July 24, 2009 - Splash damage

I doubt most of the people who’ve found my blog realise the history of pretty-but-useless splash pages. Essentially, the original purpose of this site was to display my current ‘cool thing’ that I’d created. It’s actually a huge passion of mine and great fun to knock something up in a few hours that looks really nice and is uncomplicated and pretty much pointless. I suppose that fits the bill of ‘art’ – thankfully I’m not so pretentious that I’d label it under that banner!

Anyway, after a major hiatus, I’ve created a new ‘splash page’ (for that is all that it is, and will likely ever be) for the online gaming clan I’ve been a member of for 10 years:

Really, there’s nothing to discover, it’s exactly what you see. I’d love to have the patience and the skill to work on something akin to Windosill but alas it doesn’t slake my desire to see instant results. If you’d like to see some of my previous splash screens, you can view them here.

I hope you enjoy these little bits of my history – I’m hugely proud of all of them, and they serve to really show how I’ve come along in my profession as a web designer.

P.S. I’ve spent the night drinking Leffe Blonde and listening to Devin TownsendZiltoid the Omniscient – awesome 😀

July 7, 2009 - Progress…

… or lack thereof! Sorry about that, but I’ve been incredibly busy with work recently and I simply haven’t had time to work on my own stuff. I promise in the next few weeks to start releasing some less vaporous material!

Now, back to the grindstone…
