Dr. Sketchy's is what happens when cabaret meets art school. Every other week, artists get to draw glamorous burlesque, fetish and circus models. In between, they compete in contests, watch skits, and win booze and prizes.

Dr. Sketchy's started in 2005 in Brooklyn, and now takes place in nearly 50 cities around the world. It's spawned a book, a calendar, a gallery show, a national tour, a series of podcasts, and a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

So grab your pencils and draw our beauties. Non -artists welcome.

Well, when I started Dr. Sketchy's, I advertized it on alot of illustrators communities. People started writing to me to bemoan the fact that there was nothing like that in Salt Lake City or Viriginia or wherever they lived. So, I wrote a tutorial on how to start your own. Within a few months, I had five branches. I sat down with a lawyer, wrote a licensing agreement that spells out their obligations and what they have to do.

Fast forward a few months. I get a book deal for Dr. Sketchy's. Me and my friend John write a book on how to start your own branch (with lots of paper dolls and drinking games thrown in). It starts spreading like wildfire. Every week now I get about five requests to start branches. I don't run them myself, but I work closely with the folks who do, and sometimes I work on projects with them. For instance, me and the Edinburgh branch brought Dr. Sketchy's to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (21 sessions in one month), and me and the San Diego branch did a big afterparty for Comic-Con together.

Here's a fairly accurate map of all the branches (I know we left a few out)

and burlesque muse Amber Ray

bodypaint by Dani of http://www.thebodyofart.com

For the last three years, Dr. Sketchy's has been the ultimate in alternative
life-drawing. The event combines cabaret and art school, and with branches from
Paris to Tokyo, Dr. Sketchy's has become the largest chain of drawing classes in
the world. Now, Sketchy's is joining forces with America's most notorious
underground artists.

At a Dr. Sketchy's class, artists draw glamorous, scantily constumed
underground performers, compete in contests, and win booze and prizes. Sessions
are hosted by artist Molly Crabapple.

On February 14th, we're launching our Dr. Sketchy's ArtStar series. Dr.
Sketchy's will treat attendees to sessions styled after some of the county's
most talented and infamous underground artists. Famed street artist Ron English
(whose work has been featured in Morgan Spurlock's Supersize Me, and is shown
from Hollywood to Hong Kong) will be our first guest artist.

Sketchers will be treated to a trip inside Ron English's imagination. English
is known for his surreal, scathing dissection of advertising culture. Burlesque
queen Amber Ray will pose as Cathy Cowgirl, English's bovine pinup girl, in a
set styled after his pop surrealist paintings. The music is curated by English,
and he will be appearing in person to sign copies of his books.
