So this past Thursday I attended the self proclaimed Detroit version of "Dr. Sketchy: The Anti-Art School aka figure drawing at a seedy bar in a city bordering Detroit. It was great fun. The models were great and wore burlesque gear, drag, and the like and and posed in very unclassical poses. The Dj in the background was spinning trance/ambient music the whole time which furthered the surrealist feeling of the night. It was not a scene I was used to but I enjoyed meeting artists from all over Detroit and having the opportunity to draw models this different. Links you may be interested in:

I included a collage of pictures from that night and other sessions as well as 5-10 minute sketches I did. I later added color in Pshop that night 'cuz I was so pumped.
Any body interested in starting a Sarasota Dr. Sketchy???
