I need more user pics. Over recent days I've found myself wanting a geeky one (specifically computer geeky), a ringing one and a Methodist one. Any suggestions? And a general ish one. I've been using the Welsh alphabet for that, but in someways I want to reserve that to Welsh specific.

Thanks to [ profile] emperor for the image manipulation of this userpic which is taken from my photo of the Visitiation window in the Church at Taizé. I've added it to a couple of old entries too!

Thanks to [ profile] senji for finding/creating me this userpic. I thought I'd make this post slightly less gratuitus by saying a bit more about it (based on the post version of it I have and have had for the past 8 or so years. I know I had it when I went up to uni but I'm not quite sure where I obtained it. It is:
Siart yr Wyddor a luniwyd gan T. C. Evans Cadrawd tua 1900
An Alphabet Chart devised by T. C. Evans Cadrawd tua 1900.

It gives the 28 traditional letters* used in the Welsh alphabet and a picture to represent them with the Welsh and English for these things. So A is for... )

*J is basically accepted these days and GPC+ has entries for Z (Zwingliaidd at least). I presume this is because there is no other way of expressing these sounds whereas the other 3 letters missing from the alphabet (Q, V and X) are expressed in other ways (cw, f and cs).
+Geiriadur Prifysgol Cymru which is the Welsh equivalent of the OED. Though it's only just been completed (although the first fasicules of the second edition are out). It's also not brilliant in places. In fact, it's plain misleading on one of the words I'm studying.

I have a userpic!!!!!!

About 4 1/2 hours of work in MS Paint!

But I'm very pleased with myself! It's years since I drew pictures in Paint (and that was Risc Os Paint not MS!!!!!!!)

[ETA: Mmmm. [ profile] senji commented that my background colour was a slightly different cyan to the one I am on his fiend's list and so transparented the background for me.]
