Just starting a new series under the label “Bonus mini articles I found in my Gallery but never posted on the Blog.”
Today? Social Media Avatars, with lots of pictures- What Ho!

You have to stand out in the hurly burly of Facebook, twitter or even the skype phonebook.
As for blogs, a good avatar is your point of difference.

We’ve produced quite a number of likenesses for these situations including personalised “twit” birds.
The “web mechanic” above was provided for the Left Click site designer’s blog.

Sometimes these are wholly stylised, sometimes they’re caricatures.

Here’s a fine selection:
