See you January 9th, sketchers!

Candy cane

Holidays are for lovers.  As are candy canes.  And naughty Santa costumes.  And suggestive Christmas tree ornaments.

We’ll be enjoying all of these things and more, rolling around in piles of sugar cookies and wrapping paper.  See you in 2011 for our January 9th event!!

Want to know what’s in store for next year?  Check out our updated Dr. Sketchy schedule – we’ve got 12 months of life drawing awesomeness going on for you in 2011.

Want to model or know a sassy burlesque queen that does?  Send them to our ‘Model for Houston Sketchy’ page!

Have a hankering to be a part of our crew?  We’re looking for some handy helpers that can help us with set decoration, promotion and other fun stuff – let us know if you’d like to play!

Congrats to Dr. Sketchy on their new site!

Dr. Sketchy website

Our home away from Houston Sketchy home is at – and our fearless leader Molly Crabapple and team have done a SUPER great job overhauling the site!

Check out the Houston branch page and check out the Dr. Sketchy store and ogle some fun Sketchy videos!!

Best thing of all?  No matter where you are, the new Dr. Sketchy site makes it super easy to search for a local Dr. Sketchy chapter near you.  Never be away from your monthly dose of debauchery and drawing again!
