TRUTH SERUM PRODUCTIONS

"making the world smaller" since 1994-ish




Hey Folks,

I've been trying to update the Truth Serum Productions for two weeks, and it's one after another after another. Mostly, it's fucking cold, and there is no heat in my apartment! Woo hoo! (They, the management, has loaned me to heaters, which I am using them as little as possible, because I pay for the electricity!)

So, I'm going to put that aside and say, "Happy New Year's" and I hope when we get through this freezing cold hell we get to experience the positive things. ((My stepmother said recently (at Christmas, actually) that I was not allowed to say (or, maybe it was a suggestion?) "things, stuff, everybody" because they are not telling stories... Oy Gavalt! ))

I'm still figuring out what I'm planning, but I know that it is going to be better than last 2017. :)

Things (oh shit!) are going to slow down some for Truth Serum for a few reasons.

One: I'm taking a break from Dr. Sketchy's! Rethinking how it can work so that artists can have fun, and me and the models can make money and have a good time. Maybe that means new clubs out around Boston, Cambridge and Somerville. Maybe in art galleries. Maybe it's all day at a specific space. I don't know, but I'll be working it out for the next few months. I hope that I'll have something to share with you in March or April. We'll see!

Two: Truth Serum Productions (website, emails, fb etc) is getting some amount of updatings... You'll be seeing and hearing about it as it comes. I've been doing shows since, like, 1994 and I've got a archive this business. (wanna help? Drop me a line..)

Three: I've got to get my art put in the world. That said, I've got a lot of work to do. And I don't know half of it! Videos? Performance art? Spaces? Getting gigs? There's a lot of stuff I don't know! I'm trying to rearrange my thought process and taking on new ways of doing it. (We'll see how long I last! ha.)

Four: All the while, still taking speech therapy at Emerson, and I worked out a new private speech therapist (2hr./meeting once a week) who's name is actually Aliza!!! Pronounced the same way! Amazing, right? (Except, I'm actually more Xray... but that's another story.)

I hope you are having a fantastic beginning of the new year! And I hope this weather starts hitting 30*!

*** THIS DR. SKETCHY’S IS BEING UPDATED. WE WILL COME BACK TO YOU IN MARCH OR APRIL WITH NEW NEWS. IN THE MEANTIME, WE ARE LEAVING THIS TEXT UNTIL LATER. 2018.01.06 ***

TWO Dr. Sketchy's: Anti-Art School A MONTH !!!

2nd Sunday : 2:30-5:30 : Great Scott 1222 Commonwealth Ave. Allston, Massachusetts 02134. Right at the intersection of Harvard Ave and Commonwealth Ave. And the T. 18+; $8 to draw, $10 to hang. All skill levels welcome! (bring paper and pens/marchers/etc)

4th Monday : 7:00-9:00 : ONCE 156 Highland Ave, Somerville, Massachusetts 02143 $8 to draw, $10 to hang. All skill levels welcome! (bring paper and pens/marchers/etc)


Dr. Sketchy's: Anti-Art School is the life drawing session you dreamed of in your deviously creative art school head. Hot models with crazy costumes, sometimes genderbending antics, poses that keep your interest for hours, nice folks around you, drinks, and it's cheap. The models talk and keep you entertained, there's good music, you could win prizes for good and bad art! You don't have to be a good artist, or someone who draws everyday. Dr. Sketchy's is a great place to start back up with your practice, or to try to pick up a new creative outlet.

We start with short poses to get you warmed up and then move on to longer and longer poses, but that's about where the traditional life drawing session stops...
