New Artist Web Site

I've created a web portfolio for an Artist, Monique Laramee. She has some amazing work the is flamboyant, beautifully coloured, mixed media and visually poetic.

We needed to create a site that would be a platform for her paintings, simple interface with four periods of artistic life represented...

The site has a lot of images so I decided to use XML to load the images into Flash, easily up-datable and changeable.

Flash AS3

Well I'M making the switch in Flash from ActionScript 2 to ActionScript 3. So far its seems to be truly fascinating and I believe a great enhancement. Millions of articles have already been written by far worthier scripters than myself, but I have to say there are some great essential leaps that have been made. User created objects is a great addition and opens up the a whole new arena.

I'm using a great book Learning AS3 by Rich Shupe - - and obviously numerous on line resources...

I'm also upgrading to CS4. I'll let you know how I get on.
