Be Brave



Eleanor Roosevelt said "Do one thing every day that scares you." Well I drew my girl today. I have had her in my mind, and there is a lot more i want to do with her but you must start somewhere. She didn't turn out ruining my minds eye image, which is a very good thing. That alone makes me happy.

I also figured out a teeny bit in Adobe Illustrator to get her as a vector image. Or at least I think she is a vector image. hee hee

I need to give her a name. Clearly she represents me, but do you have any ideas for names?

Leave a comment with a name for her and I will draw names for a goodie package Monday evening.

Hi via Maddie's blog...I chose you randomly.
Um, let me see.

She looks like a....

Violet.
or alternatively,
Harlow.

Two of my fave names. She looks like a hip chick!

Hi, I've been lurking round here for a while. Just wanted to say I LOVE your drawing!
I think I'd want to call her Daisy. There's something simple, strong and powerful about daisies (or at least I think so!)

I think she looks like her name could be Jazz, or Mae, or even Gemma.... I like odd names, I admit it. OK, Mae is not so odd...

I think she is Kat, short for Katherine which is what her parents named her but she didnĀ“t end up all frilly so she prefers Kat.

Oh, she's wonderful! I'll have to think about her name. And you are learning Illustrator? Cool! I really want to learn that program, too. There's so much that can be done with Illustrator, isn't there?
