Happy 5th Birthday Detroit Sketchy!
Forgot to post these, from last month's fifth birthday celebration of Dr. Sketchy in Detroit. Had a whole troupe of wacky burlesque beauties to work from, plus a fire-twirler performing afterwards and cupcakes! Next session is this Thursday.
A very smart person at the DIA decided to hand out foam cut-out hearts to visitors for the Valentine's Day weekend, with the idea that you could lay the heart in front of your most beloved artwork. Well, I'm too much in love with too many items in the DIA's collection to choose just one, so I snapped some semi-selfies of me giving my heart to just a few of my favorites.
