help me decide





I just made this image (the violet bus) for the home page of my website.

Last Friday I posted a call for help in deciding between these two illustrations. Thanks to all of you for your comments here and on facebook—what a gigantic help! Thanks to your input, I decided to go with the bus image, with a few modifications, and repositioned the little girl (also modified) so that she is well-represented in my portfolio. Change is a good thing, I guess.

Have a look: violetlemay.com.

Oh, I really love this new image!! Like you, however, I also really love the existing homepage image. Perhaps you could use the bus image on the homepage, and add the existing image of the little girl reading to your portfolio? I think the bus image is something fun and different, and I definitely feel that the little girl is portfolio-worthy!

I love both but I vote for the bus!

This illustration is so great! I think it would be a very nice change. The little girl is very cute too.

I love the bus! I think you should try it out.

I think the bus is cool, but I think what you currently have is stronger as your intro.

I LOVE the bus, and it gets my vote.

Nice choice! I love the poodle on your blog, don't think about changing that anytime soon.

Hey Violet!! I am late but I really love the result of the vote!! Love the bus!! Would have been my choice too. Great integration of Anna's web site in it too!! :)

O dear, I do love the little girl, too. What about putting her on your blog for a while? You could maybe rotate between her and the poodle.
