Dr. Sketchy's

I'm just back from a "burlesque life-drawing" session, it happens every Wednesday night at Dante's and it's pretty neat although they're still working out their routine. They got cut short today so they're making it up with an extra-long session next week. If you're in Portland, check out their myspace page.

At the end of the night they give out little prizes for quality, which is sort of counter to the exercise but it's not like they're worth anything and it adds a little fun. I won both "best use of color" and "most true to life" and now I have two skull-shaped shot glasses, a switchblade comb, a whoopie cushion, a rubber dog turd, some pencils, and a couple of those little plastic paratroopers.
