I haven’t had much time to upload drawings, but I have been working on my other projects.
Pomodoro Clock (Free Code Camp)
This took a lot longer than I expected, mostly because when I fixed one problem, another would arise, even if the original one was fixed. Also, would not recommend using YUI PureCSS as a framework, as Yahoo is no longer maintaining it, and it doesn’t play nice with Codepen.
Static Blog on Github
I figured out enough to use the Git bash with Hexo and run it locally. Destroyed my portfolio repo several times before I realized I needed to generate the blog first, then make the repo. Still need to deploy it live to Github Pages.
I will be spending more time on this for the next two weeks, as I seriously neglected it in favour of solving what was wrong with my pomodoro clock. Starting to learn three.js for the vizualization component, and I finally, finally learned how to served a page properly with a Python server on Google App Engine at the suggestion of my mentor.
Graphic for TheOASG- Interview With Ann Yamamoto: On Dubs, Time of Eve, and Skip Beat.
I took part in the third edition of “It’s Not My Fault TheOASG Podcast Is Not Popular.” Empty threats, I tell you!
The OASG Podcast Episode 3 – Fire Emblem and Friends: Muse, Justin, and I talk about Fire Emblem Fates (3DS), anime Kickstarters, and Netflix moving further into anime with the announcement of creating a show titled Perfect Bones with Production IG (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Psycho-Pass, Kuroko’s BasketBall, among many others). I really want to go over to someone’s house and marathon Ajin when it comes out April 12 on Netflix…”will trade Netflix for company and popcorn.”
I’m still working on the projects on Free Code Camp, though very slowly, and often I get stuck going in the wrong direction. Most recently, I have created a cat-shaped calculator, and I’m still working on the Pomodoro clock project. MLS commented that half the time spent on the zipline projects are actually research, which is surprisingly true.

I’m currently learning PHP (and SQL, but it’s not a language) at work — and absorbing a lot from the more senior designers. I tend to not think about scale, since I’ve mostly worked on small projects, so this is something I’ve been trying to put into practice.
I’m not entirely sure where this will go. When I was asked by my mentor why I was interested in the Learn IT, Girl program, I was a little hesitant in my answering. I am interested in programming for fun, and hopefully to use towards an interactive art practice in the future, and learning web development seems like a detour in itself. But I really am enjoying myself, there are challenges I can’t solve alone (in a timely fashion).
It exists. *I don’t own a Macbook, despite the drawing.
I’m a little interested in motion graphic design (and maybe VR) in the future, but as usual, one step at a time.
Gif that didn’t turn out so well.
Happy Lunar New Year!

Bonus: 心想事成 x Immenseness Ticket S for Robostrike! Hopefully we’ll hunt together again when Monster Hunter X comes out in English.
金猴年到 – “Golden monkey year is here.” Furious Rajang is written as “金獅子”(golden lion), but I chose the monkey interpretation.
出入平安 – “May your travels be safe.”
年年有余 – “May you have surplus and remainders year after year.” 余 sounds like 魚(fish).
心想事成 – “May your wishes come true.” I am reading 心想 as “heart’s desire.”
