Recap of the Halloween Dr. Sketchy’s with Nicolette le Faye!

October 27th’s Halloween session went great….free candy for all (apparently nobody likes Whoppers either, there’s a giant bag of the things sitting on the table in front of me as I type, and no matter how many I eat it never seems to get any smaller…..the Reese’s Cups lasted to maybe the third one-minute pose), Halloween themed contests with prizes from Atomic Books, and a copious amount of alcohol consumed.

Special thanks to Nicolette le Faye, who was amazing (as you can see), Jeff for photos, Bill for keeping the door running smooth, the Dionysus staff for getting us drunk, and Lynn of course for letting us use the dining room in the first place.

A quick note about upcoming dates.

If you take a note of the sidebar on the right, we’ll be taking a break for the holidays…..MICA will be out of town, WE’LL be out of town, and everyone who isn’t out of town will probably have their schedule packed for the holidays. 

That would basically leave poor Bill hosting, posing, and drawing all at once, which, though Bill is great at multi-tasking, the image of him sitting by himself in front of a mirror, crying, trying to draw himself while simultaneously trying to collect a cover from himself is just too sad to contemplate.

So, our last date of 2008 will be Dec 8, and our first date of 2009 will be January 26.

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…..so 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. 🙂
