We interrupt you regular blog reading with this important message. I just got a new avatar for the blog! Michael got one a few months ago and I was just so envious I had to get one for myself. Well that’s not quite true. When I saw the dapper steam-punk Stargazer I asked him who had done his avatar for him and he pointed me to Symatt, a wonderful and talented guy who was kind enough to take my picture (a dangerous endeavor right there) and my desire to look like a paladin on my avatar, like the character from which I take my nickname, and came up with the image you see in this post.
I want to publicly thank him for the avatar. I am thrilled and uploaded it to Gravatar so you may see his creation in other services. Hope you like it as much as I do. It certainly easier on the eye than my picture!
For a second there, when I had just read the title and not the article, I thought you were talking about the TV show franchise (“Avatar: The Land Airbender” and “Avatar: The Legend of Kora”). Tease 🙂
Sorry for the confusion. Would you believe I have never seen the series? I have seen the awful movie but not the animated series. I know it is supposed to be good, I should see it…
You should! It’s definitely a great series. The first series (3 seasons/books) is a little more kid oriented, but still a good show for adults. The new one (Legend of Kora) is a bit more teen oriented… but, again, still a good show for adults.
I have a friend who swears by it, and I must admit I have been negligent in catching up with animation. I watch as much as I can see, but I see more procedural drama and documentaries each day. Growing old! Thanks for the recommendation…
Now I feel like the odd man out!
I think symatt offered to create avatars for all of us, if I am not mistaken. I can get you in touch with him, if you wish.
Yeah, join us, join us! jejejeje
Love it. So what was the medium? Looks like maybe watercolors?
I must admit I have no idea, I can ask the artist and let you know…
