It took me a few days to decide on the style I want the image to be. On one hand I want it to be a cute astronaut girl, but on the other hand I want to keep it as simple as possible, so that I can animate it easily, and so that it's recognizable from a distance. After some experimenting with different techniques and programs, and looking at different cartoons, I finally decided on a style that is inspired by the Swiss Familienwagen decorations. It's very cartoonish and simple, but stil pretty cute. I got the first, easiest animation done: blinking.
