Dr Sketchy’s Bristol – A Diva, A Drag Queen and Some Dangerpants

Hooray!  I had an opportunity to go out into the world and draw real life burlesque models last week at Dr Sketchy’s.  Behold – my favourite scribblings from each model:

The Diva – Ramona Rose

The Drag Queen – Dis Charge.  (It made my day when Dis Charge performed an Amanda Palmer song)

Life Drawing with Christmas Glitz

After a good while of not putting pen to paper with a life model in the room, I thought it would be a grand idea to flex the ol’ life drawing skills at a one off (or every few months anyway) burlesque life drawing evening at Bristol Folk House.  The models Delilah Di Sgrace and Ally Katte were in their Christmassy finery creating both  interesting and festive poses.  I did particularly like the one where Delilah Di Sgrace rolled up onto her shoulders, fair play to her holding that for 10 minutes!  The following are some of the images that came from my work of the night, more will be uploaded as I have opportunity to get them up.  Click an image for a closer look!
