Tweaks

Just handling a little housekeeping around here. I don’t know if anyone but me noticed, but the link to the Downloads (now Freebies) page was broken. I fixed that and revised the About page and put up a new photo there. I also put a new photo in the header. That’s me in Monteverde, Costa Rica, last summer, crossing a suspension bridge in a cloud forest.

Do you like that, or do you prefer the old illustration of me as a pirate? That came from the Doomtown CCG from way back when, courtesy of artist Lissane Lake. It’s a fun shot, and I have the original and its brother illustration hanging here in my office, but I wonder if it’s better to have something slightly more professional.

  1. For your career, I think the pirate illustration _is_ more professional. 🙂

    Maybe you can swap them out periodically.

  4. Yes, go back to the pirate illustration. Helps with the concept of the “fantasy” genre. Keep the photo on the bridge for your About section. Shows you are a “common man” in touch with nature.

  7. Be forewarned. I have pictures of you from the summer we were roomies at Marquette University. Maybe I can post those on this site.

    I recall that you did some inspired writing that hazy and crazy summer in Milwaukee.

  9. From a purely aesthetic viewpoint, I say go with the pirate. The bridge photo crops kind of strange.

    From a marketing standpoint, I say go with the pirate. It gives a sense of storytelling and fun–which is what games and novels are all about.

    If you really want to impress people, put up a photo of Ann. She’s *way* prettier than you. 😀

  11. All right, that’s three for the pirate and none for the bridge, so there we go. Years from now, Internet archaeologists will stumble across this page and wonder “What bridge picture?”
