A Word About My Banner

Hello, world. 

You may realize that the banner you see in front of you is not the one you chose. You didn’t bark, nor did you do the sprinkler and now that I look back, I wish I had asked you to hold your breath under water for 125 seconds. In any case though, banners 5,6,7 and 8 nearly tied with Alex P, the creator of the illustrated banner and she who induced a “woof, woof” out of many of you. And so I thought in that case, why not use the ones that practically tied, keeps things interesting, rotate shit like I am a professional rotater. And then I realized that if I do that, it’s cruel not to use all of the final contenders and so I decided, everybody’s work is valuable and thus everybody’s work will be showcased.

At the end of this cycle, you will see Alex’s illustrated banner–the animated version of myself, wearing Christopher Kane on top, Chris Benz below, and my little pony Louboutin drag heels on the bottom–hang out a top this blog while I wonder why the fuck her complexion is so much better than mine.


Ok, now, happy Monday!
Stay tuned for a special tribute to monochrome is 5…4…3…2…

    i am a tad disappointed that there is not the "highlight my lady crease" dress image in this banner, but it is a lovely design!

    Great choice! this one its the prettiest and most professional looking. The others are too goofy and amateur.

    love your blog–its a little bit uptown, a little bit downtown, but def. not lower east side (though I love seeing that kind of style!)

    thanks!

    Must say the banner you chose is very "fruity" and looks absolutely yummy! I mean oranges and bananas, looks good enough to eat!
    Nice choice!

    One suggestion is if you really just want to be just to everyone then you could create a code that allows the visitor to see at random selective headers.
