Life drawing with Liliana Velásquez at Dr. Sketchy’s x Drink and Draw Berlin!

Liliana Velasquez seated at Dr Sketchys Berlin Drink n Draw kunsthaus Nov 24 2019 by Suzanne ForbesI don’t do life drawing often, because I did so much in art school.

If I’m drawing a naked person, generally they are gonna be fucking or setting something on fire. However, I made an exception for a special intimate session of Dr. Sketchy’s Berlin at the Drink and Draw Berlin kunsthaus, starring model Liliana Velásquez.Liliana Velasquez nude at Dr Sketchys Berlin Drink and Draw kunsthaus Nov 24 2019 by Suzanne Forbes

Liliana is a friend and muse who I have drawn many times because she is one of the hardest-working entertainers in Berlin. I’ve caught her doing stand-up, producing variety shows, hosting New Year’s events, teaching the tango at her live talk show, and more.

The session started with a batch of one and two-minute gestures, and I will leave you with those. Thanks so much to Liliana Velásquez, Lala Vox and Syren Joey of Dr. Sketchy’s Berlin and to the great folks of Drink and Draw Berlin!

Some very sexy moments at Kabarett der Namenlosen!

Mama Ulita and Lada Redstar at Kabarett der Namenlosen November 17 2019 by Suzanne ForbesI made it to Kabarett der Namenlosen!

The show is a time-travelling fever dream of Once Upon a Time Queer Berlin. Polymorphously perverse and immersive, it contains many seductive moments. Above, Mama Ulita and Lada Redstar get cozy! I’ve been ACHING to draw Lada Redstar for years, and I hope I get to do it again soon cause she is a BOMBSHELL. Wigs for this show are by Nina Butkovich-Budden and they are so amazing.

Julietta la Doll at Kabarett der Namenlosen November 17 2019 by Suzanne ForbesI’ve had plenty of sexy girls in my lap, but Julietta la Doll might be the sexiest!

I was lucky enough to get a front-row seat for Julietta‘s naughty phone operator performance, involving two glasses of water and no pants. Thanks Julietta and stage manager Lady White Rabbit for making sure my drawings didn’t get wet! Yeah, the drawings didn’t get wet, but I got soaked 🙂

ps: I’ve drawn Mama Ulita before, you can search for her extreme genderqueer hotness on my vanilla site.

The crowd broke into cheers at the young lady’s courage.
