let us bow our heads in thanks

i'd like to take a moment to applaud the illustrious illustrative talents of mr. marc fishman, who the stalkerish among you will recognize from the comments section. check out that picture up there on that banner that he made. that's me! i totally look exactly like that, except my nose is a little smaller and my skin a tidge more ghostly pale.

UPDATE: Love is also deeply due to little bill, who turned marc's beautiful vector art into a lipstick flourish of banner redness, a la my possibly misguided wishes. truly he is an internet genius, and when i am no longer too lazy to update my link list, i'll throw his blog on there.
