In an attempt to consolidate the surprisingly vast collection of my own personal artwork, I’ve been trying to account for each piece that I lent out on “storage” duty after we sold our house and moved abroad in the summer of 2003. I’ve managed to track down all but two pieces.
Update 9 March 2007: Both pieces are now accounted for.
A couple of weeks ago I promised that “next week” I’d be giving a tour of the changes to this site. Well, “next week” came and went—and then some—without much web-touristic joy. I suppose late is better than never. In any case here’s the gist of this post: I’ve changed the home page and added a few new sections: portfolio, texts, and info. I’ve also added site-wide navigation, and a site map. This may not seem like a lot, but hiding inside those two short sentences are over fifty pages of new content, and at least two hundred images. As always, you’re free to explore this new stuff on your own, or you can read further to find out more before you take the plunge.
I’m in Calgary this week, touring the city’s art galleries as part of two projects. One is the ongoing project of reacquainting myself with contemporary Canadian art. The second—and probably more important—project is to get a sense of which galleries are going to be a good fit for my work, prior to submitting my portfolio.
I spent most of November and December slaving away in the deep recesses of my web server. Aside from a few cosmetic changes, there have been some fairly significant structural changes that—if I’ve made them properly—are unlikely to be noticed. I was pretty much done with the updates before Christmas, but deciced not to make an announcement because it’s generally such a busy time. I figure that people are more likely to be spending quality time with friends and family over the holiday season than sitting in front of computers. I’m going to save the tour of the new content until next week. In the meantime, feel free to snoop around and discover what’s new around here. And if you find any bugs, let me know in the comments.
