With the Sketchy Holiday Party at Lester’s on Thursday night, we asked several Sketchy Miami artists to deck the virtual halls with holiday-inspired portraits. Here are five from the series, which you can see in its entirety on sketchymiami.com. To learn more about the party — an unsilent night of live art, music, drinks, food, and possibly a gift if you get a lucky raffle ticket — visit the Facebook event page.

Sketchy Roundup: Five for Friday

By | November 25th, 2011 | No Comments

Did you know Beached Miami has a sibling called Sketchy Miami? The project has a simple and impossible goal: To create a portrait of every person in Miami. The portraits below — we call them Sketchys — are five out of the 600+ created by Miami artists. They were each inspired by a face in the Sketchy Miami photo gallery. To learn more about the project and how you can get involved, visit sketchymiami.com.

Sketchy Roundup: Red and Pink

By | October 7th, 2011 | No Comments

You will notice a few ghouls in this roundup of Sketchy Miami portraits. That is because we are encouraging — with the implicit threat of afterlife haunting — local artists to do scary Sketchys in the spirit of our Sketchy Halloween Party at Awarehouse on Saturday, Oct. 29. (RSVP on Facebook.) To see all of the scary Sketchys to date, visit sketchymiami.com/boo.

You will also see a fair amount of the color pink. Those portraits come out of Sketchy Pink, an effort to raise money for breast cancer research. To learn more, visit sketchymiami.com/pink and/or stop by our table in the Wynwood Market during Art Walk on Saturday night. We’ll be there with several local artists waiting impatiently for faces to draw.

In the meantime, check out these Sketchys from the last few weeks. Click on any one to visit its artist’s profile page, where you will see all of the artist’s portraits and learn more about him/her in the sidebar.

“Luis Diaz” by Martin Rodriguez

Martin will be one of the featured artists at our upcoming Sketchy Pink Party at The Betsy-South Beach on Sunday, Oct. 23. You’re invited!
