Why is this even necessary.
I would like to let you know that, you were THE Inspiration for me to get into icon designing. One guy whose works and icon designs I constantly looked up to while I lurked during Macthemes days. I waited for every icon set of yours to release to apply them on to my PC's using IconPackager. As you had mentioned in your Macthemes interviews, you always strived to hit that sweet spot in icon-esque semi-realism. Somewhere between cartoony and photorealistic spot that I love so much and keep at heart as the epitome of an icon's look.
You were so much of an inspiration and continue to be one that only yesterday did I link your portfolio to someone to get inspired.
Anyway, things change around us and we have to learn to adapt. Helping patients come back to life rather than pushing dead pixels on screen might be giving you more kick and I appreciate you for taking that decision. But know this, thanks for changing my life :) Oh and by the way, it's two.
Having written that half-sappy half-dramatic blurb, about the current design for the page, I am going to take a critical position. It feels a bit odd to call out the guy who brought me in this industry. But I think you would understand :
1) Making the whole of it a picture was a wrong decision imho. The bottom links are clickable as well as unreachable for they will not displayed on lower y-width resolutions (such as my MBP) and there is no scrollbar because of the styling.
2) I spotted the markup div align="center".
Isn't that a way to get things just done rather than doing it right ?
You're still one of the best and a huge inspiration to me. Prathyush said it better than me so I'll just echo his sentiments. Sad to see you go.
@Prathyush Pramod Wow! Those are some kind words man. Thank you VERY much!!!
As to the whole page thing: I might know how to replace a hip, jumpstart a heart, or even do an icon! But .html is something I never learned :D So I reused some old code which is NOT very elegant! if someone could code me a basic indexpage I wouldn't mind :P
And as always, I will of course be putting up an archive of my stuff. It was just my old hosting shutting down the other day, and I need to find somewhere else to put it.
@Prathyush Pramod pretty much summed it all up. You are and always will be my personal hero, and I wish you best of luck on your journey.
All the best for the future doctor.
You've been a great inspiration!
