I miss Sant Jordi celebrations! 3 years ago I was strolling through the
markets full of books and flowers in Barcelona, where they celebrate
Sant Jordi, where the boys give roses to the girls and the girls give
books to the boys and you can buy books for a lower price throughout
town on the markets and there are so many flowers and it’s just so NICE.
According to the legend, Sant Jordi (the Catalan Saint) slayed a dragon
to save a princess and then gave her a rose that had sprouted from the
dragon’s blood. Thought Mr. Gaiman’s quote quite fitting.
BTW I’m a
master of procrastination. I would have had to write on some work for
uni today but instead I thought “mmhm let’s draw”. Big kick in the ass
for me… Dammit. This is also the reason why I post this pic in such a
very strange (for me) colour palette, I just don’t have time to think
some more on it. Maybe I’ll change it once I actually have time for that.
