Dr Sketchy’s Madison, round 2!

Dr Sketchy's Madison 2 - Crackerjack

On the right: from this past Dr Sketchy’s Madison. You should visit its pool, where there’ll be more stuff from other artists.

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!

Dr Sketchy's Madison, & birdie pics!

In case you hadn’t heard, the next Dr Sketchy’s Madison is this Sunday! Be at the High Noon Saloon for some drawin’ fun, good music, and smashing times!

Now, let us commence melting into a puddle of awww:

Peeps preening, May 07

Sin behind cuttlebone

Say it with me now: Awww!

Darn right I’m their sugar-mama.

The cuteness is utterly overwhelming

Want to know the secret to melting a girl’s heart?

Be a bird.

Sin resting

Cute-and-fluffy-ness beyond compare.

Not a bird? Sorry, can’t help you there. You’ll just have to suffer.

Sinny-babe & Dr Sketchy's

Sin Nov 06

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:

Cardinal in snow, and ze birdies

Cardinal on my deck

We had a snowstorm yesterday. This big, poofy red cardinal was on my deck, feasting on scattered seed below my birdfeeder. It was almost as big as ze birdies!

Speaking of which, it’s been a long while since we’ve seen pics of ze birdies, hasn’t it? And so I present. . . close-ups! (Da-dum-dum-daa.) I love the macro function on my G7. Love.

Sin up-close

Peeps, looking all male-protagonist-like

The cuteness is overwhelming.

Kota Bahru pics

Just came back from visiting my hometown of Kota Bahru. You’ll notice most of the pics are of food. That’s what M’sia is mostly about, y’ know. Good food in the sun.



Dragonfruit

Dragonfruit

Dragonfruit. Originally from Vietnam, now a very big thing over here. Pretty funky!

Addendum: The plant and fruit originate from Mexico, but it was introduced to M’sia from Vietnam.
