Meet Violet, A Paper Doll of my College Years

Last year, I posted two of my childhood drawings. One was of Ellie and the other was of Riven.

Here is another paper doll from years ago. When I was college in Oregon, my parents were having the boat refitted up in Washington. For spring break one year, I went with my best-friend up to visit them. It was a really fun, though at times a little crazy, trip and was the first time I had ever ridden the Greyhound Bus anywhere. While I was traveling, I drew and colored this paper doll using a set of permanent markers in lots of different colors.

I don’t remember much about her and her clothing certainly doesn’t resemble what I was wearing in those days. I spent my entire college life in a hooded sweatshirt, jeans and flip-flops, regardless of weather. Still, when I stumbled across her in my files, I thought she would be fun to share.

Also, last note, the drawing ends at midnight central time tonight. Enter if you like. 🙂


  1. Do I spy corduroy bell bottoms? 😉 Oh and the tee layered over a long sleeve STRIPED shirt – the memories *sniffle* Can’t believe you did this while travelling on a bus – steady hands!

  2. Hey, I totally wore cord bellbottoms. 🙂

    I don’t know if I drew this while riding on the bus, I might have penciled it then… It was certainly during that trip though.
