Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

All we wanted for Christmas was on display this past Sunday afternoon at Dr. Sketchy, the popular life drawing art class / burlesque show that takes place at Avant Garden on the second Sunday of each month.

To celebrate a successful year of Dr. Sketchy's Houston outpost, organizer Katie Laird invited a bevy of beauties out for a full-on burlesque bash. The theme for this super-sized Sketchy was "Christmas cooking," and the models made pretty with mixing bowls and whisks while photographers and artists captured the various scenes.

Our own photographer was there, too (he has such a tough job sometimes). Check out our favorite Dr. Sketchy pictures below and don't forget to check out our slideshow.


Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
