Reading Is Fundamental With "RuPaul's Drag Race" Tarot Cards

From Ursula Major to Major Arcana!

Because tarot reading is what?

Mexican artist Juanjo Cristiani (who goes by the name enjoy.mycake online) has been giving RuPaul's Drag Race queens a tarot transformation in a new series of illustrations based on the iconic deck of mystical cards.

"Since I was a little kid I used to watch Disney movies, and I became fascinated with the witch characters rather than the princesses, that is how my love for mysticism, symbolism, witchcraft, and occultism began," Cristiani tells NewNowNext.

He ended up studying graphic design in school, but years later fell in love with RuPaul's Drag Race. "Subsequently, art history and my obsession with the occultism led me to emulate the artwork of tarot cards with Drag Race queens," explains the artist.

Cristiani originally planned on only giving the 22 Major Arcana cards (the classic tarot deck consists of 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana) a drag makeover, but when his project proved popular online he decided to tackle the full deck—which he says will eventually be available in physical form.

Check out Cristiani's illustrations below which shows Bob the Drag Queen as the Emperor, Alaska as the Hermit, and Katya as the Fool—how fitting—along with other Drag Race legends.
