Well, that was a horrible mistake…

What was I thinking updating my avatar to one that made me look like a foreboding, drunken, bruised, giant-nosed weirdo?

I have recanted, and removed most traces thereof, replacing it with a variation of the same photo by Alper Çuğun from 2009 that I sliced and diced two years ago.

So what was once this:

Old Avatar

is now this:

The New Avatar

Same image. Just revealing more of myself.

Maybe that’s a better metaphor than “here, let me stick my nose in your face,” no?

I like that one, especially because it's candid and I think shows you in a characteristic, likeable state.

Yes. What Oliver B said.

I could say the same thing about your Gravatar, Martin ;-)
