Passion Projects:

Dr. Sketchy’s Philly

Nicola Black Design, L.L.C. was the proud presenter of the Philadelphia branch of Dr. Sketchy’s (2.0), a monthly alternative life drawing event for artists, from October 2007 – December 2009. During our time directing the event, we built a strong audience of artists and put on a sold out event almost every time (90-100 artists)! We utilized many marketing strategies over those 2 years to ensure the Philadelphia branch was one of the top branches in the world. Dr. Sketchy’s originated when Molly Crabapple and friends began an art revolution they named Dr. Sketchy’s. Since it’s inception, Dr. Sketchy’s has become a worldwide phenomenon with over 100 branches globally. We are so proud Nicola Black Design, L.L.C. had a hand in one of the best art events in Philadelphia.

From April 2011 – April 2016, Nicola Black Design was sponsor and supporter of Dr. Sketchy’s Philadelphia (4.0) which was directed by the fabulous, Candy Mayhem!
