Oh my god guys, I love drawing Bill and Sam. I drew them a couple of times during the week (though most of my scribbles were of eventually-to-be-scanned civets >>), and then I decided that they should be all Pride-y, since they're my random overlooked sexuality characters.
Also, I went to the Mardi Gras and it was awesome, even if I do now feel like my left knee is hyperextending whenever I put weight on it. I had a Scotsman throw his undies at me, and I got wet in the rain, and I got confetti in my sleeves from the marriage rights float, and I heard that new Lady Gaga song for the third, fourth and fifth time that day (it was on twice at work :P), and I went "WOOOOOOO" a lot. Mum went nuts too, especially when Dayenu went by and Sivan came over and gave us a flag (I thought mum was going to take someone's eye out with it, she got so excited).
Dad was dad, you can't really expect more. It was good of him to come though, considering he likes noise and crowds even less than I do (I only survived the crowds because we snagged a spot right at the front, so I had air).
Next year AVEN, next year we should go in. It'd be brilliant.
I love you Bill you are adorable. And I'm sure you're really squishy to hug <3
I like the lightning bolt blaze thing that Sam has going. There are rumours that he bleaches the edges to keep it looking neat like that, but you didn't hear it from me. Also, his eyebrow ring seems to've swapped eyebrow, but I haven't drawn it on the right since that first picture, so oh well.
Colourrrrrrrrr :D Also, they look really young here. I have no idea how the two of them got to be friends, honestly. Bill's such a nice guy and Sam is a dick, and is exactly the sort of dick that I'd not want to be around. I'm pretty sure he's pointing out hot guys and girls to play that "but everyone likes someone, what do you think of them?" game, but Bill doesn't seem too bothered. I think Sam probably only acts like that because they're good enough friends for him to get away with it, and that in a pinch he'd fight for Bill's aceness. But then again maybe he's just pointing out a really cool float.
OVERTHINKING. Especially since these two started out as one-off scribbles in Animal Husbandry :P
Bill is wearing a variation on my favourite ace slogan shirt (I buggered the writing, but it says "unscrewed yet illuminating"), but Sam's shirt is all mine, and probably the cleverest thing I did all week >> MOR-some indeed. The only problem is that Sam is not a MOR (male oriented ram) because he's not a sheep, and he's also not strictly male oriented. I assume he had a ram boyfriend at some point and he pinched the shirt when they broke up.
