Phew! Today is another absurdly busy day, and I'm having some trouble thinking about what to post. In lieu of actual thoughts, here's a funny thing I drew last year (PS I may or may not be wearing my giant fuzzy robe right at this moment...).
Sometimes, when I clearly have too much to do, I like to "waste"
"time" by drawing silly stuff. Today as I sat down to get some work
done, I thought "I wonder what I would look like as a paper doll?" And
thus, the day was wasted...
UPDATE: I dressed the writer doll in the outfits. Why? Because it's cuter? (and also because there was more day to waste...)
start with your basic, everyday writer. Sports bra, American Apparel
shorts--this is pretty much what I look like 90% of the time (minus the
hair down, usually it's up in a bun, but I couldn't figure out how to
draw it without it looking weird). But of course, you can't have a naked
writer doll (because sometimes the doll needs to sign for UPS packages
or see people not her husband). So, to clothing!
And what if the doll needs to actually go out of the house?
here's where things got tricky. I figured, only three outfits? That's
not enough! But guys, I literally could not think of anything else that I
wore regularly (and even the ballet outfit is a stretch). This made me
think of a couple things: 1) I need to get out of the house more, 2)
that black sports bra gets a lot of play...
But since every now and then I do actually, like, socialize (I saw Cabin in the Woods last weekend! Sooo good...), I included an extra bonus "going out" outfit:
what writer doll would be complete without some fun accessories?! You
can pretend to write down plot lines or get some research done on
Wikipedia! Don't forget to pour your writer doll a cup of hot tea! And
if your writer doll gets lonely, there's a little plant companion to
Have fun with your writer doll!
