Dr. Sketchy's gets in a bind!

This month, Madison's own Shibari aficionado, Graydancer, put local bellydancer, Pheadra, through the ropes! Attendees got their kink on drawing all kinds of knotty poses! There were a few non-drawers in the crowd too who found this theme just too enticing to stay away! What can I say? Eventually, we'll cover anything thrown our way! Other than too much skin, that is. ;o)

Pheadra is the ultimate damsel in distress. And undress! Our ever talented artists "capture" the moments perfectly!

Graydancer seems pleased with such an elaborate tie, meanwhile Olive entertains us with stories of taudriness!

You're welcome to come and hang out with us too!

See you in May when delicate MICH takes us back to an era of flappers and feathers! Join us on Sunday, May 25th from 2-5PM at the High Noon Saloon, 701 East Washington Ave. (608-268-1122) $10 cover / 21 and UP. Olive Talique will add to the surrealness of it all, with her own flare for dadaism!

Mmmmhmmm! Last Sketchy's was saucy & lip-smacking good.

Model Moxie Rhodes knocked our socks off at Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School in March. And she even managed to look glamorous after being attacked killer tomatoes. Oh, that foxy Moxie!
For the Dr. Sketchy's blog - pretty saucy
Moxie impressed the crowd by fighting off a very obnoxious, three-boobed alien invader. The artists loved her cinematic poses and dramatic facial expressions. Alright, Dr. Sketchy, she's ready for her close-up...
For the Dr. Sketchy's blog - die alien scum!
Lots of great gifts from our local sponsors - Artist & Craftsman Supply, Mallatt Pharmacy & Costume, Lisa at Hair Forum, A Woman's Touch - were handed out. And our newest sponsor, Jim of Anxiety Gallery, took the stage and led a fun 'Planet of the Apes' contest with gobs of prizes for all.

Fun was had by all. Glenn, especially intrigued by the extra boob, managed to make friends with the alien simply by buying her a Guinness.
For the Dr. Sketchy's blog - cheers
Things get knotty at Dr. Sketchy's in April! We celebrate a full year of drinking, drawing, and debauchery by welcoming as models the beautiful Bellydancer PHAEDRA with Rope Artist & Kink Educator GRAYDANCER for a special Shibari Sketchy's! Surrender now and mark your calendar for Sunday, April 27th from 2-5pm at the High Noon.

It's a slumber party!

Shoot your poison arrow through my heart, Shane! Ever seen a cuter cupid? Of course not. Happy Valentine's, Sketchy-style.

Shane O'Neil as Cupid

After a raucous round of Twister and many, many debaucherous drawing contests, Shane took the stage as Venus to strike his final set of fabulous poses. A cascade of cotton-wad hair and fake foam boobs?! Oh yeah, darlin', THIS IS ART.

Feelin' hot, hot, HOT.

Miss Lychee and India Oleander swept us away to the tropics for an afternoon. Dr. Sketchy's inaugural '08 session at the High Noon in Madison, Wisconsin was HOT and sweaty.

Something fishy's going on here. One of many drawing contests, this one incorporating fish.

It was Shirts vs. Skirts for the dance contest. Holy hula! These ladies sure know how to shake it.

A tsunami of skillful sketches was produced by the January crowd. We welcomed lots of newbies for the start of the 2008. Even the fez-wearing attendee from Kenosha got sketched! And our squid friend simply took the opportuntity to get sh*tfaced.
It was a good time. Can you believe that those gorgeous models brought their own inflatable palm tree along to the gig?! Sweet.

Illustrator and freshly-outed foot fiend, G.P. Watson grabbed the mic this month at Sketchy's while regular emcee Olive Talique played artists' muse.


Naughty Miss Olive unwrapped her "gifts" for the audience. Holiday cheer and a whole lotta confetti filled the air. Many charming sketches resulted.


Chastity Dickums and Howlin' Hulla Baloo of Cherry Pop Burlesque stopped by to sing a few dirty XXXmas carols and strike a coupla poses.



Contest winners received gifts galore from our band of very Sketchy santas: Artist & Craftsman Supply, Mallatt Pharmacy & Costumes, Lisa at Hair Forum, Josh at Westfield Comics, and A Woman's Touch.

Olive was heard to exclaim, as she downed her last drink of the sesh, "Happy Anti-Art School to all, *hic* and to all a good Sketch!"


Is it getting HOT in here?! Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School is a havin' heat wave!

Spend an afternoon sipping pina coladas under the hot sun at High Noon Saloon and sketching our comely castaways Miss Lychee and India Oleander. Shipwrecked on a remote, equatorial isle in the Sketchy Sea, island life is starting to get pretty sweaty for these beauties.

Dr. Sketchy's went off with a bang

Girls with guns. Who can resist? We sure couldn't! Cosplay model Fawn began her session posing as Lara Croft from the videogame Tomb Raider. START GAME.

The geeks at Sketchy's were in heaven on this one... or Angel Sanctuary, to be more accurate. For the second series of poses Fawn was dressed as Alexiel from the manga and anime series created by Kaori Yuki.

The costuming details were astounding! There was even dirt on her wings. Sigh. To see more evidence of this delightful sight and the resulting sketches, check out our flickr pool.

Amid the flurry of costume changes and the onslaught of crazy contests, artists still found time to actually DRAW. (Wowie, good stuff, too!) Phew, all that PLUS an abundant flow of cocktails, as well as the usual requisite misbehavior and oddball shenanigans.

Amazing prizes (and LOTS of 'em) were provided this month by Artist & Craftsman Supply, Lisa at Hair Forum, A Woman's Touch, Mallatt Pharmacy & Costume, and Westfield Comics. Many thanks to all of our great local sponsors!

When Fawn arrived on stage as Rikku from Final Fantasy X our pencils were poised and READY.

Our Official Mistress of Photography, the mysterious phantomkitty was ready, too. Her keen eye captured every detail of the event. And this time, she got HER photo taken also. (The guy kissing her is her hubby, illustrious illustrator and Dr. Sketchy's-Madison co-founder, G.P. Watson.)

Tricks and treats at Dr. Sketchy's!

Boy, oh BOY! It was another swell month at Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School. Hauntingly gorgeous beefcake, "Boy" of Cherry Pop Burlesque, was our October model and served as quite a fine treat for our artists.

He certainly got us all eager beaver for HALLOWEENIE!

Boy began by demonstrating his athleticism in a Mexican wrestling costume and later brought out his giant banana to serve up some more delectable poses. Check out our flickr group, if you're curious to see more pix and drawings of said banana!

Olive demonstrated her muscular musical prowess by playing the theremin with her thighs. Beware: an exercise video may be in the works. [Cue scary music.]

Crazy contests
included "best depiction of 'death by banana'" and "ghastliest drawing of Boy wrestling a spider," among many others. Cool prizes were provided this month by Artist & Craftsman Supply, Lisa at Hair Forum, A Woman's Touch, and Mallatt Pharmacy & Costume.

Artists brought their sketches to the stage so that Boy could the award "Model's Choice" prize for the day. By the time the afternoon was over, everyone had had their fill Sketchy's-style tricks and treats.
