guess who can't think of good titles ever! Anyway this is for NerdyJones / H-edonista, one of many gifts I'm trying to do for your upcoming birthday! I'm hoping to get as many done as possible, lolol - I KNOW JONES SAID NOT TO SPOIL HER BUT I'M A STUBBORN HOE >8U

anyway i wanted to draw our two OTPs that are famous neighbours of one another with a very complex and fascinating dynamic, loads of history, seen each other through the best and the worst, shared the love, kicked each other's asses and will have a bond to last an eternity!! These ships are also very special to us because Jones is Mexican and I am a New Zealander and encouraged each other's ships lots?? and sharing what the dynamics have in common and so on, with USMX as the Northern Hemisphere ship and OZNZ as the Southern Hemisphere ship... and share many qualities!!

just some small details:
- I drew Kiri's casual outfit, which has the logo for the famous Tui beer involved, the "Yeah right" quote is iconic and an example of our regular sarcasm, she has her jandals and mmm, there's some of her tatts showing <333
- I drew my personal take on APH Australia, who I call Kyle - he's not as white as canon Australia, has darker hair with a little more red, his eyes are more a sea-green colour?? He shows the scar on his face and he also has stubble and a tattoo on his wrist (it's literally a kangaroo with the stars of the aussie flag because STRAYA) - btw his outfit is just a random one i chucked on him lol
- I drew Alfred with freckles, as inspired by kamillyanna's take on APH America I LOVE THE FRECKLES OK. and he's dressed like a dad because that's my fave kind of alfred lol
- and I drew the beautiful Raquel in one of her alternative outfits - I think I just got a shit ton better at drawing her?? I hope, her hair was SO MUCH FUN and i think i made it nicer

I'm saving my birthday message for the day itself with a different gift, mmm<333 i won't make my gf a million percent flustered just yet >8^))))

anywho i think this is the best thing i've drawn, partially because i've improved with a lot of stuffs but just because i had a lot of fun experimenting with my art process. So this drawing is very special to me and I hope Jones will love it!!

America / Australia - Himaruya
New Zealand OC - me me me
Mexico OC - the babe Jones <3333
