Artists’ Tea and Coffee Appreciation Group on Flickr


I’m a self-diagnosed tea and coffee addict and I am not ashamed about it. I know that many artists, be they designers, musicians, photographers or other got the same problem. Without our daily dose of cafeine we just don’t function. In order not to be alone with that burden I decided to open a flickr group where I invite you all to post your “I-drink-tea/coffee-self-portraits“. I believe this is a nice way to get to know each other a bit better. After all we’re a big and happy family. Join the Artists’s Tea/Coffee Appreciation Group now.

Please update the feed

I am very sorry for this post. During the technical difficulties fudgegraphics suffered from last week the feed address got lost. Please make sure you are subscribed to the feedburner feed. Thank you very much!

As mentioned a couple weeks back today is Blog Action Day 2008: Poverty. Today thousands of bloggers will unite to discuss a single issue – poverty. We aim to raise awareness, initiate action and to shake the web! Blog Action Day have compliled a list of 88 ways to do something about poverty today. I have already donated for this cause and hope that this post will motivate some of my dear readers to do so too, or to take another positive action to fight poverty. Together we can actually make a difference. Be part of it!

This is the place for you to upload your designs made from fudgegraphics freebies. I am not strict though. You may publish all your artworks there. In return they will be featured in the sidebar. Isn’t it nice to get some free exposure? While you’re at it make sure to post the designs to MyInkBlogs Group , Fuel Your Creativity Group and BittBox’s Group.

fudgegraphics is on twitter

It took some self-convincing but I finally gave in and joined Twitter. I’m not sure how much I will use it and whether it’s really worth it or just another social site to waste time on. If I believed what I read about it I’ll be hooked in about 2 weeks time. Only time will tell. Anyways, you can follow me here. Having an addictive personality (coffee, tea, cigarettes, …) I’m sure I’ll be abusing the service soon.

Free WordPress Theme Editor Kit

BittBox has just undergone a complete re-design and it looks great. Since my coding skills are anything but good I am always looking at other blogs and what themes they used/modified. That’s how I discovered WP Themer Kit. All you need to know is CSS to create your own awesome theme. It comes with 6 templates with different widths and number of columns. I just downloaded the WP Themer Kit and it really looks easy to use, even for a noob like me. I will probably re-code fudgegraphics using it. Hopefully that will get rid of some bugs in my current theme.

Jonathan Haggard updates his portfolio

A couple weeks back I featured the work of Jonathan Haggard who works under the alias of “skryingbreath”. He dropped me a mail to inform me of his newly launched portfolio at jonathanhaggard.com. It is definitely worth a look.
