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!
I finally finished up a bunch more of these drawings of Berlin life drawing muses E & L.
E & L, aka Rosiichbinnackt, no longer do life modeling so I was damn lucky to draw them! That’s L above; I just drew her twice 😉
You can see the previous posts from these wonderful community drawing sessions here and here.
The sessions were hosted by Lydia Schuchmann and Flavia Scuderi, two immensely talented professional working artists.
I wish you could see all the other drawings that were made there, there were some terrific draughtspeople!
And it was at one of these drawing sessions that I borrowed a chalk marker from Lydia. Using white chalk markers has opened up my drawings so much!!
Thanks a million to Lydia, Flavia, E and L!
