—Nay if even in the house of Hades the dead forget their dead, yet will I even there be mindful of my dear comrade.
Line from Homer’s The Iliad, added at Thomas Jefferson’s request on the grave of his wife, Martha Jefferson.
- soooooooooo... an old Thomas and his ghosts/memories.
in my head, this scene happens when he is writing his biography and this specific line about Martha's death: "[In 1782] I lost the cherished companion of my life, in whose affections, unabated on both sides I had lived the last ten years in unchequered happiness."
okay... THIS IS CREEPY AS HELL I'M SORRY! but it was so much fun to do
****DON'T REPOST ON TUMBLR****
note: as i received messages because of my previous drawing with these twi saying: "but... Martha is dead. what are you gonna draw with these two now?!", let me just say that i don't draw chronologically (she can be dead AND live again after) so i will keep drawing them lineart: [link]
and according to the artist's description, doing what you want is ok :3 I still like saying NejixTenTen is a thing even though Neji's dead as dead can get, very well done on the pic as always. I love your art :3
To know someone so well to share this type of bond is something so desirable...it is so touching to see how much he cared for her. This is gorgeous and haunting but with such a warm feeling as well. Thank you for telling me about her gravestone, I love learning tidbits about these people that are not often well known.
And I agree, art is a funny thing-you can continue to draw a character regardless of the status of their soul. I mean, I am a little surprised you even got that question because people in the fan art community continue to draw characters that have died and everyone seems to understand. I am so thrilled you will continue to draw them, please don't stop
I love that his eyebrows are still ginger. It made my night. X) So cute n sad n feels n I never thought I'd ship a dead couple from 200 years ago, but considering it's real life verses some thing like anime, manga, or characters from books, I'm gonna say ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love this couple thanks to your wonderful depictions of them.
