LaLaVox here once again... I discovered Steffi Schütze's work when someone at a very nice art and photography forum that I belong to posted one of her illustrations there. I subscribed to her blog and one day a post came up featuring Tronicat la Miez. I had just posed as The Singing Mermaid at the last Hedoluxe-hosted Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School in Berlin back in mid-May and had met Tronicat there. It was fun for me to realize that Steffi - who's work I'd been admiring so much since discovering it - had been in the audience that night drawing us.
Hedoluxe, who hosts Dr. Sketchy's Anti Art School Hamburg, decided back in May that he no longer wanted continue trying to host a Dr. Sketchy's in Berlin as well (he lives in Hamburg after all), and the post has now been taken over by Matthias Pflügner. And here's where Steffi comes in again. Matthias P. asked her to illustrate the poster for the next Dr. Sketchy's in Berlin; and what a delightful poster it is too:
The first Dr. Sketchy's Anti Art School Berlin under Matthias Pflügner's care will be premiering on Saturday, October 10th at 3pm at White Trash Fast Food, and is planned as a regular monthly event there. I'm really looking forward to it! For one thing, I'm very much looking forward to meeting Steffi Schütze in person at last. And I'm looking forward to being in the crowd drawing once again instead of up onstage posing in mermaid garb... ;)
