What a joy to draw MisSa again!
MisSa is such a charismatic performer. And she brought in some wonderful folks for her birthday livestream!
A marvelous touch from hostess Kiki DeVille was that after each performance, she would check in with the performer about how they were doing.
It was so cool to see the performer shake off their stage persona, catch their breath, and tell us how things are for them.
MisSa did go-go dancing during the intermission. Good heavens, she can dance!
Ruby Tuesday is a fabulous drag creature, and gave a sizzling show.
You would not believe how resourceful she was in utilizing living room furniture!
I have been drawing burlesque performers for fifteen years, but this was the first time I drew Jo “Boobs” Weldon, the Headmistress!
I had such fun drawing this legendary pillar of modern burly-q, Mistress of the New York School of Burlesque.
Thanks so much to MisSa and Kiki DeVille for an incredible joyful show!
I am so grateful to my Patrons on Patreon, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting performers and releasing the art free to all, while I work safely at home.
You can see previous drawings of MisSa performing at Berlin Burlesque Week here, and co-hosting the Berlin Burlesque Week Performer’s Panel on Cultural Appropriation here. Her linktree for all info is here!
Updated Feb 18, 2021: Finally finished this drawing of Cleopantha!
It took so long to finish this drawing of Cleopantha ! Sometimes my finishing a drawing stalls because of a silly thing – in this case, I couldn’t figure out how to draw the hallway Cleopantha was dancing in. Then I suddenly realized yesterday, it’s a good likeness of a very beautiful performer, no one will care about the hallway!
