Mondaily with a big project finished!


I sat down today to figure out how much of a headache doing what I wanted to the coloring book order page was going to be. I figured it was going to be a monster problem; it was learning new skillsets, and there were a whole lot of ricky-ticky uploads that were going to have to be done to get it all updated - and I knew that the structure I was working with was a little questionable to begin with. I thought it might take a few days, if I could solve the problems at all, and just planned to poke a little and try to get a sense of the workload so I could prioritize my to-do list and break it into parts.

And, being SUPER WOMAN (today, at least), I did the whole thing.

Each coloring book now has a full pop-up gallery, with the page previews and sampler page preview (if it has one) and a bunch of colored samples and whatever else I had lying around that applied. I sorted through about a hundred, maybe a hundred and a half, various images, and gave the coloring book admin page a bit of a facelift while I was at it, and solved a few problems that had been bugging me, and BAM. http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/coloringbooks.php

(It doesn't look different from that page, but click on any of the coloring books and marvel! Fishtank Fantasies is particularly impressive.)

If you have colored versions of your own, I'd love to include them in our galleries! Just PM or email them to me in the usual ways.

I still need to redo the landing page of EMG proper, but that is a big weight off my shoulders.

This weekend I also got a GREAT start on two art pieces that aren't due for a long while, and I... uh... may have a First Friday show THIS Friday that I am pinch-hitting for. (Fortunately, I have a show in a box, basically ready to hang at the drop of a hat.) I may not attend the official event in person, things depending. More details as they develop.

In other news, locals, you can now find the Wildflowers of Alaska coloring book in the Bear Gallery! (Upstairs in the round building at Alaskaland. Er, Pioneer Park.)

Now I'm off to fry up some leftover bread pudding for Guppy and I, and then start making au gratin potatoes for dinner. It is a rainy, gloomy day, and I will be glad to get up from the computer for a bit.
