Houston Sketchy goes tribal for May 18th Sketchy!
This month’s Dr. Sketchy is going wild for belly dancing – it all happens at this month’s Sketchy party at Avant Garden on Sunday, May 18th from 2-6pm.
We are brimming with happiness to announce our awesome model Ms. YET (aka: Yvonne Torres), of the dance troupe The Renegades and Their Collection of Carnies. Ms. YET is a fabulous dancer (meaning we’ll get a couple of kick ass performances!), seasoned model and an artist herself – a veritable renaissance Dr. Sketchy model 🙂
We had some requests for a twist on our previous gorgeous models, so we’re bringing you a whole new kind of subject to draw and drink with. Tattoos, piercings, amazing belly dancing outfits – our artists will have a brand new kind of Houston Sketchy beautiful sketch candy this month!
More on Ms. YET, in her words:
I am a mixed media artist working primarily with ink on paper, collage, and photography. My body of work documents my creative process and artistic growth. These pieces explore invented characters and the life of the line that leads to their creation. The techniques and execution of my characters and artwork originate from my background in fashion, fabric design, drawing, painting, and street art (graffiti). Sound, music, and the painful challenges of human conflict and emotion inspire me.
I am a contemporary belly dancer. I perform and study regularly throughout Texas and the United States. My current dance study encompasses traditional belly dance forms, American Tribal Style, and Hip-Hop. My dance performances range from folkloric pieces, modern belly dance fusion and an investigation of improvising movement to sound. I curate a monthly show at Avant Garden with the dance troupe The Renegades and Their Collection of Carnies.
