What a joy to draw MisSa Blue again!
MisSa Blue 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 Blue and Kiki DeVille for an incredible joyful show!
And thanks so much to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting performers and releasing the art free to all, while I work safely at home.
