The Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Marching Band – with Bijou Lala

Band atten-hut!


Drum roll please for our May muse, Australia’s French Jewel – Bijou LaLa. Crowned second place in Miss Burlesque Australia 2012 and winning the title of Miss Revival, a fire cracker entertainer best known for her hilarious theatrics and wicked dance skills Bijou is an experienced fan twirler, samba shaker, hip-hopper and parkour wild woman!

A wicked temptress who indulges in all things French, she has one thing to ask you… Is that a baguette in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

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.

This May be prepared to stand to attention as Bijou brings her Marching Band Skipping Girl to the stage.

Leave your drums behind – but do bring your sketch pad and pencils!

The world’s premier alternative drawing movement. Whether you’re an artstar or a scribbling newbie, Dr. Sketchy’s is the perfect place to get your fill of drawing fun. Come sketch glamorous underground performers, listen to good tunes, and drink great cocktails.
Dr Sketchy’s 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 of all abilities to draw the flourishing alternative scenes that might otherwise be inaccessible to the lone artist.
Harxest Mag describes the event as “a room full of friendly people, an appreciation for art, beautiful models, unreal costumes and a truck load of fun times”.


Great tunes brought to you by resident Sketchy DJ, The Knave! Bringing a massive collection of boogie woogie, hip shakin’, room-a-quakein’ tunes! Expect an infectious blend of nostalgic flavour that will have you toe tappin while you sketch.. (The Knave is not liable should you lose your bananas)

Don’t forget your sketch pad and pencils!

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..
