logo goodness

So I've had a love-hate relationship with my layout from the get-go, mostly in that it refused to let me write the blog title in anything by LARGE UGLY BLOCK LETTERS. So I approached my friend Peter (of the taught-himself-Flash-and-made-a-kickass-webpage fame) for help, and he enthusiastically agreed.

That was weeks ago.

Last night I ambushed him, and after 4+ hours of babbling, cursing (I'm serious, watching this guy work is hilarious), photoshop genius, we had a finished product. Then Peter went OCD perfectionist on me (which is cool, but it was 1am), after which I escaped, grasping my beautiful logo triumphantly to my breast. If you're on the site, you've already seen it, but if you're reading this via e-mail or RSS ya go:

Genius, no? It's all thanks to Peter Van Valkenburg (who doesn't have his own website, but writes frequently on the Stages blog). Keep your eye out for this guy, he's truly a jack-of-all-trades, as well as a fantastic friend to have.

I am so jealous. I need a Peter V. My header is so generic and yours is just perfect! I love it.
