Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School – February

Tonight at Dr. Sketchy’s host Vivienne VaVoom served as the model. As mentioned in a previous post, Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School was created by Molly Crabapple in Brooklyn. Each month a local bar hosts the two hour life drawing class which features burlesque dancers, drag queens, go go dancers, or any other fun and strange persona. Not your typical art class for sure.

After cleaning out her basement VaVoom found weird and unusual tech props she had once used in a show – joystick bras, motherboard outfits, that sort of thing. And plastic ray guns. Sweet.

Elaborate corpse

This is the “elaborate corpse” – every two minutes you pass the drawing to the next person. After ten minutes, five people have worked on your original sketch. Here’s what my original came back as (I must say I dig the black outline and red sketchy marker).

twenty minutes

This is my favorite sketch of the night. This is VaVoom’s homage to Bettie Page, complete with Bettie wig and weird sculpture art she converted into this Jupitar bra-thing.

Dr. Sketchy’s November

I returned to Dr. Sketchy’s this month and was pleasantly surprised to see so many people. At least 20 people attended tonight’s drawing session, and Vivienne Vavoom was back to host.

We had an excellent model tonight who was tons of fun and had great costumes – including sexy librarian! Yay!

And I won a prize. Again! A crazy book on enchantments. More money from ebay!

For the winning drawing, we drew for one minute, then passed the drawing to the person to our left. We did this for ten minutes. The part I drew is in pink.

Here are my fave drawings of the night:

Dr. Sketchy’s Extravaganza

I went to my first Dr. Sketchy’s drawing night this evening. What fun!
Dr. Sketchy’s is a “cabaret-inspired alternative life drawing class.”
The event was created by Molly Crabapple in Brooklyn, NY back in 2005 and has spread far and wide across the United States and every continent except Antarctica at bars all over the country. Burlesque dancers, roller derby girls and other interesting people are the models, and they wear funky costumes!

Here are my best drawings.



This one won a prize!


This one won too!


And here are the super prizes I won.

I met some interesting people, enjoyed a tasty beverage and listened to great music. For those of you interested in joining the shenanigans next month in Denver, check out the local Dr. Sketchy’s MySpace page.
