New Website launched!!
It has been quite a while since an update here... about 2 months, to be more precise. After the insanity of last summer and fall where I barely spent any hours not working, let alone any days, I was actually hoping for a much slower, quieter summer. Well, I got my wish with a summer filled with traveling, entertaining visitors, tons of sleeping, great food, a fair amount of wine drinking, book reading (it had been a while), gallery visits, sketchbook drawing.. as well as a little bit of commissioned work here and there.
Leisurely activities aside, I did spend a good portion of August redesigning my website. Originally I was going to hire someone to design and code it for me, but I decided to take advantage of my slower summer months and just do it myself. It was actually a large amount of work, and a lot of research for some of the coding, but I'm pretty happy with the results.. and I was able to set it up in a way that is much, much easier to update. I also simplified the general design and organized the content in a way that allows me to show a lot more work, including animation!
Just click on my new "Tim Tomkinson Illustration" logo, above, to get to the new main site. Or just click here. There are two smaller sections that are still under construction, but they may be finished by the time you read this.. whoever you are. Don't hesitate to contact me if you notice any bugs or generally dumb decisions on my part.
The image above doesn't really have anything to do with my new site, but a blog post with only type is sort of boring to me. I made that piece for a book pitch (can't discuss the details yet), and I later colorized it for a big party / art show that Friend & Johnson threw last May in San Francisco. All the artists submitted a piece that was printed as posters for sale. I have some extra posters of this for sale, as digital C-prints, so contact me if you're interested in purchasing one.
