So I restarted my idea for June on day 4 and I went back and redid my first four pieces after the fact. Turns out, I restarted my series last June, too! Here is more about that;
Originally my idea was to create white drawings on black paper. I was pretty confident in my decision. I found the black pad of paper, bought a couple new white colored pencils and a new white gel pen and packed those in my bag to take on our trip.
And then I made the work;
...and then I heard a little
voice in my head say;
And when 'Mama Ru'
speaks, you listen.
If you know me, then you know I love some drag queens- and I LOVE watching RuPaul's Drag Race. The costumes, the choreography, the makeup- I love it, every single sequin and 8-count. It is such an art form, and I really appreciate what they do. And I support Pride month.
So this month to my favorite queens from the show, starting from season one through season eleven. I am depicting each of the season winners along with some of my personal favorites. Towards the end of the month I will be including some of the 'All Star' winners and I think we all know who the final piece of the month will be;
Here are the first nine queens;
NOTE: I just realized I skipped over the season 2 winner! Sheesh! No shade, I promise- just an honest mistake. Looks like I will have an extra piece in there this month!!
Will try to get that one added tomorrow or later this week...don't want the order to get too cray. -JLG
