Self-Portrait

People ask occasionally what I look like. I'm not sure why, unless they're hoping that I am either a supermodel or really do resemble Chu the Chupacabra from my quasi-autobiographical comic "Irrational Fears."* They'd be disappointed on both fronts, I suspect.

Actually...sorta like this, only with a bit more realism. (That's an equally loose version of my cat, Ben. Ben is a very nice cat, but only when he chooses to be.)


*I'm not green, but I do own a beret. [link]

Ursula,
This just popped up in my favorites again. I really do like this drawing.
Self-portraits, whether drawn or photographed, are endlessly fascinating to me.

I think people ask because they wish to see the face behind the genius. [/suckup]

In any case, though, this is a charming little sketch. ^_^

...You make me think of the ever-popular Digger...

No offense but you make me think of a delightfully huggable hobbit.

You can blame this on my freakin' dirty mind, but I see something that resembles male gentalia.

I like Ben. He looks almost mystical and about to shoot flame out of his mouth any moment.

ya know, a woman who attended my school last year always reminded me of one of your illistrations, she had features almost identical to what you draw people with, but she didnt look like anything you had specificaly done untill this.
And of course as usual it is beatuful "work".

hehe that looks about right from what I pictured. ;) I also have a cat named ben who's just that way... I wonder if they're related. :)

Demonic and angelic dust-bunnies. Oh, the D&D nerd inside me is wanting to write out stats for making them encounters.

It's the Precious Moments address lables, isn't it? They are affecting your brain masses and self-image!

(I have actually wondered quite a bit about what you look like, seeing as I'll probably never be able to go to an american con and gawk at you in person, and whenever I saw the other self-portrait of yourself (comparing to two now makes me laugh) I almost began to crane my neck around, as though I could somehow make the picture turn you around.)

heh, dunno if that's anywhere close to what you actually look like, you appear to be very snuggable . o O (Not unlike Digger, i guess ;) )

and *squeee* to always wearing pants (well, almost always!)
