Art Monkeys and Friends of Dr. Sketchys,
Thank you so much for your outpouring of support for this project! We reached our $350 goal within 23 hours! Molly Crabapple is a dream to work with and we here at Austin Sketchy are so proud to welcome her to Texas. We are so excited to be able to fully support Aaron Flynn in the creation of the sculpture costumes for the Reverse Mermaid.
Please, please continue to donate to this project - we have 28 days left!! Every dollar you donate goes directly to support Austin Dr. Sketchy, which was restarted from scratch in October 2010.
From a budget of zero dollars, we have realized a full rebirth of a branch that has true Rock Star potential. Our Dame Darcy show in January saw 60 people drawing at the session - and only FOUR of them had ever been to a Dr. Sketchy's before! We are poised to take Austin by storm - but we need your support!
We use the money for the sessions to promote, pay our talented DJ, Shorty Stump (of the White Ghost Shivers) and our MC, Nathan Black and of course, to support very talented models who travel from all over just to model for Dr. Sketchy's.
Austin Art Monkeys: if you want the branch to thrive and grow, please consider donating today to ensure that Dr. Sketchy's will be around a year from now! The branch manager (me!) spends countless hours for each session booking models, answering emails, putting up flyers, managing social media, and renting equipment and only pays herself $10 per session. Until we build up the momentum of a bigger audience, we need your support!
Very fondly from the bottom of my big ol' heart,
Austin Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School
