Artist's Impression


The question for those who know me is, if the police offered a reward for this criminal, would you recognise me to sell me out?

I suppose, it's not unlike me. The trouble is that I know more about proper proportions than I do about drawing from life, so I've kind of normalised my face a bit and it doesn't look quite so weird as it really does.

Also, right now I am scruffy and unshaven, but I am not normally such a troglodyte.

OMG - Pacian, is that you? That's an awesome self-portrait!! Lovely to see you at last. I had no idea troglodyte's were so good-looking
:-) Actually my brain can't even dredege up what a troglodyte is, right at the moment - I think I may be thinking of either trillobytes or candy bars. I need to get some sleep tonight. I'm meaning to compliment you, in case I'm making even less sense than usual.

You should sketch more often - or I guess I should say share your sketches with us more often, since you could be sketching all the time for all we know. Great work!

I have a poor memory - well, I mean, I look at someone (or a picture) and think "where have I seen him/her before?" but seem totally unable to put a name and occasion to it.

In other words, if the the police were looking for you and gave me that sketch, you would probably be safe. :-) :-) :-)

I would say "Could it be Jack from Lost? Or the drummer from Whatjamacallit? Um...?"

Don't worry, I won't tell the bastards anything!

Ahah! Thought I recognized you! Okay, I didn't.
Good sketch! Good looks, a talent for writing, a smart mind and a smartypants sense of humour - you're a catch, Pacian!

Well, well. Scruffy or not, you're very cute.

Cool. I have a thing for faces and can always remember a face, although the name might take a bit more time..it's the thing about the blogosphere that's always fascinated me-all these people out there and I have no idea what they look like...so I end up with a sort of vague image of what they are like.
I find it interesting how you picture someone as and how they "are" (well as a sketch :) ) can be so similar...for example, you and Diddums kept being all blurry and out of focus in my "dream party" on the weekend...all I could "get" from the blur was she was hearing a denim shirt and you had glasses on-it's nice to know I had a bit guessed right!
And now we could hopefully pick you out of a police line up...I wouldn't sell you out if you bribed me into silence with baked goods...I expect quality trogledyte baked goods as bribery if there is ever a warrant out for your arrest.
