Dr Sketchy at Brew House Friday March 14 2008 Pies, Pirates and Piraro! Pi Day

Pies, Pirates and Piraro! Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Pittsburgh goes Bizarro at the Brew House. On March 14th, 8;00 PM, Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School Pittsburgh will celebrate Pi Day (3.14) with nationally acclaimed creator of the comic Bizarro, and Pie aficionado, Dan Piraro.
Dan will be emceeing the lively burlesque life drawing session with his own unique brand of comedy and cartoons. Dr. Sketchy will pay tribute to Dan’s iconic use of pies in his comic by celebrating “Pi Day” with Pies, Pirates and Piraro! This is his first time hosting a Dr. Sketchy event anywhere!
When many artists think "life drawing," they think of sterile rooms, bad lighting, and bored, silent, models with nary a hint of personality. Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School has changed all that. Dr. Sketchy’s models will don pirate garb, as cartoonists, illustrators, painters and artist of all kinds sketch, drink, and play outrageous games befitting Dr. Sketchy’s irreverent atmosphere.

Started in 2005 by artist and burlesque dancer Molly Crabapple, Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School is the little New York art event that became a movement.
The themed sketch sessions have drawn an eclectic group of artists and models of all disciplines, shapes, sizes and breeds.
Dr. Sketchy past themes have included Gypsy Tramp’s and Thieves, Space Age Bachelor Pad, and “Love and Hate”.

Dan will be acting as emcee as well as performing at the event. He will also be signing copies of his latest book, “Bizarro and Other Strange Manifestations of the Art of Dan Piraro." Bizarro appears in 250 markets worldwide.
Modeling at Dr. Sketchy for the March event, official spokesmodel Miss Ashley Stone, Derby Demons: La Diabla and Damage Dahl, and Sketchy regular Lauren Toohey. There will also be a very special performance by renowned Burlesque artiste Paige Turner and her seductive Pie Dance!
This project supported in part by a Seed Award from the Sprout Fund.
Dr. Sketchy’s will happen Friday March 14th, 8:00pm at the Brew House, 2100 Mary Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15203
