What a treat to draw Coco Deville for the first time!
International burlesque chameleon Ms. Coco Deville was in town to perform for beloved Sinner’s Saloon one year anniversary show. So she also made time to grace the Zum Starken August stage for Sketcherei!
I absolutely loved Ms. Deville’s Voodoo Priestess act and costume.
Her performance is amazing, and her costume is so detailed and beautiful. It has a real Ghita of Alizarr vibe!
Coco also did a Devil’s Samba act in red!
With horns 🙂
You can see a showreel and gallery of Coco Deville performing on her site.
Her site is here and Insta is here.
Thank you for this lovely accessible event Sketcherei and Coco Deville!
Sketcherei supports performers and sex workers and always has great music and vibes. Insta here, upcoming events here! Alexandra Ru (aka Barsketcher) and her mom are running the sessions together, and I love that they offer zoom access.
I’m forever deeply grateful to my Patrons on Patreon, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me to keep working as an artist, to share my art for free, and to support artists’ models!
This drawing was begun in 2017.
It depicts a moment I saw out the window of the M19 bus in West Berlin, late at night. A bold young woman just blissfully walking away. I drew her and the young man, but didn’t want to draw the bicycle or background, so this quintessential Berlin moment languished unfinished for years. I found a stack of unfinished 2017 drawings this week, and decided to finish a couple of them, thanks to my Patrons.
I am so thankful for my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me to continue making art.
