How I came to this idea was by thinking about elements of my personality. My Granddad used to describe me as a character and thats what led me to do the sketch that you can see as my header on this blog. I thought about other elements and one thing I tend to do it over think, about a lot of things. As that comes across as negative to a lot of people I thought about things I like and traced some sketches of them.
You can see that there is a flower, a biscuit, some shoes, a cat, a necklace, cup of tea and a doughnut.
These are things that are often in my day (well maybe not the doughnut, thats more a of weekly thing....).
