First pose. That was my view of the model. Ugh. The sketcher on the left was holding her large sketchbook up so she could draw.

A few weeks ago I went to a Dr. Sketchy event in their new venue, Caveat, on the Lower East Side.

I even used the support board for my sketchbook. I loved drawing her! The End.

At this point it was 6:00 and all the models stopped posing, sketchers stopped sketching and everyone gathered their belongings and assembled in the cafeteria where pizza was served and raffle tickets were pulled out of a hat, a box or something.

I wandered into the gym and looked around. The models were all on a short break and I stopped to chat with numerous NYC Urban Sketchers. At the far end of the gym the model was not present but I spotted a sketch of her on an empty chair and immediately looked around for somewhere to sit. My view was obstructed, but, when the poses began, I managed to sketch her and when a better spot opened up I moved, staying there for a couple of hours. I flipped over my book and filled up the other side of the accordion pages. I loved this model – Jolisa.
