…is this thing on?

Apparently so!

Right, time to replace the lorem ipsum with some actual text. So I’ll start by answering the basic question: why this site?

Briefly, I decided it was time I tried to take my art & design work more seriously, and that trying for a bit more (and more formal) exposure would help that.

Everything is my own work – the logo’s done with a digital camera and the Gimp. The font used is True Golden, from Scriptorium – it’s based on William Morris’s Golden Type, which he used to set News from Nowhere and other works around the same time. The only other software I used preparing things is Scribus, an open source desktop publishing program – I try to use free open source software where I can.
