What is Dr. Sketchy’s?

We’ll be combing San Diego to find the most beautiful burlesque dancers, delicious fetish models, spunkiest Rollergirls, drag queens, drag kings, belly dancers, and the most rippling hunks of man. Then we let you draw them for three hours. Interspersed with posing are ridiculous drawing contests (best left handed drawing? Best incorporation of a woodland critter?) where you can win alcohol and fancy prizes.

Dr. Sketchy’s is the little Brooklyn event that became a movement. Founded in 2005 by artist Molly Crabapple, Dr. Sketchy’s asked a simple question. Why can’t drawing people be sexy?

From its humble Brooklyn beginnings, Dr. Sketchy’s now has 100+ branches around the globe, including Hollywood, London, Tokyo, Rome, and Melbourne. Since it’s successful launch during Comic Con 2007, Dr. Sketchy’s San Diego branch has been going strong each month, featuring everyone from burlesque beauties to professional dancers to hunky male models.
