Dr Sketchy has come to Byron Bay. It was started by a New York stripper, and artist, a few years ago who was tired of straight academic drawing classes. The idea was to create drawing sessions around the theme of Burlesque; slow strips and wild lingerie poses. Needless to say, I was looking forward to it. The event itself was in fact rather tame and somewhat boring. It was immediately apparent that it was more entertainment than serious drawing from a model, clad, any which way. (peu import) I don't know if its because it has obviously been franchised out and hence watered down from the original but it was not a success in my eyes. However, I did manage to get a few drawings out of it.
