rt Monkey of the Month
Spring is in the air and April is here, what better way to celebrate than announce this Months Art Monkey, Paulina Klagues! Not only is Paulina an incredibly talented artist who dabbles in almost everything that is art, especially her passion for graphic design, but she has been the talent behind creating the Dr. Sketchy’s Las Vegas Flyers since October! Each time Paulina sends me the next ﬂyer a smile spreads across my face in sheer awe of her talent in molding her artful backgrounds and the models photos together in order to capture each month’s session! Even through her insane class schedule she has shown me her incredible personality each and every month!
Fauna has been involved with the Las Vegas Burlesque scene since her graduation from Cha Cha Velour's 2010 Fall burlesque class. She is a volunteer at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Museum and also produces a monthly Burlesque show at Scoundrels Pub called "Battle Born Burlesque!" I advise to check this show out when you have the chance, it is ﬁlled with babes, bikes and swingin bands, and you never know when you might ﬁnd Fauna performing her fantastic fan routine. “Like” BATTLE BORN BURLESQUE on Facebook to ﬁnd out about the next show.

I am looking forward to the next community gathering of artists. All I am wondering is, who’s house will be next. (insert evil laugh: Muah ha ha ha ha). She has even been able to slip out for a few sessions in between studying for ﬁnals.
