“Let’s bring him back, together.” 

♡  Mercy76 Week ~ Day 4 ~ Reunion ♡

Sorry for the quality of the first pic! But it turns out my scanner isn’t fit for paper bigger than A4 format, so I had to improvise :x 
Anyways, I can picture Angie and Jackie’s reunion being heated at first, and very emotional (after all, she thought he was dead, and she’d probably be angry he didn’t let her know he had survived). 

My (1st) hero and activist this week is Marjane Satrapi, the author of Persepolis, Chicken with Plums, and the Voices (to name a few). Her comics and illustrations helped propel me into a similar world. I had never seen Iranian comic artists before. Reading Persepolis was like recuperating a part of myself. It helped me see the history of my family, of Iran, a different point of view than I had before.
Also she is fucking hilarious and an amazing activist! You can read her interview w Vogue here http://www.vogue.com/article/emma-watson-interviews-marjane-satrapi.
“The world is not divided between East and west. You are American, I am Iranian, we don’t know each other, but we talk and understand each other perfectly. The difference between you and your government is much bigger than the difference between you and me. And the difference between me and my government is much bigger than the difference between me and you. And our governments are very much the same.” <3

🍁⭐And here the last part of 🌿“Floraison”🍂, It was at first a challenge, because i never do backgrounds, big illustrations with perspective, indoors design etc… I wanted to add it to my portfolio too, last year. But the first one took me.. like more than one week only for the color, so I choose to take the time to learn, analyse, think etc… and now it’s finish, and I’m happy :) Thank’s again, for your kind words, it’s always motivating !🌟👍👏 and I called the character Yori yeah.
