Me and my friend Stu (on the right) and a certain astro droid at Star Wars: Celebration Europe in 2007.

Modesty forbids me from commenting on my glorious avatar. Those in the know know why.....
I'll take a guess it's a portrait of you by King Carlos?  Presumably got published in a Dredd strip...

Mine is from that time I met Sir Terry Pratchett, around the corner from where I live (well, two corners, but who's counting?)  In the same evening I also met Shappi Korsandi and John Lloyd (the one behind Blackadder, QI and a few books with Douglas Adams).

Shappi Khorsandi - and I thought I was going to misspell her first name...

Mine is a detail of an effort of mine, from a bygone age, when I would manage to find time to draw.

It was for this forum's art comp on the theme: classic 2000AD moments for which I drew a scene from The Return of Rico.

Because I love Kingdom; I forget I have an avatar; and I'm Lazy.

In that order of events.

Doctor - screw modesty for those of us not in the know!

I am suspicious of its qualifications.

My character from the Judge Minty film drawn by Cliff Robinson for my commission of Judge Minty and the mutant gang.
Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side.

When I joined I picked one of the sample avatars but it turned out to be the one used by one of the mods, Wake - as an internet novice I had no clue what I was doing but Wake was super-helpful in setting up another Dan Dare avatar.

There was a prolific boarder at the time who had an animated avatar of kicking boots - I asked how such a miracle was possible and was directed to various free gif-maker sites. Bushy eyebrow dude is my default doodle in boring meetings so that was my first scribble.

I've considered changing it many times but I feel that now people know me by it, it would be at best confusing, at worst downright rude to change it.

It's the badge/crest of the mighty Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

Mikey SMUSH!

 This is a pic I took of my Mongrol toy the day I got it. It also represents my fall down the collecting tat rabbit hole after years of being on the wagon. 
To tell the truth, you can all get screwed.

I saw your badge at the 40th (I was the one who said I was disappointed that the badge wasn't animated!)
