Sketch backlog bonanza!

So, I promised to post a bunch of sketches that didn’t make it into the appropriate session recap for whatever reason, and here they are–a week later than promised, but better late than never, I say. Which is why we still will take any sketches you finally get around to scanning and sending to us, even if it’s from a session from last November. And then we’ll post them four months after that, and everyone can reminisce or something . . .

Anyhoo, first up–a lovely sketch of Sable Sin Cyr from the April 27 session, by Andrew Spangler:


Andrew was, technically, the first to submit his sketches of Sable for this session (and sadly, only one of two that did… [sigh]), but I only fished his email out of the spam folder a couple weeks ago. Dunno how the hell it got there, but I’m sure glad that I eventually did check the folder for non-spam items. Bad, bad Alexis.

Next, here’s a sketch of  Viola Van Wilde from our first anniversary session on June 8, created by none other than our generous sponsor, Don Sinish from Artist & Craftsman Supply (which is just down and across the street from our new venue, Windup Space, on North Ave.):


And, here’s a whole slew of sketches from Chip Molter, who sent these in a whole big batch. First up, a drawing of Bambi Galore, from the March 9 session:


Then, of Lena Grove, from the March 23 session:


Love this Munny contest entry featuring Little Luna, from the April 13 session:


For those of you who weren’t at our sessions during which we were giving away mini Munnies from Atomic Books, artists competed for these awesome DIY vinyl toys by incorporating a Munny into their drawings of the model. Each mini Munny comes with a surprise accessory–anything ranging from a cell phone to a protest sign.

Next, sketches of LiiLii Lipstick, from our May 11 session:



And my absolute favorite of Chip’s drawings, from the “best depiction of Capt. Kirk hitting on LiiLii” contest, which I’m fairly certain he won:


And that’s it for now! Don’t forget–tonight’s our first session at the Windup Space (12 W. North Ave., at the corner of North and Charles)! The lovely Lucille Lingerhans von Spankenstein will be on hand to provide you with some sassy inspiration, and we’ll be giving away more fantastic prizes! Drawing starts at 7 p.m., but show up early to get a good seat and check out the awesome work in the Vs. show, still up till the end of the month. And remember, we’re now an 18 & over event. See you tonight!

One lonely but lovely Lena sketch, plus Little Luna tonight!

So here’s the one sketch we received of Lena Grove from our March 23 session. A huge thanks to Gene Azzam for sharing:


These were from the two ten-minute poses–the contest again was to use the two poses to create a two-panel narrative, and the prizes again were wood panels from Artist & Craftsman Supply.

We also stumbled on Andrew Spangler’s blog, which has not one, but two awesome vector illustrations of Lena based on his sketches from the 3/23 session. Yeah, yeah, I sound like a sad little broken record every time I say this, but we love getting your sketches, so start sending them to us again.

The five-Monday month of March gave us a little break, but not only will we be back at Dionysus tonight for more drawing and debauchery, but Little Luna of Gilded Lily Burlesque will be back to inspire our talented audience. And we’ll be giving away more prizes from Artist & Craftsman Supply and Atomic Books, plus the first of three awesome books we’ve gotten from our newest sponsor, Baby Tattoo. See you tonight!


(Thanks again to JimmyC for the awesome photo of Little Luna!)
