Glam Rapids

(Senior Emphasis)

For my Senior Project, I wanted to continue my trend of Drag Queens. Instead of focusing on Queens who have been involved in RuPaul's Drag Race (Television Show), I wanted my art to reflect Queens who were local to my area (Grand Rapids, MI). I first contacted 4 local Queens and asked for their permission to illustrate them. Once I had their approval I began making costume concepts based on their aesthetic and personal preference. I have included the original concept work and the final product for each queen below. The concept art was done first, then the mood boards were placed together, then the final image was created.
