Amanda Hawkins, my awesome sister-in-law (and the builder/designer of this site) is creating a collage a day on Instagram for #The100DayProject. Here are a few of my favorite pieces of her art, but you really should just follow Amanda on Instagram.

Let me tell you a little bit about my dear friend, sister-in-law, and occasional bandmate, Amanda Hawkins of Ahhh Design.

Amanda is a web developer and designer who, among other talents, builds websites and custom themes in WordPress, open source web software for websites and blogs. She designed my first website and the newer version you’re currently viewing.

Amanda Hawkins knows how to build a website into a piece of art that’s organic and textured while incorporating impressive, customized development work, like my site’s albums/music section and its smooth mobile and tablet friendly responsive design. (Just adjust the width of this window or view the site on a different device to see how it adapts to different screen sizes.)

Even with very little constructive feedback from me (I’m always like, “This looks great!” and “I love it!” – in my defense, it does look great and I do love it) Amanda created a website that visually represents my personality, story and music more accurately than I could ever imagine.

Amanda also designed the art and layout for most of my albums and even handmade the booklets for throwing mud at your streetlight. You can hear her sing and play bass on “the name of every building (52-33)” from 52 of 28:
