Confused Joystiq writer immortalized in Art Academy promotion

The review copy of Art Academy sent to me by Nintendo included a bit of example art saved in its gallery. Specifically, this portrait.

Of me!

It's a pretty good example (if I do say so myself) of what you can do with the Art Academy drawing software -- especially if you're drawing semi-cartoony versions of me. Finding a reference picture is as simple as loading my editor bio, but I'm still a bit creeped out to find my own head in the game (albeit just this specific copy). That shivery feeling is tempered by the amusement that comes from thinking about someone at Nintendo having the job of drawing portraits of game writers all day.
