Drag Deck

The Drag Deck is a deck of fifty-two playing cards created to honor some of the many drag artists and performers who inspire me to be myself and feel comfortable in my own skin. The deck contains twelve unique, hand drawn face cards, each showcasing a different drag performer who I look up to. Drag is such a diverse art form, that I wanted to showcase different drag styles in the suits as well as in the face cards. While honoring these performers with my designs, I want this deck to also teach and inform the viewer about how much diversity there is in drag. There is no limit to what drag is, what drag can be, or who can do drag.
