...and what a year it was!

Photo

This will be my last post for 2006. Think of this caricature as a big full stop on what has been a wonderful and exciting first chapter of my blogging experience.

I started this blog back in March (which feels like a lifetime ago now) and during that time I've had a blast molding this blog into something I'm quite proud of. Your constant, generous comments and emails have made it all worth while and I greatly appreciated every one of them.

I hope you all have a great holiday break, and rest assured I'll be chomping at the bit to get back into blogging in 2007!

Thanks again,

Chris Wahl

I've had at least one smile on my face each day since I found your blog, still making my way through it all, Well Done!
Quick question... I'm still fumbling my way through photoshop and haven't worked out a good inking brush, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Have a Merry xmas and a great New Years.

smartartist- I just use the basic hard brush for inking in Photoshop. Just make sure your tablet settings are configured.

Did it with photoshop right?
I admire your skill with the pencil, and how clear and good your lines are.

Allso, I added your blog to my link thing that's on the right side of my blog :)

90% brushpen and 10% photoshop.

Hey Chris, my question is off the topic, but I was wondering: I'm not very good with html. How did you get your title to be an image? I have one I want to use on my own blog but I can't figure out how to do it.

Blogger FlukeLogic said...

Never mind, I figured it out.

Blogger Chris Wahl said...

Pat- I see you got your custom title up and running.

To get rid of the default blogger title text surrounding it, just find where it's located in the template (using preview each time you change something to see if it's the right line) and either delete it or change the colour of the text and borders to black.

Hey. I don't really have anyone to ask this, so if you don't mind.
Is there an easy way to put up a logobanner on top of my blog?

Thanks agian everyone!

Muffin- Hehe. The year started off pretty hectic with some urgent jobs to get out of the way, and now I'm just easing myself into blogging again. I'll have some new stuff to post very soon.

Skikaru- I imagine the task would be a lot easier with the new Blogger Beta. But I'll email you later with a quick rundown.
