Sketchy’s Hours:

Friday 2pm-8pm // Saturday 11am-8pm // Sunday 11am-8pm



Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School returns to Ink-N-Iron for a 5th straight year of epic figure drawing spectacle in the Boiler Room, bottom floor of the tattoo hall.

Since 2005, Dr. Sketchy’s has been the name in alternative drawing. From illegal flashmobs to the Museum of Modern Art, Dr. Sketchy’s has brought artists a rule-breaking cocktail of dames, drinking and drawing. Dr. Sketchy’s branches draw in over a hundred cities around the globe, from Akron to Zagreb. In 2011, Dr. Sketchy’s Los Angeles and Baby Tattoo Books produced the World’s Biggest Dr. Sketchy’s at Ink-n-Iron with over 1000 artists sketching more than 100 live models over the course of the weekend. World renowned art legends including Coop and Michael Hussar were on board
to draw alt supermodels including Mosh and Skin Diamond.

In 2014, under the leadership of Ringmaster Bob Self (aka Mr. Baby Tattoo), Ink-n-Iron attendees will have even more opportunities to sketch famous models side-by-side with master artists. Dr. Sketchy’s is included with festival admission and will be open all three days of the event.

Whether you’re an artstar or a scribbling newbie, Dr. Sketchy’s is the perfect place to get your fill of life-drawing.
