200,000

At one point of time, I was inspired by thenotebookdoodles to do fancy penmanship, but I guess that didn't last long. I still admire her work and I like to create my own original designs too, so I will work on that when I need to. I do appreciate pretty handwriting but I think my handwriting has gotten uglier over the years of practicing to finish papers quickly. I'd have to be patient with writing if I want to achieve pretty perfect alphabets. I bet she's quick in doing so with all the practice she's been doing. Her handwriting is almost constant! Then again, it's been quite a long time since I've held a pen. The last time was when I had to write cards for our ALP exchange mentors. Even then, it was writing in chinese and my hand ached after a paragraph of writing. oops. 

So, I did the above doodle last year, when the music video came out, although it seemed longer than that. Polaroid photo credits to flickr. So, doing random things like that also help to improve my Photoshopping skills a bit. If not for these, I don't think I'd be so familiar with photoshop today. Plus, typography is always fun. 

The Rocket Summer - 200,000


Introducing one of my favourite singers. He has a very smooth voice and he can play almost any instrument. I'm always amazed at such people. I want to be like them, but I don't think I can. I don't even commit to my piano. His songs are more contemporary christian though. Mostly. But nothing too strong. It's still a nice reminder now and then.

Hehe okay, so here's to me continuing to be crafty even as I pursue a degree in IT.
