Now that we've sprung forward into spring, it's time to spiff up the 'ole blog. I finally changed my old avatar to this one. (something I've been meaning to do for like a year now!) I don't remember the last time I wore a headband and birds don't usually land on my hand, but other than that, it looks just like me! hee hee.
I also redid my banner, using my Happy Camper piece. I don't know why, but my banners always look a little blurry after I upload them to Blogger. I've tried all kinds of things to make this go away, but I've yet to figure it out. If anyone reading this has the magic formula, let me know!
I also deleted a really old Slide presentation that I had on my sidebar. I recently had a wake up call that caused me to think about what I'm putting out there for people to see. I forget that not everyone knows the difference between my old Photoshop work and my new Illustrator work. I recently received some feedback from someone in the Children's publishing world and one of their comments was regarding the style that I don't do anymore. It occured to me, they were probably looking at that slide show that had never been updated. Geez! I also need to go through my website and remove older work that doesn't reflect my new style. Now I know, it's better to have fewer strong pieces than a lot of work that may be cute, but not current to my way of working. Live and learn, huh?
