WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

WIJW is off to Madrid, Ibiza, and Majorca!

James playing the matador - Illustration by Scott McBee

As you might have guessed from our banner tonight, WIJW is off on another adventure! We’re quite excited, and we’ll soon be bringing you a bit of the rich culture and beauty of Madrid as well as a taste of the jet set hippie-deluxe-60’s-70’s vibe of Ibiza and Majorca—oh, and you can be sure I’ll be outfitted for the part!

Do not fret while we’re gone though, we’ll be sending you snippets from our expedition along the way—so drop in on us! We’ll be doing a more considered write-up as usual upon our return later this month.

In the meantime, we’re setting the stage with a brilliant illustration by our top notch artist and illustrator, Scott McBee, in a portrayal of me as the matador. Of course we’re specifically paying tribute to the bravura of the matador’s fashion sense, (we are animal lovers as you know). Who else but a matador would have the confidence to wear such over the top couture? We’re also hoping that tonight’s costume might inspire a few of our slightly more conservative gentlemen readers to unleash their own sartorial splendor!

Hasta La Proxima Vez!

  15. Great Scott McBee drawing of you, and love his whimsical paintings/drawings on his web site. He has a great way of working with line and color, when designing his art works. Would have loved seeing a bull running around in the background, of you as a Matador.
