Those who know me will know I love to draw feathers, food and objects with my watercolour pencils.
This week shows a different side of my sketching . I went to Dr Sketchys Anti-Art School – described as “The world’s premier alternative drawing movement. Whether you’re an artstar or a scribbling newbie, Dr. Sketchys is the perfect place to get your fill of drawing fun. Come sketch glamorous underground performers, listen to good tunes, and drink great cocktails.”
The costumes started off very elaborate and were stripped down to not much at all.
We sat in the third row and could not always see the models entire body – so I got to practice drawing her face.
Dr Sketchy’s is in cities around the world – basically Burlesque dancer who poses for sketching, great DJ and great atmosphere.
I have only been to one before and now after nine years the Melbourne Dr sketchy’s is closing down and only have two more events.
The Model/dancer stays in a pose for one or two songs – so 3 to 6 mins. Quick thinking and sketching is required.
Here is my sketch of the crowd as we eagerly waited for curtain to open and the event to begin..
