Quote: I think this stripclub owner was just trying out a loophole although it is a pretty good idea. At Art School we had a lot of models who weren't really physically fit. I wonder how they'd feel if I turned up at Spearmint Rhinos with a sketchpad ?

Surprisingly, I can answer that question. Several years back, a friend of mine was having a traditional bachelor party at a downtown strip club. I thought to myself, why waste the opportunity, so I brought my sketch pad. When I got to the door, I asked the bouncer if it was it was okay. He told me if anyone complains, I had to put it away. I really did not have a problem with that, so I followed my friends inside.

Naturally they were making a lot of noise and started drinking. Since I don't drink (thus making me everyone's ride home), I found myself looking for something else to when one of the drinking games got started. I asked for one of the dancers to come over, paid for a table dance, and asked her to sit still. When the time was up, she asked for the picture, and I gave it to her. That was the last thing I paid for that evening.

Now before you start thinking that I am some wonderful artist, I must let you know that my speed sketching skills suck. One of the reasons I have never been able to do artwork at a professional level is because I am to freaking slow. Additionally, that was some of the worst conditions to draw in. The place was to dark, and lights were flashing from every direction. I was feeling lucky if I got something that looked like the person sitting in front of me.

I must have produced something she liked because she showed her coworkers, and we began having dancers ask if the artist was at this table. I was getting more attention than my friend that was getting married. My friends didn't seem to mind, it just became part of the party. I think they liked the fact that girls were fighting to get to our table, and I admit that my ego swelled a little that night as well.

The next day, my arm cramped so bad that I could not pick up a pencil. It had been, and still is, the most work that I have ever put out at one time. I can't say that any of it was any good because the conditions were terrible. However, if you are depressed about your artwork and want an appreciative audience, a strip bar might be the place to go.

Hey, weird things happen to me.

I am eyewitness.....I mean I was watching if nobody puts spiders in there.... It was for their own protection, really! ^_^


This reminds me of city hunter by Hojo Tsukasa, first manga, where he claims he goes to this "club" only to get information about the underworld.... haha we go there just to study anatomy, REAAAALLLY :P

Larger people can be great to draw! Theres something nice about making large round gestures on a big piece of paper/canvas that's great fun.

Experiencing and portraying the wide variety of human forms is an artistic challenge, and a good reminder that humanity comprises of more than the limited images of beauty we're bombarded with in the media and movies.

You're right EvilGnome it was a learning and creative experience but as you said there's a huge variety of people out there and the models we had were all the same type. Drawing the type you'd find in a stripclub would add to the variety of different shapes I'd sketched. (Do I sound convincing yet?)
