Our April Session
with FAWN Douglas! Fawn is an incredible friend and asset to the Burlesque and art community. She is beautiful, a go getter, has an incredible heart and is an awesome artist. She has attended several Dr. Sketchy’s sessions as an artist and supporter and I am so thrilled she has agreed to be our April model! She has recently launched a great burlesque night called Battle Born Burlesque which is held at Scoundrels Pub. You won’t want to miss this performer!

i- Vacious has been performing burlesque in Las Vegas for 5 years now. Her voluptuous personality and beautiful grace on stage has lead her to perform with several burlesque legends and talents across the Country. She has performed at the Southwest Burlesque festival for the Dixie Evans birthday show and currently can be seen frequently at the once a month “Live Burlesque in Las Vegas” show at Boomers Bar (produced by Cha Cha Velour). Vi-Vacious has been a model for Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Las Vegas since the chapter’s inception in 2008 and she was a part of the Dr. Sketchy’s All Stars session in 2010 at the Burlesque All Of Fame Weekender. Sadly this will be ViVacious’ last session with us, since she will be concentrating more and more on her Burlesque performances. So please come on out and show your support and make her last time with us a memorable one! As some of you may know, The loyal Art Monkey’s of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Las Vegas are happy to report BlackBird Studios and Gina Quaranto owner, has graciously given us her space for a week in the month of May to showcase several Art Monkey’s work.

rt Monkey of the Month

I am proud to present the March Art Monkey of the month, and his name is just to great letters, VA!

Yes, if you come to a Dr. Sketchy’s Las Vegas session you are bound to run into this incredibly talented and, yes a smidge shy artist. His steady hand and wonderful eye always brings a smile and a “WOW” to my lips when he reveals his work during our contests. VA, hears about the sessions and makes it a point to be there, even on a our first Saturday with my late notice. He is definitely someone to get to know and buy a drink for at our sessions. Va studied at the Academy of Art University in Sand Francisco, under their Computer Arts Program. Shortly after graduating he realized that he squandered his youth in art

school learning digital tools and has since made up for it by drawing and painting incessantly. In doing so, Va has developed as he calls it “an unhealthy obsession for all forms of analog art”, his favorite being scrapbooking/collage, “it will be cool someday.” (I think it is cool now.).
