One of the best artworks on the sub. Looks accurate af.

One critique though is the nose seems little too wide.

Thank you! Yeah I know, it's not as accurate as I wanted it to be in some areas, but the thing with ballpoint pens is that you can't go back once a decision is made.

You are wrong in so many ways my friend. I've made paintings since a kid and never traced a single one, because it takes all the fun out of it.

Thank you so much <3

This is plain awesome. I fell in love with the film because A) I’m a practicing Catholic who went to Catholic high school despite not coming from a rich family and so much of it hit so close to home, and B) I’m in a transition period in my life trying to transfer to a college across the country despite having a mom who would rather always keep me close to home. The way you chose to reinterpret the one-sheet as a saint’s stain glass window really resonates with me. What struck me about Lady Bird is that it is the first coming of age movie I’ve seen that is messy in a very real way, not like the exaggeratedly absurd messiness of movies like Mean Girls, Napoleon Dynamite, or even The Graduate. It’s just real, down to earth messiness. Growing up Catholic, I definitely learned so much about the saints, and from most third-hand accounts, their lives can feel like they were exempt from the messiness of life, like they had no other choice but to live perfect lives. Then I remember that all these saints were first and foremost human. Take Augustine for example. I mean the guy was a bishop and a super important philosopher, but before that he had a mistress and an illegitimate child, who were almost certainly still around and needing financial and emotional support, while he was known for being all holy and wise. That guy definitely had his fair share of messy drama in his life. We all have our coming of age story, but none of them will look like a romantic romp through Chicago, á la Ferris Bueller, or a Clueless-style “the one for me was right in front of me all along.” Our lives are going to be really fucking messy, like the lives of the saints and of Lady Bird. We’re all on this journey to find our purpose in life, and it’ll take a lot of trial and error to get there. But like Lady Bird finding her identity in her given name, Christine, and the saints being remembered by the Church for various heroic acts, we’ll make it if we take the risks life offers us. And maybe we’ll find ourselves with a cool crown in a stained glass window of our own, which will be in knowing we lived our lives to the fullest.

Sorry if this was a bit much, lol. I really loved Lady Bird and I really love your art :)

Thank you so much for the kind words, and for putting the time into them. I'm happy to hear the perspective from which you can see through the meanings and symbolism of the movie and my painting as well. I agree on all you said; in just the first 3 minutes I was hooked to the acting, and by the end it became my favorite movie of a year of great releases. I also relate to the quote: "We’re all on this journey to find our purpose in life, and it’ll take a lot of trial and error to get there."I mean, that's what the movie and everything really is about. Every little thing we do adds a little meaning to the universe. All the greatest things done by humans were once just projections in one's mind. But we first have to start with ourselves, and maybe if we stop the wars in our minds, we can stop the outside ones as well.'

Much love <3
