Dr Sketchy´s – Music history

I went to another Dr Sketchy´s Anti Art School session last night, this time with a music history theme. All kinds of stars posed, including Madonna, Lady Gaga, Nina Hagen, David Bowie, Dolly Parton, and more. Plus an actual rockabilly band, The Troubled Three (I didn´t know you could stand on a contrabass without breaking it!). All accompanied by a great DJ playing all the best tracks from the artists.

The more elaborate drawings on toned paper was tampered with when I got home. I couldn´t help myself, it was so much fun to keep playing with those with a white gel pen and some grey PITT artist brush pens.

Apart from being incredibly fun, I find that I´m getting plenty of practice with something that I didn´t really draw that much – clothes and folds! It is super difficult, but having dressed models actually standing still for a while really helps.

All images: different sizes, from A4 to approx. A5, UniPin ink fineliner, PITT Artist brush pens, white Uni POSCA, white Pentel Hybrid gel pen, and Koh-I-Noor Magic coloured pencils, on different kinds of cheap paper.
