It's Like Magic! by Following-The-Rabbit It's Like Magic! by Following-The-Rabbit
The spell you got on me
It's like magic
Got me feeling like I'm fallin' in love
Got me feeling like I'll never give up, oh
Got me feeling like I'll never give up on you

The rumor come out: Does Following-The-Rabbit is gay?
I'd rather not specify. Let's keep it simple; I'm part of the LGBTQ+ community. Thus, since I was invited to do so via note, I figured I may as well participate in the pride month event. 
At first, I wasn't sure what to do. So, I first did a little research on the pride colors and the meanings associated with them. dA seems to have simplified them, so I held a poll for the elaborated meanings associated with the pride flag colors. While life and sexuality (red and pink, respectively), magic and serenity (Blue and turquoise) were winning when I first started conceptualization.

A little history: The pride flag used to have eight colors, those being pink, red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, and violet. Pink and turquoise, representing sexuality, and magic/art were removed, and their meanings were given to red and blue respectively. So, when the themes for blue were winning the poll, I ruminated over them for a while, and how they relate to my experiences in the LGBTQ+ community.
Magic, art, harmony, and serenity... Magic resonated with me the most, and I quickly associated it with the magic of performance and makeup, which quickly reminded me of my experiences in drag. Long story short, I do drag at Pride events and conventions, and it makes me genuinely happy. It's not something I'm very public about, but it's a part of my identity, and has become almost therapeutic for me. The magic of makeup, performance art, the harmony of well-used music and coordinated outfits, and the feeling of serenity I get when I'm playing a character... It just sort of worked for me. Guess that makes this kind of a personal drawing about inner peace. Oh no.
So, in addition to using my drag king character, Richard Tater, being himself and partaking in my usual practice of taking selfies in drag, I incorporated elements of the drag flag, which thankfully meshed well with the given colors.
That's the gist of how I came to making what I did. Now, I haven't slept in 42 hours. I'm going to continue to stay awake, and cry or something.
Oh, before I screw off, have a happy pride month. Don't be afraid to be who you are. Don't let anyone dull your shine. And most importantly, you betta werk.

Commissions Info (+ Updates)Payment
Paypal. Always paypal. Ask me for my email via note.
To get put on my list, I ask for a small percentage of the full commission's price, normally $3 - $5 USD, depending on how much the piece costs. I ask for 50% before I start the sketch, and the rest of the payment can be sent before I start coloring. This way I don't have to worry about holding onto someone's money while I work on other commissions.
All prices are in USD, but if you'd like me to convert the price to a different currency, I'd be more than happy to.
