Sharon Needles live at Menergy

Sharon Needles, the biggest star to have emerged from RuPaul's Drag Race was booked to perform at Menergy. I couldn't wait to start designing the poster. Much to my dismay, I was sent the over-used promo photo from the TV show by her agent which has been all over the internet for about a year. I wasn't sure I was allowed to mess about with this image, but I did anyway and it was approved.

I decided to use The Seal of Lucifer from the Grimorium Verum to break up her face as one of her catchphrases is 'Hail Satan!'.


I also created little icons for web and print use:

Some weeks after my flyer had made it's way round the internet via Tumblr, someone pointed this out to me... by illustrator Tom Christophersen. (Tom uploaded it onto his website and has never acknowledged that I re-created the image digitally). I hear that Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

Menergeddon (Menergy Apocalypse)

The end of the 5,125-year Mayan Long Calendar had triggered predictions of a catastrophic end for mankind but fortunately it didn't happen.
