More drawings from Dr. Sketchy’s Berlin Baba Yaga session!

Marin van der Waa Narrates at Dr Sketchys Berlin by Suzanne Forbes sept 23 2018Marijn was the narrator, reading a spooky fairy tale in a voice that filled the room like smoke.

I have drawn Marijn before at Dr. Sketchy’s and was pleased to be able to do so again. Having a narrator really added to the experience of the show! Marijn is an illustrator herself, and you can follow her on the Instas here or check out her website here.

Women artists at Dr Sketchys Berlin Sept 27 2018 by Suzanne ForbesI also drew some of the artists this time!

I wound up sitting right next to the organizer of Berlin Museum Crew, artist Samantha Stover, (her mane of 60s movie star hair was covering her face alas!) and several other young woman artists. That’s Lucille Lehr with the two-colored hair! Plus my dear friend, artist and art teacher Giulia Caruso, was just a few seats away! That’s her with the fuschia streak and tattoos 🙂

Feminist performance art in East Berlin: Mad Kate at Monster Ronsons!

Mad Kate performs at Monster Ronsons Sept 20 2018 by Suzanne ForbesI was at Monster Ronsons last week for a double feature of performance artist Mad Kate and my friend Dawn’s band Das Fluff.

Mad Kate played the stripper pole, using a sensor on the bottom of their platform shoe. It was very, very cool. You can follow Mad Kate on twitter here, Instas here, and their website here.Mad Kate plays the stripper pole at Monster Ronsons Sept 20 2018 by Suzanne Forbes

The dance floor was full of beautiful young queer folx.

The joy, fury and strength of young queer people in Berlin! They are living their way into a better world, and it sustains me.
