Veteran Dr. Sketchy’s Los Angeles model and international burlesque star, Caramel Knowledge, became the subject of competition at the SketchKon 2018 Sketch-off between Veronica Lawlor, Andrea Joseph, & Melanie Reim. Attendees were invited to witness the mastery of three Sketchbook Skool instructors first hand. The tricky part of this session, for the artists as well as our model, was not knowing how long each pose would be. The control of when to call for the next pose passed from artist to artist making it a vivacious and wild ride for all!

Andrea Joseph is a self-taught artist living in Derbyshire, England, who creates amazing, one-of-a-kind drawings using simple materials like ball point pens. Her style requires quite some patience and persistence because some of her drawings take up to 20 hours of work! She calls herself a heavy soul, but fans love her lighthearted approach to drawing and creating beautiful hand lettering.

Melanie Reim is an award-winning illustrator and professor at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. Her loose and lively reportage style has taken her all over the world capturing everything from the sugar cane fields of the Dominican Republic and the street musicians of Havana, to the peace rallies and protests in the streets of major cities in United States. Melanie depicts a sense of energy and zest for life in her art and instills the same spirit in the artists and students she teaches.
