1st entry for Aug. 7, 2015

It was Rock & Roll Circus night at the Dr. Sketchy's session at Round Venue on the Friday night. Originating in New York, Dr Sketchy's `Ant-Art School' is a franchise of drawing sessions that bring burlesque and performance art people to pose, with drinks, prizes and soundtracks thrown into the mix.
The sessions bring out a lot of cartoonists, animators and illustrators. The costumes add an extra level of challenge to the drawing, though as always, a good understanding of body shapes really helps the process of drawing people in costume.
 Carmen La Bomba was working that night, doing a tribute to Gene Simmons and Slash. Above is a 10-minute study, and below are a series of 1-minute, 2-minute and 3-minute studies.

These are all done wit pitt pen on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper.
