My Website Makeover (FINALLY)

I've been working on and off on my website for the past couple of weeks now. It was in dire need of an update and general makeover. I tried to streamline it a bit more, eliminating the splash page and main/homepage. Even though I sort of enjoyed the splash page, I decided it was probably just more unnecessary clicks of the mouse. Apparently, art directors are put off by splash pages or any other pages that are not right to the point. I can understand that. So now my index page takes you right to the good stuff, the work. I have taken some older images off the work page, as well as added some new art and illustration. Some of the thumbnails have been made over, as well as the buttons that go to the different sections. The work is categorized differently now, dividing it into four sections. One of these sections is new and contains some examples of my fine art/personal work from the past year. Also, I fixed the link to my blog, which used to go to my old blog (my drawing-a-day blog which ended last year and I haven't posted to in forever). Now that link goes to this blog, Scritchy Scraps, which I update pretty regularly with news and images. The info page is pretty much the same, but I changed up the bio a tiny bit to mention my gallery/fine art experience and added some new things to the links section. I also now have a CV available, which is much more detailed than the bio alone.
