Why did you choose your avatar?

Mine is a Banksy stencil of a protester throwing flowers, still love his work thought it's a shame how some try to sell it or deface it. Had it years years now. Before that it was Scott Pilgrim as Scott is in my name (deep!)

I've had loads but my current one is a screengrab from Don Hertzfeldt's Rejected, which if you haven't seen it I insist you must.

Go on... watch it. NOW.

I use a different Transformer and avatar for each site I am on.

Bit of a transformers fan in case you were wondering.

I recovered some old Spectrum pictures from tape that I'd drawn in OCP Art Studio back in the '80s. Being quite pleased with myself at the time, I cropped one for my avatar here.

I'm a fan of Paradroid and Uridium (and Andrew Braybrook in general), so I used the Influence Device from Paradroid as it seems perfect, with it looking like a head with eyes. I like the way it animates, too.

Hmmmm A, B, C or D

A. Mine depicts the eternal monotony of life going round and round, the same thing over and over again.
Or
B. My life currently seems to be heading over a cliff.
Or
C. I liked the stick man animations, they are small enough to survive the stupid forum avatar rules and I have no other reason for having it!
OR
D. All of the above.

I think you can guess what reason...

I just found a random picture of the domestic feline that was small enough to fit on this forum.
