Every month since August 2003, the blog has sported a different graphic at the top of the page. I soon got into the habit of drawing and scanning a new image each month, but then I progressed to the point where I was filling entire pages of sketch pads with ideas. Right now, I have enough banners drawn to keep me going well into the 2020s. I even have a spreadsheet to keep track of the things and make sure I don't repeat myself, which is faintly disturbing.
The subject matter has always been a mixture of dreadful puns mixed with allusions to movies I've enjoyed, references to other aspects of popular culture, cod-philosophical meanderings, and obscure jokes that I seriously doubt anyone else will get. You can see them all on this page, with the newest at the top. Clicking on each image will take you to the month in the blog archives when that banner was used.
