not a lumberjack

I thought he was going to be a lumberjack. I cut him out and sewed him up thinking he’d be a lumberjack. But, I sat back and took a good look at him and decided he just wasn’t. I posted this pic in various places and asked people who he was. I got loads of great answers and in the best of all possible worlds, I would have made ALL the things people suggested- a poet, a psych professor, a fisherman, a barista, a bounty hunter, a boxer, hipster, and musician.

5:11:hipster1So he is a hipster musician and who knows what else. I made him a banjo and a ukulele.

5:11:hipster5And a messenger bag with 2 books and 2 pencils. So we can add artist, writer, and/or composer.
