For her thesis my talented classmate Sunny Choi drew some scenes from Anne of Green Gables. She asked me to model for her book cover image. She asked me to gaze out of a sunny window, with a smile.
Funny story: I had pinkeye in my other eye at the time. Actually, that's not really funny, it's just gross. Sorry, I don't know why I told you that.
Here is Sunny's Anne of Green Gables book cover. I believe that it is a mix of acrylic paint and colored pencils. I like how she put her own spin on the photo reference.
