Online and Social Media Avatar

I was approached by Alison Cromie of Cromie Creative Consultants ( to see if I would be interested in creating an illustrated avatar for her. She thought it would be an fun way to stand out from all of the headshot photos and add a bit more personality to her online and social media presence. I thought it was a great idea!

I anchored the likeness on her hair style and color, and also her cat-eye glasses. She updates her hair and glasses color from time to time, so having the ability to update the avatar illustration easily was a nice bonus if possible. Since I work digitally, it was fairly easy to put the hair and glasses colors on separate layers, which made updates fairly simple.
