Amazing performer Akynos lit up the stage!
One of the last events I hit before I self-quarantined was Pansy’s House of Presents at Monster Ronsons. This edition was hosted by Gieza Poke! Although MF Akynos is active in modeling for Berlin’s life drawing community, I hadn’t had a chance to draw them before. What a thrill!
Like all performers in Berlin, Akynos needs your financial support at this hard time. Become a Patron here!

Such a treat to draw lovely Chiqui Love!
I met her at the Life Drawing with Berlin Strippers Collective session I recently attended, and I have been so thrilled to see the group thriving.
Chiqui is a terrific model, with burlesque performer skills as well as pole, and she brought fabulous outfits for the session.
I also created some drawings of her in her outfits for my Patreon-funded blog and you can see them there!
The session was put on by Berlin life drawing session organizers Alexandra Ru and Liana Gilman of Sketcherei.
Everything was very well-organized, with excellent lighting!
Chiqui also had an excellent playlist!
Berlin’s life drawing scene, with its diversity, strong female-identifying presence, and inclusion of sex workers, is a miracle and a treasure. I am so grateful to work and draw in this city alongside my colleagues!
