I attended my first Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School event of 2017 in Baltimore. I walked around the Station North Arts District a bit before I headed to The Wind-Up Space.

There’s a one-time movie theater known as The Centre, which is located just a few doors down from The Wind-Up Space whose art deco architecture is eye-catching. Recently that old theater has been renovated into an arts center. The Center really looks nice when it’s lit up at night.

I walked into The Wind-Up Space where I noticed that, even though the Christmas holiday season ended a few days ago, that place still had a Christmas tree up. I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures of that tree because it’s mostly loaded with Krampus ornaments (with the exception of a VHS version of Willie Wonka & The Chocolate Factory that was hung on the tree).

The model for this event was a burlesque performer named KiKi Allure and some of the drawings I did in this post are definitely NSFW.

I took part in two of the contests that were held that evening. One of them was where we had to come up with some graffiti. I couldn’t resist invoking that infamous recording of Donald Trump where he bragged about how he grabs women by the pussy. (And that’s not to mention that he was still elected President of the United States despite all that.) By the way that phone number I wrote is real—it’s for the White House switchboard. That drawing was among the finalists but I didn’t win.

The other contest I took part in was where we had to somehow incorporate both Elvis Presley and David Bowie because their birthdays are in January. (Of course this month is the one-year anniversary of David Bowie’s death and it was also the same day that I went to another Baltimore Dr. Sketchy’s event.) I decided to have the two men do a dance-off in a battle for KiKi Allure. I modeled Elvis after his role in the film Jailhouse Rock while I modeled Bowie after his androgynous glamour rock phase back in the early 1970’s. This drawing also made the finals but I didn’t win.

I did one last drawing of KiKi Allure before the event ended and I headed home.

As the Sagittarius Dolly blog inches closer to its fifth anniversary on January 6, 2015, I thought I’d provide a look back at some of my creations that I’ve previously featured in this blog.

Five months later and I’m finally getting around to uploading some drawings I did at the Dr. Sketchy’s Event at The Wind-Up Space in Baltimore last November. What took me so long was that my old laptop’s hard drive started to fail at the same time as this event followed by having my new laptop of my dreams being on backorder for a few weeks followed by the Christmas holidays followed by reinstalling my files and apps followed by simultaneously preparing for the recent Greenbelt Mini-Maker Faire/my mother’s hospitalization/the deaths of two friends/the recent stroke of my minister.

In other words, I had a lot of other stuff going on.

I’m finally getting around to scanning some sketches I made over the last few months including the ones in this entry.

Last November I attended a session of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School at The Wind-Up Space in Baltimore, Maryland. A burlesque performer named KiKi Allure was the model for this evening. Here are the sketches I did, some of which are NSFW.

I took part in one of the contests where we had to somehow incorporate the scandal where football player Richie Incognito was accused of bullying fellow teammate Jonathan Martin (which was the big media story at the time). The below drawing didn’t make the finals.

The other contest I took part in was inspired by the fact that it was the birthday of Coraline author Neil Gaiman so I incorporated Coraline into the next drawing. My drawing didn’t make the finals.

I did one last drawing of the evening before I left for home.

UPDATE (October 20, 2014): Here’s the official video from this event.

This past weekend I devoted myself to being creative and having fun because my birthday was on December 15. For my birthday itself I started my day by heading over to the Riverdale Holiday Market, which I already wrote about in a previous entry. After I left that event, I headed north to Baltimore where I attended another session of the Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School at The Wind-Up Space.When I first arrived I decided to make a trip to the women’s bathroom. I happened to be using the wheelchair accessible stall when I saw this graffiti on the wall. (That was my only photograph I took inside The Wind-Up Space because photography is generally prohibited at a Dr. Sketchy’s event.)

Burlesque performer KiKi Allure was the model for this session and she wore some Christmas holiday-themed attire during that session. Some of the drawings I did are definitely NSFW.

There were two contests but I didn’t take part in either of them. The first one was themed around the film Fight Club, which I had never seen. As for the second contest, I had gone to the bathroom during one of the model breaks but I timed my visit badly because when I got back the model was already on stage. The second contest was announced during my time in the bathroom, which I didn’t know until the end of that drawing session. (That contest was a challenge to draw a moon theme.) I just stuck to drawing and I had a good time.

For the past few months The Wind-Up Space had been experimenting with holding Dr. Sketchy’s sessions on a Saturday as well as on a Monday night. Apparently attendance was sparse because the session I attended would be the last Saturday afternoon session. I’ll admit that I didn’t attend too many of the Saturday Dr. Sketchy sessions because I either forgot about that session or I had a scheduling conflict. Ironically it was a packed house on that final Saturday Dr. Sketchy’s session. Oh well. At least I got a chance to go to one on my birthday.

As I left The Wind-Up Space after the Dr. Sketchy’s event ended, I found a gang of Santas who were on their way to Liam Flynn’s Ale House, which is located next door to The Wind-Up Space.

After I went to Baltimore I decided to treat myself to a special birthday dinner at the Teppanyaki Supreme Buffet in Laurel. It’s an Asian seafood all-you-can-eat buffet and the food was pretty good. You pay a single price at the front door and you’re only allotted two hours to eat as much as you want. I didn’t use up my entire two-hour limit because I was full after the third trip to the buffet. It was all good on my birthday.

UPDATE (October 20, 2014): Here’s the official video from that event including some of my work.
