The Queen and the Conquistador by Samael1103 The Queen and the Conquistador by Samael1103
Drawing made for "L'Armoire aux Epices",the same literacy fanzine as always [link]

It is based from a text published in this fanzine,about sweet romance and exotic (and torrid)adventures of a spanish soldier with the Queen of a legendary precolombian island!
Before reading the text,I already pictured them exchanging sweet words in the middle of ancient ruins!

The image makes me think of some fantastic spin on Hernán Cortés and La Malinche.

Reality sometimes is not up to romantization but thought you might like this anyway:
