web site

the main site is designed and coded by me, writing html & css, figuring it out as I go along. If you find any broken stuff, please tell me about it.

the updates page and the store are powered by the sweet WordPress blogging platform, which I highly recommend.

there used to be a note here about how I would encourage you to learn html & css & make your own website, but five years later it's a little less applicable: there are some decent wordpress portfolio templates and other possible cheap/free ways for artists to get their work up on the internet fast (faster than it takes to make your own durn website, at least). I would still encourage people to not be scared of the logic of html/css, it's pretty fun & challenging & interesting... but there might be better / more efficient ways to have a web presence & get back to drawing or playing music or whatever you like to do.

that said, here are some of the web resources I used to learn html & make this site! good luck have fun!

web site design tutorials & resources:

crucial open-source software downloads:

crucial add-ons for Firefox:

  • FireBug
  • hides out in the bottom border of the browser & lets you inspect & debug your pages, as well as investigating how other web sites use structure & layout.

  • Web Developer
  • multi-functional toolbar to test, measure, outline, validate, etc...
