world giraffe day, imagination, selfie day, and a new website

Happy World Giraffe Day and National Selfie Day! In honor of these two holidays and the Illustration Friday prompt for this week (yarn), I drew a picture of myself imagining a few characters, including a giraffe and a bird knitting a looooooong scarf with yarn:


Did you take a selfie today or draw a picture of yourself? Did you celebrate World Giraffe Day?

In other news, I finally re-designed my website. WooHoo! Unfortunately, it is not as mobile friendly as I thought it would be. Boo! I thought that the fluid design I was creating was also a responsive* design, but it was not. (*Responsive designs detect the device you're using and automatically reformat the website without the user having to do anything.)

I still like the new design, whether it's responsive or not! That said:

Will be re-designing my website again, just as soon as I learn how to make it a responsive design. Hoping to do it this fall or winter - if all else fails, I could make a Wordpress site (though I haven't had luck with WP security and getting hacked in the past, so I'm hoping to figure out how to make a responsive site myself instead).

Want to see the new design while it's still up? Here it is: http://www.sruble.com.

Do you have a responsive website or a favorite responsive website by someone else?

Happy World Giraffe Day and National Selfie Day!

  1. My favorite "unlikely animal." My father used to say that, if he hadn't seen them with his own eyes, he would have said such animals don't exist... I adore these long-necked splotch-covered folks.

    1. Happy Giraffe Day, Mirka! They are unlikely animals. Whenever I see them, or draw them, it seems like it's something imagined rather than a real animal. Though that's part of their charm. :)
