A while back, the good folks at the Arizona Library Association (aka AzLA) contacted me about a project they were working on. They wanted to get pictures of librarians doing non-librarian things for a thing they were doing. I figured it was some kind of Tumblr blog or website dealie or something. I told them, well, I don’t go skydiving and I’m bereft of firearms… perhaps you’d like something of me as a podcaster?
They agreed so I did some photography, some Photoshoppery, and sent it on.
Then I totally forgot about it.
So I’m wandering around the 2013 AzLA Annual Conference and looking at stuff and talking to people and then I go outside and sit down to wait for the next session to start. One of my co-workers came out and asked me if I’d seen my picture?
The one on all the brochures and their big poster at the membership booth.
She handed me one of their fliers, lovingly printed on glossy card stock and, sure enough, there I am. I sauntered inside later and my head was on the membership poster, looking down upon various conference goers with a stare that even I couldn’t help but see as menacing.
Oh well, I’m happy they found a use for my weird head and I hope they got a few new memberships out of it!
