FYI and Goodbye!

I am no longer in the Dallas area (or living in Texas even), so will not be posting updates and events here for the DFW artist community. Hopefully, the original creators of the Dallas Sketchgroup blog will keep on doing so instead. :)


Saturday, January 17, 2009 / Massive Black Dallas 2009 Workshop!!

Just announced yesterday on, Dallas is the host city for the next CA/ Massive Black, Inc. Workshop! Here's the info that's been posted so far:

ConceptArt.Org International Art and Design Workshop:
DALLAS TEXAS - March 28-31 2009

The next workshop is coming hard and fast. Are you ready? We are. and Massive Black have put together a stellar list of instructors, great sponsors, and a fresh program covering aspects from the games, toy, film, and fine art industries. The venue is beautiful. We are right next door to a gorgeous museum full of world class art, and have more planned than ever before. When I say we have more planned, I am saying we are pulling out all the stops. Art, jobs, culture, music, performers, training, and even more will be happening. We have a great list of sponsors including Google, SMU, the Guildhall, ReelFX, the prestigious AFI film festival, Corel and many others. This is going to be a big show with more art than ever before.

Time is short. Much to do. The official announcement will come this week and all info will be released then.

Tuition is 600 bucks and we will have an early bird offer which includes free downloads, cheaper tuition, and more. All the info will come this next week. Start getting ready folks...we are going to Dallas and will be shaking the art world from the top to bottom.

We chose Dallas as it is central to everyone here in the US and is a very affordable city to travel to. Of course, the local sponsors are world class too. This is going to be a great show.

The Shanghai show is still in the works but has been moved to late 2009 in order for us to find addtional sponsors. Dallas will be the only workshop we do in North America in 2009.

See you all soon!!

Something Completely Different: Dallas Dr. Sketchy

I just happened to hear about an event today that sounds cool: a Dallas Dr. Sketchy event perfect for an additional bit of Halloween weekend creativity (for adult artists). I've heard alot about these rather fun figure drawing sessions (NYC, Seattle, Vancouver, Austin), but haven't had the opportunity to attend one until now. It looks like there's a session this weekend at City Tavern on November 2nd:

Dallas Dr. Sketchy, November Session: Ghouls n Girls
Sunday, Nov 2 4:00p
at City Tavern, Dallas, TX
Price: $10 - $15

Join us for a special post-Halloween Dr. Sketchy. Ghouls and Girls, Drawing and Prizes

"Dr. Sketchy's is what happens when Cabaret meets Art School" A creation of Miss Molly Crabapple in NYC that has spread across the globe, finally Dallas has Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School.
Ok so what's this all about anyway?
Well, just show up at one of our monthly sessions with your paper, easel or drawing board or whatever and any dry medium of your choice (dry mediums are pencil--charcoal--pastels--watercolors are ok too etc.)
NOW this is where it gets good! We supply the hottest most fabulous outrageously delicious burlesque superstars, roller derby babes, amazing contortionists, and other assorted local interesting muses for your drawing delight. As if the eye candy and sketching madness wasn't enough, be prepared for a heavy dose of fun.
Games and contests? Yes, there will be some.
Prizes? Of course, many.
Drinking and debauchery? You bet your sweet little ass.
So stay tuned to our calendar for our monthly sessions!

In case you're not already familiar with the Dr. Sketchy events for artists, check out the links for more info. It sounds like these will be running monthly -- YAY!! Maybe consider the Dallas sketchgroup meeting Sunday mornings as the warm-up. ;)
