Everyone goes through and experimental phase

Ok, I’ve been sorting through a vast variety of WordPress themes and trying them out, it’s hard to find something that suits all your preferences at once. I’ll probably try another one soon again, but I thought this was pretty, and I felt a bit girly, so there you go.

I just feel like I have been fiddling around with the style sheets so much on my previous themes, using the “trial and error” method, not really knowing what will work or not until I’ve tried it and it’s gone horribly wrong.

All in all there is a lot of new voodoo-virtual-digital-gadgety things going on in my life right now, and I enjoy it all very much. Some things just get to you, get stuck, seeps into your skin and brain, and after a while you don’t really remember what it was like before all that (like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Reader, and so on). You sort of get used to being hooked up with virtual crack AllThe Time. Especially if you make it easier for yourself by getting an Android phone, and a tiny Netbook, and better connection all in all.

Also, I’m trying to get some different widgets to work, among them the Flickr widget, but no such luck I’m afraid. Would be nifty to be able to post a flickr directly from the WordPress Dashboard, but I haven’t figured it out yet. So for now this embedded photostream will have to do:

Templates

Templates.com blog postar många intressanta saker om webdesign och digital grafik, så väl som rätt många bra tips och trix.

Jag har länge varit dragen till estetiken runt steampunk. Återigen kan jag tacka nätet för allt fantastiskt man kan hitta! Lyckligtvis har Steampunk nu blivit en slags trend så man kan ju hoppas att det sprider sig in i modevärlden till exempel ;)

Hur som, grym grafik, länkar till intressanta portfolios, so much goodness: here.

 

Bouncing around

OK, today’s catch while surfing around:

Through Jonathan Carroll’s Twitter I found this, Paintalicious.org, a blog with loads of interesting graphics. One post mentions Michelle Arakujo, her webpage and her blog.

Her works draw heavily upon children’s stories, characters with fantastically imaginative narratives that depict the qualities that make people unique. She’s influenced by Tim Burton, Walt Disney, Miyazaki, Kay Nielsen, Klimt, fairytales, performance art, vintage photography, music, literature, animation, silent cinema and world cultures.
