Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

By Jennifer Stavros, special to LAistSummer may be over but not all of the fun is. This weekend hosts a special edition in the art of the anti-artist: Dr. Sketchy’s. On Saturday, October 16th, from 2 to 5 p.m., event goers can experience more than just fashion for fashion week.

For those not familiar, Dr. Sketchy’s Los Angeles edition is a monthly event put on by Baby Tattoo that blends art, fashion, and oftentimes gratuitous nudity for local artists to practice life drawing. Models vary from event to event, as does the theme, and location. The event is usually tied to a nominal fee (as this Sunday’s edition will be) that allows the brooding artist an opportunity to ink its featured models in various poses for set intervals of time.

A diverse palate of individuals of all spectrums of artistic ability will be in attendance. Past sessions have had such internet fame as Mark Frauenfelder, editor in chief for Boing Boing. Will you spot a celebrity in this weekend’s crowd? There’s only one way to find out.
