Of course one of my favorite websites to visit for more tips and trick in the art (and website making) world...Webdesignerdepot.com
This post shows a bunch of examples on how websites use an opening face page consisting of a sentence or two explaining the purpose or short bio of the artist. Apparently it's a new trend these days...and I have just the spot to do it on my website!
I have always tried to figure out what to do with that spot...maybe I'll handwrite a short intro there. Right now the text seems a little artificial and too digital to really match up with the style of the drawing. I'm also considering maybe adding in some color to the drawing instead of keeping it purely blue and white.
