Recent drag show drawings, from the Poke House and House of Presents!

Frida Pusssy for Giezas Poke House July 14 2020 by Suzanne ForbesI am giving myself permission not to try to draw everyone in a show.

It’s hard. It feels unfair. I am afraid of hurting people’s feelings. But my health is messed up, and I just can’t set the goal of drawing everyone right now. It makes it too overwhelming to even start. So I jumped in and drew Frida Pussy last Tuesday, because I love to draw Frida Pussy!

Gieza Poke July 14 2020 by Suzanne ForbesWe all have to make loving self-care choices right now, to keep it together.

Like Gieza Poke, seen here doing a cucumber mask and nightie for  Gieza’s Poke House this Tuesday just past!

Dotti Moscati for Pansys House of Presents July 14 2020 by Suzanne ForbesDotti!!

LOVE to draw Dotti Moscati! She was on House of Presents last week and of course I drew her as she performed a sassy number about not actually needing that man.

You can watch Gieza’s Poke House and Pansy’s House of Presents in Quarantine EVERY TUESDAY at 21:00 for The Poke House and 22h CET for House of Presents!

I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting Berlin’s queer, intersectional drag performers while I work safely at home.

The Pansy’s Birthday shows of Pansy’s House of Presents!

Dalaa for Giezas Poke House June 9 by Suzanne Forbes July 8 2020So many incredible performances for Pansy’s birthday!

Dalaa is a fantastic dancer; she was in the first half of the fab evening on Gieza’s Poke House.

If it were not for lockdown, I might never have gotten a chance to draw beauties like Dalaa. Getting across town to Monster Ronson’s is a huge effect for me, and one I am usually only able to make a couple times a year.

Katana Six for Giezas Poke House June 9 by Suzanne Forbes July 8 2020So I am very glad to be able to see every single Poke House and House of Presents show, for this period of time.

You can watch Gieza’s Poke House and Pansy’s House of Presents in Quarantine EVERY TUESDAY at 21:00 for The Poke House and 22h CET for House of Presents!

And see new-to-the-Pokehouse performers like the marvelous, gorgeous Katana Six!

Alexander Cameltoe for Pansys House of Presents June 9 by Suzanne Forbes July 8 2020Always a joy to see and draw Alexander Cameltoe.

Alexander’s show for Pansy’s birthday started in their workshop, which is loaded with tool goodness. Intergalactic Trash Prince  Alexander answered the Batphone and then proceeded to a gorgeous art-laden altar.

Pansy by Suzanne Forbes July 9 2020Note, I did not draw Pansy on her actual birthday.

She was dressed as an adorable baby, and I do not like children unless they are my friends’ children. So this is a drawing of Pansy from another show, when she was dressed as an adorable diner waitress bunny!

BIG NEWS: Pansy’s Pop-Up Pantry is HAPPENING Aug 2!!!

Pansy has been doing a fantastic series on her Insta stories called Pansy’s Pantry, where she demonstrates the baking of fabulous treats, with recipe, and provides education and tips for activism. Now the Pantry is coming to IRL life for a hot summer day!

You can pre-order her legendary key lime pie for pick-up here!

And always, I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting Berlin’s queer, intersectional drag performers while I work safely at home.
