Jessica Whiteside: Dr. Sketchy's SF and Pin It Up, Babycakes!

My friend Jessica Whiteside is keeping verrrrry busy! She's hosting this week's Dr. Sketchy's on Thursday, plus she's continuing work on Pin It Up, Babycakes!, a show she's co-curating with Alice Stribling in February. The opening night date is now set for Wednesday, February 5!

This Thursday, January 15, Dr. Sketchy's San Francisco will be welcoming the bodacious, the busty, the burlesquer Holly Highbeams (aka Holly High-Beemz) as the guest model/performer!

Up next for Ms. Whiteside is an event that I've been waiting a long time for. Pin It Up, Babycakes! She's co-curating the show with Alice Stribling, which will be at 111 Minna Gallery for most of February. It's an exhibition of pin-up art, and opening night will feature burlesque performances and our very own Kitten on the Keys as MC! Some of the artists exhibiting include Molly Crabapple (founder of Dr. Sketchy's), UK artist Emma Mount, Darling Propaganda, and both Alice and Jessica.

Here's some of the information I've received and gathered about the show:
