Dr. Sketchy’s Berlin “Broken Baroque”!

Viva Lamore at Dr Sketchys by Suzanne Forbes Jan 28 2018I was super excited for this session of Dr. Sketchy’s Berlin!

There’s nothing I love like too much, and Broken Baroque is such a gorgeous theme. As always, LalaVox and Le Pustra did it up right. Above is the marvelous Viva Lamore as Mistress Overdone. She looked both beautiful and deliciously wicked! She is such an amazing performer, and her gestures are incredibly expressive. I brought my new pastels and drew with them!

LalaVox at Dr Sketchys Berlin by Suzanne Forbes Jan 28 2018I always try and draw hostess LalaVox, as she brings her A game to her look every time. Like this ship-in-head!

Isn’t the sacque-back gown a perfect style for her?

Evilyn Frantic at Dr Sketchys Berlin by Suzanne Forbes 1 minute drawing Jan 28 2018I had been wanting to draw Evilyn Frantic for a long time, since I saw her in the street last year, introduced myself and told her I wanted to draw her picture.

This one-minute sketch was my first chance, more to follow as I clean up and finish up the pastel mess I made!

LalaVox and Suzanne Forbes at Dr Sketchys Berlin Victorian Spiritualism by Maren Michaelis.

Bonus stuff: here is a picture of me and LalaVox by photographer Maren Michaelis from the last Dr. Sketchy’s Berlin, “Victorian Spiritualism“. The setting of Ballhaus Berlin is so exquisite.

Also bonus: here is a drawing of Viva Lamore jumping out of a Campbell’s soup can, from the Sunday Slips New Year’s Extravaganza! She is wearing a handmade bra fashioned after the 1940s Schiaparelli design! How amazing is that?

If you’re interested in a similar design, last year there was a hand print bra and panty set made for the Bettie Page line by Playful Promises, the queer, trans, gender-fluid-, sex-worker-, body positivity- and diversity-embracing lingerie company.
