Yeah, I saw that - it seems to be part of a series, since a previous avatar of his featured Sight & Sound's former editor Nick James. I wonder who's next?

Anyway, it's not a very good representation of me prepping Orphans (I'd forgotten just how much of a gutbusting laugh riot that film is), unless it's supposed to catch me in mid-furrowed-brow concentration as I try to transcribe a particularly colloquial bit of Glaswegian for the subtitles. Striking the right balance between accuracy and necessarily rapid readability was a challenge and a half, but I'm very very pleased with the end result.
