An arbour on fire wasn’t going to enough for the final cover for The Audacity Gambit, but painting some flowers worked better than expected.
One of the more truly exciting things for me in any project is the packaging and design aspect. As a present to myself, I’m spending some on the cover.
I’ve up and redesigned my portfolio site. It’s in a style that I like, but other people might hate. Eh. My business cards are now obsolete, but really the stylings I had before are, like, a precursor to the style there now, y’know—art historically (faintly, I’m sure, but I don’t mind). Anyway, if you see something broken or stupid, let me know. Below is a screenshot of the opening page. I likes it. There’s more tinkering to be done (the “Shop” button does nothing), but pretty much there it is.
If you don’t get it right off, it actually probably reflects positively on you. (above shot by Chase) Had I guessed that other people cared about the Joker’s socks in Dark Knight, I would have done some Google before mapping out the pattern myself. I am wickedly proud that it’s tileable though, and (I think) each colour is represented an even number of times. I am a nerd.
