The Trio

Marquis de Lafayette. Alexander Hamilton. John Laurens.

I just got this super mega fully-colored encyclopedia about the uniforms in the American Rev and holy bajeezus it's so helpful and just 10/10.

Friends on Tumblr have inspired me to draw John, who've I'm ashamed to admit I've never done before (I also hardly ever do more than one person at a time -ahem lazy ahem-) so it all added up to be a really fun/challenging/uberly researched project..Whew!

Now if only American History textbooks included art such this...every middle school and high school student would love it. Their expressions are perfect, especially Hamiltons, the perpetual pondering thinker, and Laurens gazing at the viewer, and Lafayette ready for battle. The movement and flow throughout the illustration is marvelous. Bravo!!

"The gay trio to which Hamilton and Laurens belonged was made complete by La Fayette. On the whole, there was something about them rather suggestive of the three famous heroes of Dumas, although the period of the American Revolution was less romantic than that of the Musketeers. It is true that Hamilton was urged to kidnap the English General Clinton, who insecurely held New York, but refused upon the score that the latter, because of his incompetence, could do more harm if he were suffered to remain where he was than if captured.

There is a note of romance in their friendship, quite unusual even in those days, and La Fayette, especially during his early sojourn in this country, was on the closest terms with Hamilton."

I love Lafayette's distinct wig and crooked nose, and that Hamilton's wearing his fancy artillery hat(and I love his pointy nose). I love that Laurens is staring at the viewer, it's almost like he knows he wont survive the war. 
And, damn, look at Alexander's intense expression! There is a man ready to gain battlefield glory. 
Lafayette, Hamilton, and Laurens would no doubt approve of your mad skills.
