Weebly is a great, free, easy to use website builder which is ideal for artists who need a professional web presence but don't want to deal with all the technical issues. Here we feature King and Monkey, an artist duo who use the service themselves.King and Monkey describe themselves as: "An odd couple, meeting by a series of unfortunate coincidences. They have nothing in common expect for a love of art.ing provokes, Monkey soothes. King is highbrow, Monkey is primitive. They push each other to greater heights with a playful disregard for each others work."
So we asked them how they found working with Weebly and setting up a free site to promote themselves and their work.
"We don't have much technical skill/knowledge, especially when it comes to the internet, but we managed to set up our own website with Weebly. All the 'hard word' (coding) is done for you, all you have to do is input the information you want, upload the photographs and you're away.
There are a huge selection of templates for you to chose from. We wanted a clean and simple one, which would not detract from our art but you can go to the other extreme if you wish. Also if you happen to be one of those weirdos who know how to use html or dreamweaver or whatever you can also do the coding yourself! We on the other hand get headaches just saying the work programming
Happy weeblying - King and Monkey." www.kingandmonkey.com
