It’s coming along nicely…
I want to first say that I feel good about where the site is at right now. I think I’ve got most of the elements in and I’ve started to update some of the older entries. Basically that means that the site is almost open for business, so to speak. I won’t be ready to announce it on twitter for a while, at least until I’ve had some time to make sure that there aren’t some errors or problems that I haven’t noticed. That usually takes a few weeks.
I’m not going to go through the long list of things that I’ve fixed right now, but I will mention some of the more difficult things that I’ve managed to correct. Most of the difficult items have to do with formatting of the layout, and to be more specific, making sure that there is continuity between the blog and the static pages. Since they both use Bootstrap you’d think that wouldn’t be that much of a problem, but it turned out to be something that I worked on for days. To give a quick example was the sidebar on some of the pages were different from each other, and then they collapsed differently as well. Since I’m used to, but not an expert in Bootstrap, I first had to fix one then find out why the other was doing messing up. Like I said it took me days to figure it out. (more…)

So I just wanted to draw attention to a site that I have been using for about ten years. The site that every web designer should know, and my guess every true designer already knows about and that is codrops. This site is about the best that I’ve found for css and jQuery effects that will make every site just a little bit better. I first found the site through a regular search for hover […]
One of the new pages that I finished today. I don’t expect that there will be very many people who have stopped by to see how the site is coming along. In fact I don’t that there will be anyone since I haven’t shared the domain name with anyone that I can think of. Having said that though does not take into consideration people that would come here just to check up on me or […]

This thorough and accessible introduction to the greatest women photographers from the 19th century to today features the most important works of 55 artists, along with in-depth biographical and critical assessments.
Before I start the profile, I want to make sure that I let everyone know that I have added Mic to the site without her permission. I needed some content, so I wrote for an hour or two. This shouldn’t be considered a “true ” look at her work. Hopefully in the near future I’ll contact her to do a full interview.
The first artist that kennethcurtis.com would profile seemed like an easy one. I chose my longtime friend and mentor, Mic Muhlbauer. I’ve known her for about 21 years and she was one of my first professors when I entered undergrad and I am still as impressed with her work as I was the first time that I saw it so long ago. Though retired now, she lives a comfortable life following the life of an artist in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Mic’s main body of work contains a playful feel that embraces caricature”ism” melded with realism. Looking at her work you get a sense of stepping into her life as she lived it. I think that’s what makes it so interesting to me that I feel as if I’m getting a glimpse into her life. Even the people that are portrayed in her work seem to remind me of people that I realize that I don’t know, but maybe have seen somewhere. Maybe these unnamed people remind me of someone that I have known in my life.
Discussing Mic’s painting’s special knack of bringing the viewer into her world is to me, unique, but she has also moved to other types of work as well. She has a whole body of work that is 3D or sculptural. I’m the first to say that I am in no way an expert in castings or 3D, but from I can see in Mic’s sculptural work has the same basic playfulness that her paintings do.
