Dr. Sketchy's SF on Thursday, October 23, 2008

My good buddy Jessica "Tink" Whiteside will be hosting the next Dr. Sketchy's SF this coming Thursday! Full disclosure requires me to say that I'll be helping with setup and clean up, so I've got a vested interest in this event. :-)

I've never been to a Dr. Sketchy's, but from what Tink has told me, it goes something like this. You bring a sketchbook and some drawing tools. Graphite pencils, color pens, dry mediums like that. And basically you get to sketch a burlesque or other performer after s/he finishes a performance. I believe Bombshell Betty will be performing and modeling this time. And Randy "Anormous" Johnson will be the MC and musical guest, I do believe. The Dr. Sketchy main website (www.drsketchy.com) describes it as a different kind of life drawing class.

There will be contests and prizes. Not sure what they are, yet. And music. And drinks. And a chance to meet and mingle. It's supposed to be a fun and sexy time. A chance to create art in a non-stuffy atmosphere.

Here are the main deets:

So I'll need to drag my sketchbook and drawing instruments out of mothballs. Eep. Maybe I can find an old beret, too. Haha.

Oh, and Alice Stribling will be doing some sketching today at 111 Minna Gallery from 6pm to 9:30. She'll be working off some photos she took at Tease-O-Rama. It's Sketch Tuesday, and you can watch artists create art for free. Afterwards, you can buy some of the artwork, which is not free. ;-)

Okay. That's all the sketchy things I have for now. So if you want to draw some sexy performers, come on out to Dr. Sketchy's on Thursday. Even if you haven't drawn in a while or don't consider yourself to be a great artist, come on out and get in some practice. Or experiment!
