Just under 4 hours, Adobe Illustrator.

This is a mock-up for a presentation brochure I designed for DrawSplash. Proofreading and layout, infographics to be redone at a later date.

There’s something distinctly post-colonial in flavour about donating blood. There were many questions asking where I was born, where I’ve been, who I’ve been with; none of the location questions pertained to the area in Asia where most of my relatives were. It was a bit nerve-wracking to see other people fainting and such, but I thought it was worth trying at least once to see what it would be like.

I’ll leave this here for now, until I have a bit more time. I think I might have given up on the idea that I will be one of those people that create “pretty” fanart.

This heat is barely tolerable. @__@

I ended up tagging along with Robostrike to explore the UW School of Architecture campus in Cambridge. I’m looking forward to going back to explore it a bit more…the people there are also interesting enough in themselves. I think the most eye-opening part was getting a chance to visit the studio space where the architects-to-be build their projects.

Apparently for their Cultural History class, they have to stage a play. The second year class will be performing Ilion from July 29-30 (3 shows) at the Tannery in Kitchener. I think they deserve a little support, don’t you think? ^^

Alright, enough procrastination on this post, end-of-term report, prepare to be defeated! FIGHT!

Thro’ the Rye

Off to the Toronto Comics Art Festival this weekend!

People have returned to campus…nothing to report, other than nesting geese have stopped attacking hapless students and staff. For the moment.

Comin Thro’ The Rye
Robert Burns

O Jenny’s a’ weet, poor body,
Jenny’s seldom dry:
She draigl’t a’ her petticoatie,
Comin thro’ the rye!

Comin thro’ the rye, poor body,
Comin thro’ the rye,
She draigl’t a’ her petticoatie,
Comin thro’ the rye!

Gin a body meet a body
Comin thro’ the rye,
Gin a body kiss a body,
Need a body cry?

Gin a body meet a body
Comin thro’ the glen,
Gin a body kiss a body,
Need the warld ken?

Gin a body meet a body
Comin thro’ the grain,
Gin a body kiss a body,
The thing’s a body’s ain.
