Last week, there was a mix-up and I missed an appointment to get my bangs trimmed (that is my fringe for OG English speakers). I've needed a bang trim since before I went to NYC in fact, and instead of drawing myself as I actually look, I have continued to draw myself with cute short bangs. I'm sorry. But there is a reason.
Now, I am cute. I have no doubt about it, but when my bangs get to a certain length, it causes some sort of illusion wherein I look like a frumpy cross dressing cave man.
Perhaps it is the hair in my eyes that causes this visual disturbance, but it can only be combated by wearing more makeup than I usually have the patience to wear, and since I don't draw any realistic features on my cartoon representation, it is easier to just create the same effect by making my bangs the right length.
Believe me, I did it for you... and also for me... because I'm vain and don't want to be hassled by scientists thinking they've found a missing link.
OH, and my Coco Llama, the actual piece that was in the museum in NYC is now for sale on eBay. Share it with everyone you know. I still need to pay for that trip!
