If I were a boy

Have booked trip to Paris for me and Vanja. Am planning to go see Jean Fouquet, top pic, but perhaps there are other things a 10-year old would rather see.
Jean, however, is always an inspiration to me, with his razor sharp renderings of people and places. If I were a man/boy I would perhaps skip the contemporary bearded look and set myself apart by mimicking Fouquet's St Stephen, with his bleeding skull and monk hair do. I'd might even carry a rock and a book, who knows? After all, I wore a fez all through 9th grade.

Ps. I think he'd pronouce it faw-kay, but feel free to call him fuck-it, if it makes it any easier for you to remember this wonderful artist.
