Drawing isn't a black art, but most of us never have to practice enough to become comfortable with it:

"Drawing is merely making lines and dots on paper. If you can write your name, you can draw. But we all take shortcuts when we see; often our brains fool us, and we skip over most visual details."
My art classes didn't even push observation this well:

"The results are spectacular. Students love it, feel engaged and involved, and take pride in their work – not because it’s worth a grade, but because they struggle, push themselves, and end up with a brilliant payoff."

There's a focus on biology here, but it clearly extends beyond reproducing specimens on paper.

"The goal of my biological illustration course is not the product, it’s the process. The power of my course is in its interdisciplinary nature – not just because it combines biology and illustration, but because it forces students to recognize their own weaknesses in a whole array of knowledge and skills. Real life isn’t neatly divided by subject."

If you'd like to keep up with my design work or other website-nerdiness, be sure to follow +Wolfestar Design.

Everyone else, back to our regularly scheduled programming...
To coincide with the release of her latest book, Hibernate, author +Elizabeth Eslami wanted to refresh her website http://elizabetheslami.com/. Goals for the project included modernizing the site with a responsive design, promoting Hibernate as well as increasing the visibility of Eslami as an author.

With that in mind, we have a home page that has the double-duty of introducing the book while literally putting Eslami's face on the project. The 3 most recent News post headlines at the bottom of the page guide readers on to learn more and dig deeper into the site.

The site also features a book trailer for Hibernate by +Bring Media, mailing list options,  and some of the social media connections that are standard these days. And to make sure it's all easy to use and manage, it's all powered by WordPress as a completely custom theme along side a small collection of great plugins like WordPress SEO and Advanced Custom Fields.

Don't be afraid of display:table. Table markup may be ugly, but selectively using their display properties can be great.
