Yep I'm the only artist on the site. Over time (and depending on mood), by style can be quite different, but if you look closely enough, you'll notice they all are kinda similar. Realism with a touch of comic book in it.
NextGen Gallery is another good plugin. I actually have that on my gallery page. I use it to show a bunch of related images, since for those images I don't care if they have an individual page or not.
Good point about the ads though. I'll think about getting rid of those - I hardly make any money on them anyways. I took out the "foldup" corner ad already - perhaps i'll just take the rest too, we'll see.
But we should compare notes! I can't a way to message you or see your site through WordPress...but when get a minute, head over to my site on the contact page and send me a message!
Awesome, good work. The only downside though to customizing WP is when WP is updated, it's not the plugin developers who need to update their code, it's you. Which is great if you have the time.
Mine's a bit of an amalgam like yours. I'm using WP, YAPB, and a highly customized theme to get the look I want.
