I’ve done a makeover on the Adventures of Heather. Previously they were ugly. Now they’re still ugly, only deliberately so, in a dark, gothic kind of way. So if you like dripping blood, dark backgrounds and ornate text, then why not take a look?
Many of the ideas from the redesign came from http://www.designmeltdown.com/. It’s a really good resource for anyone who’s into web design kind of stuff. The tutorial on sprays and drips came in particularly handy (as should be obvious if you view the site).
