    To OP. Good design. I like it for simplicity and the fact that you are utilizing transparent or negative space. The cut away look is a super plus. Here is one I did for a different forum. It's transparent...

    Here's a personal project for my portfolio. I started with the site name built a theme around it; in this case, I was going for a jungle explorer feel.

    None of the links work, though some have hover effects. IE7 decided that the padding on the navigation and the text in the footer were luxuries I didn't require, and the two of us will no doubt have a long discussion about this in the morning. Other browsers seem to display fine.

    Any comments/crits greatly appreciated. Also, out of curiosity, is it customary to do design a subpage as well for sites that are going into your portfolio? I've seen it done both ways, and I've always wondered.

    I like that it's colorful and it fits in my 1024x768 viewport. It's kind of tall though. I'd try to pare it down vertically and cut to the chase. I feel like there's a lot of space wasted on the top right, you could shove a slogan or a phone number. The line-height on your body text is just a -little- too tall. Good for book reading, not great for web reading.

    Your IE problem is probably because you're using the default margin/padding for that <ul> tag. You don't need to float the <ul> left. You should set a width on it and set overflow: hidden, reset the margin to 0 and set the left padding to whatever you're using on the main content div (you called it "#left"). Set #navigation ul li a to display: block if you want those links to be square.
