Baby’s First OTP Feels: a Tale of Regret
Ahahah oh man an amazing thing that actually happened??? NO Baby girl you are too young for this life and pain.
Her mom thinks it’s hilarious and gave me permission to make a comic out of it? It’s awesome that she has all the Disney movies at her house, and they didn’t know about Miyazaki before! Now they do and watch it with her!I let her watch Totoro weeks after that! She got really into it too!

What’s in a word

ctvo:

After I got out of grade school and was no longer required to note down in script, I have already been accustomed to writing similar to a computer font in consistent precision (below is a collage for you to scrutinize). Not that I am complaining, but sometimes I wish I have the courage to write loosely just like how Walt Whitman, Lewis Carroll, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jane Austen do.

I know some people do not even bother about handwritings and fonts, but because of my background in graphic design, I cannot help but think that these are integral elements in communicating ideas and emotions. I always wish I have that skill to write beautifully and come up with my own typefaces instead of spending too much time looking for the perfect font.

This desire pushed me to search about calligraphy and enticed me to join a scribble workshop by inkscribbler.com.

In class, we were at first asked to finish some pencil exercises to make us experts in brushing up and pressing down – skills that are necessary to perfect the art of calligraphy.

Then, we were introduced to the flexible nib, the part of the writing tool that produces lines which vary in width depending on the pressure that we use.

This tool looks itty-bitty, but with it comes great wonders.

After making friends with the tools, setting the stage for writing, and learning about the different slants, strokes, and height of letters, we were already asked to take the plunge and come up with our very own calligraphed art.

It may seem easy but it is not. Finding the right pressure and comfort in writing is a very painstaking experience. If we press the nib too hard we will get a distorted width and if we press too light we will get feathered edges.

It is impossible to master this art in a three-hour class, but at least having this good head start makes me feel that I am now equipped to practice calligraphy on my own.

Kudos to Alexis and her team!
