Original sketch cards drawn for Upper Deck’s Marvel Masterpieces II trading card collection.
Drawn at this past Dr Sketchy’s Madison! Our model was the outstanding Boy from Cherry Pop Burlesque. He gave marvelous, dynamic poses that we could definitely use in our art. No kidding, I think he should model for us more often. I know I’m not alone, ‘cause many of us rooted for an encore. Encore, Boy!
Also, today is my birthday. Happy b-day, me!
Our model was Crackerjack from the Mad Rollin’ Dolls, and boy, is she cuter than any of your buttons. She was a delight to draw, and moreso to just watch, frankly. Times like these when all I want to do is take pictures.
(As an aside, going to Dr Sketchy’s invariably makes me want to be a life model. Dude. . . .)
Another cool thing to happen while Stacie and I were there was that someone came over and told us he had attended the workshop I co-hosted with Studio Antithesis at last year’s Madison Zine Fest. He said it inspired him to get going with his comic, which was fantastic. He gave us his website link, but I’m afraid it’s in Stacie’s sketchbook right now so I can’t point it out. But it was great to meet someone who remembered me — us — from that workshop!
This past weekend, I nearly lost my Sinny-babe. It happened so fast that there was no time for me to panic, but now that she’s safe and sound and happily munching on rice, I can engage in all the cardiac arrest I want.
She’s such an intelligent, booty-ful bird.
On another note, below are some of what I drew at Dr Sketchy’s this past weekend:
