I like the style of the artwork -- very appealing in that 90s indie comic kind of way, by way of Finder and Strangers in Paradise. I'll have to go through and read the archives later. Thanks for the link!

(That comic is currently in my house. Alas, it is NOT VERY GOOD.)

I have some of his queens on my bedroom wall (clockwise from top: Chad Michaels, Latrice Royale, Alexis Mateo)! No better inspiration for getting dressed in the morning.

Chad Sell's RPDR drawings are the bomb - I love his Jinkx-as-Little-Edie. He's also doing some interesting group recaps on his main site this season.

I didn't really know any of his other work, though, so thanks for this!

We keep his makeup-in-the-dark Alaska Thunderfuck hanging facing out of our living room windows. We love seeing her, and ideally it may scare away an unsuspecting intruder.

This year's Drag Race is not as good, sadly, but this art makes up for it.

Gah, that link puts a disturbing image in my brain of Manta Man meeting Ika Musume.

BP, aw, really? I actually thought it's been better than S5 so far... a lot of legit talented people and less bullshit drama. Well, except for one particular queen who shall remain namelaganja

(And even she's talented, she's just also phenomenally annoying.)

Well, at least Gia is out. I like poisonous-with-a-wink if you're funny and smart (like Bianca) but Gia was neither — and just plain mean, to boot.

Amen! Good riddance to that child.

This is fantastic. I'm considering buying and framing a set of these for my apartment. Bianca Del Rio is one of my favorites, though, and I'm not yet sold on any of her pics, so I may need to wait until later in the season to round out the set. I definitely want one of Jinx doing the Snatch Game.

Unfortunately, Alaska Thunderfuck can't be on EVERY season.

Even if you don't like Lasagna, this image of her is really gorgeous.

Chad also has given me dap for my artwork and called me a hero today and is generally really cool and thoughtful on top of everything else.

I have the Jinkx Snatch Game print, but I still need that absolutely ICONIC Alaska.

My favorite Gia moment was in the Scream Queens episode, when she complained about the other team's skit being filmed in black and white, the producer asked her if she thought it was because it was set in the 60s, and, after some thought, she said "...No."


I shall miss seeing her hoist by her own petard, that was satisfying.

Yeah, that look was correct, louche mustachio. And it's a great drawing.

I like this season of Drag Race. I am unexpectedly kind of impressed by Adore. She really turned it out for the Snatch Game.

Yeah, oh my god, Adore is rocking my world - I love her interactions with Bianca. And that Jim Halpert side-eye during Untucked!

Neat. Louche moustachio will want to know that Ms. Delore is aware.
