The aesthetics or art style of these little Apple developer avatars are completely hideous. They look like some low-rent CGI prototypes that even the SyFy Channel would reject. There's also something subtly creepy about them. I guess they appeal to Zoomers, but I can't see how.

what really bothers me about them is that it looks like a Fetal Alcohol Syndrome filter applied to an xbox avatar. which is kinda insensitive.
