Grunge is not easy to pull off. It's a lot more than random strokes of the grunge brush. Elliot Jay has quite a knack for it, judging by is beautifully mutilated portfolio. Love the Nars/Mosh typeface, too.

Very nice portfolio also the design but dusty background decreases readability

I'm not so sure he's concerned with readability too much.

Colin: Shouldn't be concerned with readability though?

It's a great site. Interesting use of png images, fixed background image and a nicely proportioned 3-column layout on the front page.

Grunge is not very easy to do, but Elliot seems to do a great job of it.

Thanks for your encouraging comments, guys. :-)

I am concerned about readability, although I agree with Mkavici that the readability is (very slightly) compromised because of the background image. That said, I think it's an acceptable trade-off.
