My roommate, drag queen Edie Cheezburger, managed to come out on top in the local drag competition here in Atlanta, Dragnique. Her performance as a zombie voodoo queen (with her gaggle of “worshippers” performing on stage with her) was inspired, and truly deserving of the win.
I promised Edie I would do an illustration for her if she won, and so here it is. Honestly, I might have done something anyway. Edie has been something of a muse during the 5 weeks of the competition, each performance dazzling and different, proving to me that drag is more than just wearing women’s clothing and shaking around on stage. She is a skilled artist and every week was proof of that. This is my thank you to her for being an inspiration!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. She was certainly happy with it.
For the curious, Edie is on Facebook! [link]
