Calling all cunning linguists,

The Christchurch chapter of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School present an evening of life drawing laced with literature. It's a night of bookish burlesque that's bound to get bawdy.

Brigitte de Brief stars as our prolific poet, producing prose after pose. She'll flash us some fiction and we'll inscribe her character in our sketchbooks.

Your hosts for the evening are well known authwhores Tawdry Trainwreck and Rose (by any other name would smell as sweet) Reckless.

Costumes are encouraged! Channel your favorite author, become an epic character, or perhaps dress like a book. We'll definitely check you out.

Bring along your own art supplies, including your sifty shades of grey.

Our sponsors are epic: Absolution Pierce and Tattoo, Madam Butterfly's Vintage Style Boutique, Gordon Harris Art Supplies and international sketchy sponsor Baby Tattoo Books.

R18. Strictly no entry prior to 6.30pm, First pose at 7.30pm. Be early for the best seats! Canterbury Bowling Club - 109 Salisbury Street, with entry via Gracefield Ave. Tickets $13 plus booking fee. Available online via Cosmic Ticketing and in-store at Cosmic in Cashel Mall.

We would like to advise there is no photography at this event. Document our models with drawing only.
