Join us in February the month of love and lust where The Virgin of Guadalupe meets Spalsh!

Our muse of the month, Nelli Scarlet embodies her name with scarlet lips and ludicrous glamour.


Invoking the colour of her blood red name, Nelli commands the stage with her endless long legs, red lips and killer hips.

Nelli Scarlet is passion, heat, joy and lust with experience both on stage and behind the scenes she has toured the world dominating clubs in Euphroe to Etihad and Rod Laver arenas.

Appearing as the face of Sydney’s Burlesque ball and Ruby Revue Nelli moved too Melbourne, and began working as MC and has since transitioned from introducing the acts, to being the acts.

Harxest Mag describes Dr Sketchy’s as “a room full of friendly people, an appreciation for art, beautiful models, unreal costumes and a truck load of fun times”.

Dr. Sketchy’s Melbourne is proud to attract the most accomplished performers in their field and bring them to our lovely, open community where we celebrate the fun often forgotten about as adults in creativity and drawing.

With the aid of killer tunes by Dj Knave Knixx and glorious cocktails supplied by The Toff in Town babes you’re sure to release the inner muse.

Farewell 2013 and Welcome 2014!

2013 saw a formidable array of performers hit the Dr Sketchy stage.  In keeping with our ethos  of providing an eclectic and exiting display of the country’s most unique and inspiring performers we greeted Tim Rogers of You am I, 3 sessions in The Famous Spiegeltent, Opera star Ali McGreogor, Princess of Burlesque The Strawberry Siren, Oktoberfest celebrations with Poppy Cherry, Sideshow heavyweight Lilikoi Kaos, and the world’s first ever glorious pregnant Dr Sketchy model (Bijou LaLa) amongst a bevy of beautiful and dynamic performers like Frankie Valentine, Evie Red, Vesper White, Lux St Sin.  Please follow the links for the truly wonderful photo galleries from our photographers.  You will feel like you were actually there!

In 2013 our founder, Molly Crabapple closed the doors of Dr Sketchy New York to pursue her own illustration career.  This leaves our very own Melbourne branch and the longest running Dr Sketchy branch!  7 years and growing our gorgeous family of art monkeys all the time.

And so the barr has been set and the challenge accepted.  Gird your lions for a stellar 2014 where we maintain our promise to bring you both variety and excellence in our range of performers.

2013 finale with Superstar of the Sideshow Lilikoi Kaos. Le Freak, Le Chic!

We farewell 2013 with The Superstar of the Sideshow, Lilikoi Kaos. Lilikoi created a storm of graphite with the 100 plus audience sketching her at our Famous Spiegeltent session in 2012 with the reigning King of Boylesque, Captain Kidd.  See that photo in the header bar just up there?… yeah, that’s LILIKOI!!!!!!

After travelling the world with the force that is Moira Finucane and Glory Box, Lilikoi returns to wreck havoc and cause Kaos on our sketch pads.


Eclectic, erotic, odd, fiesty, feminine. A female Houdini, with acrobatic precision in all her moves.

Lilikoi Kaos a second-generation contemporary circus performer grew up travelling the world as part of an international community of innovative artists, she works across circus, sideshow, physical theatre, comedy, and burlesque and filters it all through the prism of her own own edgy philosophy of life.

…Lilikoi Kaos thrilled audiences with a hula hoop act that was sheer skill, and a wink that would make any man (or woman) fall in love….

The Wives of Henry VIII with reigning Queen of Burlesque, Strawberry Siren

Part art, part cabaret, all fun.  Melbourne’s original burlesque life drawing event.

This month we lay out the red carpet and sound the trumpets for Australia’s reigning Queen of burlesque, The Strawberry Siren. The Strawberry Siren has been dazzling Burlesque audiences worldwide for the last 6 years drawing on her 18 year background in Circus, Theatre and Dance to provide a fresh and fancy take on Burlesque that she’s dubbed Cirlesque.

Not only a Burlesque Queen Downunder, Strawberry has recently been setting the northern hemisphere on fire, sizzling and scorching her way through the London BurlesqueFest, Los Angeles, Kansas, Vancouver and New Orleans Burlesque Festivals!

“The Strawberry Siren is the Tarantino of Burlesque…. Sexy and dangerous!”

King Henry the Eighth,
to six wives he was wedded.
One died, one survived,
two divorced, two beheaded.

Queen Strawberry will be paying homage to the Wives of King VIII with the most spectauclar of tudor inspired outfits.  Join us as we kill off these woman with our mighty pencils!

Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art Schools has been a boon to the art scene since its inception, promoting creativity and
community in every city that runs one. Providing a space for people to draw the flourishing alternative scenes that might otherwise be inaccessible to the lone artist, presenting hilarious and exciting performers as your unique muses.
