I’m so excited to have finished this piece. Since I’ve started doing drag and my full-time job, I haven’t sat down to do as much work, so drawings have been a little slow-going. But when I started this piece, the pattern of hearts inspired a dress I wore for a show, so my art practice and drag performances really are interrelated. I feel the drawing captures the emotional weight, balance, and imbalance I’ve been experiencing these past couple of months.
