It’s been years now since I found a rather amusing icon on the backwaters of the Internet somewhere, and decided to adopt it as a symbol of … me.
Fact is though, I don’t have license or permission to use the previous image, and as this site becomes more prominent (I laugh as I write that), I start to wonder if perhaps a freer image is important.
So I approached a semiprofessional artist sometime last year, and “commissioned” an original work to serve as a symbol. This one is fully owned by me, without any strictures or terms from the artist.
At the same time, I am really like the new image, for capturing the essence of what the old one meant to me, and at the same time adding an accent that the old one lacked.
This might not be much to clamor about, when the image is generally displayed in a 90-pixel square, it’s an important moment in local history. Inasmuch as this site is a “home.”
