Hey folks!

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]

I believe the appropriate vernacular is: that b*tch is fierce!

On to the seriousness: great piece. I love that the moon can be seen in the background. I love that we are peeking in on some bizarre and dangerous ritual. The subtle glow of the blood and discarded skulls make me wonder what kind of power Ms. Cheezburger commands, but it concerns me that her followers appear to both love and fear her.
