Dr. Sketchy drawing

A ten minute pencil drawing done at Dr. Sketchy's at the Lucky Cat Lounge in Brooklyn. The model was Joey Hardcore from the Gotham Roller Derby girls. She was wearing rollerskates the whole time. The knee pads were very real and effective. To change poses, she went from a standing pose and just jumped up in the air and came down in a dramatic (seemingly) knee crushing heap on the little stage for a kneeling pose. I could see (in my mind) the billowy puffs of dust emitted from the impact. It was uncommon theatre injected in to a figure drawing environment. A new trend at Dr. Sketchy's seems to be the performers who are modeling starting the session out with a taste of what they normally do on stage.
