriend. Capisce? ;o)

Haters gonna hate I guess... :opFashionistas, fresh faces and free spirits are the 3 types of people listed in the new weekly blog post. Also don't judge and assume that I call myself a fashionista or where I purchase my clothing at. It only makes you seem worse than you really may be. Chill out and just stop having such negative things to say about RFT. You see it caught peoples attention to be more interested in reading the RFT regardless if the new blog post has no journalistic or artistic merit. Are you angry or jealous your midriff wasn't posted? :)
