I've been FlipFaced!

A while ago, I saw a tweet by @Veronica talking about her new FlipFace avatar. I had a look and it was really sweet! I’ve been wanting a cartoon-style avatar for a long time and at USD10 a pop I didn’t even blink twice! Check out my very own avatar:

What do you think? Tell me in the comments (but please be gentle :P)

In my personal opinion, I think the artist Len Peralta did a great job. I’m using it as my Twitter avatar, and I think it really stands out. Get your own FlipFace too! And be sure to follow @jawboneradio on Twitter!

P.S. If you’re looking for a different style of avatar, you can also check out Fast Icon caricatures which I had almost purchased.
