Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School: GORE


WARNING: This month's session is NOT for the faint of heart.

The Sketchy Girls of Christchurch are all set to get their gore on. Tawdry Trainwreck will embrace disgusting, horrid themes and then smother them with blood, guts, and fishnets. Gracie Hart will be terrorised and torn apart in Tawdry's attempts to create the perfect woman for you to draw.

To further titillate your sick little minds, there will be a special performance by skindependent. Hooks will be sharp, flesh will be quivering, spines will be tingling.

This is a life drawing class like no other. Drinking! Drawing! Debauchery! Meat! Flesh! Blood! Boobs!

It's a wonder that our sponsors let us get away with this depravity. So be sure to show your support to Madam Butterfly’s Vintage Style Boutique, Absolution and The Flying Burrito Brothers.

We would like to advise there is no photography at this event. BYO drawing materials, and some red ink, to portray our models and all that blood.

Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School: GORE.

Thursday 28 October, 2010 at Goodbye Blue Monday.

Doors 6.30pm. First pose 7.30pm.

Tickets $10 plus booking fee.

Pre-sales available from Thursday 21 October from Cosmic Corner High Street or online via Cosmic Ticketing.

IV: Bacchanalian Night of Revelry

After a month of disaster, ruin and hundreds (no, really hundreds!) of aftershocks we were all ready for some uplifting sketchy revelry. The luscious demigoddess Lucille L'amour played muse for our hedonistic art monkeys in attendance.

The wine was flowing (as well as the Bodgie Beer for those more hops-inclined) to encourage indulgent misbehavior and toga staining.

Ms. Rosie Reckless cavorts with a myseterious trader from The East, what wonders does she bring to the table?

MC Hells Belle channelled the gorgon medusa and transfixed the audience with her many snakey gazes.

The devine Lucille L'amour

Debauched noblewoman, entrancing vision and feast for our art monkeys eyes... Lucille L'amour performs her routine to Grecian lounge music.

Our sketchers were adorned with vine wreaths and bedazzling jewels. They were affectionately harassed by the mischievous satyr in attendance - Billy Goat Elliot. He spent the night capering about Goodbye Blue Monday, tooting on pan-pipes and spreading merriment.

Lucille managed to escape without getting her leg humped by that rascally Billy. No mean feat!

Headmistress Tawdry Trainwreck shocked us all by keeping most of her body clad this eve. She'll be sure to make up for that at next month's Dr. Sketchy's… because our next event will be all about the GORE.

We are very happy to announce that all of our sponsors survived le shakes and lent their support, as ever, to our night of sordid art practice. Many thanks to the Flying Burrito Brothers, Absolution Tattoo and Body Piercing and Madame Butterfly's Vintage Style Boutique - we adore you! Another big thanks to our wonderful art monkeys for turning up - more in togas on a Thursday night in Crimeschurch than one would expect - and making this event brilliant.

For a more in depth catalogue of our Greco-Roman escapades, find us on the Dr hub site or on facebook under Dr Sketchy's Christchurch. Until next time!
