I decided that I wanted a logo that people could look at and say, hey, I know that signature. It’s completely different from the ‘image’ I wanted to be associated with me- which was the blue hair and red glasses. I still kept it though. Changed the red to pink because I wear my pink glasses more often now than the red in fear that my newly bought red glasses would break on me, again.
I hadn’t had the image of blue hair and red glasses in a while anyway. Maybe a year since I really promoted that image.
It was a random drawing, in the beginning, something I had to make to give a ‘face’ to my art when I wasn’t confident in what I looked like. Rather, during a time I didn’t quite like the person I saw. So, I created an image I kind of liked.
I had always imagined having blue hair- someday. Therefore, I gave myself blue hair. I loved the red glasses I got while in art school. It was a part of me that helped hide the worst things I didn’t like about myself. I hid behind those red glasses.
Things have changed since.
I’ve learned to love myself, appreciate who I am rather than what I’m not.
The long hair comes and goes just as the short hair but I really like the art that comes out when I draw my hair short. So, I stuck with that. Plus, I just got my hair chopped recently. Fitting.
I still went for the blue hair though because I like the color. The yellow flowers are a quick addition that I felt it needed as an avatar.
