Chris Gash: Illustrator
Chris needed a place to display a formal portfolio and also offer a platform for writing and sharing process work. (He actually realized he did even more stuff than that and ended up making a sketchblog, too.)
http://chrisgash.com uses a custom WordPress theme with a portfolio plugin tailored to large galleries with thumbnails. The homepage feature is triggered by using a specific category, and is excluded from the blog. I also made a help section that contains Wordpress info specific to his setup.
