Daniel Butler, the talented illustrator whose work graces the robot noir masterpiece Copernicus Jones, has recently been taking commissions for custom userpics.
I took the lad up on his offer, and requested an portrait of someone very near and dear to me — namely, “myself.”
I’m quite pleased with the finished product, as it perfectly captures the perpetual grimace and aura of ingrained disgust with which I greet each disappointing new day. “That’s totally you,” said my wife — and if anyone would know, it would be her.
