Design

I designed these buses based on a late ’70s VW bus ad. All the color combinations were available as new buses except for the last one.

HTML & CSS

The buses are responsive. All sizes and positions are set in em. Size of each bus is scalable by setting font-size using vw.

Brainless Tales

Artist, web designer, and builder of this popular daily web comic.

Summary

Brainless Tales was my personal comic I created and published daily for 9 years. All the design and coding was done by me.

Art

All 3,289 comics were drawn with pen on paper, scanned, and edited in Photoshop.

Web Design

I designed the site to match the esthetic of the comic.

HTML & CSS

All the front end was hand coded — most recently to be responsive and HiDPI.

PHP & MySQL

The site does not use a CMS. The database was set up, and the PHP was hand coded for the job of managing the comics.
