"On My Desk" is a pretty nifty little blog. Calvinrosscarl.com is all up and running and looking very Web 2.OH. :)
In the case of your art and style, I would actually go more professional, since most artists with your kind of "small drawing" style tend to go over the top with the gimmick. You could present yourself in a more professional way than these "other artists" and I imagine gallery-types would just eat it up.
