I love learning new css tricks that solve layout problems. Creating a row of boxes that are squares at any size with a border. The trick is in the padding, this blog post led me in the right direction.

That’ll do it! Eureka!
Recently had a client who had full access to WordPress, but couldn’t access a couple of forms. Clicking on the edit post link launched a modal stating the Form was locked and in use by “User”, trying to request access provided no results. Next I logged the user out of the CMS, no luck. Thanks to this blog post, just deactivating Gravity Forms and Reactivating the plugin solved my issue. Turns out there is a transient cache, that doesn’t get cleared.
Back to painting, couple years later!
Painted a quick step by step illustration for my 4 year old daughter, she loved it!
Painting class tonight, created this 8×10 still life in under 3 hrs.
Here’s a quick painting for spring, just a lonely carrot.
Finally got a chance to sit down and paint, must make this a more common occurrence. Here’s a quickie, 3 hr oil painting. Yes, the big white blob is cauliflower.
I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time now. Nothing could be worse then opening a coworkers work files only to find they were created in Fireworks. Good Riddance!
Interesting roundup of techniques for displaying table data responsively. Having a lot of clients in automotive related industries requires at times the need to display fairly large tables. These will definitely come in handy.

I’ve spent the last year developing sites using wordpress as a cms. I spend a lot of time copying and pasting code from previous projects to new development sites. So here I will attempt to create a css/sass framework them using Gumby. Why Gumby, well, I just wanted to start somewhere. I could have started with Bootstrap, but using Less doesn’t seem the way to go. Gumby uses Sass and I’ve got a working knowledge of the preprocessor. So here it goes. Day One.
I’m going to call it something cheesy like “Gumpress”… blah…
Today, one of my clients launched www.mediashepherd.com. This site aims to help those in publishing find resources they may want or need that may be difficult to find. This site is built using wordpress and yields many customizations. Look for more to come.
Lazy day on the deck, quick sketch of an Adirondack Chair!
Found this Old school camera cleaning out the mother in laws house. Pretty cool, wonder if it still works. I imagine it would be hard to find Film.

As part of my portfolio website, I decided to make my brand a random monogram. Started sketching my “Y” in different styles. Here are the first 2. Ornamental script and Capital Swash. Now, off to digitize!
A great resource for some unique sketching material… http://www.thesmokinggun.com/mugshots
I like to peruse here and knock out a sketch.
Started my first app with bootstrap today, without reading the documentation it’s not to hard to get up and running with some basic styles. I’ve been trying out a few CSS frameworks, Zurb’s Foundation for one, and seem to like both. Below is a starting point for this internal application.
As one who has always been fascinated with old design techniques and craftsmanship, such as letterpress, this is extreme. Watch this documentary following David A. Smith has he creates the album artwork for John Mayer.
I guess that I am just a bit late to the boat, but have finally discovered Sass preprocessing. And, I love it! Using Sass is super easy and makes css development fun again. Just having the ability to create variables for your clients color schemes and call them throughout each file is worth it. Check it out if your not preprocessing your CSS. http://sass-lang.com
