Photos from Dec 8th with La Malicia Pajarita and Paco Fish!

Dec 8th’s session was EASILY one of the best yet.  If you missed it, well, I just don’t know what to tell you.  La Malicia Pajarita and Paco’s performance was so good, I’m just going to give into the impulse and put up almost every single photo we took.  Why should be obvious as you start to go through.

As usual, the first set of poses were the 1- and 2-minute poses…

Next were the 5- and 10-minute poses, which were easily the crowd’s favorite.  La Malicia and Paco really did do an amazing job….everyone was laughing so hard I’m not sure if anyone got any drawing done or not.

Easily the funniest set of poses I’ve seen yet.  I wasn’t even drunk (yet) either.

After that, it was contest time…..the first contest being the habitual (or at least so far) draw with your off-hand with the winners, who are obviously too sober, being forced to correct that mistake.

Special thanks to Atomic Books, who kindly donated a gift card for the next contest…if you don’t know where they are yet, one, I’m going to assume you just moved to Baltimore, two, it’s on Falls Rd. just off the Avenue in Hampden.  We’re going to have even more sponsors in 2009 btw, it sounds like.

In any case, then it was time for more poses.

We can not thank La Malicia Pajarita and Paco Fish enough for what is easily one of the best sessions we’ve had yet.  Also, thank you to Dionysus for letting us drop pencil shavings everywhere (Oh, and if you didn’t know, your bartender Andrew had his 30th birthday the very next night and got to break open a pinata in the bar…he hates anyone mentioning his birthday so it only feels appropriate to include something about it here)….what was I talking about?  Oh yes, and thanks to Jeff for photos and Jeff and Bill for helping us scoot furniture around, run the door, and lots and lots of other random things.

Our next session—our first of 2009—will be January 26, Monday, from 7 to 10 o’clock with the glorious Lucille Lingerhans von Spankenstein.   As soon as all this holiday crap is done with, we’ll have some more info up with the flyer and all that stuff.  In any case, have a good holiday (Notice that?  Yeah, that’s right, we are all up on that whole War On Christmas stuff.  Yep, that’s right, I said it.) and we’ll see you in January.

Some photos from June 8th.

Well, the June 8th session was a success. 🙂 Special thanks to everyone that came out and to the absolutely gorgeous Jezabella Able for modeling with one twisted ankle and one burnt ankle (she had a bad week) and to Dionysus for letting us tear up their dining room and then put it back together again. Special thanks also to Jeff our photographer, to Bill for bouncing on his birthday, to Eliza for doing Jezabella’s makeup, and to Scott for taking Eliza home when she drank 8 bloody mary’s and fell over. 🙂

Thanks again to Dionysus and Lynn and Andrew for making us cold drinks and a really good breakfast.

Our next session is July 14th, Monday, from 7 to 10. Hopefully the weather will be kinder to us (98 degrees? Really? Is that necessary?) and we won’t drink so much this time.

No promises on that last one though. 🙂

We learned a couple lessons too….we’re not going to do the table charge thing…it makes sense for a lot of Dr. Sketchy’s because of the layouts of their venues (ie, they don’t have a lot of tables). We figured out pretty quickly on Sunday that it didn’t work for us though and dropped it. So if you want a table (versus a chair) next session, it won’t cost you an extra five bucks.

We’re also going to bring a bunch of fans if Mother Nature decides to take out half of Baltimore’s air conditioners again. 🙂

If you have any questions about the session, the next one (July 14th), or just want general life advice on whether you should finally forgive Aunt Clarisse for what she said on Memorial Day about your son’s birthday shoes after she had 13 mojitos at the barbecue, just email us. We got answers.
