Jacq the Stripper for ELSC Life Drawing!

Jacq the Stripper for East London Strippers Collective by Suzanne Forbes Aug 31 2020I tuned into the East London Strippers Collective Life Drawing livestream again, for a celeb visit!

Jacq the Stripper, performer, artist and author, posed for the session in several cool looks and entertained us all tremendously.

Jacq the Stripper Alien 1 for East London Strippers Collective by Suzanne Forbes Aug 31 2020Alien babe!

I caught the ELSC life drawing stream the week before, to draw gorgeous Sasha Diamond, and that was when I heard that Jacq would be modeling. I snapped up the last ticket!

Jacq the Stripper Alien 2 for East London Strippers Collective by Suzanne Forbes Aug 31 2020I was a fan of her work as an artist already, and really enjoyed hearing her talk and joke about New York.

She had some excellent stories! You can shop for goodies here and support her on her Patreon here.

Jacq the Stripper 2 for East London Strippers Collective by Suzanne Forbes Aug 31 2020The East London Strippers Collective is a self-organized group of professional strippers.

They “aim to shatter stereotypes and challenge stigma, whilst improving their own working conditions.”

The life drawing sessions are very well run and very entertaining; I highly recommend a visit!

I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting international performers while I work safely at home.

An evening with the BSC and the ELSC! Life drawing with strippers!

Sasha Diamond for East London Strippers Collective by Suzanne Forbes August 24 2020I was so excited about the first IRL/streaming hybrid session of the Berlin Strippers’ Collective life drawing!

The model was Akynos, an incredible Berlin talent who I love to draw. And then, The East London Strippers’ Collective Life Drawing group announced that Sasha Diamond was their model, for the same night!

And I have been wanting to draw Sasha, an amazing teacher and performer, for ages! That’s Sasha above, in rainbow wig and outfit. She has the best moves! Life drawing with strippers is wonderful because pole dancers are incredible, graceful athletes.

Akynos for Berlin Strippers Collective x Sketcherei 2 by Suzanne Forbes August 24 2020Luckily, the time difference meant I could almost be in two places at once.

I “went” to the Berlin Strippers’ Collective/Sketcherei session first, arriving virtually via Zoom to see artists gathering in the really cool new venue. Even virtually, it was wonderful to see Alexandra and Chiqui!

Akynos for Berlin Strippers Collective x Sketcherei 1 by Suzanne Forbes August 24 2020Akynos danced in a halterneck jumpsuit and I made a series of loose sketches.

It was wonderful to be able to draw dancing in an actual club again!

Akynos for Berlin Strippers Collective x Sketcherei 3 by Suzanne Forbes August 24 2020The music was excellent too.

Thanks so much to Akynos, The Berlin Strippers Collective, Sasha Diamond Pole (she has a website coming soon here) and the East London Strippers Collective!

Here is how you can follow and support Akynos: her Instagram, performer website, Patreon, Youtube and SW mutual aid organization.

And as always,

I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting international performers while I work safely at home.
