We got invited back to another evening of dancing and drawing at Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School! Here’s a little review of what this event is all about, lifted from their official website:
Every month, over 3,500 artists gather in nearly a hundred cities (including New York, Hollywood, Sao Paolo, London, Rome, Paris, Tokyo, and Melbourne) to sketch glamourous, subcultural models and compete in drawing contests in an atmosphere of artistic mayhem at Dr. Sketchy’s, the world’s premier alternative drawing movement. Started by Molly Crabapple, an artist and former model, as an alternative to the dull drawing classes she had posed for, Dr. Sketchy’s has exploded into an international phenomenon. This “anti-art school” has been featured in Time Out NY, LA Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, Time Out London, The Village Voice and The Onion.
We were thrilled to come back and do another country theme for these awesomely receptive artists. Again, it proved to be an evening of artists supporting other artists, no matter what the medium. Even Tony Botello, writer of Kansas City’s most influential independent blog: Tony’s Kansas City, popped by and wrote a little something about the evening, the link to which I will not be sharing because Tony, bless his heart, isn’t a professional photographer, and his photos made me look a little hefty. Fallon even looked like she had some meat on her bones, so I know it wasn’t just me. But it was a pleasure meeting him, and I was tickled pink when he was visibly pleased when I told him I read his blog! He actually blushed!
Below are a few photos and artist sketches from the event, and a slideshow of course, because if we don’t have a slideshow with a musical background it’s like it never happened. 🙂
Love and chaps,
