Next Dr. Sketchy’s Oct. 12 with Paco Fish!

ds26web

Join us at the Windup Space for more drawing, drinking, and crazy contests on Oct. 12, when Paco Fish of Gilded Lily Burlesque, Charm City’s own boylesque star, will be our fabulously mad muse for the evening! It’s been almost a year since we’ve had this vaudevillianous genius pose for us, so don’t miss this session! As always, doors open at 6 and drawing starts at 7–show up early to get a great seat! We’ll have more crazy drawing contests in which we’ll be giving away more prizes from Atomic Books, Artist & Craftsman Supply, and Baby Tattoo Books!

“But, but, but, Aaron and Alexis, I want MORE Paco Fish….3 hours of him posing for my drawing pleasure just isn’t enough!”

Well you’re in luck, cause if there ever was, this is the Month of Paco.  I’m grabbing and pasting this next bit from his Facebook page….take a look…..(At the very least, Alexis and I will be at the Windup Show this Friday and at the Gilded Lily Burlesque show on Halloween)…

 

Back from paradise… into Madness!

Mon at 8:08pm

“Onward,” I cry, “into madness!”

That’s my new battle cry. I spent the last week-and-a-half in Hawaii, getting more sun, fresh air, and exercise in ten days than I had all summer combined. I went surfing, snorkeling, sky-diving, hiking, swimming under waterfalls, swimming in caves, sleeping on the beach, and eating fresh fresh fresh fresh fish and fruit. And I’m feeling revitalized and ready to take on this CRAZY month of October. I have 8 shows in October, featuring 3 new acts, in new venues, with new collaborations. I’m very excited about it. I hope you are too, and I hope you get to see it. So here’s some of what we’ve got. More details will appear in future bulletins as they get confirmed, so please take the time to read each one.

I love you! I can’t wait to perform for you again!

-PaXOXO

Price: $7

Dr. Sketchy’s is a chain of cabaret life-drawing sessions that circles the globe from Hollywood to New Zealand. Started by Molly Crabapple in 2005, Dr. Sketchy’s is a little bit burlesque, a little bit art studio, and a little bit hair of the dog. Maybe the whole dog.

The models can be burlesque dancers, trapeze artists, drag queens, roller-derby girls, your hot next door neighbor, off-duty cops, and ex-KGB stenographers. It’s a whole grab bag of fun. Well, without the grabbing.

Dr. Sketchy’s – Baltimore is Charm City’s local branch run by Alexis de la Rosa and Aaron Bush, hon. This means that not only can you attend a lasciviously decadent life drawing session on the second Monday of every month, you could also get mugged, shot at by the police, lose your house in a shady real estate deal, or install a questionable statue at the local train station. Dr. Sketchy’s is responsible for none of that, by the way.

Join us at The Windup Space for more drawing, drinking, and crazy contests on October 12th, when our fabulous muse for the evening will be Paco Fish!
