Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School Sunday October 7 - Lucifer's Wrath with Vesper White

BY Melanie Knight | 01-Oct-2012
The world’s premier alternative drawing movement. Whether you’re an artstar or a scribbling newbie, Dr. Sketchys is the perfect place to get your fill of drawing fun. Come sketch glamorous underground performers, listen to good tunes, and drink great cocktails.

Throughout history artists have paid beautiful courtesans to sit for their most intimate works.

Lautrec, Klimt, Schiele, the list goes on. Now, you can join them.
Tired of bowls of fruit and lifeless life classes?
Fancy having a scribble but not sure where to start?
Need something fabulous for a Sunday afternoon?
Booze, Tunes, Performance, Sketching.
Part art, part cabaret, all fun.

Harxest Mag describes the event as “a room full of friendly people, an appreciation for art, beautiful models, unreal costumes and a truck load of fun times.”

This Sunday October 7th Dr Sketchy's is about to get hotter-than-hell....

Fire & Brimstone with Scream Queen, Vesper White

As a young pioneer in the creative arts, White is without question a Burlesque Force, laying siege to stages and galleries around Australia for the past five years. Best loved for her darkly alluring burlesque acts, Vesper has no fear in exploring the traditional, the horrifying and the bizarre. As one of Australia's favourite scream queens, VW is currently presenting Australia's premier dark variety & horror burlesque show, Gorlesque

.

With a hip-shake reminiscent of the Chicago State Fair exotics and an energy that has been likened to Bettie Page please join us on Sunday 7th October as Vesper invites us on a descent into the Netherworld as she conjures the hottest Lucifer that humanity has ever imagined!

Dr Sketchy's has become a boon to the art scene since its inception, promoting creativity and community in every city that runs one. Providing a space for artists to draw the flourishing alternative scenes that include phenomenal performers and other unique muses that might otherwise be inaccessible to the lone artist.

It brings together students, amateurs and professionals into one space to socialize and create together with the aid of tunes and booze!

Join us each month for ridiculous sketching pleasure, where you’ll also be treated to a performance by our models. Great tunes brought to you by resident Sketchy DJ, The Knave! Bringing a massive collection of boogie woogie, hip shakin’, room-a-quakein’ tunes! Expect an infectious blend of nostalgic flavour that will have you toe tappin while you sketch.. (The Knave is not liable should you lose your bananas)
