Website Launched


Website Launched: 8/16/15

When I started painting Doctor Who fan art, I had no intentions of sharing it with the world, aside from posting a few pics to my private Facebook account for friends and family. Really, it all started with simply wanting a specific image to hang on my wall. This followed with another. And another. And another. By the end of 2014, I’d run out of space in my apartment to hang my paintings.

After receiving some commissions and at the prodding of a sizable contingent of people, I decided that it was time to share my art. In April, I put a pause on my painting to focus on taking high-quality pictures. I converted my apartment into a photography studio with fancy studio lights and stuff. I spent all my evenings after work and every weekend for several months taking hundreds and hundreds of pictures. Then I had to re-do everything because I realized I needed a better camera.

After all the pictures were taken, I set about designing the website. I wanted it to have the feel of an actual art gallery with white walls and a wood floor. There are several art galleries on Ogden’s historical 25th street. One had a chalkboard sign at one point outside on the curb. I really liked the look of it. That inspired the top banner. My main goal was to give the visitor’s the ability to browse my entire gallery on the home page. I wanted to give them the opportunity to purchase prints for as cheap as $15, so I set up a store on Society6.com/jephWHO. I also wanted to give people the opportunity to purchase the originals, so I set up a PayPal account. I wanted the site to be wholly mine. Designed by the artist. I didn’t want it to necessarily fall into any current web design trends.

Building the site wasn’t without its challenges. I’m not a web designer. I built a simple website six years ago when I was applying to grad schools. But that was the extent of it. I had to relearn everything and some new things. I should have asked my sister for help, as she’s a great web programmer, but I wanted to figure it out. About a month ago, I downloaded Filezilla to upload a ‘Coming Soon’ place setter to my home page. I’ve downloaded Filezilla before, so I thought nothing of it…but I didn’t pay attention to the download process like usually do. I just hit ‘next, next, next.’ My computer was overtaken by a gang of malware that practically took over my computer. That put me back two weeks as I figured out how to removing the malware (thanks goodness, I backup religiously). That was the first time in my life that I’ve experienced malware. But I got through it and here it is - my website. There’s still a lot of work that needs to be done on it. A lot more refining, but it’s a start.

Or whatever, I don’t care.
