Frenzy Lohan sighting at the Windup Space

IMG_4264-1

After taking a month off to get settled in at the Windup Space—and to see and do (or not, if we didn’t spend half a day waiting in a line, which was often the case) some really awesome and geeky shit at the San Diego Comic Con—Dr. Sketchy’s Baltimore returned to have our first model from the Charm City Roller Girls: the lovely Frenzy Lohan of the Night Terrors and Charm City All-Stars.

First off, the short poses:

Don’t be deceived by her delicate beauty, folks. Frenzy is seriously fierce. In her last bout before this session, she took out an opponent twice her size—but ended up taking a spill herself and screwed up her knee in the process. In fact, she probably shouldn’t have taken on the following pose—and yet she did, for our contest in which we asked our talented art monkeys to illustrate the very moment that resulted in her injury.  That’s dedication, people. And remember, for this kind of hard work, we show our models our appreciation with wild applause. And with fives and tens deposited in the little red tip box. Seriously.

So here are some of the entries for the “best illustration of Frenzy taking out her opponent” contest. First up, from Paul Moscatt:

Here’s our muse showing off Mike Hasson‘s entry:

The winner of this contest took home a copy of Where Madness Reigns: The Art of Gris Grimly, which was generously given to us by Baby Tattoo Books. I think I sadistically mentioned this at the session, but just in case I didn’t, I bought a copy of this awesome book from Gris Grimly himself, who then signed it for me, at SDCC. (BTW, while I was totally selfish in my quest to get some autographed Grimly goodness, we will be giving away some other signed items in the next couple of sessions, so keep reading.)

Here’s another piece by Kurt Aspland:

And from Brian Dugan (see more of his sketches from this session here):

For her next look, Frenzy surprised us with a Davy Crockett-inspired costume—and it happened to be Davy Crockett’s birthday.

Frenzy said she didn’t realize this; whether that was true or not, it was awesome. We were going to announce some contest that I can’t remember now—something about paparazzi and that other Lohan—but naturally, under the circumstances, we couldn’t resist asking our audience of artists to show how Davy Crockett would celebrate his birthday. So here’s Frenzy Crockett surveying the lovely crowd’s drawings:

And here’s Brian Dugan’s entry:

(Davy Crockett, a Charm City Roller Girl, and a Beastie Boys reference all in one drawing—pretty awesome.)

By the way, the winner of this contest took home a copy of Sparrow #3: Kent Williams, generously donated by the awesome folks at Atomic Books in Hampden. And yes, I did some more gloating, since I got Kent Williams to sign his giant book of paintings for me at SDCC, too. If it’s any consolation, my bank account is still seriously hurting as a result of my geekily indulgent week in San Diego.

Anyway, back to Frenzy. Oh wait, we’re at the last photo.

But hey, there’s a bunch more sketches. First, some short sketches:

moscatt1That one above is a one-minute drawing by Paul Moscatt. He was one of the two winners of the “left-handed” (or, in more PC-terms, non-dominant hand) drawing contest, btw. If you’ve been to one of our sessions, then you know what he won—free booze. It’s our way of punishing rewarding the steadiest hands in the audience.

Next, a short sketch by Felipe Goncalves:

Mike took his drawing from the last 20-minute pose and created this nice finished piece:

And last but not least, a collection of sketches from the evening by Annie Wu, with the last 20-minute drawing on the left, and ones and twos on the right:

Aside from being the only female artist in the audience who has sent us a sketch since April (seriously, ladies, why is that, when you make up more than half of the audience?), Annie also created the illustration for this kick-ass CCRG poster. (I think I may have freaked her out a little bit at a session in the spring when she entered a contest and I recognized her style and started squealing like a fangirl about how awesome that poster is.) So you could say it’s fitting that I’m concluding this endless post with her drawings.

Thanks to Jeff Schock for the fabulous photos, Don at Artist & Craftsman Supply on North Ave. for giving out free sheets of high-quality rag drawing paper, Bill and Scott for drinking beer while manning the door, Russell at Windup for the awesome space and bartending and tune-selecting. And, last but certainly not least, a huge thanks to the dangerous beauty herself, Frenzy Lohan, for being our wonderful model in spite of the bum knee.

So, join us this Monday, when we’ll have the simply stunning model and dancer Deviana Fox as our muse for the evening. Among the various awesome prizes we’ll be giving away that night will be a copy of Scarlett Takes Manhattan–signed, with special messages to a lucky Charm City art monkey, by artist and illustrious Dr. Sketchy’s founder, Molly Crabapple, and her partner-in-crime, writer John Leavitt. See you then!
