In preparation for the video book trailer for “You’d Better Not Die or I’ll Kill You,” the animators at Expanded Books have been busily creating images for the “characters” in the video. First up: me.
Here’s what I looked like the day of the shoot.
And here’s what I’ll look like as a cartoon.
- Her hair is yellow-blonde, like Betty in the old “Archie” comics. (I always preferred her to the snotty Veronica.)
- She’s wearing red shoes – ballet flats instead of the grungy black flip-flops I was actually wearing that day.
- She’s curvier than I am.
- She doesn’t have a single wrinkle and looks 1,000 years younger than I do.
Yes, her head is shaped like a melon, but you can’t have everything.
