Fan favorite Bat-artist Dustin Nguyen debuted the new look to his site, Duss005.com, today and it looks sharp. Blog@ talked to Nguyen about what’s different and how proud he is of it, and why it took a while to do.
“It took a long time mostly because i’ve been just busy with work and family stuff,” Nguyen explain. “The biggest difference right off the bat is that it’s a real website this time. Looks a lot better. It just browses easier.”
He goes on with “The newest thing in it that I’ve never had before is the store. It helps me archive everything I’ve done into one place and lets anyone interested in pieces know of their availability. Before this, my site has just been a place to see random odd sketches- now i feel like a real comic artist again. Somewhat.”
On the actual designer of the site, Nguyen says “a close buddy of mine put it together for me, he doesn’t really do it for a living, but likes to help out when he can. He’s also the guy that’s put together sites for artist Sean Murphy, Takeshi Miyazawa, and Christina Strain. The guy is rad.”
For art collectors like myself, I’m really grateful for the store part of the site. So grateful in fact, I might pick up a piece today since my collection is severely lacking some Nguyen-ness.
