Casting my net a little further – writing, art and e-motion

Photographer Matthew Mahon’s Fab Flash site

Imaginative, innovative and fun, Matthew Mahon’s site gives a great food for thought about how to present a portfolio of work and professional details on the web. The photos and odd bits of life’s detritus dotted around the place are also buttons and many contain lovely surprises. I particularly liked the animated way he interacts with his photos and the Matthew Puppet.

Experimenting with Header Image

I’ve designed my own header image, but I’m not sure I’m entirely happy with it. A darker version may look better. I produced some alternative designs yesterday, so I may change it. All the designs layer a number of organic lattices together in Photoshop Elements – but now I come to think about it, the image ought to include a technological lattice too. After all, that’s what this network is all about, connecting living organisms through technology. So back to the digital drawing board.

A note on Performancing For Firefox
I’m writing this in PFF, which I’m finding very convenient and user friendly. A very clear interface and lots of useful features.
