Sebastian beams in from Tasmania!

Sebastian at home in Tasmania with apple Jan 28 2021 by Suzanne ForbesOur friend Sebastian hoped to return to Berlin a year or two back.

Sadly, that hasn’t happened, and my portrait of him remains not quite finished.

However, we decided to catch up on a zoom drawing sesh with his cool outfits, props and makeup.

It was a lovely chance to chat! Sebastian is a circus performer and producer, who fit into Berlin like he had always been here.

Sebastian at home in Tasmania Jan 28 2021 by Suzanne ForbesThe beginning of the pandemic caught Seb at home with his family in Hobart, Tasmania.

Because containment has been so much better in Oz, he has been able to do a little festival touring last year and some festival gigs on the island this summer, but not come to Europe.

Meanwhile, here he is in all his pink-haired charm!

Almost finished: a portrait of our friend Sebastian!

Portrait of Sebastian by Suzanne Forbes work in progress Nov 28 2018Our family will miss him a lot, and we hope he comes back to Berlin soon.

In the meantime, he’s posting awesome pictures of Melbourne graffiti!

I still want to work on this some more, as his arms need resolution, the background is a little unresolved and there is some teeny tiny thing I need to fix with his face.

He is wearing his mom’s scarf and arm warmers she knitted, which I think is so nice.

And I’m sorry I can’t get a better picture, it’s Berlin in the winter and it is very dark in our house 🙂

We like it dark but it does make taking photos challenging!

Portrait of Sebastian detail by Suzanne Forbes work in progress Nov 28 2018I hope to do some more work on this next week, as I’m feeling a little better than I have for most of November.
