My art: Deirdre

This is Deirdre. She is 29 and writes grants for a state university. She likes the steampunk band Abney Park and going to wine tastings with her girlfriend, Arabelle.

Deirdre is an imaginary customer that I made up during a personal branding exercise for The Boss of You.

Just like with Arabelle, I had problems with her arm (holding the phone). I redrew it about six times and then I gave up. I also had difficulty settling on an eye shape, because her personality isn’t as strong in my mind as my other branding-related characters – I try to reflect personality in appearance, and it’s hard to do that when there’s no personality to work with! I’m sure she’ll assert herself at some point.
