In version 2.7, child themes have been introduced in WordPress. Using Child themes, you can modify (override) all aspects of a Parent theme (e.g. the stylesheet, page templates, functions) without risking to lose any modifications when upgrading the parent theme.

See iThemes and Child Themes – introduction and Child Themes, a quick tutorial.

Child Theme Graphics can also be seen at http://affiliates.ithemes.com/banners-graphics/ithemes/child-theme-graphics/

Listed below are the child themes of Builder that can be downloaded from the member's area (latest at the top):

Covert

Live Demo

A quite stunning in its bold-yet-minimalist style. Similar to its related (sister?) theme Covell, Covert uses a minimalist, monochromatic style, but one that allows photographers and artists to display their work in a more dramatic and darker style.

Covert also includes 2 distinct navigation styles, making it easy to portray just the amount of "minimalism" you want, as well as the custom projects post type, making project organization and display a snap.
