Dropping in on US burlesque shows!
Livestreaming shows means I can be anywhere, anytime, if I have the strength.
As I mentioned in this post, I am choosing to limit what I can do according to my level of fatigue, and set goals that are realistic. That means not trying to draw everyone in a show. I dropped in on day 2 of the Disabilitease Festival (which should not be confused with the UK-based show with the same name Disabilitease, which I also drew!) with the intent to draw a couple performers.
I drew the Festival producer Minda Mae, above, doing a beautiful seated bellydance.
And I drew Skirt Vonnegut doing their Existentialism number, for the second time!
I drew Skirt severaltimeslast year during their tenure in Berlin, and they are a friend and serious collector of my work, so it was great to get a parallax view of this cool routine.
I also dropped in on “Burlesque at Home“, a great show I would have loved to have seen and drawn all of.
Above, New Orleans icon Miss Jay Broussard!
Aka, Jessica Champaign. What a legendary performance! Miss Jay was the finale.
