Some days the humour works, some days it doesn't. When in doubt... it's jest!

Apart from all the heart break, soul break, and what have you (which must have an outlet, Iím sure), I like this kind of quiet humor a lot.
A bonus point, karma point for you.

You see, I still have to learn a lot.
Thank you for the grin on my face.
Kind regards, Gus

it's been interesting to hear everybody's stories behind their avatars, what members are inspired by and how they have changed as they move forward on du :]

looking back on using avatars throughout my years on DU, for a good while i was using art illustrations by a korean artist called daehyun kim or better known as moonassi, he's often known as the man with no identity who always uses non descriptive clothing and expressionless faces in the characters he creates, he often omits to the time, location and gender of his characters & if a scene is good or bad due to shifting the viewers attention on the movements and actions of his characters rather than facial expressions and emotions, i suppose these art illustrations relate to my core and has shaped my approach to my way of living, my journey and art on many levels.

nowadays i am a bit more content in my own skin and using my own picture as my avatar, there was a good few years i never took pictures of myself due to image related issues and going through transition, it's been nice noticing the small changes moving forward. :]

My avatar is me, 7-8 years ago, when I was in my late 50s. Sitting at a cafť here (Portugal) where I had my camera, having taken a photo of some high mineral content rock-dust which I could scrape off for free in 'the commons' wilderness, to use for plants.
Anyway, he looked at the camera, then suddenly took this photo. I liked it. The name you see is my name. If you wish, pencil in some extra lines on my face to bring it up to date.

I wanted something that went along with my username, so I used something that had been written, scratched, edited, notes in the margins, and pretty scruffed up. Seemed like a good fit.
