The beginnings of a portrait of Laura 2.0 (no relation to my Laura).


I worked at a Chinese restaurant for some years during college. The owners were then (and are still today) amazing people and my coworkers had good comradery. Starting a band was one of the things we’d talked about, jokingly.

This portrait was part of the fake promotional material I’d started for our band. There were several Lauras that worked at the restaurant, my Laura being one of them. But seriously, this isn’t my Laura.

Stylistically I like some of shapes I was trying to do with the hair, particularly around the ear and along the next. I think we were going to cast Laura 2.0 on bass or lead guitar and she was going to be mysterious (so the hat is pulled down).
