Photos from Oct 13th, Sable Sin Cyr!

Last Monday was amazing.  Sable Sin Cyr of Gilded Lily Burlesque was stunning, lots of friendly folks showed up, and I didn’t even fall down once this time.

I’m not joking about the lots of folks by the way.  Look at this.

I ain’t kidding about that whole “come ten minutes early folks.”  It was packed and eventually we had to turn some folks away.  We’re going to remove some more tables this Monday and see if that gives us a little more room… be forewarned, tables are first come, first serve.

Anyways, did I say Sable was amazing?

There lots of contests as usual…with prizes of gift cards and Moleskin books provided by Atomic Books (there’s even more stuff on Monday too).

Here’s a photo of the winners of the “Draw with your Off-hand” contest having their celebratory Dirty Girlscouts (it’s a shot).  I censored out their faces, and the guy behind, just in case they want to run for office one day.  That fellow under the yellow arrow….I can tell you right now he ain’t running for anything.  From?  Maybe.  For?  No.

I have no idea what’s going on in the next photo….apparently something was very amusing.  Since I’m not in the shot, I have a sinking suspicion it was me doing something stupid.

For some reason they’d all stopped laughing by the next shot.  Got distracted I suspect.

Special thanks to Sable Sin Cyr, who without, we would have been drawing, well, a big empty yellow couch.   Special thanks to Lynn and Dionysus as well, who without, well, we would have been doing this in the middle of the street and causing no-telling how many fender-benders.   Jeff did an absolutely amazing job with photography, turning in his best set yet, and both Jeff and Bill helped us move all that silly furniture around, which believe me, takes a few minutes. 🙂

Our next session is this coming Monday, Oct 27, 7 – 10 pm at Dionysus, featuring Nicolette le Fay with some Halloween goodness. 🙂

Missing your sketch pad?

Someone left their sketch pad at Dr. Sketchy’s last night….fire us an email when you read this and we’ll find a way to get back to you.

If you don’t, I’m going to scan all the drawings, post them here, and tell everyone I did them.  Oh yes, I’m that guy.

There’ll be an official update when we get the photos, but goodness, a ton of people showed up last night, so much that we started having to turn people away.  Boy, we hit that point a lot faster than we thought we would.  Next session, we’re going to remove about half the tables and replace them with more chairs so things aren’t quite so packed.  So consider yourself forewarned, if you want a table or a good seat, make sure to show up early.

Sable was amazing by the way….as were the sketches done for the Atomic Books prizes.   We’ll throw up a proper recap when those photos roll in, but, until then, just know that things were pretty amazing.

And yes, the final contest was “How would Sable capture a bike thief?”  Definitely scan and send those in….they deserve a whole post in of themselves. 🙂

Next session is Oct 27, Monday, 7 – 10, btw.
