All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts.

- As You Like It, Act II, scene vii.

Photos by Don Spiro from our wonderful Marx Brothers themed Dr. Sketchy’s with Doctor Princess Lady Scoutington as Chico, Jonny Porkpie as Groucho, Tigger! as Harpo, Lewd Alfred Douglas as Zeppo, and our wonderful hostess Kat Mon Dieu as the young starlet Marilyn Monroe in Love Happy. It was such a fun session, and so great to be a part of Marxfest!

Join the Dr. Sketchy’s facebook group to see more photos and find out about our next event on June 15th! 

Dr. Sketchy’s NYC is officially re-launched! It was such a pleasure and privilege to produce this event, and I’m so grateful to our amazing models Fancy Feast, Minx Arcana and Johnny Panic, our hostess Suffra Gent, our wonderful helpers, and of course my dear partner, Lewd Alfred Douglas for making it all happen. To say nothing of all the artists who packed Stonewall! I’m really happy to be a part of bringing this event back to life, and excited for what we have planned for it in the future - it seems to have been sorely missed. 

Our next session is Dr. Sketchy’s MarxFest, part of a month-long celebration of the Marx Brothers. Come draw and have fun with us! And join the Dr. Sketchy’s NYC facebook group to see more photos and keep abreast of all the fabulous goings on!

After, what, 5 or 6 whole days without porn on this blog? I bring you the wonderful burlesque performer Dangrrr Doll doing the Narcissus with her drag alter-ego, Dangrrr Dude! This was such a fun commission! Dangrrr knew exactly what she wanted, and the pose was a nice challenge - I don’t think I’ve drawn a 69 before. 

"The last rites of many a Victorian gentleman involved a discreet fire at the bottom of the garden." - The Sexual History of London, C. Arnold.

Incriminating letters, bawdy house menus, or lewd drawings one might hide behind a velvet curtain in one’s study served as the fuel for such fires. Join us for Dr. Sketchy’s triumphant return and let our delectable models

Johnny Panic
Minx Arcana
Fan Cy Feast

Another portrait commission - the lady in question is giving it to her husband for his birthday.

I want this lingerie set to exist, because a lady I’m smitten with is demanding one and promising to wear it. Sigh!

inmylittlesecretworld asked: I need to know good male burlesque acts now ! :O

Do you mean performers? I’m not sure what the boylesque situation is in Berlin (though you lot are lucky to have my beloved Lada Redstar), but there is quite a budding scene in New York, and our performers tend to get around Europe every so often - the godfather of boylesque himself, Tigger!, Chris Harder, Evil Hate Monkey, Mr. Gorgeous, the lovely regulars of Homo Erectus produced by Matt Knife, as well as my dear friends Suffra Gent and Johnny Panic, and of course my beloved husband Lewd Alfred Douglas

Seattle, WA is also rich in gorgeous and talented boys, since they boast Mod Carousel, who recently made this amazing thing that made the rounds on the internet.


Sucre d’Orge + Fyodor A. Pavlov = plus belle carte de vœux de tous les temps 😍😍😍😍💋💋

The card I did for Sucre d’Orge in possession of the lovely Louise!

Brand new poster for The Black Cat Cabaret.

Sucre d’Orge in her shooting star costume for her very own personalized holiday greeting card. She’s such a darling. She’s also responsible for one of my most favorite burlesque acts as Thing from the Addams Family.

I’m working, I promise. I just don’t have much to show for it at the moment - nothing I’m allowed to yet, anyway. When these commissions and book illustrations are done, I’m going to draw so much damn porn.
