If this makes no sense to you, you can take Web Bos’ CSS Grid course for free to learn more about it. It’s not as confusing as I’m making it out to be.
I don’t think I shared this here, but here are some CSS grid graphics I made for Twitter shitposting.
CSS Grid in the style of the Osomatsu-san logo, with red capitals and a black and white outline.

Been busy, so my lettering Instagram went quiet. I’ll tackle my weekly postings when I’m feeling a bit better.

I recently completed a project with Manga In Your Ears, “a biweekly podcast reviewing a finished and currently running (or recently completed) manga from @ImpassionateK, @manjiorin, and @WanderinDreamr” (aka Kory, Apryll, and Helen). You can check them out online and on Twitter.

The general concept was to have the name as well as manga volumes and headphones, so here are some ways we played around with to get the legibility and concept across. I think from listening to the podcast, the general feeling I get is educational, informative, and entertaining. It’s fun to listen to!

New TheOASG social media banners. Maybe I should illustrate something better next time…

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…

I haven’t been cross-posting my lettering work to this blog this year, and I feel a bit of regret about that, since I need to go back and figure it out which ones are missing. Until then, here’s my summary for the year.

I didn’t really have any particular reason for starting the Instagram, I originally was thinking about it when I started sketching lettering things I wanted to exist as merchandise or logo designs, but so far it has been fun.

“Best 9” for the year 2017, apparently.
