The Midnight Foxes: Fetish theme girl-on-girl hotness!

The Midnight Foxes for Distanced Drawing Suzanne Forbes Aug 13 2020 49pm in New York is 3am in Berlin, but I stayed up for this Distanced Drawing event!

I finally made it to a remote model session from the wonderful woman-run, sex-worker positive online life drawing group Distanced Drawing, because I just HAD to draw The Midnight Foxes !!

The Midnight Foxes for Distanced Drawing by Suzanne Forbes Aug 13 2020 3I had seen the Foxes in a very filthy show produced by The Brides of Burlesque and been blown away.

The petite performers Medianoche and The Ivory Fox gave an absolutely marvelous series of inventive poses, all glowing with queer chemistry and true vintage fetish style. Enchanting!!!

They are tremendous performers and models; they created so many beautiful shapes and interactions.

The Midnight Foxes for Distanced Drawing by Suzanne Forbes Aug 13 2020Love that vintage fetish style!

The Ivory Fox rocked classic Bettie Page hair and gave me a chance to really work on drawing the way the style moves on a living, moving person.

Midnight Foxes Lace V 2 by Suzanne Forbes Aug 2020Because of censorship problems on US platforms, I also created censored versions of my Midnight Foxes drawings using nail art lace decals.

You can see Medianoche in a similar look here, using a Playful Promises (sex-worker positive company!) black lace bralette over pasties. She has an OnlyFans where you can support her by checking out saucy looks as well! And don’t miss Damsels in Control, her gallery of gorgeous feminist pin-ups!

Using “feminine”-coded materials like nail-art decals, which also references the Letraset and Letratype of my illustration youth, is meta, and also pretty.

But you know what? It sucks to censor women’s bodies in order to be in compliance with the TOS of my PayHertre0n account. FOSTA-SESTA is an evil law that has deeply harmed, and continues to harm, the very people it purports to protect. As well as those no one seemed to care about protecting, male sex workers! Chilling effect is chilling, and the knock-on free speech effects on artists and everyone else have been devastating. I live in Europe, though, and my sites are registered and hosted in Europe, so I can show you the full glory of The Midnight Foxes here.

I encourage you to support these incredible queer NYC nightlife performers, who have been hit so hard by the economic devastation of COVID-19 in the US.

Live drawing at Peaches’ AV show at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein.

Performance artists at Peaches event at NBK Aug 12 2018 by Suzanne ForbesI made these drawings a year ago, but I didn’t have anywhere to post them til now!

Last August Berlin fave Peaches had an experimental sound and performance installation at venerable art institution Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. I went to this show with fellow artist Suzanne Wegh and ran into other cool folx we know there (drawings here!). Lots of creative performance artists from Berlin’s burlesque and dance scenes were involved with the show, in interesting flesh-colored bodysuits and bespoke pussy hoods.

The vulva heads in multiple flesh tones were made by Anna Marina Fidler, aka Miss Poppy Cox.

Movement performers at Peaches event at NBK July 14 2019 by Suzanne ForbesChanges in US law led to changes this past year in the TOS of the crowdfunding platform for my documentary artwork, Patreon. It is no longer permitted to show (or create with Patreon funding) drawings with nudity or “implied nudity”.

That includes pasties, and the flesh-colored pasties and beautiful handmade pussy headpieces on these performers certainly imply nudity!

Noeline la Bouche at Peaches Art Performance Aug 18 2018 by Suzanne ForbesIt’s hard to imagine there was a first time I drew Noéline la Bouche, because I’ve drawn her so happily so many times now.

But this was the first time, when I didn’t yet know her. I was immediately struck by her beauty and character, and as I sketched her I was confident I could create a good likeness. Noéline has since become one of my real Berlin muses, someone I know I’ll get a great drawing from. This was the first one!

Mad Kate performs at Peaches event at NBK July 14 2019 by Suzanne ForbesHere is Mad Kate being carried through the crowd!

It was great to draw Mad Kate again. The last time I drew them performing, I made the plastic wrap around their torso reflective, so it appeared opaque. That meant I could post the drawing on chipinhead and get money for it. It made me sick to censor their performance, though.

Valentina Demonia performs at Peaches event at NBK Aug 12 2018 by Suzanne ForbesValentina Demonia is always amazing.

She is another absolute banger of a muse, someone who is tremendously exciting to draw.

Performers at Peaches Art Performance Aug 18 2018 by Suzanne ForbesIt was warm and very crowded in the galleries as we worked our way through the crowd.

I was sketching the performers as they moved, yet knowing I wasn’t going to be able to get paid for making the drawings because I couldn’t post them on my Patreon. So most of the drawings languished unfinished, and all of them were unreleased, for a year.

It was a synecdoche for all that’s wrong with censoring the naked human form.

I couldn’t post these drawings of people in flesh colored bodysuits and silicon pasties because they could appear to be nude, possibly triggering a shut down of my funding.

I decided that I needed to get my art out there, even though I haven’t resolved crowdfunding for my sexuality art yet.

I’m a fat queer chronically ill disabled artist, and I don’t believe in working for free.

More, I don’t work for free – money genuinely motivates me to make art. So I need your help to create and release this free art. Keep your eyes peeled for my crowdfunding launch, and meanwhile, you can hand me a Euro if you see me around town. My Amazon.de art supply wish list is here!
