Dr Sketchy's - August
Photographer Michele Hengeveld is the new principle of Dr Sketchy's Las Vegas - a monthly event held at Dino's Lounge. A combination of 'drawing, drinking, prizes and debauchery', Dr Sketchy's this month featured the talented Carolin Feigs and Erin Marie Sullivan as models.
The concept originated in New York in 2005 when artist and burlesque performer Molly Crabapple began hosting life drawing sessions in bars, featuring burlesque dancers and performance artists.
Now an international phenomenon, Dr Sketchy's premiered in Las Vegas in June 2008, with burlesque performer Cha Cha Velour as principle. As I was visiting Las Vegas at the time, I was able to attend the inaugural event held at The Palms.
