I decided that I needed a logo for my chess.com account. I’d just watched the movie 300. And since I’m also a javelin thrower, I decided to combine my favorite hobbies of javelin and chess into one image.
Thanks to Bivas (@Sobisss on Freelancer) for designing my logo for me. Here is a link to his Freelancer account.
Psyching my opponents out
It appears that my new logo has aided in psyching out or distracting my opponents a little bit. Or given me some kind of a mental edge as I gained around 100 blitz rating points soon after changing my profile picture.
My old profile picture
This picture of a large rabbit has served me well for 4 years since I created my chess.com account.
