My (sorta) New Website

I designed my website for my portfolio with the look of Flash but utlizing HTML. I have been getting a good response (i.e. page visits) but I have noticed the pages viewed per visit are rather small. Considering this is a portfolio site the more pages visited the better, I would think? So ignoring content likes, dislikes what I am asking is have I created a site that is too difficult to navigate? Are all the buttons easy to understand, use etc..... Any advice, critiques or comments are welcome(constructive please!) Thanks. Here is my site:

Bus Stop Update(ready for molding...maybe)

Bus Stop is ready for the mold(well....almost still need some input from Bruno), just need to extend the sign post and add a chunk of concrete block to the end. Love to hear you opinions.....

Sub Complete(mostly;)

Thought I had posted this pic to the blog but I had only posted it to the forum, so here it is with a close-up of the dead fish. Just a little more primer and on to the paint.......let me know what you think?

Dead Fish:

More Fishies

More of the fish by artist Rich Werner (check out his other work), I am doing these as bas relief and plan to cast a couple in plaster and vacuum form a few more. Still some work to do on the two but teeth just needs some smoothing. Crits and comments welcome.

Cartoon Fish

I wanted to challenge myself to interpret a very graphic character into 3D. I ran across a great pic of a fish on Rich Werner's Blog (local Seattle concept artist) Its still a work in progress so there are still some details to fix and finish.

Tyger Tyger

Another study based on art by Ben Caldwell sculpted in Chavant. You can check out more of his work here:

Rivets and Dead Fish

Im not sure I have ever updated my blog this fast but here is a quick update. I added rivets and now beside the sanding and finishing I have dead fish and the base to finish(not to forget the molding and casting of the prop and hatch wheel, but thats minor). Should be ready for paint in less than two weeks.

Not sure if I have ever updated my blog this fast but every major part is is done now its just a matter of details. Sub panels and rivets are all that are left and then the sub is on to the mold. Let me know what you think...

Wow Cat Mini

This is a follow up to the Wow Dog Mini seen here. This is based on the awesome artwork of Dave Kurtz Williams (his website) You can also see the original artwork here.

USS Glub Nearing Launch Date

Another sub update! I finished molding and casting the arms and all I have left is the rear hatch and the prop. Sorry the pics are a little bright and hide some of the arm claw details but the next update will show more as they arms will have a coat of primer on them. I can’t wait to get paint on this…..! I am quickly pulling these projects together as my school has an alumni show coming up this summer. That coupled with the fact that I am neither moving nor having a baby this year means I can actually get some of the long gestating side projects finished……….ya me!
