Actress Lupita Nyong’o’s (@lupitanyongo) #FanArtFriday series started on a whim. “I think the first fan art I saw was an illustration of me in my red cape after the Golden Globes in 2014,” says Lupita, seen here with a piece by artist Donald Robertson (@drawbertson) which was inspired by the “Queen of Katwe” actress’s colorful red carpet looks. As a thank you, Lupita began highlighting a new piece of art on her account each week. “There are paintings. There are mosaics. There are pencil drawings. I thought it was a really cool way just to showcase artists. And it adds that special touch to a moment in my life, as well.”

When I was ten Mrs. Wakely, a family friend would put on a bathing suit just like this and lay out on the end of our dock. My brother and I would stand and stare at the giant line her huge boobs made. We had never seen anything like it. I remember my mom would scream “boys come inside” “now!” from the cottage kitchen window. She knew what we were doing. Here’s to the memory of Mrs. Wakley’s massive cleavage. #excusemeiarted
I did this painting of the Royal Gaurd when Little London was know as Great Britain. Such cray events this past few days. I just watched the latest Kanye West video featuring Donald Trump in bed nude. I recommend you buy art and put it up and never leave the house. World is going bonkers.
It Bag! Happy International Selfie Day.
I thought it would be cool to sell a piece of my art here and donate the moolah to one of the grief Counseling charities recently set up in Orlando. It's a small gesture in the wake of such a terrible tragedy. Spreading Love anyway we can! Donald
