erin’s sketchbook is a minimal WordPress theme we built for ourselves a couple years ago. It’s designed to be a good theme for art or photography, using a black background and minimal design to draw attention to the art or photography. It was based on another theme we did before that, Simple Black which, like Simple Gray, was a minimalist blog theme based around Kubrik. Since the two were closely related, we combined them, offering a theme options page to choose which style you prefer. We also added Twitter @anywhere hovercards, WordPress 3.0 menus, installation notes, and Google’s Droid Sans web font.

This theme, inspired by vintage Indian batiks and tapestries, exudes grace and sophistication. 6 color palettes are available so you can choose the one to fit your mood, office or season. Built into the theme are our normal treasure trove of customized social networking icons, automagic Twitter hovercards for @usernames and configurable tweet displays, and social bookmarking options on posts. The theme is optimized for readability and includes built-in WordPress post thumbnails, custom nav menu and widgetized sidebar and footer.
