I’m slowly uploading them to Instagram with my comments! Let’s go, Toronto! The Toronto Defiant made it to the Stage 1 playoffs, but were eliminated in the first round.

Twitter // Twitch

I haven’t been able to successfully export usable files from Twitch or upload them properly to Youtube, so I should spend more time troubleshooting it. I wanted to save them, but the files keep coming out wonky, or fail to be processed, which really sucks. I’m trying to figure out some non-indoor or screen hobbies to do. Maybe work on some toastmaster-y skills.

I started playing main tank in Overwatch. * channels Bumper energy * Admittedly, because I didn’t understand what my off-tank partner wants from me, I’ve been tasked with learning Zarya so I can get a feel for timing. >o<!! Let me bubble you~

Here’s a few of the drafts for Neomo‘s Otaku Theater on TheOASG before we settled on the final.
Neomo's Otaku Theater

 

I redid the graphic style for the “5 Things to Know About” series for TheOASG because it was really hard to do the old template and have it still look good. The gradient was super meh and the important information wasn’t really in the middle, so I rejigged it a bit. The half-tone hides the bad resolution of the images in the background, haha.

Wrote this Pocky SVG progress loader a while back.

Wrote my own version of the SVG star pattern for my web portfolio. The size and position of the stars are randomly generated with JavaScript.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card started airing on Crunchyroll. I made this clear card flip for fun, and it employs the same random size and position background as the stars above, but the opacity is controlled by CSS.

I wrote an animated SVG version of the illustration I created for TheOASG’s feature on tool that manga translators use. The animation is controlled by CSS only, and the cursor changing on hover is achieved with SVG.

Hanging out with a new lettering crew in Toronto! And also attended a r/mk meetup as well, that was fun (and educational).

I think about this keyboard a lot.

In terms of gaming, Monster Hunter: World came out last week, and I’ve been sucked this particular mobile rhythm game…
