Some modern day Hamilton. Credit to @astroidbelt for the Angelica Take a Break text post, X, I laughed for like five minutes straight after reading it. I wanted to draw Hamilton with a man bun and cute outfits because theirs way too much pain and suffering in act two
phillip hamilton things, for people who haven't or can't see the show.
-during his rap in take a break, he starts out nervous and then kid gets WAY IN TO IT, bending his knees and flexing his arms and yelling. alex hugs him and looks so proud and phillip is so pleased with himself. it’s precious.
-during reynolds pamphlet, jefferson, madison, and burr take him up front, surround him, and show him the paper. they point and say “at his own house? at his own house? damn.” out loud to him and oh my god his face, he’s shattered. you can physically see his father get taken down a peg in his eyes. I can’t even describe it. it was heartbreaking.
- I always pictured his argument with george eaker happening up close, like he pushed past a bunch of people and was up his face. but no, eaker is up on the balcony and in true hamilton fashion, phillip is making a scene and shouting at him from below. the actors in the “play” even stop to watch, and you’re like damn this really is alex’s son.
-when he’s telling his dad about the duel, alex is standing with his arms folded (and using his “dad” voice) and phillip looks so sheepish but also defiant and it reminds me so much of “meet me inside.”
-“stay alive reprise.” tore. my. heart. out. which I knew it would but jesus. no mercy. I was full on sobbing. (eliza screams at the end of it and I can’t even describe that. it’s so horrible and your breath catches in your throat and she sounds so worn down and destroyed. she’s held it together throughout all the shit alex put her through but in that moment it all comes crashing down and you can hear so much pain. It’s heartbreaking and beautiful. the acting is amazing.)
More Hamilton drawings!!! I hope you guys aren’t sick of me yet,
(This is going to be a really long post, I apologize)
Here are a few request’s that I finished, if you don’t see yours, then don’t worry, I’m working on it, and the sketches should be finished by the weeks end. I’m still accepting requests so keep them coming,
on another note, the fact that, the king himself, Lin Manuel Miranda, re-blogged my Hamilton drawings literally makes my life complete! when I saw it there was so much screaming and jumping around in my bedroom, my family thought that I was crazy.
Hamilton just means so much to me, and I haven’t been this inspired in an extremely long time. I’m starting to think about turning some of these drawings into Fan Animations, I would love to animate a few scenes from Satisfied or The World Was Wide Enough, so let me know if you’re interested.
Also I haven’t had the privilege of seeing Hamilton, so I’m sorry for any inaccuracy that there might be. All of my artwork is based off of Google images, promo videos from Broadway.com and the confines of my own head as I imagine whats going on, when I listen to the OBC over and over again.
Hamiltrash brothers and sisters, I’m calling out all of you because I need all
the help I can get.
I live too
far away (South America), I don’t have any chances to get to watch Hamilton
(one of my very favorites) and also, I don’t have the Money.
started the #MyShotToGetToHamilton project. I did what Alexander did to get out
of his island and pursue his dreams of a new future to be a new man: I told my

out, you may like it or even feel related to it at some points. I don’t have
the best microphone, a beat box, a professional studio and the sound is not the
But I do
have a dream, and I also had a pencil and a piece of paper and my imagination.
And if there’s one thing Hamilton has taught me is that you must hold on to
your dreams and what you want.
If you can help
me sending the video to Lin-Manuel, Pippa, Leslie, Alex Lacamoire, Anthony,
Jasmine, Renee, Oak, Daveed, Chris, Hamilton Musical, any of the dancers or
anyone related to the cast and crew and sharing this video on your Hamilton
media and accounts with the hashtag #MyShotToGetToHamilton it would mean the
world to me.
goal is to get @linmanuel to watch it, so please, if you want to help me or liked the video and the project, please reblog this post.
Lin, if you find this later, I’m free all August until College begins on September 2nd.
for your support and help, I’ll be forever grateful with you.
A bunch of Hamilton Afterlife doodles, because hearitwhispering’s notes in the tags really made me want to do more head cannons of what happens at the end of the show.
Also I’m going to start working on a Satisfied Fan Animation, I’m not going to lie though, this will take a long time for me to finish but i’ll keep you updated every step of the way and you can expect storyboards and concept art soon.
(And if anyone who’s seen the show, can give me information on how the song is played out, how Renée Elise Goldsberry acts throughout the scene, or anything in general that stuck with them during the performance that would be fantastic!)
