Tuesday night I ventured out of my safe and normally controlled environment and ventured into the realm of the Burlesque where ordinary women dress in outlandishly complex and seductive lingerie ensembles. For those of you who have not heard of or don't know what burlesque is here's a quick definition.
- a theatrical entertainment of broad and earthy humor; consists of comic skits and short turns (and sometimes striptease)
- spoof: make a parody of; "The students spoofed the teachers"
- parody: a composition that imitates or misrepresents somebody's style, usually in a humorous way
The first 2 sketches are 20 min drawings followed by a 10 minute drawing. Then the last 2 are quick 5 minute drawings. Planning on visiting again in 2 weeks to do more Burlesque drawings
The model is from Springfield's Cherry Bomb Burlesque and the drawing session is every other Tuesday at The Art Factory 417 located at 1303 W. College, Springfield, MO from 8 to 10pm. The cost is $7 at the door.
