Brendan, Louis's VA, has had rough stuff happen lately, and me being me I feel like a useless dunderhead sitting on the other side of the world, twiddling my thumbs and offering virtual hugs.

They feel even more insincere given how I'm still trying to work out this hug-thing without being completely awkward and gangly in reality.

So in the midst of the hundred-and-one things I need to do, I doodled this quick thing to hopefully put a smile on his face. 'Tis Louis channeling Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and Brendan as Jimmy Page, since Led Zep is (one of?) his favorite bands, and Jimmy's a bit of an idol for him. Louis does not actually sound like Plant, which is probably a very good thing or I think my ovaries would explode.

I hate drawing guitars, could you tell? Bet you couldn't ...

I love that you made this, as when I first saw Louis he reminded me of Plant! 
Great stuff, I feel your pain on drawing guitars.

Louis is inspired by glam rock icons such as Adam Ant and David Bowie, so that's not a complete surprise.

And hugging does actually take practise. I got most of my family in to it when I started to learn to hug.

YAY! Louis skin! We can see more of it! *coughs* Anyways, I was curious about it, that's all.

You did a nice thing for Brendan. Poor guy, hope everything works out better for him soon.

Very cool, and you drew Brendan/Page's Gibson EDS-1275 (I'm a guitar nerd, okay?) very well. It's a particularly tricky guitar to get right. :)

Oh wow. Yes, this is awesome. I think all our ovaries would explode if Louis sounded like Plant. XD
