I am back in Australia but without internet access. Will resume bloggong as soon as possible.
Every second Tuesday at the Arthouse Hotel, a group of Burlesque, Vaudeville, Punk & Rockabilly performers and models will make themselves available for anyone who wants to sketch them. There are also drinks, competitions and great music. www.drsketchy.com.au
The ArtHouse Hotel – Attic Bar
275 Pitt Street
Dr Sketchy’s Sydney was started in April 2007 by Jac Bowie & Jon Wright (Jac Bowie PR & Events). They are Australia’s leading Burlesque, Vaudeville & Vintage Agency.
Dr Sketchy’s takes place every 2nd Tuesday at The ArtHouse Hotel, at 275 Pitt Street Sydney and turns a mere drawing class into a cabaret extravaganza. Artists are treated to burlesque dancers, carnies, and fetish models posing in elaborate costumes. Artists compete for prizes, along with great tunes, sweet treats, a shimmy here and there between poses and a tell all photo and sketch blog updated after each session.
While Irina was in NYC doing fancy schmancy things for Columbia Journalism School, she called her long-time Flickr friend and graffiti artist Royce Bannon to catch up. Irina met Royce when he was the photo editor of The Source hip hop magazine — he sent her a hand-painted tshirt that she wore an early episode of GETV. Irina and Royce discuss how he got into what he’s into. Royce Bannon aka R. Bizzle is a member of New York’s infamous Endless Love Crew and his work will be on display on the west coast at LA’s ThinkSpace Gallery from Jan. 9 - Feb 6, 2009 in a show called “From the Streets of Brooklyn.” (GETV would like to thank Matt Matossian of For Your Imagination Studios in NY who shot this episode for us. He is also the world-famous Shirtless Apprentice)
