the white empty squares on either side will be horizontal scrolling portfolios that when clicked on will enlarge on a different page. The idea came from a book on new website design/ideas and I like the idea that a lot of my art could be quickly viewed all at once with the option of looking closer available. Clicking one at a time and even seeing a tiny preview thumbnail might slow things down in the fast paced art world. The light gray box in the middle at the bottom will be a news box with updates and hopefully release dates of future books. And I like the different backgrounds I got going on behind the design portfolios (argyle) and the illustration ones (floral/organic pattern). That's meant to show a left brain/right brain difference at work.
Now just have to sweet talk the hubby to build it :)
