An 84-year-old man who lives alone in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, has found happiness working as a live model for art students at local universities, where he has been posing nude.

Wishing to use the pseudonym Li Jun, the man said he does not have many friends. He has been modeling since April, but he wants to keep his new pastime a secret from his children.

Li's wife died 15 years ago, and he lost a son in 2007. He still has three children, two daughters and a son, now grown, who come see him every month.

He said that he loves being around the art students during his modeling sessions, and delights in their youthful energy and lighthearted attitudes. Though he rarely talks with the students, he likes to have a look at their paintings. When he sees one he admires, he feels gratified.

Li is not directly hired by the universities, but rather a central agency calls him whenever a school needs models. Payment varies according to the amount of clothing in a session. He receives 100 yuan ($15.81) for each sitting he does completely nude, giving him an income of about 1,000 yuan a month. However, during the summer break, Li had to take a hiatus from this new part of his life.

Students appreciate Li's participation in their classes, but teachers said that because Li is advanced in age, they do not ask him to hold demanding poses.
