Finally, Reel Girl is here! Her mission: to liberate the imaginations of children and grown-ups everywhere.
This blog’s new banner was drawn by the artist, Cynthia Rodgers, AKA Theamat. I first saw her work on the internet when I came across the fabulous “If I don’t get pants, nobody gets pants.”
Theamat created Reel Girl’s face from these images of my daughters. Before taking the pics, I asked them to imagine they were up against something powerful; it was up to them to save the world.
In creating Reel Girl, Theamat used Lucy’s intense eyes,
Alice’s speck of a smile,
and Rose’s wild curls.
