I wish I had a dog so I could know what I look like.
I so often enjoy looking behind the camera at the world.
For an upcoming project, I was asked to make a kid portrait of myself.
A selfie? A sketchie? A skelphie?
I approached it the same way I approach a new character.
Sketch a zillion bundle of possibles,
then hone in on who that character is.
So.. who am I?
What do I look like anyway?
What do I feel like?
What would I look like if I combined me now
with some of my favorite things from childhood?
Books. Overalls. Sunshine. Rain.
This is the girl I settled on. Bookish. Hopeful. Happy.
Not afraid to get messy.
Here's to finding your happy self this week, my friends.
