So the first one is a self-portrait and I really can't see myself at the moment having a self portrait without my cat. I really love her and wish she was here with me right now. We have had tons of nice in-house adventures together and outdoor adventures. I'm dressed in an attire that can work in mild weather, but not the super hot or super cold. It's because Chicago has such fluctuation in weather that I could be in one or the other at any point of the week. Oh and what else~ I was quite inspired by the way Johan Thornqvist (which I randomly found on tumblr) does his pieces by taking a photo, manipulating it to an extent where cartoon and reality can exist together, and create a whole new piece altogether! It's really neat and I think I'll try more of it next time!
Before I forget too~ I went with a mix of "kawaii" and superflat style (basically asian) because heh-heh, I'm pretty asian myself. So I found it working well with a self-portrait :)
