Not only is it an awesome personal blog theme that gives your site some magazine-article-like flair (with two special CSS classes for your images, it’s really great for bloggers that care about adding a dramatic visual presence to their content), but Sugar Cane is a perfect example of what you can do with the Thematic Theme Framework.
If you’re looking at releasing your own Thematic Child Theme, do it. It’s easy, and kinda fun! And note how Sugar Cane is linking into the theme-credit link in the footer. You can do that too with Thematic!
