My Portfolio!

I’ve been needing (and meaning) to make a portfolio site to show off my work – both creatively and industrially for a while now. I’ve had a barely-used subdomain for uploading art to for a while that served as a gallery, kinda. I use flickr, so the wordpress-installed-sub was almost never used.
Last night, I realized that I could actually use that for my portfolio and I wouldn’t have to go through the whole process of setting everything up again. The domain was already a little perfect (artist.kieryking.com) or at the very least, useable. Thus began hours of theming and tweaking and uploading and screenshot-taking and copywriting for my portfolio that didn’t come to an end until about 20 minutes ago.
I’m pleased because it works on so many levels – I offer services as a wordpress-website-setter-upper (okay, I call myself a website administrator, because I do a bit more than designing, but a smidgen less than developing – as I use frameworks that already exist. Basically, I just don’t know what to call myself that better suits what I do.) So it only made sense to use a wordpress install and a theme I spent hours perfecting and editing code to showcase my skill, my experience, my projects, and my art (shops).

For future ease, I’ve added the link to my portfolio in the navigation¬†– so if you’d like to see what I do as far as web administration, art, film, and my book, it’s all there, with links!
 

Sluggish

I thought I was tired yesterday. I’m beginning to think that I need the sun to like, live and stuff.
I can’t seem to muster up the energy to do much of anything. I did play World of Warcraft until the lag or connection or something overtook it and I was wandering around Azshara waiting for snipers to come out of trees and they never did, and my companion stopped following me, it wasn’t until I tried to exit my machine 30 minutes later that I realized something must not be working right.
It’s that kind of day. My brain is slow.
So, I went on a walk, and came back and decided I didn’t want to make soup for dinner after all, and I didn’t want to do the dishes, and I didn’t have the energy to paint (seriously, the last time there was a *glimpse* of sun was sometime last week) because it would involve doing dishes so I could clean my palette. ¬†Although, I did come up with a brilliant idea of *what* to paint when my energy returns to me.
The golden snitch! It’s yellowish. When I paint again, and consequently, use my last canvas – I want to paint something bright…and Harry Potter related. The Snitch is perfect for that.
I’ve spent the time since then on Pinterest -where I’ve been finding cool artistic things and pinning them. I have a board for things to inspire me, and things that I like, and house things, and cool things. I’ve had way too much fun with it – you can even follow me here:¬†http://pinterest.com/kiery/
Lastly, dinner is frozen steak fajitas from TGI Friday’s, because…….I’m freezing, tired, and neither of us feel like actually cooking.
