Atomic Books, Maria Bella, and the new flyer.

Monday, Sept 22, from 7 to 10 is the next Dr. Sketchy’s…Maria Bella of Gilded Lily Burlesque is going to be our fabulous model, so make sure to remember your contacts.  Jay Calvert took the photo above btw, and Alexis did the flyer design.

Not only that, NOT ONLY THAT, but Atomic Books is our first official sponsor and are helping us out with the prizes this time around, so, if I was you, I’d start putting some thought right now into how I was going to cheat and this time around.

No, Bill, you’re not eligible.

(If you didn’t know, Atomic Books actually hosted the national Dr. Sketchy’s tour when it came through Baltimore last year.)

Atomic Books is having their 16th Anniversary party at the store on Oct 3rd…there’s going to be a ton of comics people and bands.  Check it out.

Umm….what else….oh, we’ll have photos from the last session up in a few days (our photographer has been on a bender or something and isn’t returning phone calls because he thinks we’re the bar).

Oh, and I’m watching the news while I type this… know those new trash cans all over Baltimore?  Apparently they cost $600 a pop.  See, not only does Dr. Sketchy’s keep your drawing skills honed to a razor’s edge and molest your liver twice a month, we keep you IN THE KNOW.

Hey, Molly has a show in Baltimore starting tomorrow.

Molly Crabapple, Dr. Sketchy’s illustrious founder, has some art included in a show starting tomorrow (Sept. 5) at the Definition Gallery on 1800 Fleet Street (which I believe is at the corner of Ann St.) It runs until Sept. 27. The opening reception is tomorrow from 7 PM to 11 PM.

From Definition’s website…

Echo [ek-oh]: a sympathetic or identical response, as to sentiments expressed.

Definition Gallery presents “A Dozen Echoes,” an inspiring ensemble of a dozen female artists from across the United States. Each artist explores the unifying circumstances of being a modern woman in the 21st century while simultaneously reflecting on women’s past roles in history and culture. The gallery selected the artists for their ability to convey these personal and universal experiences with painstaking detail. The exhibition demonstrates a mastery over a variety of mediums; from traditional glazes to contemporary photography.

Alexis and I will be there tomorrow night, so if you’re up for some art in Fells tomorrow, we’ll see ya there….
