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.
So many incredible performances for Pansy’s birthday!
Dalaa is a fantastic dancer; she was in the first half of the fab evening on Gieza’s Poke House.
If it were not for lockdown, I might never have gotten a chance to draw beauties like Dalaa. Getting across town to Monster Ronson’s is a huge effect for me, and one I am usually only able to make a couple times a year.
So I am very glad to be able to see every single Poke House and House of Presents show, for this period of time.
And see new-to-the-Pokehouse performers like the marvelous, gorgeous Katana Six!
Always a joy to see and draw Alexander Cameltoe.
Alexander’s show for Pansy’s birthday started in their workshop, which is loaded with tool goodness. Intergalactic Trash Prince Alexander answered the Batphone and then proceeded to a gorgeous art-laden altar.
Note, I did not draw Pansy on her actual birthday.
She was dressed as an adorable baby, and I do not like children unless they are my friends’ children. So this is a drawing of Pansy from another show, when she was dressed as an adorable diner waitress bunny!
Pansy has been doing a fantasticseries on her Insta stories called Pansy’s Pantry, where she demonstrates the baking of fabulous treats, with recipe, and provides education and tips for activism. Now the Pantry is coming to IRL life for a hot summer day!
You can pre-order her legendary key lime pie for pick-up here!
And always, I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting Berlin’s queer, intersectional drag performers while I work safely at home.
