Welcome and News


This is the art site of Sean W., the Phantom Inker. I'm a 40-year-old married professional programmer and amateur artist from Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

Work Continueth

Progress, sort of.

I'm busy coding the backend of this site. It has a good look now, but it needs code to drive it, and I'm going to write it all myself, firstly because I can, and secondly because 90% of everybody else's code sucks.

I wrote the backend of the old site, using some really interesting database-free scripting, but this one is going to use a real DB. The frontend uses semantic HTML and Sass (SCSS), and the backend deserves a nice shiny schema with clever indexes that make it go fast.

Anyway, more coming soon. This might actually do something useful after the next update.

Oh, also, I know it's not yet mobile-responsive. I'll fix that next time I work on it.

It's back!

Well, I have a new art website! Yay!'s a bit overdue.

Unfortunately, the content is going to be a bit lacking for a while, because we lost the server the old site was on, and while I have a backup of everything, it's kind of a mess. Yes, yes, I should know better. It'll all be put back together again eventually. Bear with me: At least there's a site here now, even if I only have four of my pictures on it.

This new site is built on HTML 5 and shiny modern technologies, so if it looks crappy on your computer, stop using Internet Explorer and get a real browser.

Also, OMG, I'm in my 40s now. I'm oooooold.
