Girls against boys.

So, something that’s been frustrating me lately: even though the attendance at our sessions is more or less evenly split between men and women—sometimes the girls actually outnumber the guys, which surprises some of our friends who assume that it’s only guys who want to draw our models—since late spring, the artists who’ve been sending us sketches have been men. Annie Wu ended that trend last month, but still, she was the lone female artist who shared her drawings with us.  What gives, ladies?

This time around, the lovely Lily Stark White has been the one woman to send us her drawings:

We also had some people find us through two blogs, both by women, so we’re going to return the favor—even if they didn’t send us their sketches themselves. 😉 (To be fair, this past session I relied too much on the reminder cards I handed out to solicit sketches from folks and forgot to actually remind everyone while on stage.) Check out Bridget (Vaughn)’s Art Blog and Kristin Nohe’s Suburbs blog for their awesome drawings of Deviana.

And, lastly, here’s a sketch of Deviana from our door guy, Bill:

Obviously, Bill’s a guy, though he whines like a 4-year-old girl about how we never post his sketches, even though we link to his blog on our front page. So there you go, Bill—I ended this post about how we don’t get enough sketches from women with your unmistakeably male drawing.

Anyway—sketches. We love getting them—from everyone.

Don’t forget, we’ll have the lovely Elle Devene of Gilded Lily Burlesque posing for us this Monday night at the Windup Space—and check out Gilded Lily’s show with the Baltimore Improv Group tonight at the Creative Alliance. Hope you have your tickets already, since they’re probably selling out as I type this. Couldn’t get tickets? Then check out the Xotic fashion show at the Windup Space tonight instead.

And then there’s Hampden Fest tomorrow. Stop by Atomic Books and say hi to Benn, who’s given us a copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies *and*  Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters to give away on Monday.

Oh, and 2nd Saturdays in Station North is tomorrow, too! Lots of fun—and free—performances!

Whatever you do this weekend, have fun, and see you on Monday!
