Why another new website?

Hello and welcome. So, why have I made a new website? After all, it doesn’t seem that long since the last one.

1) My davewalkercartoons.com site was, to be honest, a bit of a failure. I won’t explain why, it just was. I wasn’t updating it as a result. It is now closed and the website address should, technology allowing, redirect here. All the good cartoons from that site are now on this one.

2) You and I are using phones and tablets to look at the internet. So I needed, at the very least, a new design / wordpress theme make that possible. This one should do just that.

3) I don’t want the ‘church’ label at the top of my main site, not least because my work is now broader than that. My church cartoons site, CartoonChurch.com, is still very much there and active and I have plans to develop it, but it won’t be where my regular blog is. The Cartoon Blog on cartoonchurch.com may or may not redirect here at some point in the future, I haven’t decided.

4) I decided to lose the ‘cartoons’ from the domain name in case I want to branch out into something else. Making furniture perhaps, or tap dancing.

5) ‘.cc’ could stand for ‘cartoon church’, ‘cycling cartoons’ or ‘cauliflower collection’, you decide. But it was a domain name that was free, unlike .com or any of the good ones.

Anyway, I hope to be drawing and writing more than I have been. I hope you enjoy it.

  1. Top work Mr W – bring it on!

      Thanks Russ. You have comment No 1! (Apart from one by ‘Mr WordPress’, which I deleted.)

  2. Good stuff. I do enjoy a nice bit of responsive re-flowing. If only it were still the morning I couldn’t have added that and made it a bit more of a reference than an all-out nerd comment.

    I was wondering if the .cc was a rather subtle hint to your cycling direction (as in cycle club, for those eavesdropping).

    • Dave Walker says:

      Thanks Sam. I’d be unwise to take any credit for the responsive re-flowing myself of course…

      Yes, .cc could indeed mean that, and I possibly had that vaguely in mind! It seemed like the best available option given that a lot of my projects begin with C.

  3. Well done, the site looks good and your photo’s not too bad either. I feel that a blog update on tap dancing would be most interesting…

  4. Congratulations on this new site. It feels rather open and very comfortable to read. The colour combination is great. You have a great sense of humour. Keep it up!

    Looks good and nice and clear, which is good for a computer duffers like me. Well done, Dave!

  6. I’m liking the new website! :o )
