Dr. Sketchy’s Life Drawing with Chase Paradise

A fiery and funny night at Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Melbourne last week with Chase Paradise #strippacomic!
I am having a great time loosening up and scribbling with my watercolor pencils 


Superman Sketch – 80th Anniversary

A sketch to celebrate Superman’s 80th anniversary issue #1000 which I never posted. Jubilant and full of justice.


Free Comic Book Day 2018

A few of the 20+ sketches I did as part of Free Comic Book Day 2018 last weekend. Thank you Classic Comics and All Star Comics Melbourne for having me! And thank you to all the lovely people that came by and requested something. I had a great day drawing for you! 


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.


Sniper Wolf Metal Gear Solid

Sniper Wolf of Metal Gear Solid ink drawing done as a gift.

I know very little about these games except for one experience years ago of a cut scene so long we had time to make lunch, eat lunch and clean up before it finished.

I’m really happy with this drawing. Sometimes just a few lines suggesting shapes rather than illustrating lots of details really works.

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.
