Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Londo Mo-llari

To cut a long story short, a few months ago I allowed myself a few side-tracking clicks on a web-page or two and ended up becoming aware of the virtual existence of Lee (whom I am sure also exists in real life). As he puts it, he’s a blogger, social media guy, artist, and pop culturalist at http://quityourdayjob.com.au/; and he is also a member of the Coalition of Awesomeness at http://the-coa.com/.

Anyway, to cut to the chase, Lee decided that he was going to participate in Movember, a fundraising activity which involves guys growing fuzz on their upper lips during November, in order to raise money to support men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and depression. Since these are worthy causes that have affected some of the important people in my life, I thought I would sponsor him.

So I did. Now I would have made the donation anyway, but Lee had promised personalised sketch cards for his sponsors, and I had racked my brains to choose a suitable character. I share some of Lee’s interest in science fiction (eventually I’ll get around to showing you the really cool set of Stargate cards that he did), and I wanted something that I would like and that I hoped he would like to draw.

Then it came to me: Londo Mollari from Babylon 5. Great character, in a great series.

And, as you can see, Lee has done a great job of capturing Londo’s likeness and adding a suitable Movember hirsuteness to his philtrum and beyond.

I love it.

(I should point out that Lee’s Movember mo was of quite a different style. He went for a Nick Cave handlebar.)

[I enjoyed the self-referential contradiction of clicking “Uncategorized” as the category for this post.]
