Apparently, all the cool kids are doing it


My "Manga avatar" from "Face your Manga." Hat tip to Sweater Project for letting me know I was behind on this important trend…

ETA: for comparison’s sake, a real photo of me (taken by my insanely talented brother ):

Another non-headshotty-headshot from Brian


  1. Yours looks Mangalectible. Welcome to the club!

  2. Thanks! I just added a real-live photo for comparison purposes… I think it’s pretty mangarrific myself. I especially liked that it allowed me to add, ehrm… LAUGH LINES at the corners of my eyes – gives that added bit of verisimilitude…

  3. Apparently old people don’t have manga faces, but I did my best. However, it’s taking forever to make. If it ever turns up, I’ll put it on my LJ for a day at least.

  4. :::sniff::: I waited an hour twice and half an hour once and the little head just kept going around so I never got my manga face. I guess I’ll have to do with the real one.
