Valencia I by toerning Valencia I by toerning
O Valencia- one of my fave Decemberists songs, and one of my favourite romeo and juliet retellings. This is part one--when they meet. I love the idea of their story taking place during the 40's gangster era. 40's fashion might be my favourite of all---Why is it so hard to find?!

You like my work ethic!? BEST COMPLIMENT EVER HAHAHA thanks very much.

(You might not be able to tell but I'm actually not being sarcastic- it's always nice to have one's work appreciated but it's also ice to hear people are smelling what you're working really really hard at, under the surface.)

This is wonderful! I love how they have this... I don't know, this contained passion, or something. Or at least that's what I get out of the picture; you can tell there's so much emotion locked inside!

I listened to the song after seeing your two pieces based on it. Loved it and the style you chose really fits the song I think. Great!

oh yay! i love the decemberists and this is pretty much my favorite song by them! you did an awesome job depicting the charaacters. I also really like your style. You ever see Sean Gordan Murphy's work? this piece reminds me of his, though not nearly as gritty. Keep up the good work though!
