Berliner Kinder: zoom-drawing the cutest Skeleton Zombie family in town!

Zombie Skeleton family of Berlin by Suzanne Forbes April 22 2021This was the first time I drew my friend Sadie Lune’s whole brood!

Her second child joined the family two years ago, and is seen here with a cherished Elmo. We had been planning a family portrait painting to begin last winter… but.

Instead, Sadie and Vampirina, the older sib, did a zoom modeling session for me at Halloween.

Of course, whether kids can even go to kita, or go back to kita, is constantly in flux. Sadie has been able to take the kids to the country village home of a friend much of this last year, so they have had incredible experiences with nature and animals and wildlife. Her photos and videos of the lilacs blooming, the kids with ponies, and the German countryside have been incredibly sustaining to me as I have spent this year-and-change indoors.

I did my best! I am so grateful to know and love Sadie Lune and her brood, and her older child’s co-parents. You can see Sadie’s work and social here: website, insta, twitter. Drawing Sadie when she was pregnant with the younger here!

As always, I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting Queer Berlin while I work safely at home.
