Weebly E-Commerce Fail
Weebly recently released access and support for e-commerce to their wisywig site editors. As some of you may have seen recently, I gave it a go and attempting to add some of my work to a storefront and enabled the store feature on my site. I was not happy with how www.etsy.com stores had gone in the past, so I thought this would be a good new alternative. However, there are a few points they don't mention outright on Weebly that makes it kind of awkward offering the e-commerce feature.
Thanks for reading and stay warm. It is reading 0º here in balmy Rochester, MN.

Idea for Children's Book . . .
Loyd the next-door Monster by Tim Kaney
So yes, I had always thought that I might be good at writing and illustrating children's books. Not until the other day had I played around with anyone idea. Above, you can see the concept sketch for the main character and title of the book I thought about.
Since becoming a father of an amazing son, I have many times thought about the lessons of life he will learn and how many I might be able to help him understand. What better way than through a book?
Not sure yet what Loyd would do, but it might be about teaching kids to remain objective and not judge other by what society says about the type of person they are, look-like, or hang-out with.
At the very least, it was nice to do some fun sketching.
What do you think?
I love art!
Here are some reasons why I love art:
That's enough for now. Until my next post.
Uhm, I'm the guy who runs this website - artist, designer, writer, father, and husband . . . big whoop, wanna fight about it?!
