    I've been working on a website for an artist and it's nearly complete. There will be more content put up as she picks out what she wants to sell, but the overall design is pretty much done.

    The Paintings page uses a script called Lightbox which makes for an awesome way of displaying her works -- I'm really excited about it! :D I'll probably use it for her photography as well once she has some to put online.

    If anyone notices a problem then please let me know. Thanks! :)

    *Known Issues*
    - IE 6 renders the menu further down the page -- not sure about IE 7. This will be fixed soon.
    - Lightbox doesn't work correctly unless all the thumbnails are allowed to load first.

    I'd like to know how you did the gallery like that? I thought it was Flash but it's not.

    Site is very slow to load here in The Netherlands!

    Very good choice to use lightbox there!

    That is your problem right there, too many people hitting their servers to see their "mascot" :p
