Raquel Reed @ Dr. Sketchy NYC

Raquel Reed @ Dr. Sketchy NYC

A couple of weeks ago I went to a Dr. Sketchy NYC session at the Bowery Poetry Club featuring Raquel Reed. Raquel Reed is a burlesque performer who is also a musician and pinup model. She wore fabulous vintage outfits for her session. The colors were amazing, especially on the turquoise blue fur that she wore. I had drawn her last year in a special Valentines Day session and have been following her on Twitter and Facebook since then. In addition to her modeling she is also a make up artist for MAC cosmetics. I recently found out that she works at the MAC counter near where I live and I’m hoping to book her for a make up lesson to get a “vamp” look.

  1. There was a Dr Sketchy’s session here in Newcastle, NE England (NYC sounds so much more exciting). Unfortunately by the time I found out about it it was too late to go. Sounds an amazing drawing event. And I love your finished piece and sketches.

      Thanks so much ziggyshortcrust! If you haven’t done so before, you should check out the Dr. Sketchy’s site where you can see what’s going on with the various branches around the world. I’m pretty lucky because I can go to the NYC and New Jersey sessions.
