Even though we were only able to stay for part of last month’s FestivAll edition of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, we were able to capture so many cool images that we can bring you our third consecutive week of Dr. Sketchy-inspired art. This week it’s three semi-abstract high-contrast black-and-white takes on the faces of the models. Above you see Elle Xombeah. Below you will find Penny Maple and Afrodesiac. Click the images to see them larger.You can find my earlier takes on these three lovely models here and here.
The next ediiton of Dr. Sketchy’s will be a Mermaid-themed special featuring Pixie De La Fiama. It will take place next Sunday at Kanawha Players Theater. Tickets are eight bucks in advance, ten at the door.
After a week where most readers of PopCult didn’t have any power, we’re jumping back into the PopCulture stew with a review of a new Audiocomic, a eulogy for a cable channel, news on a punk show in St. Albans and a few other scattered items.
So let’s plug in, power up and tear into it, shall we?
Audiocomcs presents Honey West in “Murder On Mars” Adapted for audio by ELAINE LEE from the Moonstone mini-series by ELAINE LEE and RONN SUTTON.
It’s been almost two years since we reviewed Audiocomics’ excellent audio adaptation of Elaine Lee and Michael Kaluta’s graphic novel, “Starstruck,” and we have a brand-new batch of really cool audio adaptations of comic book and graphic novels from this company. We’ll be looking at these in the coming weeks, kicking off with this terrific take on G.G Fickling’s female private detective.
This week we’re going to go back to the last Sunday of FestivAll and revisit Afrodesiac, Elle Xombbeah and Penny Maple, from the FestivAll edition of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. These are three digital paintings based on photographs I shot during the session that we bought you last week in this space Click to see them larger.
You may have seen Raqs Shakti, the bellydance collective that includes Jenna Brooke Swanson, The Snake and The Pot (Amanda Jane Miller and Duane Swanson) Susan Angela Hughart and violinist Alasha Al Qudwah, among others, on the latest episode of Radio Free Charleston, but during their FestivAll performances, many other folks recorded them and they’ve posted a ton of clips on YouTube. Tonight we’re brining you some of them. These videos are all posted by “GardiLiMo.”
