Big Hands Doodle

This intriguing doodle shows a curly haired person (neither male nor female) with stretched-out arms and hands that reach towards the sky. The large hands are out of proportion to the rest of the body. Surrounding the smiling figure are lines, hearts, triangles and circles.

Big Hand Doodle

The figure is neither definitively male nor female. This indicates that the doodler does not fit into the traditional male or female stereotype. However, the surrounding hearts show that the doodler is most likely female (males rarely doodle hearts).

The arms that reach out towards the heavens show that this doodler's goals are sky high. The humongous hands indicate that she craves a lot of material goods and has a desire for attention and greatness. These big hands also indicate that her hands hold many gifts.

While one big heart is close to the figure, most of the hearts are in the periphery surrounded by lines and cross-hatching. This shows that while this doodler has a big generous heart -- love always seems out of bounds for her.

The large smile on the face of the figure shows that when fame, fortune and fun is finally bestowed on our doodler she will be one happy gal -- of course she may still crave what she most desires -- love. Let's see what she has to say!

Feedback from Maria from Los Angeles, California

"Wow -- you just blew me away! You're so right. I've never fit into the typical male or female stereotype. I always joke that I need a husband and a wife. And, I have to admit that I do like nice things. It's kind of a curse since right now because I have filet mignon taste, but a meatball budget. Yes, I am working towards becoming a star and I've never settled for meritocracy. You were right when you said that my hands are quite important to me, since I am a sculptor. And, well, about love...somehow it always seems a step away. Thank you. I think you nailed me right on!"
