Scenes from a Dive Bar

Here are a few shots from Monday’s Dr Sketchy’s at the Clermont. As always, the artists did great work, the model was gorgeous and much fun was had by all!

we had a contest to draw on some tiny plastic easter eggs. I expected hilarity, but once again, talent won out.

Next session is April 9th, back at the Clermont Lounge. We’ve got two models for next month, so practice drawing with both hands!

whirlwind weekend!

Liz and I set up Saturday and Sunday at Wedding Day Hooray, a wedding-themed show put on by the ladies behind the Indie Craft Experience. It was a long weekend, but fun. The other vendors were amazing, AND we got free cupcakes.
Here is a shot of our booth, courtesy the lovely ladies at Paper Acorn:

Saturday night was Dr Sketchy’s at Sutra, a benefit for the Fringe Festival Atlanta. Since it was a benefit and we couldn’t pay a model, Lisa and I took turns posing with some volunteers from the audience. Here I am pretending to be the moon.

Then Nibbler went missing for a day, but we found her in a thicket, hiding out. She has some strange bite on her head (spider?) that had gotten all infected and made her feel lousy. Now she’s on fluids and antibiotics and should be all good in a few days.

Wayne’s team won the 24 Hours of LeMons last weekend, which is awesome, but he came home with a nasty cold and I think he’s given it to me. Time to mainline orange juice and garlic…

The Fringe Festival is coming to Atlanta and Dr Sketchy’s will be there!

Almost 4 years to the day, Dr Sketchy’s Atlanta returns to it’s original location at Sutra Lounge for drinking, drawing and debauchery, Fringe Festival style. Join us for a celebration above and beyond your wildest expectations. Drawing will be in the glass room, with many other delicious distractions for you to partake in!
