Dr Sketchy hits the high seas

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Arrrrrrr, it was all aboard for June’s Dr Sketchy Manchester and a Pirates of the Northern Quarter special.

Dr Sketchy's Manchester

Doing the posing honours for us was Suzie Sequin who performer her saucy sailorette turned playful pirate routine. And accompanying her was the scurvy ridden sailor Jim Sparrow, Jack Sparrow’s brother from up north! Jim was a little worse for wear which made it tough for the winner of one of the sketching competitions who was challenged to draw a tattoo on our old sea dog. Jim ended up with a rather brilliant but rather confused looking sheep on his arm. The piratey pair took part in a duel unfortunately Jim brought a pirate’s cutlass to a gun fight but luckily the two made it up at the end.

Our very own fiesty foxes the Chantilly Belles will be making us re-think whether we should join the Cheshire set after all.

The Manchester pair will be performing at this month’s sketchy session, their original and very funny fox hunt routine.

The Chantilly Belles are a heady mix of old school music hall and classic Hollywood movies.

Think comedy, meets sultry panto, meets a sexy Morcombe and Wise, throw in a dash of grown up cartoon narratives… and you wont go far wrong!

As well as having this delectable pair helping us get our monthly dose of sketchercise we’ll have all the usual games, tunes and fab prizes.

Don’t forget your sketchpad, pens and pencils, and money for a lovely cup of tea, ahem.
Doors open at 7pm, drawing starts at 7.30pm.

Dr. Sketchys – Girls, guns and rock n roll

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

An evening of guns, girls and rock n roll awaited sketchers at this month’s Dr Sketchy Manchester. The RockIt belly dancing girls were our hard rocking models and boy did they bring it. The belly dancing troupe were perfect for Dr Sketchy as they have taken traditional belly dance and turned it on its head.

Dr Sketchy’s Valentine – Emerald Ace

Monday, March 21st, 2011

Our session with naughty Nottingham performer, Emerald Ace, was just that, ace.

For the Valentine’s Day themed event she tugged at everyone’s heart strings with a portrayal of The Last Jackalope. A Jackalope is a  mythical animal  of North American folklore described as a jackrabbit with antelope horns or deer antlers.
Emerald’s reverse burlesque performance, which borders on performance art sees the loneliest creature in the forest pining for a partner who never comes, awwwww.

The amazing Emerald’s creation was just pure fantasy. She was respendent  in a huge white wig, lace bodice and white woodern antlers.
