Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School Burlesque Life-Drawing was very risqué tonight
Here is the poster and description for the July 7, 2014 life-drawing session from the Toronto Branch website:
Watch out - Kensie heard Toronto Batman has been a very bad bat. She just may have to punish him.
Special Emcee: Gracie Klutz!!

Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School Burlesque life-drawing last night was based on comic book figures but truly seemed more BDSM. They were a kinky Batman and Catwoman, let's say. Batman and his masked Madame of Meows posed with fun and hilarity for us. They are actually married and were a great couple to draw! Despite the short poses, mostly 5 min, some 10min, one 15min, and the complexity of two figures interlacing, there were some beautiful drawings in the room. Such talented artists all over!
Here are mine. They're all done on 18" x 24" 80lb Strathmore archival drawing paper with graphite, the regular kind and the water-soluble kind. I am a little uncomfortable posting these, they are so risqué, but I do keep a record of my drawings and paintings on this blog, so chalk it up and on with the show.
The two below are the full drawing that was cropped in #4, and #6 with a solarizing filter (I like this effect on that drawing).
