Drawing Dornika at Adenauerplatz!

Dornika by Suzanne Forbes Oct 26 2021Another wonderful meet and draw session, with incredibly talented Dornika!

I first drew Dornika in 2020, during an online show. I was captivated by their charm and stage presence, and started following her work.

I was excited to discover Dornika‘s developing body of music, music teaching, and their amazing dancing, as well as her visual art. (link there to support their work!)

This summer Dornika released their gorgeous body love anthem “Fatbulous” and performed it onstage around Berlin.

I would have given my left tit to be at one of these shows, and my tits are very nice! Next year, I hope!

 

Dornika by Suzanne Forbes Oct 26 2021 detailI learn so much about how to live in my fat body and how to be a femme in this world from how Dornika talks about embodiment.

Her wisdom is so important to me, and I’m so grateful to have a chance to know this young Berliner!

We met up at Adenauerplatz and talked while I made this drawing. It’s a very straightforward portrait, but a good likeness, and I hope to draw more dynamic full-bodied performance pictures next year!

Dornika had just come from costume fitting, and the following week directed their first film!!

Dornika in Acid Mermaid Jewelry by Suzanne Forbes Oct 23 2021I paid Dornika for posing in my Acid Mermaid Jewelry, and here is a selfie they took wearing it, plus an awesome story.

My Patrons make my documentary work of Berlin folx possible!

As my health continues to deteriorate thanks to multiple autoimmune illnesses, it is the emotional, practical and financial support of my Patrons that keeps me going, making art.

Telling the stories of Queer Berlin and the fabulous folx who live, love and perform in our city. You can help, for just a buck a month 🙂

Berlin’s cutest gothic family!

Sadie Lune and Vampirina with Hearse Sept 28 2021 by Suzanne ForbesYou know how your kid likes to drive a toy car over you?

Team Supreme Sadie Lune, young Vampirina and I did this zoom portrait sitting back in last September, knowing Halloween is our time to shine!

Thanks to my Patreon Patrons, I just finished the last drawing!

I have collaborated with Sadie so many times; she is an unfailing muse even in the hardest days. And her children are the coolest gothic angel demon babies in town.

You can see the rest of the drawings from this session here. You can learn about Sadie’s work on her (NSFW) website. And here’s her Insta, and her twitter . My insta is here!
