When I wake up and realize that tweeting is happening at 5:30 a.m., I want to throw a shoe at the culprit… unless the culprit isn’t a bird, but a Twitter friend. And if the culprit is a nerdy Twitter friend, I want to throw a bunch of Mario’s gold coins at them because said friend is awesome.
Such is the case with our friends at NerdSalad, who pointed us to outstanding work of artist Adam Koford. Koford has shot that bland Twitter bird avatar with some weapon more dangerous than a BB gun and turned it into outlines of nerdy goodness. Want Wolverine to represent you? Have a soft spot for Link? How about… um… Nancy from that old comic strip? Koford has your back. Check these out.
Check out more of Koford’s work in his Flickr gallery. Are there any characters you think are missing?
