From Melanie Knight of Dr. Sketchy's Melbourne
"Dearest art monkeys,
Words fall far too short for how blown away I am at the incredible amount of support you’ve shown to Dr Sketchy’s around the world.
If you’ve not already watched Molly’s video message for SketchyCon, please do. Molly has summed up perfectly what Dr Sketchy’s is, and why SketchyCon is important as we continue to grow as a community.
Melbourne is fast approaching 4 years of sketching mayhem, with its own wonderful community of artists, models and supporters. Molly’s enthusiasm in helping set up sessions around the world has a lot to do with why Dr Sketchy’s works. It’s proven that there is more than just that group of people in Brooklyn looking for something new in their own art scene. Molly set her idea free for people to run with, now there are 100+ Dr Sketchy’s branches around the world, all with a different take but the same motivation behind it.
Dr Sketchy’s has afforded me the chance to meet some amazing people, from Melbourne and beyond. I look forward to meeting even more of you at SketchyCon and working together to give back to what has become such an important part of my life.
Thank you to Molly and all the NY crew, all of the wonderful Melbourne art monkeys and models, and of course to all of you guys for helping to make SketchyCon possible!!
See you in May!
Lots of love
