Gail's fan gallery gets a slight makeover
Mood:  cheeky

Well, it's so odd, that inspiration can strike at the least likely moment. When I got home tonight, I was looking over the publicity shot that Tom Lisanti sent me, which depicted Gail and two other girls from the Elvis Presley film, 'Girl Happy.'

However, I was faced with a strange problem-where to place this great color photo (one of the few actual color publicity stills I've seen of Gail) without ruining the design asthetic. And then it hit me: let's create a scrapbook! And so, the current images next to Gail's filmography have now been replaced with the cover to the newest feature to Gail's fan gallery.

I designed a nice little cover using Photoshop (btw, the dark pink and black colors are in homage to my high school's colors) , and some inner pages that can be accesed once you click on the book. The pages are layed out as if someone had saved the items in a scrapbook, and typed out the information, and then taped them to the pages. Having had a scrapbook, it's easy to build from experience.

And finally, I went through and added two more banners into the site, setting it up so that each page (that can) will have a unique banner. Each one of course, features a quote from Gail Gerber, Joy Harmon, and Tisha Sterling, that were featured in Tom Lisanti's books. But wait a minute, you may be thinking, what about our gal pal Vicki London? Well, Tom has finally completed the circle, and Vicki will be featured in an interview in Tom's upcoming book, Glamour Girls of Sixties Hollywood. Once I get a chance to review Tom's book, I figure Vicki will join our three other girls in the banner ads, and then all will be well.
