My Heroes / 1

Here is my new heroine! HYPATIA is her name. Never heard about her until some days ago while watching the movie Agora of the Spanish-Chilean director Amenábar. With those kind of movies I always make a little jump inside because of the wonderfull dresses in those times. From the Greek until the Victorians! Still dreaming of wearing one someday!
But my Hypatia...she was like the first astronomer and notable woman in mathematics! There is so much to know about her...and in the end killed by some men who couldn't resist that women knew more then them! May'be I have to start to make some more portraits of my other heroines! Many of them were killed by awfull men...but I also have some huge heroes! Worth trying to draw I guess...:) Don't know if Hypatia liked cats, but in my world all my heroes had a cat :)

URG! Men are always like this; that's why we all will die someday in a nuclear war or sth like this - because they want to boast about their strength etc. Is so annoying! And so sad :(

I also like the dresses and outfits you've mentioned. They always look so magical! Hope there will come time time when they'll become fashionable again and there will be a possibility to wear them everyday :3

Heb je ooit de film 'pride & prejudice' gezien? De jurken.... ach Kathy ... de JURKEN!!! ;D

Prachtige illustratie trouwens... en I love de uitspraak "in my world all my heroes had a cat" !!

Lo dicho es una promesa!!! Deberás seguir con tus heroinas, (y algún heroe de los que tienes así no nos sentimos relegados)Los gatos seguramente estarán agradecidos de descansar sobre tan heroicas faldas
y acariciados por tan delicadas manos, aunque a los heroes no los veo con un gato sobre sus piernas, más vale un perro, ja ja!!
