Back in April I was fortunate enough to be able to travel to Baltimore for a session of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School that was held at The Wind-Up Space. The model for that evening was a sideshow performer named Reggie Bügmüncher who’s known in certain circles for her ability to eat live worms on stage, walk on glass, and lie on a bed of nails (among her oeuvre of tricks).

Thanks to Facebook I now know that Reggie’s name is currently in the news in connection with that British Airways plane that literally caught on fire at a Las Vegas airport. She wasn’t on that flight. She just happened to be at that same airport waiting for her own flight when she looked out the window and saw the plane on fire. She immediately took a photo of that burning plane and posted it on Instagram. Within minutes she was inundated with requests for information on that story as it became breaking news and she began to talk with reporters about what she saw. They noted her name and, well, she is now part of that news story. Just doing a Google search on her name results in all kinds of articles about her and that plane on fire.

Here are just a few of the drawings I did of Reggie Bügmüncher that night at Dr. Sketchy’s back in April.
