    If you are in NYC, there’s also this at the Society of Illustrators:

    I don’t know if this is continuing into the new year, but I suspect it is. I used to go back in the 80s/90s: every night was themed and the model would have appropriate props, which would sometimes be ignored. The Society is a great place anyway, and it has an extensive research collection.

    Makes me want to sketch, and I don’t have an artistic bone in my body. But hey, inspiration is inspiration. Right?

    Got my ticket when this was first announced! I can’t wait to start the new year with a delirious marathon of creativity!

    Do they ever have mail models? I live in NYC and it seems from their ads and their websites that it is exclusively women. Pass.

    Pure art and it leaves me jealous. I did two years of life drawing at the Art Institute of Seattle in ’87 and our models looked nothing like that. They were street people with dirt caked on their ankles. They knew how to pose, though.

    RE: Anynomous.

    While Sketchy’s NYC definitely has fewer male models (they unfortunately don’t attract the audiance female models do), we certainly have them. We’ll be having the amazing Nik Sin posing on January 16th as Toulouse Lautrec. Here are pics of some other great guys we’ve had in the past

    Dr. Sketchy’s Los Angeles sometimes features male models. There will be two male models during the 26 hour marathon. In 2010, the split will likely be about 80 percent female and 20 percent male.

    I should go. I wouldn’t mind seeing Michael Hussar paint.
