See what happens when you accept the invitation from some weird stranger that visits your blog and asking you to sign up for his little contest?
THIS kind of stuff happens!
"BB", over at Some Pink Flowers, was selected back in the first part of January to receive a free caricature drawn by me. (I was celebrating one year of blogging) After some thought, "BB" sent me a list of some of the things that she likes. She told me that likes to travel and so living out an "overstuffed roll-on suitcase" is routine for her. Also, she lives in sunny Florida and she likes her t-shirts and shorts.
"BB" also has a thing for multi-colored Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers. I guess everybody has to have a thing, and brightly colored tennis shoes are hers. My thing is getting my shoes on the right feet in the morning. What's your thing?
One of the challenges about illustrating "BB" is that she is in the habit of covering a portion of her face whenever she posts a photo of herself. Yes, I know what you're thinking - just like Earl Hindman, a.k.a. Wilson, in Home Improvement. Only, I think his was an ugly issue.
As best as I can tell that's not "BB's" problem. It's more of an, "I don't want to show too much of my face on the inter-net" issue. So, the challenge for me was to capture enough of her to get a likeness. Fortunately for me she does have a wonderful crop of curly hair which distinguishes her from your average blogger.
I think the illustration turned out well. Of course I had to add some pink flowers because... A. The name of her blog is Some Pink Flowers, and B. She sent me this photo of a pink flower when she was first e-mailing me - just for me. Awhhhh!!!
Thank you "BB" (must stand for Baby Blues) for joining my little contest and thank you for my flower. You're a funny, fun lady, and I hope that you get a lot of fun out of your cartoon.
