it's your oldest trick and your cheapest one

Posted on Posted in illustrated, journal, scarred for life

I present to you: Deb, the badass version, complete with scar:

Actually, as it turns out, not so badass. Just my luck, eh? Along comes a chance to acquire more of a "don't mess with me" look, and I can't even manage that.

This is two weeks (to the day) since the surgery, so I imagine the scar will only get paler and finer and more invisible as time goes on, which is a pretty amazing thought given it's actually nigh impossible to spot now. (The scar looks more noticeable in the photo than it does in real life, thanks to the flash.)

  1. More badass than you might reckon – you look like you could've been in a knife-fight and narrowly missed losing your eye. Perhaps some black gauntlets and enormous boots to go with the cutlass and eye patch… 🙂

  2. hee – if i wasn't in deadline hell, i could really dress it up before the scar fades to invisibility, couldn't i? the surgeon says it will be pink for at least six to twelve months, so i suppose i still have time!

  3. thankyou! now i have a new unexpected bonus to enjoy! i am going to practise my "i can keel you with my brain" look until it's perfection 😉
