Happy Holidays! and... Don't Panic I'll be fidgeting, fussing, and tweaking PaperCuts over the next couple days. After that, I plan on doing a refresh of the rest of my website too. If things look weird, I'm probably just testing something out, so please try to ignore it. If the blog explodes, hopefully I'll be able to fix it soon.

So, why redesign? Other than the fact that I'm just tired of that off-white background? PaperCuts has been running for almost 4 years now without any real changes. My art and my career path, on the other hand, have continued to evolve over that time. I'm doing more and more gallery shows these days, which is great. Less great is the fact that I can't always show the artwork as soon as it's done. So, the focus of the blog has slowly changed, and I would like it to reflect that change. I would also like to have my artwork be the first thing visitors see when they come to the site, followed by announcements and then longer articles.

And that's just the blog. The portfolio section is a whole other thing to ponder.

Hopefully, the changes I make will address a few of the shortcomings that have developed. Hopefully.

Please let me know if you have any thoughts or ideas. If you love or hate the changes.

Thanks for your patience, and hopefully this transition will glide along smoothly.
