to the world of ArtLung.

little picture of me Before going any further, please read the FAQ.

Q:  What the heck does ArtLung mean?
A:  Artist + Respiratory Therapist = ArtLung

Q:  But you call yourself a web designer now?
A:  Indeed I do.

Q:  But then, shouldn't you change it to ArtWeb
      or something more appropriate?
A:  No, because I'm ArtLung.

I'm Joe Crawford, and this is my "home page." I can just hear you saying to yourself, "Great, just what the web needs: another page of a guy and a picture of his cat Fluffy, his bad love poetry and his kewl links!"

Get that out of your head. I have no cat. Well, technically a cat resides in my home, but it's not my cat per se. He's quite cute, I assure you, but you shan't see a picture of him here. You may encounter an extraterrestrial cat, but I don't count felinus alienis.

This is a presentation and communications space for me. A way to display my talents and skills. It's also a great way to meet strange and interesting people.

I know that for some of you, this is one of the first pages you've ever seen. (Note: This means members of my family). So here's a small primer on using web pages.

The menu in the upper left corner is the navigation, a means to get from place to place. Go ahead and click part of it. You can't break anything in here. These pages live on a computer connected to the internet. You are also using a computer connected to the internet. Very democratic, don't you think? Anyway, hit the "home" button to get back here at any time. Cool eh?

Here are the high points:

  • On your first visit, read the newcomer page. It'll tell you a bit more about how these pages came to be. It also includes some ranting about the web which you may find diverting.

  • Want to get personal? Check the biography page. I don't intend it to be narcissistic. I swear. Really. No, really. Hey, if you don't like it, put up your own page. It's easier than you think.

  • Favorite sites is very bookmarkable. Lots of links to worthwhile content. Interesting, useful, silly, fun. It's the only true exit from my Space Age Pupusería.

  • Offering me work? Check out the resume. Facts are simple and facts are straight.

  • My portfolio is fun, I hope. Lots to see. If there's any content here - it's on these pages.

  • I welcome comments, suggestions, insults, and tirades. Flaming is optional, as is whining.

    Send electronic mail to or artlung@earthlink.net. Don't be shy! I enjoy getting email.

So again, welcome, and please remember to keeps your hands and feet inside the car at all times!

An artist must breathe.
