Blog Update

As you can see, I have done a complete overhaul on my blog. This is still the original Son of Moto template available through Blogger. I only changed the background image and colors.

The background is based on my tattoo. I re-drew it since I did not have the original any longer. I colored it, scanned it, and played with the layout in Illustrator. After getting the layout correctly, I finished the coloring in Photoshop.

Next, I saved all of the original Son of Moto GIF's to my laptop. I changed the colors in Photoshop to the ones in my final design. After learning a little about CSS from my sister, I was able to fix an issue I had with my site and change the background and text colors. Thanks, Melanie.

The last step was uploading the new graphics to a public web server and making all the final changes in my template to where the files are now located. I saved it and then republished it.
