The Fault in Our Stars by Folkloor The Fault in Our Stars by Folkloor
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is a novel that has been on the hitlists for a long time now. Every single person has seen it at least once on a shelf, and because of its beautifully simple design probably glanced into it for a bit too. Go read it. I cannot emphasize this enough. There are some books you would like to keep to yourself, and then there are those you feel are shattering the world around you and it will not heal until every single person you know has read it. TFIOS is the latter. I cannot wait for the movie to come out, hoping it will do it justice. It is one of my favorite stories, and I wish it was a tale I could come back to over and over again, but I can't. It is both beautiful and heartwrenching and it requires time to heal a little before you can come back to it. All I can do to express my immense admiration for this book and linger with it a little longer is through my art, so here is a fanart of Hazel Grace Lancaster, star that will not go out.

I hope you enjoy and DFTBA!

EDIT: I changed the mainfile since two versions have been going around for a while now - my first version, and a second version in which I had altered a few things that had been annoying me. Apparently, while editing it I also deleted an important color layer, causing me to see two color-versions circulating on tumblr. I've re-edited it to its original color-version as much as possible and apologise to those who have bought a print of the second color-version, I noticed too late that it had mistakes too! Hope this solves the issue.

hi Laurence, het was super gaaf om je te ontmoeten op comic con Amsterdam. Deze poster heeft een mooi plekje op mijn kast naast mn bureau gekregen. Ik heb m op instagram geplaatst, maar weet niet hoe ik jou hierop kan vinden, ik wil je namelijk graag all credit geven. Echt nog veel succes wat ik weet is dat ik jou werk echt supergaaf vind.
Liefs Ilse, een meisje uit zeeland waarvoor TFIOS het dichstbijzijnde tot een bijbel is

My friend died because of a heart condition, on the last pic I got from him he also had tubes in his nose to breath and stuff.

This is absolutely breathtaking. This piece captures Hazel Grace perfectly, serious. I'm amazed. She's so on point. Not to the movie, but to the book. Geez, this is my favorite piece of TFiOS that I've seen so far.
Thank you.

Keep up the astonishing work.

Folkloor Featured By Owner May 16, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Ahhh I'm so happy you say that, I have such a hard time visualising faces when I'm reading books, so it was quite an effort to get her right! Actually, I feel it's still not quite how she truly looked like. She described herself as having "ridiculously fat chipmunk cheeks", and I only reread it after I finished this piece and saw that so mmmm :/ Oh well, as long as you enjoy the piece and see Hazel in it, I'm happy! : D

This is absolutely gorgeous!  Beautifully painted, and furthermore, she looks exactly as she does in my head here, which is brilliantly spooky.  Also, I love how rich the tone of her hair is with those purple hues, and overall the use of colour is perfect. :) Brilliant painting!

She's so beautiful... I love her face and the colours.
And I feel the same about the book, everyone should read it - boy, girl, teenager, adult. It's so beautiful and heartbreaking and real.
