Do you realize that your –amazing– blog is almost unreadable?

Will be fixed soon. And if you're looking at the site on a resolution of 1600 x 1200, it looks amazing.

yeah, the sizes really need to be set back how it used to be. the images are waaaay too huge. this is one of my favorite art blogs out there, but i haven't really been around since the change because, frankly, i can't see the images as a whole, just in sections as i scroll down. it was a good experiment, but i'm not sure it's working. again, tho, i LOVE this blog and really appreciate everything you put into it.

I have this print signed and framed! It was a gift from my parents when I was a kid. I wonder if it's worth anything now?

Thanks for the feedback and I apologize for the inconvenience of the site design experiment. Elastic/liquid site design for blogger is proving more of a hassle than I'd anticipated and there is a surprisingly small amount of design information on it online. I've been experimenting for the last few weeks on editing the html and css code to function in a liquid design with little success. I'm not greatly familiar html although I use it extensively in its raw form and I know very little about css, so it's been tricky on my part to recreate the template from its insides out. I wish there was a default elastic template for blogger but unfortunately there doesn't seem to be. I think it is the future of internet design so it should only be a matter of time before this sort of thing catches on. If I can't get the site to run in an elastic design I'll be downsizing it from its current 1500 pixel width to somewhere between 1,000-1,200 to make it rum better on smaller screens.

My screen res is 1440x900 and the way I get around it is simply by using the "zoom" feature in Firefox. I'm sure IE has it also? Just hold down CTRL and press the "-" button. If you don't clear your browser history these settings will remain in place just for this site. :)

I love this site -- I appreciate all your hard work Aeron. I would prefer the old format too, but I'm willing to keep visiting while you experiment to try to get the look you want. It's worth it.

Thank you, and I'm juggling so many things in my life right now, this site being but one of them, so bare with me as I get this all figured out.
