You might remember Bijou’s hilarious “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” act? Who could forget the Bijou was the WORLD’S FIRST pregnant Dr Sketchy muse with her Papa Don’t Preach number.

More culture than a tub of yoghurt

Sunday 13 April, Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne held 4 pop-up sessions on the lawns of The State Library of Victoria to celebrate Viva Italia!

A magnifico day of free activities dedicated to Italian culture at the Library, inspired by Italy’s centuries’-old tradition of the family scampagnata (picnic). There’ll be folk music, bocce, life drawing with Roman gods, tours in Italian of Rome: Piranesi’s vision, Lego monuments to build, lots of food and lots of fun!

Dr Sketchy’s has always prided itself on bringing you the most beautiful and creative muses for your sketching pleasure.

The State Library celebrated its current exhibition, Piranesi’s Vision in the tradition of the family scampagnata and Dr Sketchy’s was there right in the middle of all of it.

The exhibition features exquisite rare artworks from 18th-century Italian master-printmaker Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720–78) and highlights the grand churches, imposing palaces and monumental ruins of Rome.

So we invavded the high-brow and here’s what happened..

Evie Red wants to Play(Boy Bunny)

Our muse of the month, Evie Red will steal your hear and stun your senses with her tribute to the Blues, followed be her very cheeky PlayBoy Bunny number!

Charming, energetic and provocative, Evie transforms the art of tease and pushes the boundaries laid down by legends before her. With a distinct fusion of classic elegance and hard-edged sensuality, she is unlike any you have seen before.

Modernism inspires Evie’s performances, producing burlesque that is fresh, contemporary and unpredictable. Evie Red, the ever intoxicating charmer, likes to leave her audiences satisfied, even if on the edge of their seats.


A favourite of Dr Sketchy’s art monkeys performing her Toy Soldier routine last year and splashing around in a bath full of gold the year before that. This year she looks forward to turning on the blues at The Toff in Town as she takes hold of a new direction and loses herself in the seductive, velvety tones of rhythm and blues.
