BIG SERIOUS QUESTION FOR ALL YOU READERS

“Just picture me as a hot, sun kissed model with a thick ass” – USA

For as long as I’ve had this blog I’ve kept the characters’ appearances as vague as possible because I wanted readers to be able to imagine them however they wanted. And that’s cool. Because of the subject matter, I think it’s important that your country looks like someone you can relate to. But I also know that having a set appearance for a character (and then expressing that through art/illustrations/etc.) helps that character become a memorable icon.

So, here’s an open question to all my readers and whomever it may concern: should I keep the characters’ appearances “anonymous” or not?

In other words, are you happy imagining them on your own, or would you have more fun if you could see established characters?

  1. I’d vote anonymous also. It makes it more mysterious, like a guessing game. And I think the anonymity solidifies the look so it can be iconic.
