0714I tried to exemplify a MINI convertible owner with this one… in fact I think this was the first one I had drawn with a full on smile (which then led to other people asking why their MINIon wasn’t smiling).  As I’ve said many people said “just draw whatever!” which puts me into a bit of a bind, what if they don’t like it?  If the request is hyper-detailed it becomes work, but when you are trying to capture someone in a drawing of a monkey, so many things could go wrong.  So I decided that I rarely see MINIon #0714 without a smile, I would make the skin tone a little more tan, and when you drive a convertible you better have sunglasses.

MINIon #0714 (I still think they chose that number so they would be one higher than #0713) was part of the group we met in England at MINI United, and since then has been an active part of the MINIons.  Always willing to lend a helping hand Sue actually drove with MINIon #0714 for part of MINI Takes The States 2014 after I had to head home for the start of school.
