Break out the sad songs and half-eaten chocolates! It's Dr. Sketchy's Broken Hearts Club! For this Valentine's day we give you a picture of desperation, loneliness, and soul-crushing despair, just like every other Valentines day. Crank up the Magnetic Fields! Whoo! I mean Boo-Hoo!
And who will pose for this display of depression? Why Aprella. Of Course.
Agile Aprella as our very own muse for the misbegotten! She tore her heart out for you! The least you can do is draw.
Photos by Dr. Simon and Justin Lussier.
I did say she was agile…
Head over heels! Ah, I crack me up.
Take a gander not only at the bleeding wound but also at the hair shaped into a heart! We're nothing if not ruthlessly thematic here at Dr. Sketchy's.
Nothing says classy like drug store chocolates! Aprella also brought chocolate-dipped strawberries for the whole class. See what happens when you miss Dr. Sketchy's? You miss CANDY.
When dressing the set, me and Dr. Simon wanted a candy-cane look. We ran out of streams so now it's more "Church Basement Party." then gauzy beauty. But considering how many romantic horrors take place in wood-paneled "party rooms", I think it worked out.
Oh and we had contests. How we did have contests. I believe* this one was "best incorporation of a randy monster."
So that's where the Wild Things are! With Aprella! …suffering impotence.
I think this photo best encapsulates what Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School is like…
or maybe this one is closer to the truth…
And that's it! Put the ice cream down! Wipe your mascara-stained face and get up to start a new day! Get back out there and learn to love again! You have nothing to fear but crippling emotional pain and sustained rejection!
Thanks to Aprella! Steve Walker! Syd Bernstein! Eve Walker! Dr. Simon! And Justin Lussier! You're all on posters I kiss nightly.
Come back next time when We'll have a starman waitin' in the sky! Madame Rosebud IS David Bowie!
*I think…someone had a bottle of Brandy and I was engaging in the long-held Valentines tradition of blacking out.-----
