Sketches from Dr. Sketchy’s DC


I’m currently doing some digital spring cleaning—sprucing up web pages, twitter accounts, and the like, and realized I hadn’t put up any sketches in bit. I’ve got a ton, so I’ll split them up into a few posts.

This first set is from a Dr. Sketchy’s DC session Alexis and I attended back on December 16th, 2012. The model was a burlesque performer named Cherie Sweetbottom who I hadn’t met before. This was the last Dr. Sketchy’s DC session at the Red Palace (a burlesque and rock bar) which was in the process of being shut down and dismantled around us while we drew. The director of the DC branch, Reverend Valentine, is a good friend of ours and was amazing as always, better than we would have been if we were given no warning our venue was shutting down. The bar’s employees, on the other hand, were obviously still in shock and were drinking their sorrows away as part of the grieving process. Thankfully the DC branch has since moved on to greener pastures.
