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.

I wrote a Chrome extension that replaces images on web pages with images of Rillakuma, using Daniel Shiffman’s Coding Train video tutorials.

Screenshot of all the images in Google search showing Rillakuma.

Pretty happy with the way these photos came out. I don’t actually own Yuri’s pair skate outfit, he is wearing Victor’s outfit, and I combined two different photos to have the appearance of them appearing in the same photo. See more of my lettering on my Instagram.
