Below are four Drag Race Artists whose talent you have to check out!
Artist: April Bawolek is an Art Instructor from Chicago, Illinois.
Method: By Hand.
“Every Queen is a piece of Art in themselves. They recreate memorable moments or looks, it’s their goal each time. Their visions are so inspiring.”
“Serving Fish” by April Bawolek.
“Art has always been natural to me. When I’m not creating, I feel a big chunk of me is missing. There’s nothing more satisfying than finishing a piece.”
“Glamorous Sharon Needles” by April Bawolek.
“Each season I always have a favorite, but no one tops Miss Alyssa Edwards for me.”
“Orange you Glad to be my Valentine?” by April Bawolek.
Artist: Carlos Garcia Naharro is a Tattoo Artist from Madrid, Spain.
Method: By Hand.
“When I was a kid I’d draw big, strong girls with long legs, big curves, and huge lips. In a way, I’ve been drawing drag queens without knowing about them. I love the power they exude and the many different women they channel.”
“UNHhhh” by Carlos Garcia Naharro
“DragCon must be an explosion of art and expression.”
“Violet Chachki Potrait” by Carlos Garcia Naharro
“I love portrait making. Not trying to duplicate what I see, but to express what I see in [the queens] or the idea that stays in my mind from them.”
“Ongina Portrait” by Carlos Garcia Naharro
Artist: Cheyne Gallarde is an Illustrator from Honolulu, Hawaii.
Method: By Hand & Digitally.
“Because of the fast turnaround, I create my art digitally. But, sometimes I create original watercolor paintings or tattoo art.”
“Comic Book AJA” by Cheyne Gallarde
“I’m a super fan of Drag Race! I can quote every episode!”
“Trixie Mattel Collage” by Cheyne Gallarde.
“The Queens inspire me. They design such amazing and creative looks. They push me to be creative in drawing.”
“Kim Chi” by Cheyne Gallarde.
Artist: RaPal Dark Res is an Animator from The Netherlands
Method: Digital & Animation
“RaPal Dark Res started out as a joke between my friend and I. We used to binge watch terribly drawn cartoons and we loved them. I love RuPaul’s Drag Race and now I find myself animating a terribly drawn duck version of RuPaul until 2AM.”
“The Judges Panel” by RaPal Dark Res.
“Drag Race will always be one of the things that keeps me going. People think there is an entire team around my YouTube Channel, but it’s just me. I make my Art to connect with other fans of Drag Race to see their reactions. They understand my silly humor.”
“Drag Race Season Nine Cast” by RaPal Dark Res.
“I’m coming to meet everyone in this big RaPal Mascot Costume next year at Drag Con. Well, I keep telling myself that- it just hasn’t happened yet!”
“RuPaul” by RaPal Dark Res.
