"I hate the city. You can't see the stars." "That's why you have to swing." "Swing?" "Mhmm. If you swing high enough, you can go above the lights and piss yellow smog of the city." "And then I'd get to see the stars?" "And then you'd see the stars."
This was only going to be a sketch. And then it wasn't.
Kind of but not exactly. Not the part about swinging. But Diego and I ARE frustrated that we can't see the stars because of the city lights. A couple of nights ago the sky was so clear that we actually COULD see some stars! We went out and lay on the grass in the park like your typical corny star-gazing couple, and wished we could do it more often. That's where this comes from.
Honestly, there's no critiquing this. Drawings, paintings, all of it can be improved, but this is so lovely just the way it is. I LOVE that with my screen and the way it fits that if I scroll from the bottom up I see the smoggy city, and then just the glow of the city, the girl, and the night sky.
