Getting a chance to draw these two artists as they work was a dream collaboration.
Berlin photographer and film-maker Jo Pollux has photographed Sadie Lune so often, and so beautifully; they work together in easy harmony.
Sadie knows Jo will make amazing images, and Jo is gonna get the shot no matter what!
Being trusted to be present and document their process was such a privilege.
I have painted them together and drawn both Sadie and Jo often, but this was a whole new level.
Sadie is VERY pregnant with her second child! Nonetheless, she is a very experienced model and the vibe was extremely chill. She wore several pairs of SUPER high heeled Fluevogs!
I didn’t plan for the drawings of Jo to come out all anime-superheroine, but I was working with a new type of pen and really working fast!
I’m super grateful to Jo and Sadie for letting me share this moment.
I did a pastel drawing of Sadie posing on the couch en déshabillé but you’ll have to go to my flickr to see it!
Sadie’s Amazon wish list for the new baby is here if you’d like to help a single parent working artist out!
If you want to follow her work here’s her Insta, her twitter and her (NSFW) website.
Jo’s website is here. You can pre-order Jo’s exquisitely beautiful erotic photobook in collaboration with Sadie, “As You Wish My Lady”, here. (NSFW 🙂
My work documenting queer culture in Berlin is made possible by my Patrons on Patreon, whose monthly financial support allows me to make art.
You can help, for a little as a dollar/euro a month! My live documentary art is licensed Creative Commons and free for all to share and print, you can read about how that works here.
