@peace-bros has kindly graced me with a lovely fan art doodle I shall use as my Facebook picture.
I do love these portraits. I keep them in a file on my phone. They make me very happy, so thank you very much for providing them, all you gentle readers.
It is odd because it isn’t the sort of sensation my detractors might suppose. It isn’t an “ego boost”. I think of art as an incredible magic, and the human capacity to create art an incredible thing. That this humble person should inspire it in others is fascinating and a joyful thing to me. I recognize that art takes time, skill, and technique – which is why whenever I am given it as a gift, I always feature it on one of my social media sites. I want the creators to know that their work is important and worth pursuing.
It also pleases me to see the differences and similarities in perceptions of me, based merely upon my own description of myself. I like to see how differing styles capture the same notion. It’s all remarkable.
Perhaps some day, I will repost all the lovely images together. A mini album.
