Oops! I Just Took A Header– SPLAT!

October 21, 2010

I liked my old blog header, but I began to worry that it might be giving people the wrong impression— as in, this guy only draws stupid cartoons. So I came up with a new header which clearly says: hey, this guy does some very hip and sophisticated illustration in addition to stupid cartoons— a much more desirable impression.

So here’s the new header followed by the old one. What do you think– does it create a better impression? Would appreciate your feedback. blog header for mark armstrong illustration showing montage of recent graphic art

    It’s always good. Happy for your great creativity and energy. I expect many good things for you in the future. Jesus knew how to smile, I am sure.

    I like your old header but understand why you switched. It all depends on what type of person you’re trying to attract. If you want goofs like me, keep the old one. If you’re trying to attract a more sophisticated client, who might actually pay you cash, you probably made a good switch. You can always switch out some of your newer/better drawings in each subsequent new header.

    Good luck! I’ll continue to stay tuned in as you sure do dam fine work.

      Thanks, my friend, for your dam fine comment and ongoing support– it means a lot. You are clearly a highly sophisticated goof, and if I may say so, it takes one to know one… : )

      Cheers, Patrick!

    I love the new header! I don’t know if it is because I am a softball fan. 😀

      My theory is, it’s because you are a softball fan and an astute judge of art… : ) Thanks so much for your kind comment!

    Sorry I’m no help! I like them both~

      Wait a minute– you like both designs, ergo you’re no help?? I beg to differ!!

      You have just boosted an artist’s ego– always a very fragile and shaky thing!!

      Thank you, my dear Cindy– you have been a tremendous help!!! : )


A penny for your thoughts. I'm on a tight budget here.
