Dr. Sketchy’s February 2010 – Luscious Librarians

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.

Raven F’Moore makes the Dewey Decimal System sexy!

Aaron, a brave book lover from the audience, volunteers to be the Human Canvas for our first contest.

Winner by applause-o-meter…will it be the back?

or the front?

The talented winner gets a shot o’ booze!!

Next, the lovely Ginger N. Whiskey and Chou Chou La Rouge get studious!

“Draw the librarians as dominatrix punishing a patron for late fees” contest

The winner got a grab bag of goodies, including that timeless literary classic “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Chou Chou gets a keepsake from our own Tony Magpantay.

Next, Martini Bombshell is ready to catalogue and shelve!

Art Monkeys are asked to draw Martini Bombshell as an Elizabethan lady.

So long everyone! And remember…reading is fundamental!

Dr. Sketchy’s December 2009 – A Star Wars Holiday Special

A festive crowd of art monkeys joined us in December for our STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL! We had funny Star Wars songs, wookiee cookies, drinks, drawing, a cameo by Han Solo and TWO Princess Leias!

San Francisco/San Diego burlesque beauty Mynx D’Meanor started things off as “classic” Leia.

Cosplay cutie and San Diego Star Wars Society member Trista was up next as “slave Leia”, every 70s born boy’s wet dream!

Many worthy art monkey entered our “Draw Trista as a Wookiee” contest, hoping to win a coveted slave Leia Hallmark Keepsake ornament.

The grrrr-tastic winner…

Even galactic princesses need a ciggie break!

Entries in the “Santa Jabba” contest…

Han Solo joined his princess onstage for the last pose.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Festivus and all that good stuff! We’ll see you in 2010! Remember to upload scans of your sketches to our FLICKR pool!

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!
