What up bro? by Wickfield What up bro? by Wickfield
Old drawing alert - I have this dated from 2009 apparently, haha.

Okay, so this one takes some explaining. :P One of my personal heroes is the Marquis de Lafayette, who participated in both the American and French Revolutions and who was essentially made of win (I mean if you are a French aristocrat who hates and is hated by French court, that's pretty cool, right?). His birthday was on September 6th and so I'm posting this in honor of his memory. Wish I'd had time to do a full painting but I didn't. :/

Here he is (he's the shorter one) with his best friend George Washington. Seriously, they were what we would now call bro. Joke of the picture is that George Washington historically hated to be hugged (he once yelled at Alexander Hamilton for slapping him on the back) and would only let his surrogate son Lafayette hug him. Lafayette, of course, was French, so there was lots of hugging, lol.

Happy Birthday Marie Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier!

I never though dear old Washington was so sensitive about receiving hugs lol.

Lafayette, just everything about him, one of the greatest men of his time! I think George and the Marquis may be a more "bromance" from all the other sorts of art I've seen haha.

Haha, maybe on Lafayette's side - he was a Frenchman after all! ;P

Ah...you have no idea how happy this made me! Thank you so much for uploading it, that is so awesome...especially to see that both my heroes are together. Seriously, that is so sweet-the whole "only letting Lafayette hug him" thing. I bet poor Alexander felt a little left out haha. This was cute and funny and I'm so glad you drew such a nice fanart of them :)

OMG, another Lafayette fan! We're the few and proud. ;)

I'll probably draw some more art of him soon, now that I've improved a bit.
