Fashion Week with a Twist: Live Drawing at Dr. Sketchy's



- written for client: LAist


Summer may be over but not all of the fun is. This weekend hosts a special edition in the art of the anti-artist: Dr. Sketchy’s. On Saturday, October 16th, from 2 to 5 p.m., event goers can experience more than just fashion for fashion week.

For those not familiar, Dr. Sketchy’s Los Angeles edition is a monthly event put on by Baby Tattoo that blends art, fashion, and oftentimes gratuitous nudity for local artists to practice life drawing. Models vary from event to event, as does the theme, and location. The event is usually tied to a nominal fee (as this Sunday’s edition will be) that allows the brooding artist an opportunity to ink its featured models in various poses for set intervals of time.

A diverse palate of individuals of all spectrums of artistic ability will be in attendance. Past sessions have had such internet fame as Mark Frauenfelder, editor in chief for Boing Boing. Will you spot a celebrity in this weekend’s crowd? There’s only one way to find out.
