The So-Called "Queen of Mean"

Just finished this illustration for the forthcoming issue of Royal Flush. For those of you unfamiliar with the subject, it's Lisa Lampanelli, comedy's "Queen of Mean." Thing is, she isn't. She slings insult jokes and ethnic and gay slurs around freely, but unlike Don Rickles, she projects a warm, "it's all in fun" vibe. So, I figured she has her cake and eats it, too. Or ginger bread men. Rude, politically-incorrect, gingerbread men.

Tiny thumbnail sketch to get the idea down.

Final art. Duh.

Thanks, Brian. But there's no need for that kind of fucking language.

Sorry, I didn't mean to fucking offend anyone.

Greg: I don't mind. Maybe run a credit, though?
