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

Craft and Textiles Show at the NEC

I received an email alerting me to a craft and textiles show in Birmingham; soon thereafter I realised I had to go sample its creative delights and under the guise of it being a birthday present for my mum, we left for Birmingham.  It was an inspiring place to be, there were lots of talented people exhibiting their work.  We found an exhibition space for Ollivier Henry and Jean-Noel Lavesvre, artists who have a passion for costume and theatre.  I was astounded by the delicate work they had achieved and took a photo of my favourite piece.  My artistic representation of said work can be seen below:
