Welcome to my new portfolio of illustrations, animations and interactive design. This site represents the latest incarnation of an evolving portfolio and understanding of web design.

Each iteration has been a way to experiment with new technologies.

My first site was an elaborate Flash-based virtual Viewmaster. Since then I've created table-based HTML sites, abandonded tables for CSS, and hosted a couple of WordPress sites.

My last site was built as a Node Express web application using a Google Spreadsheet to supply the data.

The new solution

My current approach is to host the site using Jekyll and GitHub pages.

Jekyll provides a simple solution for baking out a static site. GitHub Pages allows for a simple and fast way to host the site.
