NEW HEADER!!!

Finally, after over 3 years of doing this weblog thing, this place finally feels like it's mine! The illustration of me is a somewhat cleaner version of a sketch I whipped up. Having liked what I did, I still decided to do an even cleaner, inked-up version of moi. Then I put it to a vote. It seems that the sketchier version was more "me" (thanks, Dan), so that's what I went with (I agreed.). As you can see, I decided to use Hellenic Wide, my favorite display typeface, for the title.
Many thanks to the folks at gigposters.com for voting, and super-duper extra thanks to Ward Jenkins for showing me the ropes code-wise. Whatta guy!

Yes! You finally did some home improvements!

I'm gathering photos together so I can make like a rotation of banners. I was gonna have a different one each month and then forgot about it.

That's a good idea.
It would be cool to have a rotating bunch of them like Jeff would like to have for SFG, especially if they change everytime you refresh the site. That'd be super.

The Designers Who Blog site does that. I should figure out how it's done. Ah well. Kudos! Come to think of it, when I changed up in December I asked Ward for advice, too ... the poor, helpful soul.
