  • The larger a body, the more slowly it moves

    GoDaddy was making me want to brain myself (IIS6 with PHP in safe mode!!!! ARRRRGHHHHHH), so I took a break, bought a swashy font (Parfumerie Script Pro) off my wishlist, and went to town setting a sentence and then tracing it with a metallic gel pen. Might have to frame this one and put it in my office as a patience reminder.

    Decided to relax after writing practice by making something cute and in my own basic handwriting. Chinito is Adrian’s family’s nickname for him. Funny how a Chinese girl managed to marry a Costa Rican nicknamed Chinese. Or maybe it makes 100% sense. Also note that my natural handwriting is very much straight up and down – a clear indicator of my Type A personality. The proper 55° slant is proving very difficult for me.

    Chinito ?

  • First ornamental script writing class

    Pretty happy with how this is going. I like this whole “being inspired to do something analog by something digital” thing.
