First Dr. Sketchy’s of the year, Monday, January 26th! With Lucille Lingerhans von Spankenstein!


Your holidays sucked, didn’t they? No scantily-clad pretty folk lounging about for you to draw? No one gave you a shot for drawing with your left hand? Did it seem irresponsible to spill a pint of beer on your drawing and pretend it was an accident so you could give it that Dr. Sketchy’s touch?

Well, you’re in luck. Dr. Sketchy’s-Baltimore is through with our travelling, we’ve paid bail for everyone arrested in the eggnog/polar bear incident, and our hangovers from visiting the Dr. Sketchy’s in NYC have receeded far enough for us to start whole new ones.

And look at that flyer…..Lucille Lingerhans von Spankenstein of Gilded Lily Burlesque is who you were waiting for over that long, dark, gloomy holiday break. Trust us, she’s a LOT more fun to sketch than your grandmother’s cat.

Not only that, but Artist & Craftsman Supply, on 137 West North Ave in Station North, along with Atomic Books on 1100 W 36th St. in Hampden, will be providing all sorts of prizes for you to compete for while you attempt to capture Ms. Spankenstein’s glory on paper.

As always, we’re at Dionysus (who’s been very nice not to call the police on anyone yet), from 7 to 10 pm. So gear up, dust off your pencils, sharpen your liver, and tell anyone who gets nosy that you’re heading to the library.

Photos from Nov. 24 with Viola Van Wilde.


Viola Van Wilde’s session on Nov. 24 was one of our best yet, though frankly, the photos alone should tell you that. 🙂  Special thanks to Viola Van Wilde of Gilded Lily for giving us some absolutely stunning poses and costumes to draw, and who without, we’d have been drawing that red couch.


Thanks to Atomic Books for sponsoring us and providing prizes to give away and to the folks at Dionysus for the space and getting us liquored up,  Jeff for photography, and to everyone who attended for putting up with my apparently complete lack of ability to count change.

If you missed the 24th, don’t cry…..well, maybe you honestly should a little, Viola had a NUN HABIT… really can’t top that……BUT, if you missed the 24th, our last session of 2008 is tonight,  Dec 8, at 7:00 with TWO models, La Malicia Pajarita and Paco Fish.  You should probably cry if you miss that one too.
