I would be interested in someone creating a caricature of me that I can use as a Twitter icon, on blogs, on web posts, linkedin etc.
A successful caricature would be able to show the following:
Although I am a teacher of traditional subjects such as history, politics, social sciences, I make use of technology (such as tablets/data projections/online research etc) rather than using blackboards/chalk etc. In other words I teach in a very 21st century way.
Images linked to traditional teacher stereotypes such as apples, blackboards etc are therefore not the image I want to convey. I'd rather something more modern in the design elements.
I'm often described as "high energy", people person, positive, outgoing, friendly, approachable... it'd be nice to have this come through in any caricature of me.
I'm conservative in style of dress / hair, looks etc but not in manner or teaching style... these can be casual... I am athletic in build (wider shoulder than hips/waist) and look fit and wear glasses but these are often/sometimes pushed up on top of my head.
I often wear a blue long sleeved shirt (usually with sleeves rolled up) and dark tie (usually without a pattern and quite narrow), black jeans-cut trousers with belt, and lace up black Doc Marten shoes/boots. Hair color is dark brown/black but graying. My hair is short but not cropped. I rarely if ever wear a jacket.
The final design must be very clear and complimentary to me. It will be used in professional settings and should convey a young outlook but experienced and in touch with young adults.
