Mikelangelo and St Clare transport us to another world, Sunday 31st July

Last month Dr Sketchy’s celebrated 5 years of sketching entertainment.  Confirming our place as the world’s premier alternative life drawing movement with a tribute to US artist,  Sylvia Ji at Australia’s original alternative gallery,  Outre Gallery!

The session summed up by Harxest Mag “a room full of friendly people, an appreciation for art, beautiful models, unreal costumes and a truck load of fun times.”

So how on earth do we follow up a session like that?


We upscale Dr Sketchy’s to ensure that you guys are guaranteed to have a great few hours of fun and sketching.


Curtin House in Melbourne’s CBD has become a hub for literature, film and drinks.  It’s second floor bar,
The Toff in Town is a premier boutique performance space including a dedicated bar and dining area.

Dr Sketchy’s has joined forces with The Toff in Town to bring Melbourne a new era of
Dr Sketchy’s drawing entertainment.

Over 5 years we have hosted a veritable smorgasbord of beautiful, creative, passionate and sincere performers.  Each session has had its own life because of these people.

It is with upmost excitement that we bring you not one, but two incredibly talented and astonishingly handsome performers to celebrate this inaugural session at The Toff in Town in the historic Curtain House.

Internationally acclaimed and immaculately dressed, Mikelangelo.  Part-ringmaster, part-crooner, part-beast possessed. Mikelangelo has toured the world starring in the Olivier award-winning La Clique and with Kaberet Noir Band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen.

Saint Clare has a growing reputation nationally and internationally as a self styled singer, dancer and model. As described by the press St Clare is ‘ridiculously glamorous’, ‘a melodious and enchanting songbird’, ‘mysterious and mesmeric’.

Together Mikelangelo and Saint Clare create music that evokes an era of
sultry sophistication, another world and another time.

Mikelangelo and St Clare will be performing a selection of songs at this special session.
