This site serves as a repository of all my recent creations, including murals, drawings, music, writings and movies. An online portfolio, if you will.

I've decided to get my name out there in the art world and it seems like in order to be a successful "artist" you need a website, thus, I've made a website. Tell me what you think and if you have any issues I'd love to attempt to resolve them.

Additionally, larger versions of my artwork is available upon request.

The bright background really distracts from your work - maybe having a plain dark background behind the thumbnails would make them more striking and inviting.

I dig the art, but I'm going with gomichild on this one. The contrast between your paintings and the color pallet is jarring. Minor thing, you'll want to add height and width tags to all your images. This will make the page "build" better. You won't get that flowing in of your thumbnails.

It's nice to have a place to share your stuff.

I absolutely disagree with the previous two points. A lot of your artwork is nothing but color, it's like a meso-American dayglo or something. I think you should keep the background, because if you shy away from bold and loud colors in favor of something more minimalist, you're shying away from a pretty essential part of your style.

I love the Flamenco one most of all.

I agree with gomichild and cjorgensen -- I really like your artwork, especially the "minutia," but that background image is pretty distracting, and the neon colors also make the whole thing pretty hard on the eyes. Also, the background image repeats on a wide screen like mine. If you really want to keep the background image (is it a wall you painted yourself?) I'd say at least give your central content area a plain background, something that can really set off the bright colors of your artwork. I'd also ditch the frameset if possible.
