I’m currently working on redesigning and programming Truman’s Agricultural Science website.
Their current website can be found at http://agriculture.truman.edu

I posted sketches of the design a month or so ago.

These are screenshots of the live website.. I have the homepage done and one secondary page done. Now, the time consuming part is to create all the secondary pages.

I implemented transparent PNG graphics on the homepage, so the dark brown logo is semi-transparent and is layered above the photograph which changes on refresh.

The Z-Index which is basically the layering of text and/or images in CSS/HTML is used to make the logo graphic on top of the photographs.

It’s just like layers in Photoshop, it has the same pros and cons, except layers in CSS require a lot more technical knowledge.

I was bored this evening, so I decided to pull out my old Anatomy book for Drawing II and draw some stuff from it. This was originally done by Hans Baldung, who is a famous Printmaker.

I recently scanned in some sketches I did back in December of 2005. I had been looking through a lot of books that had old drawings by the Renaissance Artist and just resketching them with my own style. I was also into expressive markmaking.

I have some really old drawings of cars that I did in High School. I’m thinking about inking them and adding some color to them via Photoshop and my Wacom tablet.
