Here is an archive of the avatars I have used. Since 2015, I commission my avatars from artists with a very loose mandate, letting them do whatever they want within as few parameters as I need. Generally, no detail beyond sizing was requested, although the exact brief varied for each artist.


Commissioned from Tayruu in August 2020, and completed in September 2020.


Commissioned from Huriana Kopeke-Te Aho in February 2019.


Commissioned from Sarah Lund in June 2018, completed in August 2018, and delayed from publication until October 2018 to give the Cup Cat a reasonable amount of time.

Cup Cat

Commissioned from Azu in July 2018.

Snowl Herder

Commissioned from Eoghan Kerrigan in July August September 2017, and received in January 2018.

This was an experiment in commissioning larger pieces and selecting a crop myself for the avatar itself. While I'm pleased with the results, I'm not sure whether I'll continue with this format going forwards. You can see the larger artwork by clicking on the avatar image.


Commissioned from Luke in May 2017.

ACLU sketch

Commissioned from Mason Williams a.k.a. Tailsteak in February 2015.

Léa and me

In early 2014, I changed my avatar to include my significant other of the time. This was taken on the Dune du Pyla in France.

Close-up of me

From mid-2011 onwards, I used an extreme close-up of my face. This was my longest-lasting avatar and probably still remains in use in some accounts I haven't bothered cleaning up.

Blue screen of code

Around 2009 and onwards (I wasn't on the internet much at that time), I used this as an avatar. I probably lifted it from Google Images.
