Dr Sketchy’s Life Drawing with Ruby Slippers

Dr Sketchy’s life drawing has been my “no stress art time” for so many years. The chaotic joyful atmosphere makes it impossible to take “art-ing” too seriously. I really enjoy the chance to experiment and rapidly capture something of these spectacular performers.
Thank you Mel for this wonderful experience 💖 And thank you to the beautiful rainbow tornado Ruby Slippers! 🌈


Dr. Sketchy’s Life Drawing with Tease Rex and Miss Maple Rose

From no life drawing to two sessions back to back! Sketching Tease Rex at Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne was an absolute blast! Perhaps the first ever burlesque dancer? The evening than heated up with the lovely and crimson Miss Maple Rose.


Covert Characters Life Drawing – From Dusk till Dawn Session

First life drawing session for 2018! Sketching the beautiful Ferri and Wanda the snake in From Dusk till Dawn Santanico Pandemonium tribute! Very rapid sketches because Wanda kept shifting positions. But a great challenge to shake off the rust.


The SuperVixens at Dr. Sketchy’s

Dancing! Drawing! Disco! Dr. Sketchy’s Life drawing with The SuperVixens! What a way to end the year! Thank you Mel for an amazing year of Dr. Sketchys <3

Very rapid sketches trying to capture as much of these gorgeous groovy gals as I could.

Merry Christmas to all my Dr. Sketchy’s art family and I can’t wait to see you all next year!


Beast Burlesque at Dr Sketchy’s

Drawings from last month’s session of Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne featuring the beautiful  Bella Dejac and Kerry Whittle  from Beast Burlesque.

They enchanted us with their grace and power, spinning dark and poignant fairytales.


KillJoy the Show Life Drawing

I just realised that I forgot to post my favourite drawing from the last Dr Sketchy’s session! I was really happy with this one, I can’t believe I left it out! Thank you again Killjoy the Show for an amazing night.

I am looking forward to the next session. I’m starting to miss my more regular classes. It will be great to have a night of fun art again soon.


Dr Sketchy’s Life Drawing with Killjoy the Show

At the last Dr Sketchy’s life drawing session we had the pleasure of having 3 amazing performers from Killjoy the Show as our models. Not only that but they had their band live on stage with them to perform! Their song with accompanying  acrobatics/dance was incredible.

I’m still enjoying my watercolor pencil sketch experiments for the longer poses but I am keeping with my trusty black colored pencil for all the quick drawings. Sadly I wasn’t fast enough to capture much of the dazzling piñata-like beauty hanging from her aerial silks.


Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands Life Drawing Session

A week ago to I taught my last Covert Characters Life Drawing class for the year and I couldn’t have asked for a better night! Friends and familiar faces were there and  Silhouettê d’Amour was fantastic as Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands.

I really enjoyed experimenting with watercolor pencil and water brush at the last life drawing class I attended so I thought I would try some more. I like how quickly I can brush in some shading and darken shadows by drawing over the top.

 


Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Life Drawing

Drawing from our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party life drawing session at the start of the month. Hamish brings so much energy and character into his posses.

Reminder: This Wed August 30th will be the last class I will be teaching for the year! We have the lovely  Silhouettê d’Amour,  model and amazing cosplayer,  posing as Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands! So join us for an evening of art and fun!

 


Dr Sketchy’s Life Drawing with Agent Cleave and Dandrogyny!

Every Dr Sketchy’s event is wonderful and totally unlike any other drawing class. I tried to explain it to my friends as “Burlesque-like Performance Art Event with Audience Participation and Some Drawing”! Its more important that everyone is having a good time experiencing art and making art than studying form and improving technique.

The last session was truly incredible and fun in the unique way only Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne art parties can be! Thank you Mel, Agent Cleave and Dandrogyny for an amazing night  🙂
