I think I like the picture BUT I can only see half of it.

Maybe next time try to manually resize your pics in the blogger editor or just upload it directly with blogger uploader so your picture fits inside the post, and doesnt get cut off.

We sadly only get half your artworks sometimes.

Great first submission! Love the girl drawing. How was she created?

Thanks Craig. Was in a hurry to get that out before a meeting. Can I request considering a wider format? 500 px width for a visually based blog like this one would be imo a good thing.

Peter, the girl's just like the others - photoshop brushwork. Not completely on top of these brushes... just made 'em.

David- Though the increase in width would be great, I picked this exact width due to it being the maximium for a minimum monitor.

After a lot of research, sadly this is the most I can pull off so our whole blog and its great visuals don't get cut off on lower end monitored computers...

There is a debate on collapsing the left sidebar onto the right. If that goes through we'll increase the post size.

It looks quite fitting!

Unrelated observation: comment moderation is gone.

Really cool David, nice work! I should get started on one of these...

Albertonykus: We've turned off comment moderation for the first 3 days a post is up.

In doing this one, a comparison with public service campaigns occurred to me, which advert creatives often do under normal wage rates - in exchange for creative freedom. Of relevance because it could easily be a source of conflict between artists - those who "destroy the prices" and those who only work at rate. This piece took 4 hours, btw, as confirmed by my time tracker.

This is wonderful, thanks so much. it is jsut the kind of thing I had in mind: simple, clean, bright, bold, fun, and expressive. It clearly shows the logo and the address and makes it clear what the site is for.

Hoping for more. Thanks David and the ART E crew.
