Taking a WordPress Class this Term


I finally am taking a WordPress class this term at PCC and I can’t be more excited! I will be making a LOT of back end changes to my site, maybe some front end we shall see. I am trying to get my SEO back up to snuff. Unfortunate when you Google my name I am no longer #1, which is sad :(.

Anyway I am learning a TON of new stuff and I cannot wait to implement it on my site.


Coding is like a Spoiled Child

Well I find myself again, pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to make certain code to work.

And really my issue is with inheritance of CSS. I had a <header> with an <img> then a <p>, and then 3 more <img>s. I had them all in the same selector. I wanted the first <img> to be to the left, the <p> next to it, then the other 3 <img>s to the right. Easy? No. The 3 <img>s where inheriting the style from the first <img>, and no matter WHAT I did it wouldn’t stop.

I FINALLY on a whim was like, lets put these 3 <img>s into there own <div> under the <header>. BOOM. MAGIC.  I only figured this out after putting it away for a while. I dislike stopping when I am in a grove; I just like to get things done when I am working on them. So here are some sites I have been working on:

Also I finally picked up a small sketchbook and I am gonna MAKE myself draw in it at least once a day. I need, need, need, to get back into the habit of drawing. I use to fill up a sketchbook at least once a month, and since I started working I lost that habit. I have lost so much quality and detail. One of these days I need to take some sort of anatomy class or something. But anyway here she is:

Recently Updated

I wasn’t really meaning to work on my site today. I knew it needed to be done. I think it happened because I got onto a website updating tangent and then I started fixing errors, and, well four hours later my portfolio was updated.

Well it’s done in any case. I am pretty picky and kind of a perfectionist and I am not sure if I am ok with the “My Works” page, but there it is. Maybe down the road I will figure out what I really want to do with it.

I have a few projects that I need to finish, other that that the site should be current with my recent works.


Drastic WordPress Overhaul

So I had a good chat with my older brother about my website and helped me to realize that the previous version was not achieving what it needed to. Like it wasn’t actually showing my art; I was focusing TO much on functionality (some times a fault for me) and not the design. I sometimes need a good kick in the right hemisphere of my brain. So here it is.

I am actually much more happy with it because it matches my biz card. Anyway, enjoy :)
