New look for web page?

I've been thinking of re-doing my web site for a while now due to some criticisms I have received as well as some reasons of my own.


  • overall look isn't eye catching
  • portfolio images are too small and unappealing
  • people will almost always look at my physical portfolio and then tell me that I am much better than my web-page makes me look :(
My reasons:
  • page layouts are not very flexible
  • front page images aren't the best I could be using
  • I have two styles (comic and painterly) but only one of them ever really gets me any work (comic) so I want to re-focus my samples and general feel
With these things in mind, I have been toying with some different layouts and looks. here's a preview of the one I did today. I don't know if I like it or not. I tried to make a logo of sorts but since my business initials are D.W.I. I'm not sure if it is good to use them. I'm afraid I'll get a lot of "driving while intoxicated" comments. "Drawing while intoxicated" comments would be fine ;)

So what do you think? Please let me know, thanks!
I would make the sample images random so you would get a different set of pictures every time you visited the site or reloaded the page. I was also thinking of adding a little news section at the bottom so I could post important messages and updates.
