I know a girl who’s tough but sweet…

Carlo Pizarro

Damn.

That’s for Candy del Rio AND the photography by Carlo Pizarro, her partner in Stereo Vision Photography.

Don’t know if you know this, but a lot of the photos for our flyers over the years have come from Stereo Vision.  You’ve been seeing their work for years, whether you realized it or not.

[Yes, years—this summer will be our 4th anniversary.  Expect lots of “lawks!” in our communiques from here on out.]

Candy did a bang-up job—there was all sorts of good drawing to be had.

1- and 2-minute poses:

Once everyone’s drawing hands were nicely warmed up, we took a quick breather so folks could top of their beers and sneak a coffin nail, and then it was time for the 5-minute poses.

The first was the non-dominate hand contest, where if you’re right-handed you draw with your left, if you’re left-handed you draw with your right, and if you’re ambidextrous I’m the Queen of England.

The two winners recieved something mysterious in a glass from Russell behind the bar.  We don’t monitor that shit for deniability reasons.

Another break so folks could call in flat tires/working late/stuck-in-traffic to their significant others, and then Candy del Rio did a burlesque number for ya.  The video camera messed up though, so if you missed it—well, that’s what you get.

It was then time for the 10-minute poses.

The first was our second contest of the evening, an Anti-Valentine Day’s theme.  The winner got to take home a copy of Young Romance: The Best of Simon And Kirby’s 1940s-50s Romance Comics from Atomic Books, which is in Hampden on the Avenue and Falls Rd.

Another break, yadda yadda yadda, and it was 20-minute pose time.  Our third contest of the evening was the best incorporation of “69” since it also happened to be our 69th session.  The winner received Visions From Within the Mechanism: The Industrial Surrealism of Jeffery Scott from Baby Tattoo Books.

Quick break and then it was THE LAST POSE, the pose where everyone must decide, “Do I bolt early so I can watch an episode Step by Step before bed, or do I say “fuck it,” line up three shots, and draw like Picasso on two boxes of wine?”

Thanks to Candy del Rio for a rockin’ session; thanks to her and Carlo Pizarro for letting us use that Stereo Vision photo above; thanks to our amazing sponsors Atomic Books, Flying Dog Brewery, What Katie Did, and Baby Tattoo Books; thanks to Jeff for the slick photos making up a good chunk of this blog; thanks to Russell for the booze, space, and tunes; and last but not least, thank you to Alexis for keeping a firm grip on the mic and the emergency dead-man-switch connected to the gas line.

What’s next?

This Monday, Little Luna’s LAST SESSION EVER.

 Photo: Cheryl Fair

That’s right, Little Luna is pulling up stakes and heading south, supposedly to New Orleans, but she’s pretty quick with the lies, so Lord knows where she’s going or why.  Is she running from the mob? Did the fuzz catch on to that whole smuggled Mima birds thing?  Is this all a trick so we’ll all buy her drinks for a month and then she’ll put on a wig and swear to be her own twin sister just moved to Baltimore?

Just. Don’t. Know.

Little Luna is one of our most popular models ever, so don’t miss her last session.  Doors at 6, start at 7.  18+ to draw, 21+ to drink, 92+ to set Russell’s beard on fire for a $1.
