Website Update

Happy 2013 to everybody!! I find December to be a hard month to work in the studio due to holiday distractions, so I focused this round on a website update. Very overdue, to be certain.

My first thought was to switch to a Wordpress website, so I dutifully spent hours looking at themes and finally plunked down my dollars to buy one. Of course, being an original, artistic type, I didn't want what everybody else had, so I purchased something less common. Almost immediately it caused me grief, when I couldn't get it to behave properly on mobile devices. Yes, my note to the theme author was answered fairly promptly, but the notion that I would have to abide indefinitely by such arbitrary choices as no capitals in my filenames sent me back to the drawing board.

Eventually, I decided to go back to writing my own HTML, and just learn what I need as I go. So I pared down the website to a minimum and started in again. Slowly, slowly, bits and pieces are getting ported over to the new look, although all the old glass and fiber work is present albeit hidden. HTML and CSS are getting less formidable.

But now that 2013 has arrived, it's time to move back into the studio and start working on the major goals of the new year. So, please, leave me feedback on the new site and stay tuned for more updates.
