Oracle Magazine Picture…


Eddie Awad posted his Oracle magazine picture on his blog, so I thought I’d have a look for mine…

The photographer sent me some rought drafts of the shots he was going to send forward and one struck me as being the worst of the pile by a long shot. Guess which one they used? πŸ™‚

Now I’m no oil painting, but this shot is really bad! I’m squinting so badly my eyes look like they’ve been transplanted from a 70 year old. My shirt is billowing out in the wind, making me look like I’m about 50 lbs heavier than I am, and the angle makes me look like I have some sort of tumour on the right side of my jaw. It’s nasty!

On the plus side, I’m normally deathly pale, but in this shot they’ve made me look like I’ve got some colour in my skin. Amazing what you can do with photoshop!

Please try to avoid this picture and think of me as looking like Brad Pitt! I’m so vain it’s unbelievable… πŸ™‚

  1. But how we know that it is a bad photo – do you have proof? πŸ˜‰

    I guess if people still queue to meet you at OOW then it was a good photo

  2. Ask my mom. She says I’m hansome and she wouldn’t lie to me! πŸ™‚

    Based on this photo I expect the queues to be massive. They’ll all be coming to look at the freak. I told the photographer I shouldn’t attempt to smile. I’m not used to it and my face starts to spasm. πŸ˜‰

    At least it’s lowered peoples expectations…



  3. I suppose I should delete the offending link, but that would only prove my vanity.

    At least this version of the pitcure is a bit smaller than the one I saw!



  4. Hey Brad,

    at least your picture is much better than mine, you have a photogenic face.

    I thought that they would pick a better picture of me, especially that the photographer and I spent more than one hour taking tens of snapshots (which I’ve never seen). Oh Well!

  5. now:
    why would anyone want to look like Arm Pit…
    I mean, Broad Pit…
    Arrrh, you KNOW what I mean! $%^&#!

    There you go, at least now we have a better image of you than that microscopic avatar of yours. About time!
    Haven’t received this edition of Oracle magazine. Is it out yet?

  6. Hi sir,
    You look great in this pic.Dont be worried.Brad Pitt has got some “serious competition” this time ;-).Congrats a ton once again!
    Best regards

  7. Hi Tim,

    Congratulations on the award, very well deserved.

    If it’s any consolation, I hate my picture too, I didn’t get sent any proofs but if they’ve printed the best one I dread to think which ones didn’t make the cut!


  8. I can’t blame him. He sent me some good shots. I blame Oracle Magazine for picking the bad ones!

    I’m starting to think I may be a minger! πŸ™‚



  9. Exercise is so bad for you. I’m always getting injured as a result of it!

    Bad food and booze is the way to go. It’s taken me too long to come to this conclusion! πŸ™‚



  10. Congratulations!

    …a few more vampire books and maybe you won’t have to pose under the blue sky any more… and your drinking habits may change! πŸ™‚
