Creepy Cute

I'm going to level with you. Creative as I may be, I can't draw.
Okay....if I really try I can come up with something better than a stick figure, but I've been surrounded by artists for most of my life, and I know it isn't a strength of mine.

But being a band geek/creative type has its perks, and I know my fair share of artists. One such artist is someone I went to high school with whom I've been a fan of for years. Her name is Anna Lisa, and she's got her own artsy blog here. (Most recently Anna Lisa started writing a webcomic called Minus the Laugh Track. It's pretty sweet if I do say so myself.)

Anna Lisa has this character she's been drawing forever called Emilin, and she's got purple hair, and is overall just super creepy cute. (She even has an older version of Emilin as a wicked tattoo)
So sometime after I started crocheting, I decided I wanted to crochet her. So I did. It's a project I've been working on here and there for a while, but she's finally done. Ta da!! I absolutely love how it turned out. How bout you?

(I know the colors are a bit  off, but I was trying to make her hair show up on camera the same color as it really is and the pics weren't really behaving.) 

I worked mainly from these two pictures of Anna Lisa's (the second picture is a doll she made. An illustration printed onto fabric I believe).
