The last 48 hours or so, I have been chucking a whole pile of new web, logo, illustration and t-shirt projects at the Illustrative Portfolio section. Even took some time to rewrite the CodeIgniter PHP files to optimize their indexing and output. Now, instead of having to manually add each thumbnail and larger image reference by hand, I can simply upload new examples to specified folders and magically, new samples show up on the Portfolio page. Yummy.
There are some other updates I am planning to unleash very soon, including several project case studies that will contain in-depth details, initial sketches and design iterations. There will also be a bit of an update to the layout of the contact form to improve its overall functionality/appearance.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
Note: If you happen to be one of those cool people using the fantastic Cooliris Firefox plugin, I went ahead implemented their technology on the Illustrative portfolio page to improve your experience. Yay!
Special thanks to:
Joe Schneider (Long time friend and Mac-ist) for continually fixing my contact form, even thought I continually keep breaking it with my attempts at being cool.
Joshua Kendall (Twitter follower) for fixing a CodeIgniter 1.7.1 path issue. Now all of those “random design” banners are loading up just as intended.

- Attack on the Red Tower, Part 1
- It has been weeks, nigh on a month, since my initial reconnaissance on the red tower. Last night, I was finally able to break through the first line of defense, a rock army triple deep with ghost sentinels, dismembered ghouls and gigantic beasts of unbelievable forms. After making it through, I established contact with my ...
