Arabella...



Well... I decided to get rid of the swimming cap covered in holes and replace it with this lovely blue one, I also gave her some piggy tail tufts and a flowing cape...

I am still working on who Arabella is, although one thing I do know is that she has a strong affinity with the sea... As kids my brother and I were always in and out of water, (I guess living on an Island at the bottom of the pacific ocean you can't help but always be near the sea) my father had all sorts of diving equipment and I used to love floating on top of the water with a mask and snorkel.  It was always so relaxing and quiet, just the amplified sound of my steady breathing... I couldn't imagine being angry under water.

She's just adorable. I love this character... one of your best I think! I'm always so fascinated by what will be next. I'd love to see you publish a book of your characters one day - you could even easily write it...(maybe you unknowingly already are...)
