WordPress Theme Development

I’ve finally updated to WordPress 2.5. Great looking interface!

On a similar note I’ve finally decided that I’m going to develop my own WordPress theme. Although I have a bit of knowledge when it comes to CSS and PHP I’m not really clued up on the structure of WordPress, so have always avoided it. Here are my efforts as of today:

The overall idea is to create a WordPress theme that is better suited to a portfolio website than a blog. In the long term I want to be able to have different layouts that are more typical of portfolio websites and also allow integration with Gallery2, which itself will have a modified display to suit portfolio websites.

That is, unless anyone can recommend an existing theme?
