I was getting sick of looking at my avatar! I thought it would be fun to try different looks and so much less risky than trying something different in real life. But now I am feeling a little self conscious anyway even though it is just an avatar. But it might as well really BE me since it is all YOU know of me! It was also a lot harder to create hair styles that didn’t look like cartoon wigs!
I went for good enough since my feed goes out in about an hour and this silly exercise is not worth killing myself over. Beside, it will be appearing so small that the details get lost anyway. My hysband just saw them and he asked if I was thinking of changing my hair in real life. I asked if the short blond one was ridiculous and he said no and then he said I looked like Chynna Phillips and then he said all three together look like the whole Wilson Phillips group. Funny!
I have taken a step back lately to examine the role I would like art and illustration to play here at Doodles and Jots. Over time, and once I have more time, I would like it to play an even bigger and more integral role in my content and maybe even become more consistent, that is after I do lots of experimenting. The great thing about a blog is that it can be a testing ground for a not-fully-baked-plan like this.
What has inspired this personal challenge? Find out next week!
The possibilities are so exciting! Part of this plan is to migrate my style to be EVEN looser to save time and also because it is what I like. I have decided to stop thinking about it and take some action. I decided it would be motivating and fun to turn my plan into a little independent study course for myself! Join in if you like. I think it could apply to more than just art and illustration styles like photography or maybe even writing.
