Springtime fresh!

Time for a change. Different colours, and a banner! With art that was actually done in the sixties!! It's kind of a throw back, yet...NEW!!! You're welcome to tell us what you think of the revised look. Like it? Hate it? Don't care?

We appreciate the feedback.

Cheers,

A & J.

TRIPPY...
and springtime fresh!

Smook said...

I'm so glad, I'm so glad, I'm so glad it springtime! Nice, bright and lively, guys. I've been thinking the same thing with mine as well.

I think it's great. Sometime when I get enough energy, I'm going to steal your template, and do my own little cartoon masthead. (So, I hope you keep this for a while)

warren said...

wierdo. The banner hasn't even showed up. Or your profile photo. Everything else shows, tho. Mb it's because I'm browsing on Firefox? But everything else worked before...

unless...

you're changing your mind right now, aren't you?

the doodlers said...

Something's up with our website hosting service where we posted the banner... dancingmonkeys.com is currently 'not found' We're trying to remedy the situation...stand by! IF we can get thru to a tech support person!! Sorry Warren. Thanks for noticing...

LOVE IT! I hate those generic templates, especially for cool art blogs! We have to get everyone to customize their blogs!! Nice Job.

Clive said...

What! Where am I? Whats happening? Things look different. Acid flashback. I hardly have the energy to change my underwear, let alone the look of a blog. Good on you and it's a pleasant change.

Hi all, since the comments are generally favourable and we seemed to have resolved the technical issues, we'll keep this new look a while.

Oneman, thanks for the wienerdog...weinerdog compliment!
Nick, cheers, trippy was the plan! Ahh, can't really get too nostalgic for those days tho, I was just a naive sprout. Now I'm older, still naive, though.
Jack, feel free to swipe the code! We took bits from several of our favourite sites to build it so why shouldn't you?
Warren, come back! It works now.
Carlos, your blog is waay cool. Love what you did with the banner and the repeating brown paper texture bg.
Hi Clive! Please don't neglect your underwear any longer! It's dissorienting thinking about acid flashbacks and that underwear of yours at the same time...bad trip, man... I won't add a smiley face but you know we're kidding. Thanks for the note.

Yes, fresh is good. And this is fresh! Hey I've been going since the year 1969, so I know all about the sixties (nyuk).

Great stuff guys!

UM said...

Hey Doodlers, nice change. Did you see Seans airship blog? He's managed to change the wallpaper behing the pictures too.
I've tried many times, following the info I had of Smook and others to add a banner, but I'm obviously way too stupid to do even simple scripting. Instead I ended up with my headlines showing twice.
Love those sausage doggies too.

Drazen said...

I like it
I feel like getting out my majical markers and colouring it!

martin wittig said...

I like it! Nice light feeling:)

Elliot said...

It may be an old image but with the green it feels very contemporary.

the doodlers said...

Michael, Big thanks and cheers, ya sprout!

Uli, yes, Sean's airship blog is truly amazing. We must add it to our links. As for your blog(s), you really don't need to do anything special- the great artwork on them is enough.

Drazen. Thanks- hmmm...a majical marker mystery tour... next incarnation of the banner.. maybe...?

Martin, Elliot, Thanks! Seems the sixties gets revisited regularly in popular graphic design. I can see why, there's lots of material to 'draw' on, pardon the bad pun.

I'm liking it. Its springtime frrrresh!

Matthew Cruickshank said...

As fresh as a summers day!

warren said...
