Power User Profiles: Herr D

Ages ago, in the mists of time when Jeff still did all of the blog posts, there was this thing called Power User Profiles. The idea was to highlight certain members of the Heromachine community who make a big contribution to the community. I always loved this topic on the blog, so I thought I’d bring it back for a few ‘machiners who I think really deserve the title Power Users. This week, a very unique creator who has a definite style to all his pictures and certainly to his comments. So please welcome, Herr D.

Power User Profile: djuby!

Back in the day, we used to have a little feature I called “Power User Profiles“. It was a way of getting to know some of the more prolific and creative members of the community via a hard-hitting Sixty Minutes style questionnaire. I’m bringing it back this week in lieu of a broader Sharing Day because I got fascinated by the profession and style of djuby. So without further ado, sit back and enjoy getting to know this intrepid illustrator better.

META: No PUP today

I dropped the ball on the Power User Profiles and thought I had one ready, when in fact I don’t. My apologies, but we’ll have no PUP today.

So if you all want to treat this as an open thread, go for it! Discuss anything you like within the bounds of appropriateness. If you have another community member you’d like to see profiled, definitely let me know. Or you could discuss the weather, the “DC52″ relaunch, what upcoming super-hero movies you are excited about, college football, or whatever you like.
