Da Vinci's Leda and the swan, but hand drawn and only Leda's head.
I have it because one day when I was a teenager, I was looking up Da Vinci art on google, and I stumbled upon this picture, I thought it would make a nice Avatar.

It's a Mandelbrot fractal. I really like math, patterns, and symmetry.

I totally didn't know that was a bicycle until I saw this. I guess I never really looked too hard at it.

My avatar is the doom guy. I chose him because it caught my eye when I was first choosing an avatar picture. No other reason than that.

It's me about four years ago at Notting Hill Carnival. I always thought it was a cool picture and the green went with the Mentor theme.

And the Banker, inspired with a courage so new
It was matter for general remark,
Rushed madly ahead and was lost to their view
In his zeal to discover the Snark.
But while he was seeking with thimbles and care,
A Bandersnatch swiftly drew nigh
And grabbed at the Banker, who shrieked in despair,
For he knew it was useless to fly.
He offered large discount—he offered a check
(Drawn "to bearer") for seven-pounds-ten:
But the Bandersnatch merely extended its neck
And grabbed at the Banker again.
Without rest or pause—while those frumious jaws
Went savagely snapping around—
He skipped and he hopped, and he floundered and flopped,
Till fainting he fell to the ground.
The Bandersnatch fled as the others appeared
Led on by that fear-stricken yell:
And the Bellman remarked "It is just as I feared!"
And solemnly tolled on his bell


A family photo with the desperate Jubjub Bird:

What's that you've written round about the prow? Lady of shallots? Selling organic food, are you?

Frumious though you may be, but still -
Beware the Jabberwock, my son!

Ah, that's a lie. You are not casting any shadows.
say what it is and why you picked it
I wanted something fancy and feminine that was gentle to the eyes, but in the end I couldn't get it to be fancy, neither feminine :sorry:. Not to mention the halo isn't symmetric. I made the original halo pink, but it was too strawberry (too girly, I wanted more balance) and I changed it for purple. This was the original one I made:

As you can see the halo isn't either symmetric (gosh, it's so hard for me, I'm not good at art). And it's too girly. I want feminine, but not too much.
