Journey Log 6 Kylee Keenan

The reason for why I chose to draw a picture of the famous drag queen Divine is because of her large role in the making of the character of Ursula in The Little Mermaid. The dramatic hair, makeup, and body style of Divine are all traits Ursula maintains as well. Divine was known for her dramatic appearance in addition to her extremely sexual persona. In Disney’s film, Ursula also carries herself in an exaggerated, sensual way. Due to the recent research on Ursula and the abundant role that drag plays in the creation of the character, I chose to draw an image of Divine, allowing the reader to visually understand the close resemblance between Divine the drag queen and Ursula the sea witch.
