Least of all me. I've spent years designing for entertainment industry clients. Projects like PerlMonks.org is just the kind of refreshing change I've been looking for. I posted my portfolio simply as proof that I am who I say I am. NOT as a suggestion that PerlMonks should be designed using Nickelodeon orange with a giant space robot intro animation.
Now, a flying monk Flash intro — hmmmmmmm — maybe. ;)
