I only did it because of the peer pressure. Of course.
Since you haven’t posted your photo on your blog, I don’t know which portrait is yours. “NJ?” “DJP?”
But peer pressure? I have no idea what you’re talking about. [Looks at the ceiling and whistles….] 😀
I used to have my photo up on Vox- it was a long, long time ago. I can’t even remember if we knew each other back then.
Me NJ. You ET? I wouldn’t mind looking like DJP. She looks like a glam 60s icon. I look like..well, myself. 😀
Me ET. NJ reminds me of a Zen painting of the Buddha, serene and strong. I’m still surprised at what the artist chooses to emphasize in his portraits, and what he ignores or eliminates. Mine looks like I’m all glasses and cheekbones, with this English teacher’s haircut. Um, wait, I guess the last one is right….
I like yours. You look like a thinker.
I really like Paul’s style- he picks up on a few features like a classic caricaturist, but they are not necessarily the most identifiable ones. They seem to highlight one particular affect- I’m all cheeks and smiles like a Buddha, which I absolutely love.
I recognized you straightaway! 😀
Are you up there yet? Also, we really need to catch up someday.
Peer Pressure? What a convieniently good reason!
So, have you sent in yours yet? 😀
Since I don’t know what you actually look like, I will just imagine that Paul has created a perfect likeness. I really like it when people whose pictures I’ve never seen participate in EVERYONE. The resulting drawings help me put faces to names I’ve sometimes known for years.
You’d probably recognize me based upon Paul’s picture. Are you represented by the initials MF? I’ve seen some glimpses of you over the years (also the helpful beard contests), and I hope I’ll know you if we ever meet.
His drawing is a lot like blogging in that way, isn’t it? 🙂
Yes, I’m MF. I think mine is one of the strangest ones up there, but I like it.
I like it, too. It would look nice in color, I think. Reds and greys..
I guessed that was you (I haven’t seen a photo either). He made you look smart and kind, which is the sense I get from here.
Aww…thanks! After HG’s comment above, I think my official look is going to be Laughing Buddha.
Are you up there yet?
Peer pressure? I would never use that phrase under any circumstances.
Love the drawing!
How much peer pressure does it take for one to send their picture to a talented artist for a wonderful project and then to see their likeness posted on the web?
You are sedate and smiley in the sketch. I imagine you a bit more cheeky.
I must have been on my best behavior for the photographer that day.
I know what yours brings to mind: an author illustration in a fancy publication. The New Yorker or NYT, perhaps? It’s what they’ll run alongside the review of your first major tome (regarding the nexus of geriatric psychiatry and fine vegan cooking, one assumes).
See? I like THE CHEEKY.
Well, I’m not being entirely cheeky. You know, those cute-yet-sophisticated little characterizations one sees of famous people, or regular columnists, or what-have-you? And there will be a tome, right? Your audience demands a tome!
I will get cracking on the tome as soon as the nexus reveals itself to me in a dream. There will be old people, cookies, and old people eating cookies.
Can Sailor Babo be in there too? I understand he likes cookies.
Of course! He looks kind; I’m sure he likes old people too.
The drawing is great! I wondered if I was going to be looking for a “Freddo Frog” 🙂
*grin* At this point, Freddo and my identities have totally meshed. Did you send in yours, Emjay?
No I haven’t sent one in – the pressure hasn’t got to me yet.
🙂 Do you have Freddo Frogs in India? I haven’t seen any here but I know quite often Australia and India have the same confectionery.
No Freddo Frogs in India, but Cadbury rules.
I think I can resist peer pressure. Being a goddess it is easy to do remain above (and not destroy too many myths)!
But, but, but, your believers need a little something to keep them going!
They might become non-believers though!
EVERYONE believes in everyone
