Magical BEINGS: Portraits of Artists, Friends, + Pioneers: Caitlyn Jenner, Anna Wintour, Beyonce

3 for the Front Row. The Lion Queens. Meeeow! All hail the Queens I would love in the front row for my New York Fashion Week show! Caitlyn Jenner, Anna Wintour, and Beyonce make a nice trio of Kittens for the Catwalk! The inspiration began with Anna and her iconic, yogic Eagle pose she curls into when in the front row. As prime eagle eye of the fashion industry, her pose is perfection!  Beside her famous dark glasses, and Egyptian coif, she repeatedly sports simple golden lizard kitten heels.

First, cameras and tweets preened on about dresses or lack thereof flaunted on the red carpets of all the award shows, and next, futurist muses flashed their goods at major art and design fairs like ICFF, Frieze, and Salone.

Colonies are collapsing and dying due to the pesticides farmers and even home gardeners use. They are our wake-up call to stop poisoning our Earth and ourselves. They inspired this drawing, I did it in homage, drawing...
