I got to draw the performers of Drag Syndrome at last!
Having to miss the
Drag Syndrome show in Berlin last Fall was one of the times I felt most frustrated and saddened by my health problems. The group, described as “highly addictive drag queens & kings with Down-Syndrome”, looked so vivacious and happy! I so wanted to draw Horrora Shebang, above! And luckily I did get to, thanks to online shows!
I am so grateful there was a livestream show of these incredible divas this Spring!
Culture Device and Queer House Party, the show featured multiple acts and costume changes from each performer. Above, the gorgeous Gaia Callas!
The most wonderful performers, the most charismatic stars!
Justin Bond has incredible moves!!
Drag Syndrome and the Friends was one of the best drag shows I’ve ever seen. The House has fantastic dancers!
And fabulous Horrorchata started the show off!
A treat to get to
draw her again after last summer’s Bushwig Berlin.
Also performing was musician Indoor Goblin!
Lovely music! I have a whole bunch more drawings from
Drag Syndrome and the Friends, and I will be posting them soon.
Meanwhile, to learn more about these fantastic performers:
I absolutely encourage you to check out the
videos, see this new movie by Jess Kohl and read the article in Vogue.

I made another Sacred Heart.
For me the Sacred Heart symbolizes our burning, blazing love for each other, our ability to keep going with love and find faith at the darkest times.
This one really lights up!
As a person with no religious education beyond the Narnia books, I don’t actually know what the Heart Afire means to people raised in churches.
To me it’s a companion to the Phoenix, a representation of the flame of compassion and faith that burns in our hearts.
(little peek of my Phoenix tattoo in this shot!)
This Sacred Heart is Made of Angelina Fantasy Film and UV resin, mostly.
Plus holographic vinyl, iridescent vinyl, opal fimo, translucent fimo, microbeads, micro glitter, hex glitter, oilslick pvc. and some ribbon I’ve had since 1995.
This piece is part of a whole wild road I am going down with Angelina fantasy film and uv resin.
One of the earliest projects
here; how to google Angelina Fantasy Film here. I have been making SUCH beautiful things! More about them next month.
Sacred heart from March.
