As part of the transition from “The Replacement Komics” to “Karl Habegger” I’m working on creating a new WordPress theme and Content Management System. It is substantially more complex than previous themes I’ve used. I’ve worked on a lot of WordPress themes and skins, but this is the first time I’ve built one from the ground up.
Back in November of 2007, Richard Dominguez and I decided to use the power of the internet to apply peer pressure to each other. The goal was to make certain we both stayed focused on creating art. It grew into the site known as Antithesis Art. I originally wrote the site in PHP, CSS, and created a back end using MySQL.

Cooling Cycle did not have a solid web presence when we started. I researched their competition and vendors and developed a design concept for them. They liked it and we went forward. I found a WordPress theme that had some of their desired layout already. I then replaced and recoded the theme until it functioned and looked the way we wanted.
They liked the initial design, but will not be featuring water activities as the land they are looking to aquire does not have rivers or lakes attached. They wanted something greener!
This was my first rough draft of a design concept for Brookside Camp in Indiana. The camp does not exist yet and has since been put on hold indefinitely, but hopefully will one day be open for campers.

Time to crank up the Way Back Machine: Once upon a time there was an art student named Karl. He owned a wonderful 1978 Plymoth Volare whose straight-six engine happily carried him all over the Indiana countryside.
