It’s like a new hat for Easter. Only geekier. The only thing missing is a big blowsy flower, at the upper left side, in the form of a new logo. I am, however, working with a wonderful new designer, who’s helping me get the pretty on. The finishing touches will follow shortly.
And there is where we must leave our hat. If I were feeling cleverer, and not quite so brain-fried from fiddling with code for the past week, I might be able to push the metaphor further. But that is really far as I can take the analogy this evening.
In a recent conversation with said designer, I realized that I needed to change a lot more around here than the logo. Namely, the colours, which I have never felt reflected my own taste or personality. I very much needed to change that, and the whole home page shuffle you’re seeing is all part of the making-stuff-for-me artistic process I’ve been banging on about in the podcast lately.
The colours may have changed, but everything that that you’ve been used to seeing is still here. There are just fewer pictures, which will make it a whole lot easier for me to post more often, and look, I’m on the front page! For some reason this pleases me enormously.
Also new, a profile of French artist, Marie Rose Lourtet; an amazing and truly inspirational woman whom I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to meet. You’ll find the story about her under Features, just up there. Do check it out.
And that’s it from me for a few days. I am starting early on a much-needed and, dare I say, well-deserved weekend of rest and relaxation, fiber frivolity, and passionate play. Oh. The alteration. I’m scaring myself now. I am very tired, and clearly in need of a little lie down.
