miketoons goes WordPress


December 30, 2010 – from today miketoons.com is running on WordPress power!

miketoons has been around on the web in one form or another since 1995. The word was coined at a moment’s notice when I was asked by a guy at the ISP (Altas Internet) what I would like my website space to be called. Back in 1995 it was like that. All very personal.

I blurted out “miketoons” and so started my first website.
miketoons.com followed in 1997.

This was the image on the homepage of miketoons in its first incarnation. Doodly doodles* on a spiral bound secretarial notepad, montaged in Photoshop. I still like the lettering but I’m not sure now about the fake coffee cup stain.

*My best doodles are done while talking on the phone.
