Nicolette Le Faye was one of our very first models, four years ago when we were young whipper snappers. We keep getting older and older, and grayer and grayer, and she still looks exactly the same (if you don’t believe us, scroll through the blog—I think she might be a witch, a la Stardust or some shit). Oh, for the days when we were wet behind the years, thought the world was our prawn, and we didn’t think twice before throwing a jar of pencils at a cop car.
Four years under the belt is some heady shit.
In any case, last session with the fabulous Nicolette Le Faye was our glorious Fourth Anniversary. If we ignore the sumabitch tow truck guy who dragged off our Zipcar truck an hour before the session, it was a glorious birthday. We gave away the first deluxe volume of Fables from Atomic Books for one contest and Sketch Theatre Volume 1 from Baby Tattoo Books for another, not to mention a lot of folks fell deep into their cups thanks to beer specials from Flying Dog Brewery.
Thanks to Christian Tribastone, John Schloman, Tim Kelly, Kat Parker, Katrina Schmidt, Kevin Yan, Stephanie Burgee , and Jeff Lance for sending in the sketches below.
A cornucopia of thanks to Nicolette Le Faye for helping us ring in our fifth year; thanks to our generous sponsors Atomic Books, Flying Dog Brewery, and Baby Tattoo Books; thanks to Russell for spinning drinks and serving tunes; thanks to Jeff for many of the crackling photos you see above; thanks to Styger for helping with the door, set up the stage, and shove the furniture around into whatever esoteric formation Russell thought was appropriate; thanks to everyone who scooted a chair around for us at the end; thanks to Alexis for speaking sweet, sweet words into the mic; FUCK YOU MR. TOW TRUCK DUDE; and thanks to everyone who showed up and twirled a pencil with us on our fourth birthday.
Next session is Monday, June 25th with the belly dancer extraordinaire Deviana Fox!

There will be scimitars. She’s one of the best of the best, folks. I don’t want to hear about it if you miss it.
Doors at 6, start at 7. 18+ to draw, 21+ to drink. Pencils, charcoal, & watercolors are fine, don’t bring anything messier or Russell will go all Hulk smash.
