bathtub gin and irving berlin

Saturday saw December's outing for our Sketchcrawl North group. This time we did something a little different by attending a Dr. Sketchy event. Dr. Sketchy is an alternative life drawing class with gorgeous burlesque girlies, in all sorts of cheeky poses, as our models. It was Sheffield's debut Dr. Sketchy event and I think I can speak for most of our group when I say we hope it's not the last! It was nothing but fabulous.

When we go on out on our sketchcrawling get-togethers I like to try to work in a different way. To play a little, if you will. And, Saturday was the perfect opportunity to do that. This is the only sketchbook drawing I made. I also took a roll of wallpaper (well, poster paper but you get the picture) and some thicker marker pens. I'm wondering quite how I'll upload that? Maybe a little video is called for.

I don't want to bang on about this too much but necessity dictates; if you are in the UK you can now get your hands on my new zine 'How t Draw like a Loon' HERE. I'll list it for the 'rest of the world' after Christmas.

Cheers, my dears!

Great you attended Dr Sketchy. I've been 4 times this year to the one in Wellington, New Zealand. I was disappointed with the models the last time I was there so haven't been back for 2 months. Glad your one went well :) Upload the drawings from it! (You might also want to upload them to the Dr Sketchy site)

Thanks, Will. Our models were stunning. I didn't realise you could upload to the Dr. Sktechy site. Is it the main site? Cheers.

I've been meaning to go to a Dr Sketchy for ages (and, darn it, looks like I missed a Japanese-themed one in Edinburgh last month!). I think I'll make it one of my new year's resolutions to go to one!

I love Dr. Sketchy's! They do such a great job with the one here in Richmond, VA, USA!
