    Hello there, my name is Ant.

    I have been doing graphics on and off now for about 10 months. I am totally self taught, and am only 16. So no job within it yet :p.

    Anyways, found this site, googling around :)

    I love to muck around in photoshop doing web layouts.
    Used to create signatures for forums but see that as pointless now, as how will it help, aha. I also like to take photos too :D.

    I really wanna get into Illustrator too, but taking things step by step atm.

    Currently trying to make my templates into XHTML / CSS and then into wordpress :p.

    PS: Would anyone suggest using wordpress as a CMS?

    Yeah i had a portfolio, using GetSimple CMS,, but took it down while i work on a better layout. As you can see i just have a twitter update, thanks to Chris for his code.

    Ermm, i'll tell you all when it's done. Just gunna get a new layout done. Code it up, maybe use wordpress. If not use GetSimple again and get a album up there using simpleviewer and flickr. (Found a tut on that somewhere).

    Other than that, yeah i got a DA.

    Thanks for the welcomes.. again!

    I have decided to work more on my web layouts. (Practice, practice, and yeah more practice).

    I also wanna get used to using Illustrator, as i know it's a great tool. Vectors, Logos, etc. I would love to be a good logo designer.

    Then i will lean more towards the coding side. Rather get the design side down first.

    Thanks again! Seems a nice friendly community here!

    Welcome aboard Ant. Very impressive that you are already getting a good head start on a career in Graphic design and/or Photography. Being that young you can just create and don't worry about work yet though, for now I would say just have fun with it! I'll see you around the forums.:)

    Yeah, Rhonda, i have even always loved graphic design. Not so keen on actual art, pen and paper drawing. Well infact, i used to love it until high school and the teachers were just pain in the asses.

    I mean, i would look around on freelance websites, but theres no point at the moment. I would rather practice more and more to get my skills :D. But then again, i could always practice by entering something.

    We will see ay ;) :D

    Thanks for the even more welcomes!

    Why does your name sound so familiar to me?
    Does 'Next' or 'NYM' say anything to you?

    Onartis. Hmmmm, not as far as i know.

    The only other places i'm from are like, FringeFX, Digital-Remix and DA. I don't even really go there anymore, as the places are too busy and i don't get feedback. Whereas here, i get loads of feedback, it's great :D

    I remember FringeFX. Guy that used to do the graphics for a few vBulletin styles I did spent a bit of time there and I joined up.
