Death By Lemons

Last Friday we hosted our very first Dr. Sketchy’s figure drawing night here at FF&G New Orleans. It was delightful, and exceeded my expectations in a number of ways. We made vodka infused watermelon, which was pretty awesome, and I’m bummed I didn’t get any pictures of our gourd bedecked with faux facial hair (David kept insisting on putting fake mustaches on it).

Nona Narcisse began by modeling some brief poses for us to get warmed up…

…and we all did our best to keep up with her. Anthony, Aurora, and David all tried their hands at drawing the complex undergarments of a burlesque dancer…

…but this guy won the prize for ingenuity as far as I’m concerned. I’ve never seen someone collage the image of a live model before (the light blue at the top is her bra strap).

By the end we were mentally limber enough to handle whatever Nona came up with next, including her “death by lemons”:

which David drew a particularly charming rendition of:

We’ll be hosting Dr. Sketchy’s figure drawing sessions on a monthly basis from now on, so stay tuned to our events page for full event details.
