Web Design

I’ve got no training in web design, and definitely not in coding, so my recent tweaks to this website have been a steep learning curve. Any constructive feedback and/or tips from visitors here would be appreciated! Thanks & best wishes, Adam

Star Wars The Last Jedi

I made it to the minute past midnight showing on the first day of general release, as I also did for The Force Awakens (& BVS!), & am pleased I did.
I enjoyed some of the scenes with Luke so much I can forgive the movie for other scenes that just didn’t gel with me (riding on CGI space-horses springs to mind!).

There are definite niggles with this one though.

Moomin on the Moon

Finished this drawing of Moomin on the moon this evening. I think there’s more than a little of Gromit in Moomin’s expression here!
🙂

With much respect to Tove Jansson who created the moomins. Copyright of the Moomins remains with Tove Jansson’s family & this drawing was ‘fan-art’ for a present, not for profit 🙂

My daughter & I were lucky enough to see a great presentation & Q&A by Tove Jansson’s niece, Sophia Jansson, when we were at The Lakes Comic Art Festival this year. It was wonderful to find out more about the life & works of Tove Jansson & her fantastic Moomin legacy.

Web Site Tweaking

Have done some tweaking of this website this weekend. Shuffling around of pages. It took a while to find out how to change the ‘Home Page’ from ‘About’ to ‘Portfolio’ but I did it. The solution was hidden away in Settings—Reading. Thought I’d share that, as it took a while to find!
Haven’t figured out yet how to make the individual images in portfolio open up to full-screen when you click on them. It’s pretty much all a ‘work in progress’.

CYPORG & The Mystery of the Disappearing Twitter Impressions……

Fan art

I tweeted this last week, with hashtag of Cyporg, and within a couple of days (maybe thanks to a ‘like’ from Mark Hammil on Twitter) it had over 7,300 ‘impressions’ (views) showing on Twitter Analytics, so was showing as my most popular tweet of the month so far.
Bizarrely, 2 days ago, on Twitter Analytics the impressions showed as totalling 1,300, so over 6,000 had just ‘disappeared’. And this morning the total impressions of this tweet have dropped to 266! Curioser and curioser.

(update: back up to over 8,000 now. Just glitchy I guess.)

Thought Bubble

Thought Bubble is on in Leeds this weekend coming up, and I think it’ll be the first one me & my cool daughter WON’T be attending for the last 5 years… 🙁
We’ll be at Grandma’s in Newcastle Upon Tyne for her 70th birthday celebrations, so that will be really special but not being at Thought Bubble will seem strange.

It’s on at a new venue this year in the centre of Leeds rather than the Armouries: Sending best wishes to all the Thought Bubble crew, hope it goes well! 🙂

WordPress: hit the wall

I’ve not been on my site here for too long. I’ve got to the point where I think a WordPress support group could help me get over some of the techy barriers & blockages I feel impinged by.
Am keeping my eye out for a local group or some on-line resources.

Never give up… Never surrender…! 🙂

Twitter Cards

Had the official Twitter Plugin for a while now. But still no options about Twitter Cards.
