The week before little Veda was due to arrive, Penny and I were discussing the fun stuff we’d like to do on Illustration Friday, plus the necessary upgrades that have been in the works for some time. A few hours later, she gave me a sparkling set of Photoshop files containing a new layout for the site, with all the new features we’d just been chatting about in place and the colors just radiant.
She said “I’ve been able to see it in my head for awhile.”
I love bringing Penelope’s web visions to life!
So, the IF Forums are temporarily read-only while we move everything to the new software and get ready to unveil the new IF. You can definitely still post entries and suggest topics (this week’s topic is “Intricate“, which had only been suggested a few days ago – I got a thrill when I saw it in the list. This should be fun!) and the new site will have even better tools for showing your stuff.
Meanwhile, in daily acts of inspiration, this pic from Camilla Engman‘s Flickr has been up on my screen since it was posted. I want to reach through the monitor, beep their noses, and touch the shiniest button at the bottom:
