Major Overhaul of the Site in Progress

What the heck happened to my site?! Well, in an effort to kick my butt in gear, and force myself to reorganize and redesign my site.

I've stripped out the look-and-feel elements and will slowly be working on applying an automated system of templates. I will also be deleting and or rearranging sections to help reign in some of the urban sprawl of my site architecture. This is a bit of an experiment. It's somewhat unsual to put the design process of a site out in the open. This should be interesting... check back soon for updates.

My Flash cartoon, The Ajenda Creativity Engine, won first place (category: Entertainment/Games) in Chicago's Association for Multimedia Communication's first annual FlashFest. Second place in this category went to Rick Carton's (of Carton Cartoons) ultra-slick video for the band Cane Corso, which went on to win Best of Show. My personal favorite was Kate O'Leary's portfolio site Dog and Pony Show.

This site is creeping into the twenty-first century. I have begun the translating the code for all these pages to XHTML and have completely separated style from content with a <table> free, CSS layout!

The Scholl Family Art Show

My wife, Wika, and I had artwork on display in this exhibition back in October of 2001. The show was made up of various students, faculty, and their spouses from Dr. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago, which use to be located at the corner of Oak and Dearborn in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood.

After much trial and error I have retooled how Flash animations are inserted into my web pages. There were problems with animations not appearing on Macs or in Opera 5. If you have Flash 4 and still cannot view the movies drop me a line and please let me know what browser and platform you are using.
