Small turn-out this month (probably due to my last-minute planning), but much enthusiasm from those who did come to Skipper's in Hamtramck for the April Dr. Sketchy with Antha. Skipper's accommodated us nicely and Antha was a champ of course, despite an allergy attack! Here's a sample of the results, from Kateri, Jennifer and John, with photos by Agnes.
(And sorry it's taken so long to post these. Work kinda ate my brain this week, as you might imagine when you see how large the Metro Times Best of Detroit issue is.)
Sorry this is going out so last minute but everything finally came together yesterday, so here it is:
The Dr. Sketchy Tax Relief Session*
THIS THURSDAY, April 15 from 7-10pm at a new location:
9735 Conant Street, Hamtramck, at the corner of Evaline: (313) 974-6883
Skipper is new to Hamtramck but he's long been involved with the Detroit-area arts community - his previous bar was a big hangout for local artists - so he's glad to host us for the night! The beer selection is great there, as is the jukebox, and there's a nice big space in the back for posing and sketching. (*Admission is still $5 - tax-free!)
Our model for the night is Antha, returning after nearly a year to the Dr. Sketchy stage!
So I hope to see you all there this Thursday, and spread the word!
PS: We'll be back at the Scarab Club in Detroit on Thursday, May 20, hopefully in time for some nice weather and lounging in their garden area.
Plans are afoot for upcoming Sketchy sessions in April (Hamtramck) and May (the Scarab Club in Detroit), but until I get the dates and models firmed up, here's a few more drawings of Red Hot Annie from March by Sketchy newcomer Anne Fracassa.
And there's even more great stuff over at Jim Anderson's blog.
