This is my friend Alex. She is quite the character, so I literally decided to..make her a character. I wanted to experiment with my illustration skills, so I jumped at the chance to start this.
Alex is my new friend from my improv comedy class. She is known around town for having a dry, intellectually-charged sense of humor, a pet hedgehog, and a plethora of smiley-face adorned clothing articles. She is blind in her left eye, and has refused to get cosmetic surgery in order to replace it. In an act of joyous defiance, she adopted an adorable dog named Brie, who suffers from the same condition as her, but is totally blind. They make an adorable pair.
