– haven’t done much illustrating in a long while… using a .5 mm mechanical pencil on a 12×18 inch tracing paper is not really a good combination. just trying to get my hand/fingers used to drawing again. . . to be continued…the plan is to have a mixed media version of this (colored pencil/ink and a bit of photoshop) and also a vector version using Adobe Illustrator (to see if i can do a photorealistic vector illustration).
– this post would have included a video but my camera sucked. i hate it when you put up a different wallpaper on your phone, the aesthetic gets ruined by the clutter of apps/widgets that are on top of your background image (okay so, technically a background image should be just that…something in the background…). so this is what i ended up with: . while the other screens are still filled with apps/widgets, i tried simplifying the home screen while […]

other stuff: remixes of Tegan & Sara’s Alligator Suff Daddy : The Gin Diaries Twin Hype : Twin Hype The Mary Onettes : Islands also thinking about bringing the “mixes” page back (i removed it last year) mostly as an archive page of a few of the older podcasts i’ve made. trying to find a nice online player (js or flash) for the page.
– the “works” section on my homepage has been offline since May last year (when i redesigned everything). i’m not going to wait for me to learn how to make a full AS3 compliant flash portfolio. i’ll just steamroll through with a functional enough AS2 version for now. so far, i’ve gotten the top part done: . also spruced up the resume, which still looks minimal (new version on the left, old on the right):
– september 2008 header: / original 2007 header: / thought about switching back to a white background like from 2007. it would look like this: . also updated “about” in the sidebar, and made a graphic to link to my website (see SUBSECTION in the sidebar)…but it’s not really that much clearer than the old text link (haven’t built the redesigned site in flash yet).
i’ll probably have the blog header and homepage redesign done by the end of the week, then maybe take my time on the “work” (portfolio) section. version 1, which i first created in 2007, will no longer exist (although the old design and work can be seen in the create subsection of this blog)
