Check Out My Ugly Mug on


Warren Ellis is currently running a feature on his site called world Wide Week 2008, where he asks everyone who uses his Whitechapel forums for submit a picture of them selves. The reason for this he says is:

“because people forget that there are other people on the other end of the internet. People forget that they’re side by side with other people every time they visit a website, that they’re talking with real people every time they post a comment. It’s too easy for people to let everyone become anonymous on the net. I don’t like that. This whole thing is made out of people. Once a year, I like to remind you. Also, this site has always attracted interesting-looking people”

I submitted a picture of myself with a thick beard (I no longer have it). My eyes are wide in the picture because my camera flash is a professional one, and is rather bright at close range. My wife calls it my scary serial killer picture. You can see it here

    Holy crap! Your wife is right about that photo! It’s the sort of thing I’d expect to see on the 11 o’clock news along with neighbours saying, “He was always such a quiet person…!”

    Haha! I thought it was quite appropriate for Warren’s website though
