friend of the abc

Here, have another Marius-missing-his-friends picture. That’s sad every time. But drawing skills also get better every time, so I guess it’s fine. That was a long, long time since my first picture, that also was “Empty chairs and empty tables” related. How fast the time passes. I was younger and more naive back then, and my art was… well, I’m glad that it’d improved so much. I hope it’ll be better every time and my progress will go faster. That’s a sentimental talk, but what can I say, sometimes you draw Marius so much you become one=)

Enjolras

Enjolras was a charming young man, who was capable of being terrible. He was angelically handsome. He was Antinous wild…He possessed the tradition of it as though he had been a witness…He had but one passion—the right; but one thought—to overthrow the obstacle…He hardly saw the roses, he ignored spring, he did not hear the carolling of the birds. He was severe in his enjoyments. He chastely dropped his eyes before everything which was not the Republic. He was the marble lover of liberty. His speech was harshly inspired, and had the thrill of a hymn. He was subject to unexpected outbursts of soul. 

On the 1st day of the Barricade I gave you… 1 Courfeyrac. Yes, I am so generous. Exams were kind of a hard battle to win and I’m barely alive right now. All of my deadlines for arts moved because of that. Courfeyrac, as you remember, loves cats, and they kinda-sorta think he’s okay to hand out with. And I have a new paper for watercolor - it’s yellow. 

For my birthday Courfeyrac gave me… 8 kitties. He loves cats. A lot. I wanted you to know that =) I wanted to draw something sweet and innocent, on the opposite to the epic and sad pictures I usually do with the friends of the ABC.  And also thank you for congratulations.
