“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you.”
|I started with her face and hair. I sketched out|
how I wanted her face to be (different than the
original photograph). I wanted her eyes perhaps
a bit brighter and her smile a bit upturned. I
absolutely wanted to keep her intensity.
|I added splashes of color to the background and|
began defining what will be her dress or
whatever she will be wearing.
|I added some writing. A quote of Frida's and|
some of my own thoughts.
