More spooktacular art

Jennifer Rose Evans sent this collage of sketches from our session with Lisa on Thursday (click it to enlarge and get a better look).Not only was it her first Sketchy, she says it was her first time working from a formal live model! You can see more of her work on her Deviant Art site.

UPDATE: Just got these great studies from DS repeat customer Kevin, too.

DS October: Lisa and the Spiders from Mars

It was a full house at Blick's in Dearborn last night, listening to creepy stories and silly songs on the Halloween satellite radio and sketching Lisa as she lounged on her skull throne, battled giant arachnids and ate treats. Many thanks as always to everyone who came out, and special thanks to Paul and the staff at Blick for having us and supplying the swell raffle prizes! Here's some art, two by me and three more by regular contributer John. Send yours!

Also, as I mentioned last night, Hatch, the art collective based in Hamtramck, is trying to drum up new members. We're in the process of renovating the old police station in town to convert it to an arts center with gallery, studio and retail space. Find out more about Hatch at our website and consider joining up!



Just a reminder to everyone to come by Blick Art Materials on Michigan Ave. in Dearborn at 6pm Thursday October 29 for Dr. Sketchy's Halloween session! Check the previous blog post for more details and to get a glimpse of drawings of our lovely model Lisa.

See you there!


Next Dr. Sketchy: THURS. OCT. 29 6-9PM!

Hey all! So here it comes, the Halloween '09 Dr. Sketchy session, this time back at Blick Art Materials in Dearborn! Modeling this time will be Lisa, who heroically came to pose at the mini-Sketchy held at the People's Art Festival this past August. (Drawings of her here by friend-of-Sketchy Jim Anderson.) Lisa mentioned a "dead doll" costume she's been working on, so expect some seasonal creepiness! (And plenty of treats, too)

So mark your calendars - Thursday, October 29, from 6-9pm - and I'll give you more details as I nail them down.


More Hayley Jane from Sept. Dr. Sketchy

Just got back from a week's vacation, but here's some more excellent art from last month's session - pen sketches by Ray Stanczak and color collages by Doug Blanchard. Plans are afoot for October, so stay tuned.
