Old drawing alert - I have this dated from 2009 apparently, haha.
Okay, so this one takes some explaining.
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!
