The Personal Website of Robert Heston

My portfolio is expanding. I will now be in the business of building websites. The best way to provide a website with all the whistles & bells quickly is Wordpress. Now links to Wordpress services are included.
Hypercritical Mode Logo I have discontinued Rob's Blog in favor of Hypercritical Mode. Here I will continue to write articles and make posts as I find time. I have added new content recently.
Rob’s Blog is where I write short articles based on my interests often derived from the news I read with links you can find with the Village Spirit pages. There is a lot going on that you will never know from depending on the mass media.
Everyone is welcome to join the discussions at the Forum. Registration is required to participate but the current topics are always visible. Begin a topic and invite others to join in.
I created a new page about philosopy. It has links to various philosophers and others who may not exactly be a philosopher but they will have philsophies that I have appreciated. It can be found under the Interests menu.
My new site design! I’m busy with school but will add new content as time allows. Some things from my old site will be migrated. This website reflects my interests and will promote my skills. Enjoy.

The Village Spirit pages link to sites for independent news, activism, and choice articles. Learn from the real news, find good causes, and join them. United, we have the power to change the world.
The School menu holds some examples of my schoolwork. I will be adding some web tech examples but I have also enjoyed taking classes outside of the Web Technologies curriculum.


Canyon Scene with Eagle

Created with color pencil, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I refined the upper-central design for the Village Spirit pages from the original color pencil media. The music is the album Spiritchaser by Dead Can Dance. The original drawing was rather large. I did the color pencil drawing while I was healing from a broken leg on the left and a shotgun wound in the right leg. I was in the rescue mission in Greenville, SC because I was unable to support myself. I was walking in time to begin the Fall semester at Greenville Tech in 1993. Recently (2013) I drew the “Great Spirit” design at the top in Adobe Illustrator to use as the logo for my Village Spirit pages. I had looked through some books from the library that featured American Indian arts.
