As I explained earlier, I am working on internal housekeeping chores here in the guts of the Atlassphere - I think the right sidebar issue has been corrected and is no longer running below post entries in Safari and on on Macs. If you are still experiencing this, please advise me in the comments.
And yes, I continue to toy with the banner. I can't say enough good things about Stogie. He is stogalicious! He has been so sweet and patient, putting together my various ideas. He has run different incarnations here.
I went one step further and asked my favorite illustrator for ideas - big fur hat. He has done those incredible Rifqa illustrations for me for the Atlas Christmas card campaign, the rallies, etc. This enormously talented young man posts over at I Own the World.
Above is the latest banner rendering. I like it. As much as I dug the statue, I had too many issues with a witch who thought it was her original artwork (it wasn't). And evangelicals were put off by the perceived nudity. It was time to let it go.
The one thing I must point out is what a wonderful medium I work in. Stogie and Big Fur Hat happily assisted me. They have offered their help for different things in the past, and when I asked for their input, they got on it right away. I am fortunate to work with such people.
Thank you. Not just for helping me but for the contribution you make in this fight for all that is good.
Anyway, I like this latest rendering. It feels good. Your thoughts always welcome. But it's kickin'.
UPDATE: And another milestone for Atlas today ......my longest running advertiser, Dancing with Genesis, re-upped his annual advertising contract for a third straight year.
