ds14web

This Monday:  Bambi Galore of DC Gurly Show and the DC Libertines! We seem to be filling up quick these days folks, so show up early if you want a good seat. Alexis is no longer blowing through tissue boxes like they’re going out of style, so she’ll be back; we’ll have prizes from Atomic Books and Artist & Craftsman Supply . . . BTW, we’ve been asked what types of prizes are yall interested in? If you’ve got suggestions, send us an email or post a comment below.

So Monday, 7 o’clock!

See past Dr. Sketchy’s models doing their thing…

So I think I’m finally kicking this cold/flu thing, just in time for Aaron and I to see this show this Saturday night:

Gilded Lily Burlesque Presents the Debut of: The Nearly Naked Truth!!

Show at 8pm. Tickets are $10.
00

Load of Fun
120 West North Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21201
..
Come join Baltimore’s premiere burlesque troupe -Gilded Lily Burlesque- on February 28th for The Nearly Naked Truth! It’s a nostalgic romp back to the days when men were men and dames were kittens. These lovely ladies (with the help of Paco Fish, outstanding news reporter) will help you navigate the slippery slopes of sex, drugs, plaid pants and communism.


But, don’t get too uptight daddio! After witnessing a spicy shimmy here and a saucy shake there, you’ll be happily sliding down that slope, too! So let Gilded Lily Burlesque reveal to you the Nearly Naked Truth- it’s the American thing to do!

The members of Gilded Lily Burlesque include…

Maria Bella
Little Luna
Viola van Wilde
Sable Sin Cyr
Paco Fish (MC)
Lena Grove
Lucille Lingerhans von Spankenstein”

Recognize anyone in that roster? You should–if you’re a Dr. Sketchy’s regular, you’ve probably drawn almost all of them.

I said this before in an email to our mailing list, and I’ll say it again here: if you’ve had fun drawing our models, you really owe it to yourself to see them actually perform. Aaron and I have seen them perform a number of times now, and we’ve had a blast every time. Show up early, since you won’t be able to get advanced tickets for this show–their Valentine’s Day show sold out, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this one does, too. See Paco’s blog for more info, but seriously–go.

PS–Don’t know where Load of Fun is? For shame. It’s on the corner of North and Howard–across the street from our sponsor, Artist & Craftsman Supply. Oh, and apparently CityPaper will be at the show, covering a story on burlesque in Baltimore.

PPS–Keep reading for a recap of our most recent session. I’m totally annoyed that I had to spend Monday night hopped up on decongestants and trying not to cough up a lung, instead of drawing the stunning Lady Vile. If I don’t get to see these amazing “chimp attack” sketches Aaron keeps talking about, I’m seriously going to cry–so send them in.

Recap of Lady Vile’s session on Feb 23rd.

Well, Monday seemed to well enough without Alexis to keep an eye on us.  Nothing caught fire — actually, that’s not true.  Apparently Dionysus’s roof nearly caught fire from a chimney fire next door before the session even started, but we didn’t have anything to do with that so we’re going to assume it doesn’t count.

Lady Vile was stunning, course you should be able to see that.  Special thanks to her, the crew at Dionysus, our sponsors Atomic Books and Artist & Craftsman Supply, and to Bill and Jeff for helping make up for Alexis’s absence (and again to Jeff, for these awesome photos).

I’m pretty sure the two drawings below were the winners of the “How Lady Vile got her name” contest.  (The prizes were sketchbooks from Artist & Craftsman.)

We’ve already got a bunch of sketches emailed to us (some of the best were from the last contest, “Incorporate a chimpanzee attack” 😉 )…we’ll give it a few days for more to come in and then put some up here.

‘Til then, mark your calendars, folks: our next session will be Monday, March 9, with Bambi Galore!
