Jaxxon Firefox Persona

Use Firefox? Like Jaxxon? I made a cheerful persona using the Jaxxon from my ‘How to Draw Jaxxon’ tuorial on starwars.com

This is a pre launch note

For those of you who are coming to the new web site early (Due to testing or other reasons), hi and welcome!

I’m just about ready to launch the site. My old art will still be available through the old images directory for the time being (But the thumbnail folders will be gone) and I’m going to be keeping some of my old pages up with redirects for google, or, even better, a custom 404 page.

There will probably be some bugs and glitches as the sitr goes live, but this is way way overdue. So hey! Awesome, new site, lovingly crafted in wordpress.

For those who are curious (And are coming in after the site is open) here is what I used:

  • WordPress 2.7
  • NextGen Gallery
  • Lightbox 2.0
  • Photoshop and Illustrator
  • Dreamweaver
  • cgtextures.com
  • A ton of inspiration from CSS Zen Garden
  • Three solid years of getting my CSS skills to the level that I can pull this off

If you’re viewing the site in Internet Explorer 6, you’re going to have some bugs. Anything that isn’t easily fixed by me will be ignored as I am phasing out support of IE6 on any personal sites I make. Great alternatives to IE 6 are below:

  • Firefox (Will work on your old Windows 2000 machine, too, if that’s what’s keeping you from upgrading!)
  • Google Chrome
  • Opera
  • Internet Explorer 8 (As loathe as I am to praise Microsoft, it’s a very good browser and I give them kudos for it)

If you’re stuck on IE6 because you have some IT people who won’t upgrade, I’m sorry you’re stuck with an ancient insecure browser. Try to petition your IT people to upgrade to one of the browsers above for security reasons or to allow you to use an install of one of the above.

Thanks for stopping by the new site!
