I finally have a new website!! yay!
No CMS, no blog, no nothin. Just what i needed!! :D
I wanted a way to just show people all my projects and that's it :)
I'm not a blogger as I discovered years ago, so I don't need one. I also don't need a portfolio anymore sine my focus is on my own stuff now, so i think this new site accomplishes all that.
no mobile version yet, more small tweeks to come probably.
Thanks for checking it out!
UPDATE: Be sure to use a webkit browsers, FireFox and other are lame and don't let you style scrollbars :(

oh and a link would be nice:
Congrats, dude! It looks sick!
Thanks notorious U S B :)
The scroll bar looks like a normal scroll bar in FF5 btw.
ya, FF doesnt do custom scrollbars :(
tip: use webkit ;)
Real nice, but why do you keep taking photos of your screen showing what you've made? It looks so stupid.
@Prekesh, i like it :)
Fair enough :P
congrats looks slick !
Great work as always!
My first instinct was to press Left and Right on my keyboard to navigate like coverflow. Perhaps you could add keyboard shortcuts. :)
Try tinyscrollbar - http://www.baijs.nl/tinyscrollbar/
Would look awesome on your website :D
could always use js for your scrollbars... looks fresh!
This looks really nice! I find the navigation to be a bit strange though. One reason for this is because the scrollbar goes behind the main card so it's possible for the card to completely cover the scrollbar: http://cl.ly/8RZE Maybe the scrollbar could be below the card? Also with the scrollbar you can't see all the items in the main card. The number it skips is dependent on the size of the window. In this screenshot http://cl.ly/8Rva I'm scrolled all the way to the left and have missed out on dialoggs, valio, and photos. To see them I would have to explicitly click on them. Maybe this could be solved with arrows?
Nice Drew.. but I don't like the way the scrollbar is underneath the content, or that if you click an image instead of scrolling it doesn't scroll the bar.
Love the colour scheme though.
Drew as others have said, I would use JS for the scrollbar, and fall back on HTML/CSS. It seems too big a piece of the UI to require a webkit browser.
The only think I don't like is that I can't reach the furthest ~2 projects by just scrolling, I need to click on them to see them. :p
It's a great website though, I love it! :)
Awesome feel to the site, Drew. Congrats on launching! I'd agree that it's a bit weird when you can't scroll all the way to the end of your project list, but when you click one of the last 3 puts it in the middle. The inconsistency makes you switch between two different ways of using the site.
Cross browser custom scrollbars and Drew Wilson's Pictos font.

Site looks awesome, but the scrollbar issue is really killing the experience. You're better than that Drew! I know you are.
i plan to add arrows for extra navigation help.
i wont add a JS scrollbar though.
Remember peeps.. i have NO need for usability. The only people viewing my site are other designers/dev.. and vast majority are on mac and webkit.
I'm not building walmart.com lol
I'm not looking to get clients nor impress anyone with a portfolio... so there is no reason to have across-browser site for drewwilson.com
My site is just a fancy link list. But ya, i'll add some nav arrows.. my wife was the first to suggest that.
great feedback everyone.. it shall be more easier to navigate soon! :)
Agreed with Dom... if you don't care enough to make your own portfolio usable, and you aren't looking to impress anyone with it, what is it doing on the Internet?
no one is locked out bro. a scroll bar looks different.
"that does NOT mean you can ignore important UX in favour of a purely aesthetic feature"
People just because it's on the web doesn't mean it has to work everywhere. It's the web, you can do whatever you want. Don't let anyone else tell you differently.
If accessibility matters on a project and you ignore it, then you should realize your will be cutting certain people off from a good experience... but honestly, that is just fine sometimes :) It's all up to you :) Make what you want, for who you want.
@Ben.. how is it not useable? everyone has been able to use it.
keyboard shortcuts: ← previous shot → next shot L or F like
