VIRAGO ART CHALLENGE: DAY 13
27 July 1830 is the first day of the July Revolution, which makes today the first day of real barricading, hurrah! On the 26 July the king’s infamous July Ordinances were published, limiting freedom of the press, among other indignities, and the people of Paris took to the streets in crowds the next day. Fighting broke out late in the day on the rue St-Honoré in front of the Palais-Royal and only intensified during the next two days.
Enjolras has got her gun, Combeferre has got his surgical instruments, and they’re ready for barricading, woo!
Some details (in tumblr’s crappy resize resolution):
Sigh, I swear one day I’m gonna find a way around that evil tumblr automatic resize…After all these July drawings are done, I promise I’ll make a post with just details of these drawings, because the god is in the details, as they say. :)
