What is Dr. Sketchy’s?
The Sketch Revolution was founded by a frustrated art school dropout in a Brooklyn dive bar circa 2005. By asking the simple question “why can’t drawing people be sexy?”, Molly Crabapple tapped into a veritable flood of like-minded contributors. Today, Dr. Sketchy’s is a movement with over 100 branches worldwide, from Akron to Zagreb, each operating as independent protagonists in the fight against the everyday mundane. Dr. Sketchy’s evolved from alternative art classes into a whirlwind cabaret of live music, neo-burlesque dancers, circus performers, flash-mobs, comedy acts, and general hoot-nannery.
