Hello, is this me?

I just updated my hello/introduction page with this new art which I totally adore. Is it okay to adore your own work? Working on this piece made me think about self image and the web. As a blogger and a web user, I can use any image to represent me on the web. So I usually end up using a drawing I've done.

I used this piece for my hello/introduction page because there are many things that are true here:
01 - I do wear eyeglasses and they are black rimmed but I don't wear them all the time
02 - my hair is currently at this length but it's not pink but I do sort of want it to be like this
03 - my skin is sort of this hue but it's not smooth or clear
04 - my eyebrows are that thick but not this neat
05 - my eyes are brown but just a bit darker shade and smaller
06 - my nose might look like this but perhaps not as free of spots
07 - my fingernails are short but they're never painted in any bright colors
08 - I have pierced ears but not seven holes nor do I wear earrings often
09 - I hardly wear such bright color shirts but I owned a few of them
10 - I do like chocolate milk & books

So do I consider this art me? Yes and no. As much as I would like to say this is how I look, this isn't quite true. This is more like a representation of me, perhaps an image of what I like to present as myself. Art is really the only way I'm comfortable showing my face, well, a face that might appear to be me even if it doesn't look like me.

How about you? How do you represent yourself visually on the web: with a photo of your headshot, a drawing, an image of a flower, a picture of your dog or just any old image?
