Coolest News of 2009

25 Jan

I am sooo excited. This is really cool news. At least I think so. You should, too.

Do you remember me telling you about Katy and Elizabeth Hughes? Katy is a California teenager who also happens to be a blogger, budding artist and writer. She and her mother recently found themselves homeless. When I learned of their story and saw Katy’s artwork, I told her she should consider drawing avatars for people for money. I offered to be her first customer (I’ve always wanted one for my blog).

And she said yes!

Isn’t that the coolest thing ever? I sent her some pictures, described what I wanted, and she did it. She did a fabulous job, too. Go ahead, zoom in and check out the detail. Motorcycles aren’t easy to draw. And my frog is wearing gloves! Oh yeah, I didn’t send her a picture of a leather jacket, I just told her to put me in a biker jacket. It rocks.

The good news is, Katy and her Mom finally moved into an apartment a few days ago. So no more hotels and/or nights spent in their car. Things are definitely looking up.

If you want to read more about Katy, check out her blog, Destination Anywhere But Here.

  1. THANK YOU! I was beginning to think no one was ever going to see it! You’re my most faithful fan.

    I really do think this is the coolest thing. Not just because I got a custom-designed avatar, but because she did such a great job. (-:
