Web prescence?

When Chris and I first met, it was through mutual friend Joe Tem Seung. As I recall, Chris was looking to have a website put together to sell his published art and maybe take on some commissions. Joe sent him my way, we got on instant messenger, and got to work. We got to know each other pretty well over the next few months and have been pals ever since.

If you'd like to check out that first website, thanks to the magic of web archive, a good bit of it can be seen here . It's amazing how much of this stuff still works on webarchive.org, if there's an old website that you liked that is gone, check it out if you can remember the url! Chris will probably cringe to see a lot of this stuff again, I know I do when I see the design (why does it have Chris' name up there twice like that?!)

Anyway, I had done a couple of other websites at the time. Batgirl Online was a site I used to display my ridiculously huge Batgirl commission collection. I also designed Dave Johnson's first website and I had my Mr T. sketchbook online too. All 4 of these sites were hosted by our buddy Mike Freiheit. Mike had a nice little comic art website empire. I'm babbling, I could talk about these good old days all night. I'll stop now though and share some old images...

DAMN you Rico!!! I had every intention on hitting the sack before the sun came up... now look what you did! :-P Now I have to check out pmayhem and then search for every other website my goldfish memory will allow me to remember! Ha ha, is it sad that I so have and JUST used that font from pmayem? It's still a good'n.

hey Craig! there you are! wondered if you were still around. thanks for checking in especially when Rico insists on showing this old stuff. ugh, its hard to look at. i got another Dusty sketch stated, maybe it'll get finished now. shes's a hard one to figure out, sometimes Andrew and Jim Royal and i would try and cast her. Jim liked Parker Posey, i don't "like" Alanis Morrisette, but i see her face in Dusty. Mikey's being modest, he had Project Mayhem up before that "club" where you "fight" (Ed's joke) got popular.
