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 concept work on the left and the final product on the right.
