Yes, it’s hard to believe that I design my own graphics for this site (and all my sites), but I do. Thank you, thank you. *applause*
Now, obviously I’m no designer, but I’ve come to love that little cartoon ‘me’ so much that I can’t have my site without it. And I remember in one of my posts where someone was insulting me and telling me how amateurish my designing was, where all I could think of was, ‘ya, that’s why I like it’. I drew it by hand, I modified it on my computer, and it has become the symbol for me. I love it.
I want it to look as amateurish as it does. I want it to be my own creation. And I’m pretty damned proud of the fact that I created something I like so much and am certainly unashamed of having it represent me.
So to all those who find my designs amateurish… thank you. I am an amateur. If they were more polished, I probably wouldn’t like them, and, after all, this site is for me.
