One of the first images that I “pinned” to Pinterest was this illustration by Swedish artist Jonas Löfgren. It is Enid Coleslaw, the lead character portrayed by Thora Birch in the movie Ghost World. On Pinterest, I labeled it “my doppelgänger” because it (sort of) reminded me of myself with the black-rimmed glasses, and the chin-length bob parted on the side and held in place by a barrette. Here are other young female protagonists as interpreted by Jonas.  Jonas Löfgren 02
