Leon – Today

Leon today

After digging out his old yearbook photo, Leon insisted I’d take a picture of him today. He probably just wanted to show I really was kidding about his hair.
There are about 20 years between yesterday’s and today’s photos, but I dare say, the years have treated him rather well.

Leon – Yearbook Challenge

Leon's yearbook photo

After a lengthy discussion, Leon allowed me to post his yearbook photo from the year he graduated. He wouldn’t tell me exactly when it was taken, but I assume it must’ve been in the mid 90s. C’mon, Leon, it can’t be that bad. At least it’s in colour! Maybe he’s just shy about it, because he was still on crutches after his motorbike accident and the scar on his jaw was still fresh… Is it me, or was his hair a little fuller back then, too? No, just kidding!

Leon – Piano

leon - pianoNext to his work, Leon’s biggest passion is music. A picture of him in the operating theatre would probably not be very appealing to most people, so here’s one of him playing the piano.

Due to his massive physique, Leon could be easily mistaken for a brute, but in fact he is quite the opposite. When he plays classic masterpieces on the piano, his fingers stroke the keys ever so gently and he completely loses himself in the music.

P.S.: I am absolutely not a fan of cluttering a blog post with links to music videos, but in case you want to know – I was listening to Chopin’s Nocturnes while taking and editing this picture.

Thrifty Tips – She’s free, but not cheap

thrifty tips - free not cheap 1Here’s the first post of what might become yet another new series on my blog – Thrifty Tips. Every once in a while, I like to go and hunt for quality freebies or cheapies, and I think, they do deserve some space on my blog, too.

When I put together my last post, I needed a few avatars for the second picture. Not too many people were around to help, so I had to dig out an older, unused account of mine. Her look was terribly dated, and she received a makeover, which was completely free and turned out very well, if I may say so myself.
Now, she isn’t one of my characters. There’s no story behind this girl and she doesn’t even have a name. But I think, she’s cute as a button, even if she’s a bit on the young side.

Oh, and thanks to Helena Stringer for pointing out the free skin on Plurk!
