I would like an avatar/character/mascot that is a representation of myself. I would like to use this avatar on all my social networks, and also potentially as a part of a larger background image for my about.me / twitter page.
I would prefer something scalable (vector based), but a large bitmap/raster image file would also be good.
Don’t worry too much about the avatar looking exactly like me, just a hint will do, or even if you want to go abstract, I'm fully open to your ideas.
In the pictures that I have included there are a few of pictures of myself, and some artwork that I like, so you can get a feel for the kind of thing that I am after. As you can see they are more modern designs, avoiding the classic “clip art” look. I have added reasons for why certain designs apeal to me in the comments section as designs have come in, so this might provide a better insight.
The pictures I have included vary in style, so don’t be afraid to throw something new at me. I promise to provide feedback.
Have a look in the comments section for further advice that I have added as the designs have started to come in.
