- BEHIND THE SCENES (sort of): A NEW COPYRIGHT MESSAGE will be phased in over the first few months of 2016. Rather than a
text message, it will be a transparent image with the text. This alteration will allow the change of the Copyright date each year to be
done by replacing a single image, rather than updating hundreds of text fields. While this change is phased in, some pages will still show
a 2015 Copyright date, however the site is up to date on its Copyright protection.
For those that wondered, there was no Fall, 2015 update to the website. In late Summer, I was
involved in a serious car accident that had me incapacitated for a while. I needed the time to
recover and take care of the affairs from the aftermath of the accident. I want to thank all the
fans of Rollsign Gallery who sent well wishes over social media. It was greatly appreciated!
