I bet you thought we forgot, didn’t you? We didn’t, we’re just a little behind with having done four Dr. Sketchy’s in one month. 🙂
Anyway, Nori Zay, fashion and fetish model extraordinaire, was our lovely muse this past March 8th. Not only was she a stunning eyeful, but an amusing earful as well as she kept the audience entertained with everything from random trivia to a slew of hilarious (and some hilariously awful) jokes. I have a vague memory of one involving Super Mario’s pants, but I’m afraid it’s lost in a booze-fueled haze at this point.
In any case, take a gander.
Our first contest was the opposite hand drawing contest, where if you’re right-handed you draw with your left, and if you’re left-handed you draw with your right, and if you’re ambidexterous, you get an “eat shit and die” look for being the freak of nature that you are.
Of course, all contests are optional, including this one, since we don’t want anyone sipping any of Russell’s delicious concoctions (the prize, in this particular case) who doesn’t want to—especially since said concoctions can often double as paint-remover when the tag-kids gang-up on the poor bathrooms.
The second contest, inspired by Nori’s Gaga-esque shades, was to include the paparazzi in your sketch. The prize was a lovely black frame from Artist & Craftsman Supply which is pretty much across the street at the corner of North and Howard. Hopefully the lucky winner will put it to good use in the first ever Dr. Sketchy’s Baltimore art show this June. Hopefully all of you are saving up you sketches. 🙂
Contest #3 was the best incorporation of the mystery accessory included with a Raffy Mini-Munny vinyl DIY doll from Atomic Books in Hampden, with said doll being the prize. (First one on the left below.)
Upon opening the silver bag, we discovered the mystery accessory was four itty-bitty giraffe shoes.
BTW, Atomic Books is having their Munny show April 2nd….tell me that isn’t a slick flyer design below too…
Last but not least contest for one of the 20 minute poses was, per Nori’s request, the best incorporation of a mythological beast, with the prize being Visions From Within The Mechanism: The Industrial Surrealism of Jeffery Scott (1019) from Baby Tattoo Books.
Super-duper thanks to Nori Zay for being our wonderful muse and entertainer! Special thanks too to our sponsors Atomic Books, Artist & Craftsman Supply, and Baby Tattoo Books for providing wonderful prizes to vie for; to Bill for busting heads at the front door and working on the Dr. Sketchy’s Baltimore documentary, to Jeff for all the great photos you see above, and to Russell for slinging drinks and having us all at the Windup.
Our next session is April 12th, 7 pm to 10 pm, at the Windup Space with Viola Van Wilde of Gilded Lily Burlesque for a special Twin Peaks themed session to coincide with the Windup’s David Lynchfest on April 10th!
In a day or two, we’ll put up the G40: The Summit recap with Sugar Ann Spice and L’il Dutch, and then a few days after that the recap of contortionist and performer Rebecca Nagle’s session (wait till you see the poses from that one, Lordohmighty). So, if you want us to include your sketches from either of those sessions, better get them to us pronto! Remember, you can also join our Facebook group and upload them there.
