To begin, someone I had known since childhood sent me the image. And I admit the resemblance was reminiscent. However, wondering why some details would be so off, such as one lens is bigger than the other, I went to the web address listed in the corner of the image. An AI artist created the image.

It may be a computer-generated image, but I'm still impressed. I don't know if I want to keep this as my avatar or go back to what I was doing.

The avatar displayed is a computer-generated image of Margo Gru, one of the main characters from the popular animated movie series, Despicable Me. Margo Gru is depicted as a smart, independent, and responsible young girl who is always looking out for her younger sisters.

The quote provided is a line spoken by Wednesday Addams, a fictional character from the 2022 American television series, Wednesday. Wednesday Addams is known for her witty and sarcastic remarks, as well as her macabre sense of humor.

Well actually she is originally from the 1964´s sitcom The Addams family. I watched in the 70´s and it was hilarious.

The quote I mentioned earlier was taken from the most recent rendition of The Addams Family. However, it's worth noting that the origins of this iconic family can be traced back to their debut as a comic strip in 1938, created by cartoonist Charles Addams. The Addams Family quickly gained popularity due to its dark humor and macabre themes, and eventually led to multiple adaptations, including the 1964 sitcom. This rich history shows how The Addams Family has become a beloved cultural phenomenon that has stood the test of time.

Mine is a very old comic from a website called "Exploding Dog". The site has been gone for many years, but I've had this same avatar for ages, over a decade I think.

I've been reading webcomics for over two decades, but I don't remember the title.

IIRC the creator was Sam Brown and the site was "Exploding Dog". He had an odd, whimsical artistic style. The site is gone but I think he's still working, just on somewhat different endeavors.

I have verified that the website is currently accessible and functioning properly.

I guess I explained it wrong, the site isn't gone but no new art has been added in almost a decade. But I'm glad it's still there to read! smile
