    Michael Fräse is a dear friend of mine, he’s a mentor and one of my all-time favorite artists . He has motivated me when I felt like giving up, spoken words of wisdom that ring in my ears every time I pick up a brush – every time I consider a new painting. Our mutual admiration has extended to the technological side of our work, and with that we have been working together, alongside E.Webscapes to create a working gallery to display his paintings in an appropriate environment.

    If you can imagine, my blogging friends, creating 197+ blog entries in 12 hours or less, you’ll know what my day was like yesterday. Lisa coded up the stylesheets a few months ago, and I’ve been working on the content, plugins, and tweaking the code as needed. My carpel tunnel caused me excruciating pain lastnight, I couldn’t even type an open bracket for code without letting out a gasp in pain. I slept with my wrist brace on lastnight, and it feels better today – although I’ll have to make it a short day on the keyboard to fully recoup.

    For now, and I have a lot of work to do yet, please browse over to Michael’s new website. His work is beautiful and inspiring. It should be a couple of days before I post the final screenshot and add him to my completed project list – but I couldn’t wait, worked too hard yesterday to not share what I’ve been working on! You’ll be able to order prints directly from him later this week if you’re interested, too.

    JtGND – Inspiring Blog Design

    During the creation of the main theme for Nicole’s website, we explored the option of using an image other than the one I illustrated for her blog. Ultimately, I was able to work up a design incorporating that illustration – but at the same time she fell in love with the second concept and decided to go for both. So, that’s what she’s got, both!

    I just love how celestial, peaceful and heavenly this design looks on her website. I think it fits with her calm and loving nature. Stop over and have a look at the full-sized live version, and let her know how you like it!

    What have I been doing? Well go on over to Sunny’s new WordPress blog and have a look! (She’s moved from blogspot, and brought all of her posts and comments with her! Yahoo!)

    She’s Crunchy, and sleek, and carries a Blackberry and a Briefcase! Sunny ordered up two designs, and one custom illustration. I illustrated the girl on the main theme for her, and built the design around the girl. Whew!

    You can flip over to her second theme, Crunchy Elephant, in the sidebar.

    This one is very yellow, very fun, and very Elephant-y, with a tie-dye twist! No custom illustrations on that one, it’s full of creative and customized graphics, though! Stop over at Sunny’s place and have a look around!

    Finished up another design lastnight (and this morning), this one is for Carolyn over at A Prairie View. She’s got a few themes to choose from, so if you get there and would like to use this one as the default, select the theme titled “EW A Prairie View”.

    Another cute blog, to match another cute blogger! Go say hello, if you haven’t already met Carolyn you’re missing out, she couldn’t be sweeter!

    Nicole over at Just The Girl Next Door ordered up a design for the main entrance to her domain to go with her blog. She wanted it to tie together, and she thought it would be really cool to use all or part of the illustration I did for her blog on the new portal to her website. Well, I did it! It took some time and finagling but it’s up, running, and cute as heck if you ask me!

    Go on over to Nicole’s place and take a peek!

    I just completed a design for Whiskey Talking that he won in EWebscapes New Year Blog Design Giveaway!

    I had so much fun conjuring up his design. The challenge was that he’s a man. A funny, irish man to boot. He even writes well, and he’s just downright cool to know. I think his new skin really matches his personality, so go on over and have a read, tell me I’m right! Better yet, tell HIM!
