Something Completely Different: Dallas Dr. Sketchy


I just happened to hear about an event today that sounds cool: a Dallas Dr. Sketchy event perfect for an additional bit of Halloween weekend creativity (for adult artists). I've heard alot about these rather fun figure drawing sessions (NYC, Seattle, Vancouver, Austin), but haven't had the opportunity to attend one until now. It looks like there's a session this weekend at City Tavern on November 2nd:

Dallas Dr. Sketchy, November Session: Ghouls n Girls
Sunday, Nov 2 4:00p
at City Tavern, Dallas, TX
Price: $10 - $15

Join us for a special post-Halloween Dr. Sketchy. Ghouls and Girls, Drawing and Prizes

"Dr. Sketchy's is what happens when Cabaret meets Art School" A creation of Miss Molly Crabapple in NYC that has spread across the globe, finally Dallas has Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School.
Ok so what's this all about anyway?
Well, just show up at one of our monthly sessions with your paper, easel or drawing board or whatever and any dry medium of your choice (dry mediums are pencil--charcoal--pastels--watercolors are ok too etc.)
NOW this is where it gets good! We supply the hottest most fabulous outrageously delicious burlesque superstars, roller derby babes, amazing contortionists, and other assorted local interesting muses for your drawing delight. As if the eye candy and sketching madness wasn't enough, be prepared for a heavy dose of fun.
Games and contests? Yes, there will be some.
Prizes? Of course, many.
Drinking and debauchery? You bet your sweet little ass.
So stay tuned to our calendar for our monthly sessions!

In case you're not already familiar with the Dr. Sketchy events for artists, check out the links for more info. It sounds like these will be running monthly -- YAY!! Maybe consider the Dallas sketchgroup meeting Sunday mornings as the warm-up. ;)

So, what's happened to the sketch group? The last couple of weeks nobody has shown up. Did it move from the Half Price Books store or something? Change times? Can someone please post an update on the group?
