OMG. He totally killed the design I made. Why even have me make it if you're just going to screw it up? It looks pretty fraking awful now. (caps: 1024x768, 1280x1024)

It was supposed to look like this.

I'm just glad I didn't put my name on it anywhere because he's basically destroyed the awesome layout I made and turned it into a horrible mess. He made the text HUGE (now the menu looks screwed up) and then added the additional out of place side columns. He then removed the gallery I spent time installing and threw in an awful, poorly-sized flash gallery. It's no longer easily viewable at a small screen resolution.

Ugh. I'm disgusted.

I'm debating whether or not I should write him some sort of e-mail, but I probably shouldn't... as I could not contain the anger and snark.

ETA: Rather than an evil letter, I would like to write this passive aggressive one:

I'm glad you finally got the layout up. However, I wish you would have consulted with me before you edited my design as now it no longer represents my design nor my quality of work.

New Twilight icon. Because I love Alice. And because I wanted to slap Bella. A lot.

Gah. I was actually productive today!! What that means, is I've finished the site commission I've been working on. The client seems happy with it and SPGM was a bitch and a half to shove into the layout properly, but once I did it, I think it looks pretty great. When he updates his site with the new layout, I'll be sure to link to it so you guys can have a look.

I met up with [ profile] iambliss for lunch, which was fun! She also gave me the finished piece for my River costume, which I can't wait to wear at DragonCon! I'll have to try it on with my costume to see if there any details I have to tweak. After that, I went to run some errands.

AHHH! DragonCon is so soon! -_-;; I am so not ready. Got two days to pack and finish up some matting of prints. Eep!

Threadless is having another sale! $12 shirts this time. And... I think I will spend a bit of my commission money (and Threadless credit).

+ No Peeking
+ Cooking With Friends
+ and a gift for someone else.

Think now I shall be off to find some dinner and maybe watch more Doctor Who.
amezri: (nothing ;; a dwelling)
My Moo postcards came in today. They're really lovely prints! I think maybe I should have them do all my printing now :P The question is whether or not I want to mat these to giveaway at DragonCon, or just give them away as is. Hmm....

ARGH. My decalgirl order came in as well... but they sent me the skin for the wrong EnV! Blargh. Which sucks, because I've really been looking forward to have the skin on my phone. Now I have to go through the hassle of returning it and waiting for it to process and then waiting for mine to arrive. ANNOYED.

So. My job? NUTS right now. I don't know what all is going on, but there are shake ups and insanity and... well, honestly, I'm really glad I'm done with it after this week.

Worked on commissions today. One is going along really well. The other... honestly, I just tried what he wanted and I think it looks pretty awful. Maybe it's just my rending. It's just... not really good. Ugh. Maybe it'll work out better once I have real photos and content to work with. Honestly, it looks pretty ghastly. And a bit like a page for a law firm, honestly. I'm probably going to tell him that.

Okay.. I totally went back and design something that I like and I think he'll like and it looks way better than what he wanted. I hope. Ugh. We shall see. I think it looks a thousand times better than what he wanted, actually. But who knows with clients.

Worked on some website stuff today. Commission-y things as well as tiny updates to my own. Somewhat accomplished? There's still that one that I don't really want to start on. Ugh. Don't care at all.

Tom McRae's site is still down. What is up with that? Have sent an e-mail to inquire. In other news, he will be back in NYC at the Living Room October 29 & November 5. Both are Wednesdays. Hopefully I'll be able to make one of those and go see Tom again with [ profile] ozw. In other Tom news, have finally heard the song, "Lipstick" that he did with Wills & the Willing. Like it a lot. Forked over $3 at mbop megastore for a copy as I refuse to touch iTunes.

Made cakes in a jar! Was a bit tragic. I think I filled the jars too much. And the batter I used (Pillsbury Funfetti mix) is a bit sweet. I think it would have gone better if I used smaller jars, so I might go find some and give it another go.

photos! )

Well. That was enough productivity for the day. I think I'll go lay about for a while.
amezri: (amezri ;; geek code 3.12)
GAH! BPAL posted their new Halloween scents last night and I was tempted by the Pumpkin Patch. Honestly, though, none of those notes work on me, so I was about to ditch when I noticed the Steamworks section! No. 93 Engine and Ether sound rather interesting. Then I poked around the rest of the catalog and I like the sound of The Unicorn and Mouse's Long Sad Tale, as well as Jack, but I don't know if I want to smell like pumpkin pie and peaches.

Actually got up and worked on one of my commissions this morning. I really like the way this one is coming together. Hopefully the client likes it as well. His music is fun and cheery and I'm hoping the site conveys that. Anyway, it was pretty fun. That other commission, though. Oy. I don't know what I'm going to do about that one. Suppose I should actually get started on it.
