Life in the Shadow of Giants by Techta Life in the Shadow of Giants by Techta
Was just doodling at 1:00 AM and this came out of my sleepless stupor. I have to say it is the cutest picture of John Adams I've ever done. >.>

So yeah thats Jefferson in the background and Adams in the front. You could take the script literally or metaphorically. I intended it to portray how Adams knew even in his lifetime that he would be little remembered for the part he played in history. Then the literal fact that he is shorter than Jefferson, and Washington for that matter. But that was not the intended meaning lol.

Was listening to Jesus Christ Superstar "Gethsemane" when i drew this.

So true....the fact that he is literally smaller and little remembered in history is kind of sad.
