At the moment it's all static with the requisite marketing foo-fah. Lots left to do of course but I couldn't just leave it as it has been for months.

Priorities are:

  • Mailing list working and new members sign up - so I can let the poor souls already signed up know what's going on

  • Conversion to CMS - esp. news updates so people visiting can see that it's actually being developed after all this bloody time.

  • Comments & guestbook - that little space next to the logo - that's where it will go (in 600px width version) once it's working

  • Galleries - should probably be a higher priority but I don't know how difficult it will be to incorporate. I anticipate the main problem will be fitting in thumbnails

  • Larger resolution (800px) version - with detection and cookies. Eventually this will incorporate members and Flash detection

x other stuff x
x Jess Sea seems to think I should do an article about artist's resources around the city - after a conversation about what are some good art supply stores. I'm actually thinking a series of them might be better. There's potentially tons of info there..

Also - I might have to re-scan my slides of my older stuff. I think I may have lost the original files and the jpegs now look like shit. I wonder if jpeg degrades over time. I don't remember these images looking so bad before but if I plan to use them in Flash, they're just not going to work..

x Jess -- added photography & painting galleries although it's still old stuff - better than nothing.

I am departing for Bellevegas for a few days but will try to continue updating from there. Best of luck to Sea and his homiez on "Man Weekend"

Behave. And don't make a mess. no

lol

[Naturually I'll still be checking in on here but I don't plan to spend too much time on the computer.]

x Jess Added better and more images to painting gallery. Added illustration and graphics as well. Still have one graphic thing left to add (that I can think of, anyway..)

Next should be web design and then I think I can sacrifice the other sections until I have everything converted to the CMS. I have to start working on the flash version again at some point soon..

x Jess added web design section and made the layout a little more compatible lengthwise to higher resolutions. It's a temporary measure until I get the templates going and can write some fancy javascript to make it scalable.

Blah blah blah like anybody cares.... lol

Ok, I've added a Works in Progress gallery (linked from Paintings) and a resume in PDF (I'll do a better bio and CV later)

x Jess That's okay.. It's been very slow in development and still is. I still need to make everything dynamic but that all really depends on Sea, since I don't have time to reinvent his wheel. Maybe someday...

I agree with Sea about art supplies news. Awesome idea.

x Jess I'm gonna have to wait until I have $ to start buying supplies because any knowledge I have is at least 5 yrs old. Plus I'm going to have to start using up the supplies I have. But I can start it now because I should be looking for framing materials soon.

Although art supply stores typically sell them pre-made. This could open up a whole other can of worms..

x Jess Added some rather embarassing video and multimedia stuff (what I could, anyway.. Some of it is archived on discs somewhere in this mess.)

I also have a crapload of digital photos that are waiting to go up but they're in the database and I was hoping to have had the backend working weeks ago.

This is why events are such an enormous waste of time and energy. It makes getting other more important things done nearly impossible. hmm

x Jess Mailing list subscriptions now working!

The little form off the home page also works - but the login still doesn't. There's nothing to log in for anyway.

...Something I've been meaning to get around to and set up a mailing list for a client today so I figured I should do mine, too.

Now I should probably send out some messages to my list sometime. Hahah..
