Alice for Kirsten

My sister is no longer a teenager! What is the world coming to?!?!

That means in two years, I *gulp* will no longer be a teenager...

Anyway, here's her birthday present from me. She and I loved Alice in Wonderland when we were little (and still do now that I have the DVD)

She pops into my head

This is a character that's been in my head for..... man, must be years now. She's gone through many changes in appearance, personality, surroundings etc., but still keeps a consistent sort of essence (that right now I can't put into words). She's probably going to go through more changes before I can pin her down... but part of me doesn't really want to do that. I guess she's a free spirit!

Anyway, I've been thinking about her a lot recently (she always seems to pop into my head during holidays). I've got a rough idea of what I'm going to do with her now, with other characters and such. I plan on scanning in other sketches, but above is something I already had on the computer. In my mind, she isn't usually as sweet as she looks above (it was just something simple to sketch, ink and colour).

Maybe I'll share some of my ideas about her on this blog, for what it's worth. I'm caught between eagerness and reluctance of showing her to the world. I don't know what's worse, my ideas and drawing being cruelly criticised, or staying in obscurity.

Geez, I write too much about nothing!

Check the new do

Got a new haircut yesterday - it's pretty short!

I was kinda scared to show my dad, as he thinks long hair is better, but he said it was lovely. Now he's just referring to me as "Baldy". Fathers.....

Apologies for poor quality of pictures (webcam), but it doesn't really matter as I look terrible in pictures anyway! These two aren't too bad.
