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.

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

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!

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

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?

Signing off, 10.vi.2021

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.

Take care, 9.vi.2021

Between kufr and iman,
and half remembered

I will meet you there

Until we meet next time, 10.vi.2021

Centering these lines was a nightmare.
