My interests:

Comedy and Art:

I decided back in March/April, 2012 to combine Comedy with Art and start writing/drawing my own comics.

Web Development:

I wanted my own unique place to share these comics, so I started learning PHP to create my own website- Hitting Trees with Sticks.com, which I recently launched. Big thanks to the the Stackoverflow community for all of your guidance and encouragement.

Mandarin Chinese: (Moderator♦ on Chinese SE)

I've also been learning Mandarin Chinese for 6 years and have spent some time over in Taiwan (5 months) and Beijing (2 weeks). I was given the opportunity to provide interpretation for General Electric at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. To give back to StackExchange, I've recently become active in helping out on the Chinese Language and Usage site (http://chinese.stackexchange.com/).

@DA01 Good point. For a game that probably won't have change of time or different weather, what's a good average to go with?

@LaurenIpsum What do you mean "Try something not handwritten"? How can I do that and still keep the site with its comic'y feel?

comment How to not make my website have a “1990's” look
@Scott okay, but template 1 doesn't give me any room for links to other sites, or ads, etc. Also, I'm having trouble placing the search. I think it looks awkward right beneath the header... I could place it right above the footer. The thing with search is, it will return comic thumbnail results in that div, and not results on another page (you can test out on my website). Any thoughts?

@Scott Okay, added above. Is there any other way to design besides following a grid pattern? Enlighten :D Also, which of the two templates do you prefer, if any?

@plainclothes I would but... 1) Isn't it quite expensive? 2) I'm not confident a web designer would be able to capture how I want the site to look better than I can 3) I am building the site as a learning experience.

I added the breadcrumbs because I couldn't get the current page to stay highlighted, so that was a quick fix to let users know where they are. 3D frame as I am now thinking definitely distract, but it'd be cool to have some sort of background. I may put a category color (similar to theoatmeal.com) for each individual category. I chose that typographic style because I liked the font "Stanberry", but I guess it's childish. Thank you for your comments!

@Scott Okay, thanks for all of your help! I'll work on all of those things and maybe repost when I'm done. I'm trying to make my comics more popular.. I think the comics are okay, but the website might be dragging it down.
