Femme 6’s Poetry in Pasties tonight!

Okay, so we’ve slacked off a little (hey, we’re technically on break, so that’s okay, right?) and haven’t finished the recap of last month’s session with Femme 6. But you can catch her—along with other Dr. Sketchy’s models, specifically Maria Bella, Paco Fish, Marla Meringue, and Roma Mafia—tonight at Mobtown Theater, in Poetry in Pasties. Here’s a bit about the show:

There will be gravity-defying feats of breathtaking beauty, original writings by the performers themselves, retro beat poetry with a twist, classical poems re-imagined in acts of striptease, comedy and drama, a special tribute to Charm City, and many, many more surprises to stimulate you– intellectually! 😉 All of this for only $10?? WOWEEEE!

Write this down where you won’t forget it:

THIS SUNDAY, August 14th
DOORS AT 8:30, SHOW AT 9!
only $10 at the door, and there’s booze!
Mobtown Theater at Meadow Mill
3600 Clipper Mill Rd
Hampden, Maryland

Do yourself a favor and come satisfy your craving for a mind-body experience like no other. Poetry in Pasties!

We’re sure your weekend could use a little more culture and hotness, so end it right with some literary striptease.

So, since we’re been taking our sweet time to put up the recap of Femme 6’s session with us, consider this the last call for sketches of our lovely model from that session, folks. Scan (or shoot with your camera phone) your drawings and send them to us at drsketchysbaltimore(at)gmail.com, or post them on our Facebook page’s wall. If you haven’t liked our page yet, do yourself a favor and go do that now: we update that page more often than the blog, so if you’d liked us already, you would have gotten a reminder about Poetry in Pasties before now, and you would have seen photos from our last session. (You could have also seen photos earlier if you followed us on Twitter.) But, since you’re reading this blog and we like you, here’s a photo from that night.

Other awesome stuff happening this week: Maria Bella will be a guest performer at Trixie & Monkey’s Summer Camp show at the Creative Alliance, and Baltimore Comic Con is next weekend. If you’re going to be geeking it out at the con, be sure to stop by Paigey’s table in the artists alley to say hi and check out her work. And we’ll update the Calendar O’Fun with more stuff as we learn about them, just so you aren’t starved of burlesque goodness while we’re taking a breather.

Speaking of our summer break, you might be wondering when it’ll be over. We’ll be back in little less than a month, on September 12, with Dahlia Derriere as your muse for an evening we’re calling “Dahlia Derriere Does Desert Dames”. In case you missed it, here’s a photo from her last session a little over a year ago:

See the rest of the photos plus artwork from that session here. We’ll post a flyer here soon—but it’ll probably be on our Facebook page quicker (hint, hint). Check back this week for that and our Femme 6 session recap, but while you wait for the photos, remember to see Femme in the flesh at Poetry in Pasties tonight.

Opening night of Closer tonight!

 

Don’t forget, opening night of Closer with Viola Van Wilde of Gilded Lily Burlesque is tonight, not to mention a ton of other talented folks!  Bar scene and free food afterward!  Check out the details below.

Thursday, February 18th – March 13th 2010

Closer
By Patrick Marber

There’s a thin, shaky line between love and hate… and it always seems the people we love most are the ones we hurt most often. In Closer, playwright Patrick Marber gives us a brilliant and painfully honest exploration of the brutal anatomy of modern romance. Modern day London hosts four strangers as they meet, fall in love, fall out of love and back again in this poignant, dark sketch of one or our favorite pop culture topics- The Relationship.

Thursday 2/18 at 8pm, Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm, Sunday 2/28 at 3pm.  General Admission $15, Students and Seniors $12. Tickets are available at the door or through Brown Paper Tickets.

Photos from LiiLii’s session!

Lots of great photos and drawings from May 11th’s session with the gorgeous LiiLii Lipstick.  Thank you to LiiLii for being our muse, Dionysus for hosting us, Bill Lindsey for driving us all over the place at the last minute, Jeff for the beautiful photos, and our sponsors Atomic Books, Artist & Craftsman Supply, and Baby Tattoo Books!

I would like to NOT thank Windows for crashing three hundred times while I attempted to put this post together.  Three hours and counting now for just one blog post . . . but no one cares about cranky operating systems, let’s get to the pretty pictures and sketches.

Check out LiiLii’s shoes on this next one.  She held that pose for 5 minutes.  I don’t think I would have made it two, but I’m a wuss.

The above was done by Annika Romeyn.  Check her sketch blog, it’s pretty damn neat.  (There’s another sketch at the end of this post too.)

These next couple are from Brian Dugan . . . (the photo in between is the pose he was drawing for the last one . . . I think)

If you want to see more of Brian’s work, take a look over here.

Next up are a few from Gene Azzam . . . the first one was from a contest incorporating anything starting with the letter “L”.

The next contest probably had the funniest entries I’ve seen in a contest yet.

“Your version of Captain Kirk hitting on LiiLii.”

IMG_3553-1

The one on the left reads, “Please James, you smell like a Ferringi.”  He responds, “You remember I’m captain of the Enterprise, right?”

The one on the right reads, “You know, Miss, Red Shirts don’t live long in space.  Perhaps you should remove it.”

I don’t think folks thought too highly of Kirk’s chances.

“Jim, readings look unfavorable.”

“Spock, I always think there are . . . possibilities.”

We gave away Munnies from Atomic Books in Hampden, watercolors from Artist & Craftsman Supply on 137 W North Ave, and So Good for Little Bunnies from Baby Tattoo Books.  Our next session is June 8th and we’re going to have all new stuff from everyone to give away.  (Baby Tattoo sent a huge box of stuff….I’ll take a picture later this week and put it up later on in the week.)

Next session is June 8th with Viola Van Wilde of Gilded Lily!  No Memorial Day session since we’ll all probably be drunk at someone’s barbecue somewhere.

So no Dr. S this coming Monday…..you know what you should do to make yourself feel better?  You should go see Gilded Lily in The Nearly Naked Truth at Mobtown theater on Friday….half the folks who’ve ever modeled for us are in it, and frankly, it’s the best damn burlesque show we’ve seen them do yet.  It’s FIFTEEN BUCKS.  You know what this would cost in NYC?  It would be THOUSANDS, and I swear this isn’t hyperbole, and I’ll call you a liar if you repeat this, but they’re a lot better than the couple shows I’ve managed to catch up there.  Check’em out.

If you don’t know where Mobtown Theater is, it’s in Meadow Mill about two stops on the light rail up from MICA (the Woodberry stop…big building with a clock tower thing on it).

Here’s a last photo and sketch for you…
