ReveRso reveal and more at Bushwig Berlin, uncensored!

ReveRso with a firecracker in her ass at Bushwig Berlin by Suzanne Forbes Dec 2 2019I was honored to be a guest of international NY/Berlin drag festival Bushwig this summer.

The lineup was astonishing, and I stayed in my stageside seat by the piano, supported by kind stranger Arthur, for a good six or seven hours. There was no way I was leaving before drawing Hungry and Betty Fvck!

I made a number of lovely drawings of the many wonderful drag performers for my crowdfunded “vanilla” site. I also sketched, and finally finished, some “naughtier” performers.

That’s Berlin legend ReveRso above, putting a real fucking lit firework in their asshole!

It was very exciting! You can see my drawing of a fully-clad ReveRso at the beginning of their performance here.

Tyler Ashley, the Dauphine of Bushwig, had multiple outfits. This one, in creamy orange velour, was too sexy for chipinhead.

I might have a couple more “censored” drawings from Bushwig, so check back later this month!

 

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.

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!
