Illustration Friday - Discovery

A few years ago we vacationed in Maine. While we were there we took the kids to a big tide pool. There were thousands of tiny little things to discover there. The longer you look the more you see. And although I didn't actually see this little fish, I bet he was there some where.

Sprucing Up My Website with Dreamweaver

I used to be a Unix C programmer, so I'm used to programming stuff the old-fashioned (i.e. hard) way. And I'm a cheap-skate and didn't want to spend lots of money on some new fangled website building software. But coding and editing my website in Notepad was getting to be a huge drag, so I finally broke down and purchased Dreamweaver recently.

It took me a few days to figure the darn thing out. Okay, I wouldn't say I actually have it figured out yet. That would be an over statement. But I can at least make it do something which is a step in the right direction. And best of all the song "Dreamweaver" has stopped running through my head everytime I open the program.

With Notepad it was such a pain in the fanny to make a change to my site that I only did it when I felt it really necessary. But now... I'm addicted. I can't quit playing with it. Hmmm, maybe Dreamweaver wasn't such a great idea after all. Next... Flash!

It's Done!

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted. I've been drawing and painting my little tushy off lately. But today I officially finished the artwork for If a Monkey Jumps Onto Your School Bus Yay! I sent all the artwork on it's way this afternoon.

As soon as I update my website I'll post more information about the book and it's availablity. That's another reason why I haven't been blogging, I've been trying to teach myself Dreamweaver. I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of it.
