Is there a Dr. Sketchy in the house? Let's make art happen!

I sit here, blogging, with a sore body. A good sore. The kind of sore that makes you feel like you've punched all your muscles in the face, and then lit a fire under their butts to run up a long, mean, never ending mountain of doom. Now that I think about it, this is how I felt every day during my time in Orlando FL!

This can only mean one thing... I've been performing, and lady-posing!

My home town, Victoria BC, now has a chapter of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, and last night was the 2nd installment of this art event that is spreading globally.

It's venues home was the wonderfully eclectic Superior Cafe, complete with deer heads on the walls, antlers hanging from the light fixtures, great food (hello sable fish tacos!), drinks and a full house to model for!

It was a NO PANTS PARTY for me, I feel best when there's cheekage. I posed, sang and played some accordion. I wore very high tranny/Betty Boop heels, on a platform stage, which made me feel like a giraffe that was afraid to look down. Oddly enough, I remember experiencing deja vu during one of my poses. I can't say I've stood on stage for a room of artists, while holding an umbrella, in opera gloves, with "Funkytown" playing before - but stranger things have happened in the world of performance!

Miss Lily Fawn had a turn at it as well, and we ended the night posing and performing together. I've never jammed with a saw player before, and I LOVED it! It was a pleasure to be contributing, and hopefully inspiring the minds of the artists that had filled the room.

I was raised on art. Piano lessons, dance classes, and always in a drawing, pottery, or a painting class outside of being in public school. Then there's the few credits shy of a History of Art degree, and a fashion design background. Alright, I guess it's safe to say my life has been about art and creativity, and so I adore illustration, sketches; what ever whimsical things come from the combination of a drawing tool and the human touch.

I've had portraits submitted and shared with me before, and am still beyond thrilled to have these. Check them out on my LOOK page (scroll down to view them). Now there's even more! Here is a sampling of what I received as donations of artwork at the end of the event last night (thank you everyone!):
















There are many more wonderful drawings to see. You can see all the sketches I collected in this Flickr set slideshow, enjoy!





If you were at last night's event and wish to share your artwork with me, please don't hesitate to get in touch! I'd love to see your work, send me an email.

A special thank you to Darren Stone, for the great photos, and a big THANK YOU to Kasia Waissmann-Coey, Lisa Boehme, and everyone at The Superior Cafe for having me be a part of this fantastic event!
