Which Avatar Should Baker Have Used?

Yup. Club in hand ready to beat the socks off someone who doesn't like your book. That is so my image of you.

This one. A dozy, spotty, peacenik. Absolutely you.

Totally. Short-sighted and peddling your damned books. This is Baker, all right.

True likeness! Beer, specs, no dress sense! Only the chicken is missing.

A Spot of Frivolity: Avatar Poll

Postby Baker » 26 Apr 2010, 15:36

This morning I woke to two emails that demanded a photo or avatar from me RIGHT NOW! AS IN YESTERDAY! (This is for the possible purpose of promoting the I Do Two anthology, which--apparently--has a chance of getting an important review.)

I don't do the photo thing, though I did suggest to Fran that--at a pinch--I might send them one of me in my crash helmet. We agreed that this, perhaps, was not ideal. She then suggested an online site that did cartoon avatars. So, I searched and there were a tonne of them. Naturally, I picked the South Park one. So, here are some avatars. Which one do you think I should have used?

I've only seen one episode of south park years ages ago so I have no idea what the charcters stand for. So, with that caveat I think you should use the character with the beer and hat. I am curiously drawn to that one lol .

#3 (short hair, glasses, book) is closest to how I see you. I'd never pick anything South Park though. That cartoon is too crude.

There is the photo of "you" at GCLS with a bag over your head. You could use that.

Those aren't any of the South Park characters. They have a website where you can generate avatars in the style of South Park cartoons.

I had an email this morning saying that my South Park avatar idea was cute.

Mind you, before I made the avatar, I responded the the urgency of their photo/avatar request by sending them a photo of a teddy bear perched on my bike. So, this morning I had a bio request from one of them with the comment that he thought my bike is cool! It's always the bike! :roll:

Dead ringer for me, I thought: short and dorky looking.
