Wow. Wonder what the back story is. Helping kids with cancer? Newly divorced and getting a fresh start? Just looking for a change? Love your work Abigail!

Manelle said...

This is awesome. Great idea.

Elizabeth Rose Stanton said...

Yes! This is a great idea...and so nicely rendered! Has the "feel" of a Charles Dana Gibson. :)

Love this. It reminds me of me! Kind of like Michelle said...I totally chopped my hair when the split happened for that reason!

Melissa said...

This image is really powerful. Cutting off long hair like that is always a good symbol of restarting, of become a woman vs. girl... ect.

Also love the extremely simple composition. Anything more and it would have lost its impact.

OMG! This is hilarious...were you peering into my mirror last Thursday night! I did this very thing to myself and it is exactly the same cut. Creepy, but I absolutely adore this sketch for that very reason.
