Dave!To the person who asked, the cartoon character you see on Blogography is indeed a visual representation of me. Or rather, a representation of my inner child. The story of how the design came about is here. But the design itself is based on a photo of me as a kid. I don't think I've published it before, so here you go...

The Real Lil' Dave
Lil' Dave Morphin'
Lil' Dave Morphin'
Lil' Dave Morphin'
Lil' Dave Morphin'
The Toon Lil' Dave

The hair is based on many, many other photos of how it looked through most of my childhood (and a and a big chunk of my adulthood)...

Lil' Dave's Messy Hair

And there you have it. Thanks for the email!

    Whoa. Cool. Thanks for sharing! About that hair…



  2. Invader_Stu says:

    That’s a similar story to mine. I based mine partly on how I looked as a kid and partly how I look now.

  3. LeSombre says:

    Love these posts!

  4. kilax says:

    Aww! I love the morph images! 🙂

  5. Sarkawt says:

    This is my best friend, LilDave! But, seriously, the way you have morphed your real picture is amazing! Nice post!

  6. Sybil Law says:

    Awwww. You were still cuter than Li’l Dave!

  7. martymankins says:

    Nice. I love these “how it came to be” posts.

  8. the muskrat says:

    I love seeing how things like this morph into being!

  9. Avitable says:

    That’s exactly how I developed MY cartoon avatar, too! From a childhood photo of you!

  10. I say it every time you post one of these, so why break with tradition? I love love love the “behind the scenes” stories. More of these Dave.

  11. Someday, we’re going to be at Davelanta and we’ll be sitting across the table from one another and as you’re talking, you’ll slowly morph into Lil’ Dave. And it’s at that moment I’ll lose my shit and end up free-basing Clorox in my eyes.
