Microblog

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.

Best wishes, 3.6.2021

I've finally started using RSS. It definitely helps with my reading.


A bit distracted, 25 Oct 2021

I'm such a boring person that this website is one of my most shameful secrets.


Doing well, 22 Oct 2021

The Entry Grade Gundam is a really fun kit to build. Good color separation and some really great engineering.


Pleasantly surprised, 11 Oct 2021

A couple more weeks of clearing through work, then I can actually spend some time on passion projects. I have a backlog of stuff that needs to be uploaded.


Clearing the stack, 23 Sept 2021

Mooncake season is here again. I've been eating a lot of red bean ones, but I haven't had a lotus paste one yet.


Still thinking about food, 18 Sept 2021

Tibetan Momos are delicious dumplings. I'd like to try them again sometime in the future.


Kind thoughts, 15 Sept 2021

THIS TOO SHALL PASS...

When I have to deal with people problems, I ask myself: What would you do if they were a cute anime girl?


See you soon, 31 Aug 2021

YES MY SWEET, YES MY SWEETEST, I WANT TO GET BACK WHERE YOU ARE...

I've been taking a lot of photos. Some are actually good so they won't go up here. This website is reserved for the terrible experimental stuff.


Procrastinating, 28 Aug 2021

Time to start overhauling the photography section.


Under construction, 24 Aug 2021

I'm tempted to buy a Raspberry Pi and camera module and try to build a digital camera. But I won't be dumb and impulsive. I'm an adult.


Cheers, 22 Aug 2021

I'm not in my 30s, I'm an Epic level 10 year-old.


Off on adventures, 21 Aug 2021

Work is picking up again so less time for drawing.


Regrettably, 21 Aug 2021

Got my vaccine sorted out. Now with 2 doses.


One step closer to safety, 15 Aug 2021

I'm surprised that I actually liked the last Evangelion movie.


That's all I have to report, 15 Aug 2021

Missed a vaccine appointment because I mistook the 13th for the 15th. Dyslexia will be the end of me.


Still surviving, 15 Aug 2021

MOSURA YA MOSURA
DONGAN KASAKUYAN INDO MUU..

I regularly quote Char Aznable, but my friends never get the reference. I hope it makes me look cool and mysterious.

I want to build an old school web page that uses table instead div. But I have no ideas on what to put on it.


Signing off, 5 Aug 2021

ECCM ON. NUMBER 2 GOING. 3.2.1. FIRE!

Am I the only the one that remembers Bert's Dinosaurs?


Cheers, 4 Aug 2021

I haven't eaten a naan for more than a year.


Regretfully, 29 July 2021

It's interesting how little I post in this format when there is no incentive for likes and retweets.


With thanks, 28 July 2021

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.


In good health, 16 July 2021

See you soon, 15.vii.2021

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.


With regards, 12 July 2021

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.

Writing section upgrade completed.


Construction complete, 29 June 2021

Sorting through my writing and reorganising the writing page behind the scenes.


Constructing, 27 June 2021

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.


Catch up later, 25 June 2021

The gallery section back up again!


Construction complete, 24 June 2021

A small preview, 23.6.2021

The gallery section is finally getting an overhaul. Putting on my curator hat and changing up the format.


Working behind the scenes, 23 June 2021

Digital gardens sure are a rabbit hole to explore. I wonder how I can implement it on this site.


Warm regards, 23 June 2021

A good thing about online meetings is I can turn my camera off and do my inking.


Your correspondence, 22 June 2021

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.


Back to our regular schedule, 22 June 2021

Human history makes perfect logical sense if you assume that all humans are insane.


Keep in touch, 18 June 2021

DON'T STOP

Qanon and Antivaxx are Chuunibyou for boomers.


See you later, 14 June 2021

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.


Your correspondence, 14 June 2021

Wrestling with @font-face isn't fun at all.


See you later, 13 June 2021

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.


Goodbye, 11 June 2021

Getting vaccinated was surpisingly fast and hassle free. With Covid powerless against me, I am now unstoppable.


From the front, 11.vi.2021

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.


At your service, 11.vi.2021

After all these years, I'm finally beginning to appreciate Helvetica.


With regards, 11.vi.2021

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.


Don't drown out there, 10.vi.2021

Centipede stings are surprisingly mild. Less painful than a bee, wasp or even an army ant.


In good health, 9.vi.2021

Sublime suffering or cheap happiness? -Yes please.


Be well, 9.vi.2021

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.


Best wishes, 9.vi.2021

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.
