I was so glad to draw my beloved friend and muse Noéline la Bouche again!
We convened via zoom for an appropriately themed session. As we are both disabled artists, virtual collaboration lets us work together safely.
My Patrons who support me made it possible for me to pay Noéline for both modeling and prep time.
We did similar collabs for Black Fae Day, and Halloween.
Finished the other drawing from this session!
Struggled with the background but fixed it with pastels!
If you’re interested in disabled performer life and building the emotional intelligence to cope with disability, I highly recommend reading Noéline’s posts.
And of course paying her some money because we don’t take the labor of Black femmes for free!

Noéline in a headpiece I made! And as the Goddess Yemaya.

I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me to continue documenting Berlin performers as a vulnerable disabled person.
Lolita VaVoom poses for Sketcherei!
I ADORE drawing Lolita, who is both a wonderful performer and a gifted artist’s model.
Lolita is also a fierce queer Jewish activist and brings so many incredible Berlin events to life.
From Berlin Burlesque Week to Jews!Jews!Jews!, she mixes politics and va-va-voom!
The next jews! Jews! Jews! is on December 17, 2022.
It looks like a particularly amazing show! Mostly sold out but there will be a few tix at the door.
The models are always thoughtfully chosen, in allyship, and beautifully lit! The wonderful team Alexandra and Liana of Sketcherei really care about sex workers, about art and about drawing.
