I recently worked with local Seattle Illustrator (and good friend,) Kendal Tull Esterbrook on creating a portrait of me to use for promotional materials… Twitter background, online profiles, etc. She was a joy to work with and the end result ended up exceeding my expectations! Her style and attention to detail helped produce this image that I have been SO EXCITED to show off!
What really excited me about what Kendal put together is she took some of the aspects of my “look” really distinguish me — my bangs, my cat-eye glasses, my black clothes, my wristband and used them to turn me into a character! It boils me down to an iconic image that communicates who I am in a more easily recognizable way that a photograph (which can often be deceiving.) How cool is that? Turning myself into a character proved itself to be more than just a novelty yesterday when I had a coffee shop meeting with a new client. She looked my way and immediately exclaimed “Liz! You look exactly like your Twitter icon, it’s spot on!”
