Mixing Burlesque and Life drawing in a open happy non-judgey environment!
I can’t believe its been one whole year since I set up the North Wales branch of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. So much has happend this year, all brilliant, fun, time consuming, life affirming stuff.
I’ve invited back Burlesque Goddess Anna Fur Laxis – who will be performing and posing for your pencils at the Scala Cinema & Arts Centre in Prestatyn.
We’ve got a bit of twist on the night too… we have been applauding our pupils all year for their sketchy endeavours but this Friday we’re inviting YOU to come and pose in a sexy Zombie Pin-Up style comp! The sexiest most pin-upable Zombie will be crowned our 1st year winner, will be looking for great costumes, fab poses and pretty undead pouting.
If you haven’t checked out the Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, North Wales & Chester on Facebook yet – what are you thinking? Get yourselves over there!!
Heres some fab vintage spooky pictures to get everyone in the mood!

Our Dr. Sketchy’s Valentine night was the perfect loved up affair of glamour, sexy sketching and chocolate!
Suzie Sequin kicked off the night as Marilyn Monroe and her Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend act. She posed perfectly for our pencils giving us true Monroe style and sophistication…
Introducing Miss Pepper! Everyones favourite spice x
We had lots of fun drawing up our own Sketchy style Valentines cards as well as peeping through little heart shapes in which to draw…
A great range of people and some fantastic images from the night!

So pleased to announce that sister site Dr. Sketchy’s is now live and looking good.
I’ve been making some costumes, backdrops and staging as well as the website designing. Its been a brilliant time so far, so many more ideas to realise in the coming weeks!
I’m the sparkly brand new Branch Director and Host of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School in North Wales!!
Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School is the little New York art event that has become the world’s premier alt.drawing movement. Started in 2005 by artist Molly Crabapple, the concept is simple. Artist’s draw glamorous burlesque dancers, compete in contests, and win wacky prizes. From it’s humble Brooklyn beginnings, Dr. Sketchy’s now has over 100 branches around the globe, including Los Angeles, London, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Melbourne.
When many artists think “life drawing,” they think of sterile rooms, bad lighting, and bored, silent, models with nary a hint of personality. Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School North Wales is here to change all that.
As most of you are aware who visit this blog know I love to fuse art & fashion, creative costumes & comedy in my work and Dr. Sketchy’s will bring all this to life!
