About Dr. Sketchy’s Worldwide


Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School was established in 2005 by artist Molly Crabapple. The original New York enterprise has since spawned over sixty branches internationally. Dr. Sketchy’s unprecedented combination of exquisite models and exciting showmanship has allowed the concept to evolve beyond its humble beginnings as a quirky artists’ get-together to become what it is today… a whole bunch of quirky artists’ get-togethers.

Scarlett Takes Manhattan

On July 8th, Fugu Press will release “Scarlett Takes Manhattan,” the first graphic novel by Dr. Sketchy’s creator Molly Crabapple and her longtime collaborator John Leavitt. Set in the demimonde of Gilded Age New York, “Scarlett Takes Manhattan” tells the story of poor Bowery girl Shifra Helfgott, who rises to become the premier fire-eater of her age.

Chock full of rigged boxing matches, dirty politics, and turn of the century lesbian culture, “Scarlett” has been described as “disgustingly wonderful” by Warren Ellis and led Margaret Cho to call Molly “THE artist of our time.”
