les miserables



latching onto characters that have “i’m already dead at the start of this story” written on their foreheads like that sign can’t stop me because i can’t read

“This group is remarkable, although it has vanished in the invisible depths which are behind us. At the point of this drama which we have now attained, it will not be labor lost, perhaps, to throw a ray of light upon these heads, before the reader watches them enter the shadows of a tragic adventure.“

My probably most unpopular Les Miserables opinion

…is also my probably most unpopular Star Wars opinion.

It isssss: Revenge of the Sith-era Hayden Christensen would have made an absolutely amazing Enjolras.

“Enjolras was a charming young man, who was capable of being terrible. He was angelically handsome. He was a savage Antinous. One would have said, to see the pensive thoughtfulness of his glance, that he had already, in some previous state of existence, traversed the revolutionary apocalypse. He possessed the tradition of it as though he had been a witness. He was acquainted with all the minute details of the great affair. A pontifical and warlike nature, a singular thing in a youth. He was an officiating priest and a man of war; from the immediate point of view, a soldier of the democracy; above the contemporary movement, the priest of the ideal. His eyes were deep, his lids a little red, his lower lip was thick and easily became disdainful, his brow was lofty. A great deal of brow in a face is like a great deal of horizon in a view. Like certain young men at the beginning of this century and the end of the last, who became illustrious at an early age, he was endowed with excessive youth, and was as rosy as a young girl, although subject to hours of pallor. Already a man, he still seemed a child. His two and twenty years appeared to be but seventeen; he was serious, it did not seem as though he were aware there was on earth a thing called woman. He had but one passion—the right; but one thought—to overthrow the obstacle.”

He’s probably too old now though. :(


Les Miserables + Zombies: A Whole New Reason for a Barricade

Happy Halloween! Enjolras takes on the National Guard zombies while little zombie Gavroche climbs up the barricade below, meanwhile the dying Eponine shows off her zombie bite to Marius and Grantaire fights off the recently turned Bahorel with a wine bottle.

So happy to finally be posting this illustration after keeping the sketch in my drafts for 7 years! I wanted so badly to finish this illustration but at the time I didn’t feel skilled enough to complete it. Now I’ve done it and I’m so happy and relieved I finally got here.
