On the roof of a fancy hotel, Miss Natasha plays the accordion.

I was invited to Miss Natasha Enquist‘s performance at the Grace Bar at Zoo Hotel. That’s the drawing on the left, in blues and greens. The Grace Bar is a very fancy place, and I never go anywhere fancy in Berlin, so it was an interesting experience. The rooftop bar was absolutely full of blue […]

Commission a Portrait from Suzanne Forbes.

Hello lovelies! I do two kinds of portraits, drawn and painted. Commissioning a portrait is easy and fun- it’s a treat for you, or a very special gift. I work only from life, so you need to pose for me in person! You can have a drawn portrait done in  ink, or mixed media (I […]

Embroidered Bear Pride Flag Berlin Bear!

Is this my most adorable Pride project ever? Last Fall, a Patron gifted me a collection of vintage embroidery hoops, including some that were very old. One had a type of closure I’d never seen before. Instead of the usual screw to ratchet the outer hoop looser, you press down on the brass bar. This […]

Painting Daria, while I can.

Daria, who has been the heart and the jumpstart of my life in Berlin, is moving to Hamburg. They warn you when you come to live here, it’s a transient city, you make friends and then they move away. We haven’t seen that much, luckily, because most of our community loves Berlin like we love […]

Work in progress: Painting Shakrah, while being photographed by Mirella Frangella!

Shakrah and I had our second sitting for the new portrait the day before I was in a bus crash. It was very lucky timing, as we had also scheduled with amazing portrait photographer Mirella Frangella. Mirella is a career photographer whose personal work focuses on intimate character studies. My friend Miss Natasha Enquist met […]

Berlin summer days on the KuDamm.

This is Roxy the DJ, she was so nice! I went to an event called Berlin Classic Days, a car show/street fair that happens in our neighborhood. Here’s a dancer who was working with the street art crew. The folks from Murales Berlin art collective had some of their graffiti/calligraphy/art-transformed cars on display. My friend Miss […]

A Tom Petty Tribute in Berlin.

My friends organized a tribute to Tom Petty and performed his songs by the river Spree! Hosted by Liliana Velasquez and masterminded by Wasp Summer aka Samantha Wareing, Rah Hell, and Miss Natasha Enquist, it was an amazing night of music. You can see them left to right above, bracketed by Baron Anastis and Joe Sparkle. Here’s Liliana, sharing […]

Boys of Berlin

Finally finished this drawing of dancers and smoochers! These lovely boys were crowding the dance floor at Chantal’s House of Shame. It took me a long time to finish this one because at Bassy Club I always sit on a stool in the raised loge area and it makes my perspective of the dance floor […]

Drawings of friends

I’m finishing up a lot of orphaned drawings. This one, of Miss Natasha Enquist at our Ladies Halloween Art Salon, is perhaps the best likeness I’ve made of her. More from this series here and here! Here’s LaLaVox, co-producer of Dr. Sketchy’s Berlin, bringing some serious bustle action. More from this event, the Victorian Spiritualist […]

Last assless chaps of the year!

Miss Natasha Enquist was performing at the DILF/Testosterone party at Club Gretchen last night. I arrived at the club, which is a beautiful venue in old military stables, to find it full of great-looking classic leather daddies in Tom of FInland gear. I was a little nervous at first with so many NYC policemen uniforms- […]
