I used to go and draw to all Dr.Sketchy events - you know, the so called "anti art school", drawing evenings usually with creative settings and in one way or another cabaret inspired models. Plus red wine and good music -  but during the past two years I have let my pencils rest. Haven't had the time really. In fact, Sketchy's in Helsinki was on hiatus for some time due to a lack of time from the organizers too, as it was run by the same team behind Helsinki Burlesque.

Last year however my fellow Itty-Bitty Tinker Bell and former Bitty Jackie O'Lantern took over as hostesses and organizers of the Helsinki events!

I missed out on the first evenings but modeled for the last one a couple of weeks ago. It was a very visual evening so I though I'd share some photos.

The theme was simply "art" and we posed as the primary colours. I'm so blue!

Art. Plus cabaret.

Arty girls; Fiona (wearing a self-made hat, of course) and Sktechy's  DJ Lola M.

Leila Halkeama, The Grand Artist-charcter talking about arty stuff for the crowd.


And here on paper (drawing by Janne Korsumäki).

Equals orange.

This makes purple.


Posing with results.

Nat : but sketchy's is a world wide phenomenon (started by artist Molly Crabapple in NY), google Dr.Sktechy and your town / some town near you and see if there perhaps might be someone doing it already :)

You guys look fantastic! I'm terrible at drawing, but I did model at one last year. It was a day of the dead theme and I had a pretty funny time running through the middle of town in full face paint and costume trying to get to the venue in time!
