I love to draw musicians. They are among my most favorite subjects.
As a non-musical person, being able to create music is like some kind of sorcery to me. So when I was invited to draw live at the party for the release of Donut Heart‘s new video I was very excited. Look at Alfred Ladylike and Rah Hell tearing it up!! The songs are hilarious, “Dude Band” is possibly my favorite. Rah used a heavy piece of chain for percussion at one point, which is not a thing I had ever seen. Although I dated a drummer for two years in my teens!
What a great time I had! Such a wonderful circle of people, and such delightful performances.
Donut Heart is fucking funny and also rocks out. I first heard Alfred Ladylike perform “Professional” opening for Amanda Palmer here in Berlin (click for live drawings of Amanda, my very favorite musician to draw).
I helped Rah glaze the vegan donuts because if there is one thing I know, it’s getting sweet treats ready for a party. There were many highly drawable attractions at the Donut Heart event, as you can see.
Kay was a boylesque Jesus, and kindly expiated one of my many sins.
Natascha did body painting like this cupcake on my bosom!
You can see her here body painting live on stage. She is an artist on non-human canvases as well.
David sang “Chocolate Jesus” from the Holy Book of Tom Waits.
It was grand!
Ludwig is a wonderfully cozy clubhouse of a bar/gallery, staffed by barefoot punks in skirts!
It feels like your friend’s living room. Look how chill the altar boys are, enjoying their beers.
I met so many cool people of all ages, like the fabulous Merlin Dietrich!
These are some of the best drawings I’ve done in years. I feel like I’m truly recovering my health and finding my feet in Berlin.
oh suzanne, thank you so much for this beautiful written blog and the beautiful moments you captured of the event. it was so lovely to meet you.
