the site

site name: Ettudis
owner: Ans » more about her here
ever since: November 27th, 2009
host: Misaki at three-words.net
sentiments: the site is purely a pastime for me. It's a way for me to experience a different expression of art and share that with everyone. My styles have really evolved over the years since I started graphic-making and it makes me really happy to see others appreciating and using things I offer on this site. I hope to inspire other artists out there and continue to design graphics and provide resources to accomodate a wider audience.

name

Ettudis is essentially a french phrase "Et tu dis" jumbled together to form one word. Translated, it means "and you say..." The scenario goes something like a friend or lover, reflecting or thinkingly deeply about the words his/her friend or signifcant other has said. The idea is to ellicit a feeling of contemplation, wonder or perplexion at the thoughts of others. It doesn't really make much sense but I thought the word altogether looked really pretty and neat.

history

Me and my friend, Mel, had owned a site previously known as PinkSuite which was hosted by Sarah at dumb- intelligence.net. After a while, Mel decided to leave because she just wasn't as interested in graphics anymore so it was just me left. Then, we ran into some server problems and I had to move. The girls at colour-theory.org offered to host me and I ecstatically accepted this new home.

Then, I decided to leave the graphics scene and closed down PinkSuite (and temporarily moved to livejournal). After about half a year, I missed making graphics so much that I decided to re-open. I found a new name for my site and the C-T staff were kind enough to accept me as a hostee again. Thus Ettudis opened on november 27th, 2009. Then, in March 2011, due to personal reasons, I decided to change hosts so voilà, here you have it!
