Felicity Felicis models for Sketcherei!

Felicity Felicis modeling for Berlin life drawing studio Sketcherei. Felicity is a tall, curvaceous white woman in her 30s, with bright red hair. She is drawn in the style of a fashion illustration, and is wearing a leopard print mermaid gown with enormous gigot sleeves and a high neck. An enormous matching hat is angled across her head.I always love to join a session of Berlin’s hybrid burlesque life-drawing studio, Sketcherei.

Sketcherei supports performers and sex workers and always has great music and vibes. Insta here, upcoming events here! Alexandra Ru (aka Barsketcher) and her mom are running the sessions together, and I love that they offer zoom access.

Felicity is one of the great entertainers and great beauties of Berlin, the rock’n’roll showgirl behind productions like The Sinner’s Saloon and The Theatre of Leeds. Her website is here!

I’ve drawn Felicity before, and actually made it IRL to her Sinner’s Saloon last month!

I’ll get those drawings up soon 🙂 Meanwhile, here she is in September 2019 and November 2019 .

I’m so grateful to my Patrons on Patreon, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me to keep working and evolving as an artist, and to support artists’ models!

Drawing Sadie Lune for The Longest Night.

When I was working at Wicked Grounds in 2009 I was introduced to the Kushiel’s Legacy series by Jacqueline Carey. Everyone at work was a fan! Prominent in the extremely kinky and queer series are the Servants of Naamah, a church and religion of sex worker priests and priestesses. It was the perfect fantasy series for the kinky queers and sex workers of Wicked Grounds!

I had always wanted to do a Winter Solstice session inspired by that feeling of luxury and sworker power, and this year we managed to organize it! Sadie absolutely stunned and amazed with her makeup and styling.
