Illustration Friday - 'Caged'

This week's Illustration Friday topic is 'Caged' - for me, its an opportunity to experiment with watercolour and a bit of photoshop.
The obvious spung to mind of a caged bird ...and then I remembered 'The Birdcage' a film based on the play 'La Cage aux Folles' ...basically, in case you are unfamiliar with it, its about a gay couple - a manager of a transvestite cabaret club and the star of the fore-mentioned club - who pretend to be straight in order to impress the extremely conservative parents of the fiancee of the son of the cabaret club manager (Phew!)...needless to say its a farce and hilariously funny too. In my view, pretending to be something or someone you are not is like being caged. So, here's my tribute to the fabulous 'The Birdcage'
