Dr Sketchy

They are idiots, but I came to believe they are mostly harmless. Dr Sketchy organizes life drawing sessions, and to ensure a pleasant ambiance, the sessions take place in a local pub. To compensate for the fact that nude posing is not legally allowed there, they invite extraordinary models 'from burlesque entertainers to the transgendered to the just plain fabulous!' I had to look up 'burlesque' in my dictionary, still don't get it, but let's summarize it as 'interesting'.

Tonight our model was Dew Lily from Boylesque, posing as Easter Bunny with eggs, rider with crop, and toy boy in corsetry. What I learned from the experience is that it is much easier for me to sketch in pen, while before I went back to school I felt so much more comfortable with pencil. I really love pencilwork, so I really need to spend more time sketching in pencil.

Here are some of the longer 10-15 minute poses.
