Thrilled to have my illustration selected as “Winning Werk of Art” on Rupaul’s Drag Race. I’ve made it a personal project to illustrate each queen as she was eliminated from the show until a winner was crowned. You can see the complete collection on my tumblr. http://jlbarry.tumblr.com/post/86688329356/rupauls-drag-race-season-6-top-4-and-the-winner http://jlbarry.tumblr.com/post/84856035481/first-ten-queens-to-sashay-away-in-season-6-of
I made this little drawing for my friend John. He has a very cool and fearless cat named Nigel. They live on the top floor of a building in Long Island City and Nigel paces the edge of the balcony without a worry! I guess he would be a member of Skyclan if he was a Warrior.
The illustration was done on a trading card size piece of Bristol. You can buy them in packages but I usually cut my own. When I give them as gifts, I put the cards in those plastic sleeves and attach some magnets on the back so they can be put on the refrigerator.
I took some photos of Nigel last time we visited, so you can see the reference.
And here’s the view from John’s terrace. Imagine Nigel patroling the guard rail!
