Thanks j, yeah it's also Bourdin. That's actually the photo that LabelKing first posted while we were in Andy exile that introduced me to Bourdin. Since then I've really taken a liking and hope to integrate some of his work into wherever I end up living. The colors and settings he use could really make a room intense--chicks dig that kind of thing, right?

You should get the one with the naked girl bleeding on the floor, looks like a Coke OD, chicks totally dig that. Especially when it's a 10'by10' in your living room.

It was the first forum I joined, and the caption by another member captured me perfectly accurately.

"Fatty's avatar means she is basically an arse to everybody."

It is indeed my jeans, on me.

A native of Osaka, Japan, Edmund Honda was trained to be a sumotori at a very early age. Although small for his age (at the time) he trained hard, and applied himself to his studies and training. With time, he grew out to his full size and potential and rapidly moved his way up through the ranks to become a yokozuna.

Once he retired from competition, Honda opened his own dojo and begin training new wrestlers. He also wrote down his thoughts and opinions on his sport. Some of these writings angered other martial artists, who then challenged Honda to prove the superiority of his style. Honda, honor bound to accept or risk loosing face, fought in these matches, emerging the winner. Encouraged by his success, he then entered the Street Fighting circuit to prove the worthiness of his style and his skill as a fighter.

Honda is a champion through and through. His victories have come as a result of a grueling training regimen as well as a complete commitment to his studies and his art. Not only has Honda practiced his techniques, he has studied them, coming to understand the principles behind sumo as well as the art itself. Honda has also opened up his studies to such topics as Shintoism and poetry, as a way to round out his education as a warrior.

Honda is very much an honorable competitor, and follows the traditions of his art to the letter. He will fight fairly in a match, for to do other wise is to bring shame to his name, his art, and Japan. Honda is also fair in his dealing with others, treating all others equally and with the respect that they deserve. He will not underestimate a foe by acting in a brash or overconfident manner. At all times, he will fight to the best of his ability, as he wishes to prove that sumo is the best of all possible martial arts.


As a yokozuna (champion) Honda is a master of the art of sumo. He has modified the original sport form of sumo into a more practical fighting art, and uses his size and strength to great effect in the Street Fighter circuit. In general he keeps to the ground, using an assortment of slaps, smashes, and throws to keep his opponent off-balance. It is when his opponent least expects it (like after being Stunned) that Honda will take to the air, performing his well-known Flying Head Butt or Air Smash (which is where he leaps into the air and lands on his foe).

Honda has refined his striking skill to the point where he can unleash a dozen blows in an eye-blink. His Hundred Hand Slap is a favorite and much feared technique. Honda has also added a few kicking techniques to his arsenal and will not hesitate to use them if possible.

When not competing in Street Fighter matches, Honda runs his own sumo school in Japan. He has a number of students and his school is fairly popular.

E. Honda was one of my favorite SF characters to play. very hard to play and sort of limited in range so i liked that underdog aspect of him. when played up against a decent Ken or Ryu, Dhalsim, or Guile, it is very rare he could win, but when he does, there is tremendous applause.

I also love to play Guile, Zangief, and Blanka. Zanief probably is my favorite character to play, very hard to handle, and short range, but once I can get in close enough, it is almost all over.

my avatar was on a scratch piece of paper where i hastily scribble on temporary notes and numbers at work.

once i was on the phone with Hewlett-Packard support for over an hour and i scribbled a little doodle of a guy in a suit (i dont know why i drew him angry with his fist in his air).

I thought the picture was cool, so i scanned it into as my SF avatar.

For the Pentax calendar 1980. He had total control over his projects, given free reign by a then unconservative Vogue and also the progressive Charles Jourdan.

Also for Tiger, Guy Bourdin's dealer: www.pacemacgill.com/ I've never seen posters, so you'll have to be stuck with buying the real deal.

My new avatar is Oilcan Harry, the villain cat from the old Mighty Mouse cartoons. I like his conspiratorial air.
