Meet Dr Sketchy...

So who is Dr Sketchy you may ask...it's not a who but a when & where.

Dr Sketchy is a once a month getting together of artists and models.

It is a place where artists, painters and photographers can capture the images of the posting model for the whole afternoon. This is a very unique concept that started in NYC and now happening in 40 major cities around the world. So if you happen to be one of the lucky one in those cities, be sure to check it out. Just bring your tools of trade and $10 cover charge plus tips for the lovely models. You're now ready to paint, draw, click, drink and laugh with other art lovers.

Here's some highlight from my Dr Sketchy experience:

Our lovely model, Kate.

The person responsible for bringing me to this event, Josh.

Kate had to hold these posts for up to 20 minutes at a time.

No one told me that our model would pick her favorite sketch in return for free cover on the next event.
I would have hid in the bathroom had I knew ahead of time, haha.

So, ya this is my first attempt at figure drawing, can you tell?!
Room for improvement for SURE, haha ^_^

Overall I had a blast. Looking forward to the next one already.
Be sure to look for your local Dr Sketchy events too.
Happy Sketching ^_^
