    Default My New Portfolio site.

    Here you go. After many years of a Flash-based site, I have finally replaced it with a Xara built one.

    http://www.squeakypics.co.uk

    Sadly this is probably the last one I'll do like this. There were/are too many issues with Xaras pop-up gallery especially on mobile. I have reported the issues and Xara have logged them so maybe they will be fixed sometime in the future. I hope so. I really enjoy using XGD pro :-)

    Thanks, Gary. It took ages. Though most of the time was spent trawling through the archives trying to find high res versions of artwork. The world has moved on quite a bit since I built the last version of the site :-)

    Nice site and awesome contents, Dave! Only thing I don't like that much is the Open Sans font in combination with the Life Savers font. Might be just a matter of taste though...

    Cheers Egg.
    Most of them are Xara with the newer (More textured) stuff In clip Studio Paint. Most of the animation is done in Moho.

    The Lazy way :-). It is simply a self-hosted WordPress site using the built in 2013 theme. I pretty much just changed the banner.
