Art of the Day: The Beginning
Tools: Watercolor and color pencil on watercolor paper // Edited on PSCS5
Oh my, I had so much fun working on this painting. Another one of my favorite scenes in Eleanor and Park.
And yes, that’s a cameo appearance by eleven-year-olds Simon and Baz from Fangirl. I’ve been itching to draw them and thought they fit well in this scene. I’m not going to explain what they’re doing here. I also don’t need to tell you how I was swooning myself when I was drawing them, but there you go. SIMON AND BAZ NEED THEIR OWN BOOK. PLEASE.
The question isn’t:
Why are 11-year-old Simon and Baz holding hands on Eleanor and Park’s school bus?
The question is:
WHY AREN’T THEY ALWAYS SITTING THERE?
*writes handholding Simon/Baz babies into current novel*
*feels great about it*
(I’m very fond of you, Lauren Baldo. This is adorable.)
