blue rose and fire by spryte-21 blue rose and fire by spryte-21
i drew this about a month ago, it was a mini english project, where we had to do an "artistic illustration" of any of the symbols in one of the books we read, The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams, however you interpret the word 'artistic', whether it might be poetry or a drawing or whatever... the symbols were a blue rose (well Blue Roses really, someone gave Laura that nickname), a fire escape, a photo of the father, a unicorn, and a glass menagerie, which is a collection of little glass figurines (hence the title XD). so i drew this.. ^^; i guess basically in this one, 'Blue Rose' is right there in the 'fire' but she cant 'escape' and she cant do anything about it either.. meh.. >.>; the fire is the tension between Laura's brother Tom and their mother Amanda, thats what i thought the fire escape symbolized in the story (well its really a play), which was a means of escape for Tom, since he did end up 'using the fire escape' in the end.. bah, go read it yourself.. XD

as a side note, i think this is the fastest thing i ever drew. it took me about 4 or 5 hours, and i did it over a timespan of two days, and knowing how long it takes me to draw a complete piece, you are currenly beholding a real live miracle.
XD

oh, and i got a little bored toward the end, so i just did the bricks in the wall the lazy way... >.>
