Lolita Vavoom, a curvy white woman with blonde and purple hair, poses elegantly in purple pasties and burlesque underpants. painted by Suzanne Forbes Nov 7 2022Lolita VaVoom poses for Sketcherei!

I ADORE drawing Lolita, who is both a wonderful performer and a gifted artist’s model. I painted these on old DC Comics paper from when I was a Star Trek penciller, I needed paper that would hold a wash!

Lolita is also a fierce queer Jewish activist and brings so many incredible Berlin events to life. Including the fantastic Jews! Jews! Jews!, with Nana Schewitz!

The next Jews! Jews! Jews! is on December 17, 2022.

It looks like a particularly amazing show! Mostly sold out but there will be a few tix at the door.

I love Sketcherei life-drawing sessions.

The models are always thoughtfully chosen, in allyship, and beautifully lit! The wonderful team Alexandra and Liana of Sketcherei really care about sex workers, about art and about drawing.

The Pain Proof Priestess at Torture Garden Berlin.

The Pain Proof Priestess at Torture Garden Berlin by Suzanne Forbes Oct 12 2020The first Torture Garden in Berlin was amazing!

It was held at the breathtaking, legendary, just re-opened Art Deco palais The Metropol. The performers were fantastic. Above, Bertoulle Beaurebec, The Pain Proof Priestess. She is incredible. More drawings of her on the vanilla site here and here!

Ms. Beaurebec is wearing a headpiece created by my friend Sylva Hattington of Bubbles and Frown.

Sylva did simply unbelievable costumery for the performance.
