Our New Friend

{ Your New Friend }

As the indie biz class that I am taking as been rolling along, I have been ruminating over how to really create a unique identity for my Etsy shop. One idea that has really triggered my fancy is the idea of creating a character to accompany the shop, aka an illustrated character to embody everything I plan on carrying in the shop! I'd also love to create some friends for her that have their own unique styles and favorite things too.

So, here my is first quick sketch of the lovely lady who will lead our Etsy shop out into the world!
Sketch for my new Etsy shop identity.
the image is pretty sketchy since i had to take a photo of it using my macbook camera. But you get the general idea. She is wearing a sweet little outfit featuring one of her favorite necklaces, the mini book necklace you can find in my etsy shop! :)

Do you like her?
I am wondering if I should just call her Moorea or come up with a new name for her. What would you name this independent 20 something? I need your help! She is a little shy but her style is bold and her inner strength is powerful!

No matter what you call her, I am so going to enjoy seeing her face; she's adorable and chic.

Love it! I think you should call her Moorea-it's unique and feminine. :)

Me too! This class is helping me expand my visions into realities and I couldn't be more excited! I adore this girl and I can't wait to see her friends...I am on the same tip with a character theme...I'm going with the things I naturally doodle all the time, I don't know why I didn't think of that before, but you know how it is. ;) I think it would be fabulous if her name was Moorea, it really is a very beautiful and unique name that, for obvious and non obvious reasons, says "you". Although when I fist saw her I named her "Stella".
