Hi folks! Been a long time since I last updated. I’m at art school now, which is pretty cool, and I’ll be studying graphic design starting next year. I have by no means dropped web design—rather I’ve been working on a number of projects for different people and am still very much in love with coding and design. Because of this I am more and more aware of how a lot of my content here has become outdated compared to my current abilities. I’m going to be working on some reorganization of the site, provided I don’t poof again. Here are some things I’d like to do:
- Convert website layouts to wordpress themes.
- Destroy evil influx of spam comments—although it really has been interesting to watch the evolution of spam from gibberish to coherent sentences over the years.
- Reorganize navigation to bring best content to the forefront, particularly resources like brushes and textures.
- Segregate neorelated content from other stuff and retire low quality content.
- Possibly open current projects page, or connect with my more up to date stuff on the web.
I kind of really doubt anyone is keeping up with figmint at this point—but if you are and have any suggestions for the reorganization, the comment form is yours. (:

Well now! That’s a very good questions. It seems everything is zipping by very quickly. Since January when I posted last (how is that possible?) I have mostly been steadily working through school and freelance jobs, and somewhere in there I graduated high school. In a few days now I’ll be moving to go to art school and no doubt the coming school year will also leave me dazed and blinking in the sunlight.
Hm, so what’s to come of Figmint? Well I have no intentions of taking it down, but somewhere along the line it may be transmogrifying into more of an artist’s site with neo stuff on the back burner and more of my current work in plain view. However, don’t worry, I promise not to remove anything but whatever unbearably ugly works connived their way onto my website through strange modes of self deception. In the meantime I may continue to slowly update, or I may not. As I said, the school year tends to go fast. However, you can keep an eye on me if you like, on deviantArt or tumblr, where I am more active these days than this site currently.

Hello chappers. School’s started and may just be calming to a manageable steadyness, so that means I might actually have time to do a thing or two around here.
As I get pickier, it seems like I have problems with more and more of my older creations, and a visitor kindly pointed out to me that my userlookups are having trouble. I will get around to fixing these problems immediately.
Improved Userlookups: Jubjub Cloud, Sketch Shoyru, Explorer Shoyru, Zombie Kacheek.
I tested the Snowickle and Grey layouts. They work fine, but the preview shows up wrong. I still have a few more to polish up under the neopets section, and then I’ll sift through the others.

Hello! It’s probably clear by now, but I’ve had some difficulties with the site. It got deleted inexplicably, March 25th or so, and I recreated it, but not everything’s in working order. More recent updates are lost. The stock photography section is down, but I will fix that as soon as I have the opportunity. Also, the domain figmintdesigns.com does not work for the moment, so change your links to figmint.zzl.org if you have a moment. I’m working on fixing this problem, but it seems to involve some waiting. Sorry about this.
Until the site’s back in order, there probably won’t be any content updates.

After all my attempts at creativity, I come up with the lamest title ever. Heh.
Well, you may be looking at it night now, but if not, click options on the right and select the skin “Teal”! It’s what you’ve all been waiting for, hopefully. I very much enjoy it, and I hope you do too.
