Well, as you can see from this picture, I am not very photogenic, so a good friend helped me out a little bit and he improved my avatar:
As we say down here Doc ( and you should know ) that aint natural !

Pretty cool idea here so I will join in. I am a graffiti artist and one name I write is krazy. Decided to combine that with glu since we use glue often in the model world The avatar is good ole John Wayne holding a set of refrigeration gauges since I am a Hvac tech. by trade.
Hi, Steve, care to share some of you graffiti work with us?

My user name, 'qwit pushin,' is something my dad used to say after 'breaking wind.' (something like 'pull my finger,' only after the fact...) as for the avatar, well, that's my late father assembling an early AMT kit with mom and me in winter 1961. My dad got me going in the model hobby, so I thought it fitting that everything here, identity-related, go back to him.
Mike I have wondered about your user name since I came here . Pretty neat story , thanks for sharing !

Avatar from a photo I took of my best friend's '54 Chevy. I redrew it in Illustrator for a t-shirt, then just tweaked it to use here too.
