November 2011 Thanksgiving Extravaganza!

What can I say, except our November session was our best turn out yet!  I was so happy to see all the new faces and of course all our awesome loyal Art Monkey's at the Artifice!  Luckily I was able to snag a free table at work so we had more seating and table space (More tables will be purchased momentarily  ;)  ).

Our models for the night were the lovely ladies of the Grind House Burlesque posing with several different short and long poses.  All 4 ladies, Lacey Moon, Carmel Delight, Rosalita Nikita and Strawberry Grenades graced us with their Thanksgiving spirit and endurance as they were about to embark on our longest pose yet of 50 minutes.  Below are some photos from that night:

I also wanted to thank all the people who helped with our canned goods donation to Three Square, it was a great success!  Looking forward to our December Session.  Until next time.

Keep sketching!

October Session at The Artifice


Our new home at The Artifice started in October for our Halloween session.  A great friend, the Professional Bad Ass, Mr. Mat Black was our first model for that "Sketch-o-ween" night.  He started off by performing his awesome balloon swallowing "Shitzu" act that began our first half of the night.  It was his first time learning about and modeling for Dr. Sketchy's Las Vegas and was eager to get pose ideas from the artists.  After he was finished for the night, he confided he was thrilled to have had the opportunity and was most enthusiastic to do it again, I eagerly agreed.  I am hoping next time he'll do a little more of his act and perhaps take off a shirt.

Later in the night, the lovely Ivana Blaize took to the stage and performed her awesome "full moon" burlesque number.  I absolutely loved this performance when I saw it at the Burly-Q-review 2 months prior at Daddy Mac's and had to ask her to come on out for our Halloween session.  She also had great pose ideas for the night which had one Art Monkey literally leaping from his chair to get a closer look.  Inspiration is awesome.  Below are some photos of those poses and some great artwork.

I absolutely loved our first night in our new home, even came sporting my favorite fangs.  I want to thank all that came out for the special night especially to the Art Monkey's who I am getting to know each and every session (I'm hoping to do more than one per month so I can see your faces more often).  Also I wanted to thank both models, Mr. Mat Black The Professional Bad Ass where you can find him and his awesome performances at the Royal Resort in the Rock N Roll Comedy Show Friday's and Saturdays starting at 9pm, as well as The Dirty Joke Show at Hooters the rest of the week at 10pm.  Just tell him Dr. Sketchy's sent you. :)   Ivana Blaize can be seen around town in a variety of Burlesque shows.  (will get more info soon).

That is it for this post!  Next up will be November which had the best turn out I've seen yet!  And I can't believe it is already December.  :)  Until next time Art Monkey's, keep the inspiration flowing!

TWO Month's of Dr. Sketchy's Las Vegas

It has been two months since the last post and two sessions of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School Las Vegas has occurred with some awesome models and incredible artists.  Since that time we, here in Las Vegas started to search for a new venue and home.  With some help from a great Art Monkey and my love for the art district and First Friday Las Vegas (I've been searching in that area), I was able to find and book our new home, The Artifice! Starting in October we will be occupying a great part of the Artifice that has a nice large area and hopefully we will start growing our family of Art Monkey's to another level.

IN the meantime, let me share with you our past two sessions starting with August!

Our August session was an experiment with finding out which days of the week worked better.  It was also one week earlier due to my vacation in Europe.  I was able to get some feedback and insight that Thursdays may be a better option, it was very well received.  I still do hope to try and get more sessions in per month to bring in the people who may not be able to make it, but first thing is first, October at our new home.  :)

August's theme was "Under the Tuscan  Sun" and we had the privilege to feature Ms. Carolin Feigs who sang a song while her partner in crime Erin Marie Sullivan performed.  They decided to pose for us individually as well as together.

Below are a few photos and sketches from that night.

SEPTEMBER'S session was just this past week on Thursday, September 22, 2011.  Our model was Lacey Moon from the Grindhouse Burlesque Troop.  A new addition to Las Vegas Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School she was very enthusiastic to get started.  Her troop came out to support her so we had a very welcome cheering crowd.  I even got to use my heart shaped riding crop on one of them (The flyer does state "Debauchery" after all). 

 Below are some of the photos from that night.
