This is typography and web design practice to see if I can come up with a nice no frills design for a microblog. Not sure how much I'm going to use it. One liners and sketches go here.
THIS ISN'T PARTICULARLY CHRONOLOGICAL, BUT THE NEWER ONES ARE CLOSER TO THE TOP.
I haven't eaten a naan for more than a year.
It's interesting how little I post in this format when there is no incentive for likes and retweets.
WHY AM I SOFT IN THE MIDDLE NOW? WHY AM I SOFT IN THE MIDDLE THE REST OF MY LIFE IS SO HARD.
This entire website is written with the assumption that nobody actually bothers to read it.
WHEN THE WORLD IS NO MORE, THE MOON IS ALL WE'LL SEE, I'LL ASK YOU TO FLY AWAY WITH ME
I just learned how to use the sections tag. Very useful for cleaning up website layouts.
It seems like drawing is the only way I can cope with pandemic stress.
I'm drawing quite a lot, but nothing is really worth uploading. This probably makes me look like a better artist than I actually am.

"The Artist is not a painter of trees, but of their broader and more general features; he cannot therefore pretend to depict them precisely and minutely, because he cannot see them either on the masses of Light or of Shade." -J.D.Harding
Writing section upgrade completed.
Sorting through my writing and reorganising the writing page behind the scenes.
AND I WILL CONTINUE RUNNING
Why do I feel like real life ended in 2020 and now I'm just in some strange warped version of the world.
The gallery section back up again!
The gallery section is finally getting an overhaul. Putting on my curator hat and changing up the format.
Digital gardens sure are a rabbit hole to explore. I wonder how I can implement it on this site.
A good thing about online meetings is I can turn my camera off and do my inking.
Just changed the background for this page. The illustration took me a week, most of it was just waiting. The final inks were just a couple of hours.
Human history makes perfect logical sense if you assume that all humans are insane.
Qanon and Antivaxx are Chuunibyou for boomers.
THE LEGENDARY GARGANTUAN'S POWER WILL RIP APART THE WORLD
Been looking into redesigning the gallery section. Too many images and it's started to load a bit slow, so I need to reorganise the whole thing.
Wrestling with @font-face isn't fun at all.
Cobras have really big innocent eyes. They're quite shy animals as well. They even open their hood to warn you. Such nice polite creatures.
Getting vaccinated was surpisingly fast and hassle free. With Covid powerless against me, I am now unstoppable.
I THOUGHT I REACHED THE END, THE END OF A LONG LONG JOURNEY...
I've made it a rule to use only web safe fonts for this website. They don't look too bad if you use them sparingly.
After all these years, I'm finally beginning to appreciate Helvetica.
WHERE ARE YOU GOING WHEN ARE YOU COMING HOME?
I'm not a half-empty or a half-full person. I'm just happy that I have a glass.
Centipede stings are surprisingly mild. Less painful than a bee, wasp or even an army ant.
Sublime suffering or cheap happiness? -Yes please.
A WIND BLOWING AT 40 METERS PER SECOND
I'd like to think of this as some sort of alternate reality microblog, where things happened differently and twitter wasn't a thing.
I think I'd prefer hell over heaven. Hell is full of suffering, and that means that it's far closer to the experience of living than heaven.
THE RANDOM EMPTY SPACES ARE PART OF THE DESIGN
Between kufr and iman, and half remembered rubaiyat by long lost Persian poets. I will meet you there
"THINGS THAT ARE COMPLEX ARE NOT USEFUL. THINGS THAT ARE USEFUL ARE SIMPLE"
Centering these lines was a nightmare.
"MAIN TRANS ENGINE:
No. 1 2 ON.
No. 3 4 OFF.
No. 5 6 7 8 ON."
