A night with Dr. Sketchy

This past Monday I attended my first ever Dr. Sketchy Anti Art School event. A Dr. Sketchy event is described as "life drawing with a twist. Drinking, Drawing, Dames and Games!" It was held at the Gypsy Cafe, a fantastic little Mediterranean place here in Pittsburgh owned by my friends Jim and Mel. It was enormous fun, I even won a couple of prizes for my sketches: a bottle of wine and a rather unique balloon animal creation.

I've posted the sketches here. Each one drawn between 2 and 10 minutes. The theme for the night was "Hobo Erotic." You can see some photos from the night at Amber Love's Facebook page. Did I mention I had a great time? Well, I did! I can't wait to do it again next month.

Here's one of the sketches that won me a prize. A hobo clown created a balloon animal before our very eyes and we had to sketch what we thought it might be:

My sketch was the night's winner for that particular round, so I won the balloon animal. I'll let you guess what it is:
