Yesterday I took myself on a trip to the National Gallery. I had it in my head that I’d go and sketch from the paintings but I chickened out. So, I made these sketches from my photographs when I got home. It was just too busy there and I hate doing anything that might make me stand out in those situations. I really hope I get over that because I love the idea of going out on drawing trips!

Kitty Pryde - Playin’ in that Purple Drank

The Purple Dragon
2 oz Vodka
1 ½ oz Cranberry Juice
½ oz Blue Curaçao
½ oz Simple Syrup
1 ½ oz 7-up/Sprite
Mix Vodka, Cranberry Juice, Blue Curaçao, and Simple Syrup. Shake it like a polaroid picture. Add 7-up. Drink. Make again. Drink again. Get drunk. Enjoy.

This was a commission of the lovely Kitty Pryde. I didn’t have much for instructions beyond to make a sexy picture of her and to use Jenna Coleman as a facial reference, so I decided to go with the old ‘playing in a champagne glass’ theme. The commissioner liked it enough that it looks like it might become a mini-series. Also I made a drink to go with it, seen above. Named after Lockheed.

Picture completed in August of 2018.
