New header to celebrate site's 1st anniversary

I created "All about Tahmoh Penikett" on March 13, 2005 (after "Hand of God," but before "Colonial Day" for those keeping track). Now a year and 55,000 visitors later, I'm happy the site is still going strong while we wait for season 3 to premiere in October.

If you've been visiting for a while, you might remember the oh-so-momentous switch from 2 to 3 columns or the introduction of the poll--innovations I felt equal to accomplishing. But to celebrate the site's one year anniversary, I needed help from other fans and proposed a contest to design a new header for the site, hosted by bstg_icontest.

There were nearly a dozen terrific entries, which you can see here. After a flurry of voting, the winner and designer of the site's beautiful new header was the talented wav.

For your viewing pleasure, here are the two runners up:

I hope everyone enjoys the new header and continues to enjoy visiting the site!

As always I love to hear your feedback. You can comment on this post or you can email me.


  1. Yikes! That was kind of a shock when I opened up the page with my assistant in the office. :-)
    That face is large and in charge.
    Now that I am used to it, I think it looks good (although I like the runner up entries as well). Cool!

  2. Thanks! It does take some adjustment I'll admit. Just scroll quickly down and it'll disappear though. :)
