Dr. Sketchy’s May 2010 – Bibi Bordeaux

The inimitable BIBI BORDEAUX of Hell on Heels Burlesque Revue posed for our May session. Bibi graced our art monkeys with three different looks. She starts off as a scrumptious beer slinging German Fraulein.

Next, Bibi takes a stroll through the rain with her lovely umbrella.

For the next contest, art monkeys traded sketchpads with a neighbor halfway through.

The winning team shares a shot o’ booze!

The Ruby Room’s own Ryan serving them up like a champ…

For her final look, Bibi is your cocktail waitress.

Final contest! Draw Bibi in a martini glass.

Thanks a million beautiful Bibi!

Who’s that girl on the right in the photo below? It’s Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School San Diego’s new director, Nikki. She’ll be taking over from here on. Cheers to all of our art monkeys, the awesome staff of the Ruby Room, and our amazing models. It’s been a great ride. Happy sketching! -Lily and Matt

Shhh…It’s no problem following the rules when the librarians look like this! Hell on Heels Burlesque Revue helped us celebrate Library Lover’s Month. Our first smart and sexy librarian was the bewitching Raven F’Moore.

Dr. Sketchy’s November 2009 – ART STAR – David Russell Talbott

Hello lovely and cultured art monkeys! In November we hosted our first ART STAR session, focusing on the work of a local artist. We were honored to have David Russell Talbott showing his art and meeting our sketchers while the gorgeous Jolie Goodnight of Hell on Heels Burlesque struck poses inspired by his paintings (Check out the songs used at this session on our Playlists page). Here’s David, looking very arty…

David’s work is inspired by film stars of the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s and images of Americana and consumerism of the 50s. First, Jolie posed as the ultimate 50s icon Marilyn Monroe from David’s painting “Hollywood Eats It’s Own”.

We judge the pre-Thanksgiving “Draw Jolie with a turkey” contest

Jolie gives us a hand and judges the “Draw Jolie as Overdosed Marilyn” contest

Happy Birthday Mr. President!!

Next, Jolie posed as this sexy and dangerous dame from David’s painting “Wake Up and Die”.

Goodbye cruel world!

Thanks to all our beautiful art monkeys, Jolie Goodnight, the Ruby Room and David Russell Talbott! Below is a kick-ass drawing from David presented to your sketchy hosts Lily and Matt, plus some other fruits of this session. Don’t forget to upload scans of your sketches to our FLICKR group HERE!
