Happy Spring my little monsters! Esotre is in full bloom in Brooklyn, leading to less clothing and more outdoor zaniness. Alas, Dr. Sketchy's fell on April 14th, and the old reprobate was behind on his taxes for the last several decades.

"Plain round halos are typically used to signify saints, the Virgin Mary, Old Testament prophets, angels, symbols of the Four Evangelists, and some other figures.

Happy are the art monkeys! Wait, who is that on the far left? Where have I seen that man before? Wait-is that?
Yes! It's him! Um…that guy! A previous winner of free booze..and still silently contemplating the shotglass, as if in prayer. Our hats off to you, mysterious regular!
Of course, we had money-themed contests. My favorite was best "best drawing using calculator paper."
A few people did cut-up moasics on several sheets. You guys rock.

*In the name of gender equality, we don't have a glass ceiling at Dr. Sketchys. Instead we have two painted bedroom ceilings. One filled with pony stickers and Patrick Swayze posters, and the other covered in glow and dark stars and blueprints for the Enterprise-E. Progress!
