Lost Treasure

My husband and I are packing up our lives and moving 8 miles down the freeway. In the midst of all this packing, we found a hard drive that we haven't been using for a while. On that hard drive were all my digital designs from when I was in school. I was really in to drawing in Illustrator way back when. One night I had an image of this face in my head. I got out of bed to sketch it. She was very simple, but expressive. Later, I used the face as an inspiration to design a cd cover for a rock band called Gatos Guapos. The band failed and broke up. (The original cd cover design was a little bit edgier than the design below. ) I again played around with this image to make it more "cute" and less "rock" ......she still looks a little bit angry. But that was the face! I couldn't change the original!

I love her! I wouldn't say angry, I would say sassy. I want it for over my bed.
