This person is local for me and I found him via Myspace of all places. I was out surfing to pick on some old friends when the avatar caught my eye. Really, check out his work, it's amazing. I think he was in our local paper once too. Gotta love the internet...

I'm sure with all of this he has got to do custom avatars... I'm going to see if I can get one done at scrapbook page size for myself.
All I can say is... WOW!
