 Dr Sketchys is the best sketching fun in Augusta. Fast sketching. 2-20 minute poses. Off the wall different models who are actually burlesque, circus performers or even strippers.  You never know what their day job is but you can bet they are not waiting tables at Waffle House tables at nights.  Contests for tickets to Chat Noir performances and sometimes a drink or two. We find that a martini or a bourbon and coke loosens up the drawing fun!

5 minute pose 

Cosmo was a great model. Rock steady. Interesting poses.  Penetrating eyes.

This is a presketch. He was trying out poses and Ann Delore and I decided to limber up our pens and chalk. Most of these were done with the Pentel brush pen, Pentel color brush pens, Tombow markers and some Wink of Stella pens(glitter pens).

Another five minute sketch. Oops I cut off his legs. HOW did I manage to get all of him in the one minute drawing previous to this and cut his legs off in the five minute one?!

 

Triple Hats

My favorite so I posted it again. He could stare holes they you with his eyes.

Notice anything funny about this one?! His legs are too short I think. I need to measure to see if he fits within 7.5 heads length. I think he’s 6.5 heads. Otherwise I love this sketch. 

Ann and I started laughing at some point because we never could quite get all of him on the page. Maybe it was that Appltini?!

More Dr Sketchys tomorrow or maybe that great window of easter hats I sketches downtown today. Unbelievable hats. You will swoon.  NOT!!
