My blog is a platform of self-expression. A space where parts of me come together to form something that’s slowly forming itself. I wanted my avatar to represent that.
So I picked up a piece of paper and a black pen and just drew. Drew again and again and again. Picked up a third piece. Drew. And even though I’m in no way an artist, I loved the freedom of constructing my own representation.
Twenty or so sketches later, I pulled out my phone and took a picture. It was imperfect, personal, and uninhibited. But in many ways it was what my blog and I were, and I loved that.
