I've been wanting to update my website for a while. For one thing, my life has changed some recently: I've had a couple of different jobs in the past year that switched my focus. But also, the old Wordpress template was getting tired, and I knew I had to update it.
I brushed up my HTML and CSS skills to work on something new, but coding the site took too much time out of making design & illustration content for it. Finally I had to admit to myself that I needed some kind of template, or else my portfolio would never be updated.
In comes Squarespace: something more mobile-friendly, intuitive, and geared towards artists like me who need a clean portfolio.
As a mini update, here's an illustration WIP I'm working on right now:
I've been adding to my illustration skills recently, in part because it's something I'm passionate about but also because I'd gotten a little tired of staring at stock photos and fonts all day.
This particular illustration has been a fun way to relax as well as work.
I've also been:
- studying UX design with the Interaction Design Foundation
- working on a query novel again
- ...and a whole lot more I hope to be able to share soon!
