Working on getting my sea legs back with more sustained drawings.

Frank Frazzetta

Flipping through Time tonight I found out Frank Frazetta had died earlier this week. It might now be evident in what I generally do, and it might generally only be acceptable in the hoity-doity circles to only admit to liking Frazetta as a guilty pleasure, but I have to say that he was probably more important in shaping what I do than Ingres, Schiele, Diebenkorn, and just about any other hallowed artist with a capital “A” could ever be.

Going VPS

Not that anyone will notice, but this site has been migrated away from Media Temple’s grid server to a small VPS. If you’ve ever tried to run a Drupal site on “the grid”, I’m pretty sure you know why I’ve moved. Media Temple’s mysql performance, unless you purchase a “mysql container”, is dismal at best. This site, which was running pretty bare-bones as far Drupal module usage goes, was taking up to four seconds for each page to load when logged in since the database queries took a horrendously long time. I’d been on Media Temple since way back (when they still offered old-school shared hosting), and I think I was much more pleased with the service/performance/price level then, and have been just suffering through things silently as they’ve segued into “the grid”.
