Dear Blog Friends,
I'm writing to invite you to my third (and perhaps my last?) photo exhibition in Tokyo, next weekend - Saturday November 22. This party/exhibition is the beginning of the end of my time here in Japan, the beginning of the sayonara process.... Oh how the next few weeks and months will fly!
Anyway, back to the exhibition party. I'd love to see you there.
The event will feature a 3 set performance incorporating 6 different shows by various dancin' girls, and will run from 9 pm - 2 pm, with an afterparty at a different club afterwards. There will also be an art exhibition and a photo exhibition (mine), and 4 different DJ's. I will be showing 15 different photos - half of them Dr Sketchy's models, the other half various portraits I have shot over the past year, all printed on canvas at 28cm x 43cm. They will all be available for purchase, natch. We're also making a calendar with some of the pictures from the massive haul I've shot over the past 7 months at the monthly Dr SKetchy drawing night (sooo much fun).
My involvement with Dr Sketchy's Tokyo has been a truly special experience, and I'm proud to have been a part of the team alongside Lady Elle, Cherry Typhoon, Hilo, Toy and Toby. We've been working hard to improve the monthly event and its profile, as well as planning this big exhibition party (which is the result of a hell of a lot of work and long mid-week night meetings). It's been a pleasure working alongside this lovely team of super-genki artists. Go Team!
Anyway, here is the spiel (and facebook event page here):

Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Tokyo is a community life-drawing event that takes place once a month at the Pink Cow, Shibuya. We search Tokyo to find sexy people who model for you for about three hours. In between poses there are contests with cool prizes, sexy performances, drinks and all sorts of mischief.
