"Cheeseman." My own doodle, in Sharpie.

This is not your typical smiley-face, I know, but I had to begin with it for personal reasons.  When I was in high school, I wound up with the odd nickname of “Cheeseman” (which I seem to remember sometimes spelling with a z).  My old high school friends insist I gave myself the name, though I don’t remember why.  But I do remember doodling this face, all grin and gleaming eyes, as the face of my sobriquet.  I used the doodle so frequently back then that, among my group of close friends, it sometimes served as my signature on passed notes or as a mark of ownership scribbled into notebooks and binders.  This grinning guy was, in many ways, my not-so-alter ego.  So I thought it would make a fun first smiley.
