Okay, so, this was fun, right?

The whole “drawing drag queens for months on end” thing?

Yeah, it’s been pretty cool.

Also, the reunion thing was nice–I dug seeing Ru perform in a live setting. She had a bit more verve and sparkle than usual, and it was delightful to watch her play off the audience.

And it was rewarding to see Phi Phi called out for her shenanigans, without any redemptive closure like we’ve seen in the past (remember how gracious Tyra was in her reunion episode?)

Willam looked real good this week, though I don’t think she got kicked off just for conjugal visits with the hubby. What do you think?

Oh, and yeah, Latrice is just the best.

And so! Sharon won! I love you, Sharon, though couldn’t you have shared that crown with Chad? Because he was looking as luminous as ever.

To the right, you’ll see a glimpse of Sharon on the cover of 40 Queens, a forthcoming collection of my 40 best pieces of Drag Race art from the fourth season! It’s now available to preorder for $6, or combine it with my collection from the third season, 30 Queens, for just $10!

And below, check out the full portrait of the reigning champion: the spooky! the beautiful! SHARON NEEDLES!

As ever, my prints of Sharon, Chad, and Latrice are available at my online print shop for just $5!

It’s seriously been such a delight to illustrate the Drag Race for another season! Thanks for sharing in the weekly delights of each episode, and thanks for your support! You’re such fierce queens, all of you!
