Another new website layout

I think it's getting to be about time for another layout change on this website.

I've been doing a fair amount of design work on the Cornerstones of Trust website and will be meeting with the San Juaqine Sheriffs Association next month to do some volunteer work on their website.

For my own website, I kind of want to have a media/news style where you get headers and story previews on the main page along with media without having to scroll.

As another friend put it, I want to get more information "Above the fold".

New Website simple template

I've been spending the last several evenings working on a new simple template for my website based on the Zen template. I finally got it looking the mostly the same in all web browsers. Including Internet explorer versions 8 and 9. Since even Microsoft doesn't support Internet Explorer 6, I'm going to stop trying to get it to work in that version even though I know several corporations that still use version 6.

I'm definitely interested in feedback on the template which is now live. But please use an web browser other than IE6.

Just a wheel, ...so far

so I began painting in photoshop again today, and this is what I have so far, it's a wheel with a 6 spoke rim. I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to put it on yet, possibly a racecar or some such thing I'm losing my ability to see straight currently so I'm going to take a rest. Seems I need a better tablet and steadier hand. Using photoshop like this is really more like painting than drawing, in either case, I need more practice.

New Tablet and Artwork

So last night I got a new digitizing tablet for my computer and started playing with it.

It took me a little bit to get the latest drivers installed, as they wouldn't run from the CD on Windows 7, so I downloaded them and ran them directly.

Once they were loaded, things started going more smoothly.

Note, windows 7 did recognize the tablet right away, but the input wasn't smooth.

Here is one of the first drawings I made with the Tablet
