I've always wondered why Simon had a bow & arrows strapped to his back on the cover of CoFA, coz he's only used them once in City of Bones, when he shot Abbadon with Alec's arrow after Alec passed out. Lol. Anyway, I made him with glasses in this coz I feel like it.

OHHHHH I love this!
There is not enough good art with Simon in it, and he's my favorite character so this made my day. They both look fabulous, especially Simon, and I love that you drew him with his glasses because yeah, even though he quits wearing them I always picture him wearing them anyway.
Your style here is great and I really can't say how much I love this picture.
You're welcome! I know, I do too- glasses are not just what he has, they're who he is.Plus we spend the whole first book imagining him wearing them, and for those of us who adore his character, it's too hard to suddenly in book two imagine him NOT the way we'd spent so long picturing him. It'd be like if Jace dyed his hair blue. (Okay maybe not that extreme but y'know...) So yeah, Simon in glasses forever!!
