Call to Illustrators

[image via Condé Nast Archive/CORBIS]

Confession time: See that lovely lady in my profile picture? Well, it's not me. It's actually an actress who I happen to share a name with. (If you have now figured out my last name, congrats. Just please don't write it in the comments!)

In any case, before I get a cease and desist letter, I think I better change my profile picture. I would like to keep the blog semi-anonymous and to keep the image consistent, so an illustration of the current photo would be ideal.

I know that there are some very talented illustrators out there in blogger land, and if any of you would like to share your work here by creating something for me, I would be forever in your debt. All I can offer is some free publicity and a link in my blog roll, but you'll also get my undying love!

And if no one responds, well, I guess I'll have to find someone to take a moody, fashionable photo of me.


  1. That's so funny, I always wondered if that was you on the pic! I know a very talented lady - Monique of My Glamourology blog as featured in this weeks post. She also designs some amazing chunky woven chain bracelets too!


  2. Hi Marissa,

  3. So glad you found me! And now I found you!!! Love your blog doll!!! I'd LOVE to do a sketch for you! I'll email you tonight!

  4. Thanks, Giselle! I can't access your profile, or else I'd comment on your blog, but I hope you see this. And I hope you enjoyed Boston!

  5. I'd still like to see a moody, fashionable photo of you nonetheless! (:


  6. Hey Love, I think you should definitely show your face! I was so confused when I met you because I thought you were this other Marissa! Haha! I can only draw cats, so if you want a kitty version of yourself, let me know!


  7. I always thought you bore a resmblance to her......! That was 'coz I thought it was you in the snap! Hope you find a good illustrator

  8. I would love tohelp you out but I'm an embarrassingly bad artist! I would like to see a moody, fashionable photo though : )

  9. Thanks for all your suggestions, but it looks like you won't be seeing a moody, fashionable photo of me just yet. The amazing Monique has offered to make an illustration! Thank you, thank you, thank you! And, Sami, I've gotta see these cat drawings of yours. ;)

  10. Really gorgeous pic!
    Hope you find an illustrator, darling!
