Drawing Hungry, redux!

Hungry from livestream by Suzanne Forbes April 15 2020Is she Hungry?

She IS Hungry! I drew Hungry last summer when I was a guest of Bushwig Berlin, and I got to meet her and see her incredible beauty up close. A total thrill! Working on the drawing afterward, trying to get her face right underneath the makeup and appliance, I really studied her facial structure; I had a lot of mental information stored.

Hungry from livestream start by Suzanne Forbes April 15 2020So when she went on livestream to do a makeup tutorial last night, I felt confident I could do a meaningful drawing.

I finished the drawing at the top, from the stream, when her makeup was only half done, to focus on her features. The one above is the first one I did, like a warm-up. Hungry has a mullet now! A wonderful spiky feathery mullet, it’s an absolutely terrific cut. She said who cut it but I missed it. An unfortunate artifact of drawing from the screen is that her face came out slightly assymmetrical, when in life she is perfectly symmetrical. I haven’t learned yet how to hold my sketchbook and position my body when drawing from the screen. But I still like the drawings!

The livestream was so fun to watch, to see such complex makeup come to life. Hungry has a Patreon now, since she hasn’t been able to work and won’t be able to for who knows how long, and this kind of mesmerizing watching will be part of it.

And for me, I was able to spend two hours on the livestream drawing and documenting this unique Queer Berlin artist because of my Patreon Patrons. Thank you, so much!
