Personally I love your new avatar mLee. I vote to keep it.
sugarlumps, like you the visual I remember, the name I often forget. And on an ecommerce website, that is often true; especially with artists who are mostly right brain (visual) people.
There are often good reasons to change an avatar but just remember that in our situation, changing one's avatar is akin to changing one's logo. Consider it carefully because for some time, you will be, in effect, *unbranding* yourself.
