Since it’s not only Valentine’s Day, but also the opening week of Fifty Shades Darker in theaters, I thought I would create an illo inspired by both!

In the books, as well as the movies, the shower proves to be a rather popular destination for Christian and Ana. 😉 There were moments of tenderness, sadness, revelations and confessions as well as passion. But I thought I would attempt to illustrate a more simple and sweet moment between the two of them.

Perhaps before celebrating Valentine’s Day with a romantic evening out, they both decide on a shower before getting ready. Initially, there is nothing really out of the ordinary, surprisingly. Just your average shower (meaning there are no shenanigans…yet.)

But as the steam begins to build, Christian gets an idea to get their Valentine’s festivities off to a sweet start. Reaching past an unknowing Ana, he slowly and carefully begins to draw on the steamy shower glass with his fingertip, while tenderly giving her a kiss on the head. Now wondering what he is up to, she turns just in time to see Christian finishing one simple and perfect heart.

Always deeply touched when Christian surprises her with such affectionate gestures, I can only imagine that what happens next will cause them to become a bit late getting ready and making their restaurant reservations on time. 😉

Happy Valentine’s Day!
