Though done for an entirely separate reason I felt showcasing this drawing was reasonably appropriate. Today is the celebration of the storming of France's Bastille prison, which helped mark the beginning of the French Revolution - removing the monarchy and giving way to ideas such as inalienable rights and citizenship.
In reality this image is actually a representation of Charles Stillman's 1840 escape from a jailhouse in Mexico. But perhaps for today one act of rebellion can lend itself to the great memory of another.
Happy Bastille Day everyone,
