Longtime muse Noéline la Bouche selfie photoshoot in headpiece by Suzanne Forbes for Halloween!

Noeline la Bouche in headpiece by Suzanne Forbes Oct 31 2020 1Beloved muse and inspiring performer Noéline la Bouche got the headpiece I sent in time for a Halloween shoot!

I gave it to Gieza who gave it to Pansy who gave it to Noéline at Monster Ronsons during the Naked People telling Scary Stories show last month!

I absolutely adore them! Just as I adore Noéline, who has been a thrill to draw since the very first time.

I have drawn Noéline in person often, and often this past year on livestreams.

A fellow disabled and chronically ill person, Noéline has been very open about the challenges performing presents. I am enormously grateful for this work, because it creates a better climate of transparency and acceptance for all of us in the Queer Berlin arts community.

I often say I can’t make a bad drawing of Noéline.

I’d like to ask you, if you have a moment, to pop over to Noéline’s instagram feed and offer good wishes and appreciation.

Noeline la Bouche for Pansys House of Presents by Suzanne Forbes Sept 10 2020Gieza’s Poke House and Pansy’s House of Presents returned to their home stage of Monster Ronsons this week.

So I am working on wrapping the drawings made from the livestreamed shows. I have lost track, despite my best efforts, of which night some of these drawings are from. There were five months of online shows, with a Poke House and House of Presents every single Tuesday!

I know the drawing above of eternal muse Noéline La Bouche was begun during late July or early August, and I just finished it today.

Yvonne Nightstand for Pansys House of Presents July 14 2020 by Suzanne ForbesThis one, of hilarious Yvonne Nightstand, was done early in quarantine.

Possibly April?

I’ll be rounding other drawings from the livestreams here as I finish them.

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