A background image to suit my homepage. See this template? http://themeelite.com/demos/flato/template-1/
If you click this, you can see the style / design of my website. The image you will be designing will be the image that will go behind 'I'm Jonathan Doe' (or in my case it will be 'Kiyan Sobhani').
So what are you desgning? I'll leave it up to you to be creative, but I'll just tell you abit about myself.
I'm a writer and entrepeneur. Specifically, I write about basketball (mostly the Toronto Raptors) and European football (mostly about Real Madrid).
My business? I own Humani-T Cafe (http://humanitea.com)
I like to have tremendous fun in all my fields of work, I like to make connections, and I like to distinguish myself in everything I do.
I want the image to be fun, but unique and creative enough so that people will never think it's a stock image. They need to know that it was an image custom created for my website. It could have my name on it, or it could have an illustration of my face - maybe as a charicature or penciled drawing? Who knows, maybe it doesn't need my face at all? (I've attached pictures of my face in case).
That's up to you. I'll go with the one I think suits best, and provide plenty of feedback along the way.
