    OK, so if I just go to the cpanel at GoDaddy, and install Joomla, can I start creating the site using an offline page like .index2? And then once it's done rename it to .index and overwrite what was done...

    The problem with Wordpress is that it has .wordpress in the domain and I don't want that. And I did look into Drupal and liked Joomla better.
    Cool thanks B, I'll check out the WAMP....

    I was looking through my bookmarks (some day I must organize these!) for a blog site I came across on drawing that I thought would be great to share. No luck -- but I did come across this series about drawing by James McMullan. Amazing stuff.

    Hope you guys enjoy it:

        One of my favourite extracts from James McMullan's drawing 'lesson' #1:

        I confess that much contemporary drawing disappoints me for its lack of risk and immediacy. It often seems like the product of a too premeditated and too lengthy process of refinement. Part of this may be the influence of the computer and the surface perfection that it achieves so easily; geometrically pure shapes, even textures, clear colors.

        Another source of this arid quality may be attributable to the use of photography as a drawing shortcut. Photography as a source for subject matter has opened many amazing possibilities in 20th and 21st century art, but when it is used as a tracing or projecting tool in order to circumvent the difficulties of achieving correct proportion, the resulting art is often static and lifeless.

        Drawing is a process of engagement for the artist, a period of both time and struggle that pulls the artist deeply and intensely into his subject and his ideas. Projecting a photograph in order to give you a perfect drawing of your subject has robbed you of all the imperfect yet more interesting drawings you might have made.

          It's good to read an article about traditional methods of illustration and design. My graphic design work is done primarily on a computer. I paint and draw, but that is my other life. This article is inspiring me to combine the fine art and graphic design. Thanks for sharing!

            Awesome... that is Graphic Art!

            And who said traditional Illustration wasn't being use anymore?
