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.

I wrote a Chrome extension that replaces images on sites with pictures of Rillakuma. Will post about it later, busy drawing bears.
