Rainy Week

Joined a friend’s paper-making course the last minute and started off the week with the first of four long classes on Monday. I joined the time-demanding course mainly just to show support for the paper artisan friend, but it turned out to be more interesting than expected. I can actually picture myself experimenting with making […]

LEGO Inspirations

I’ve been toying around with LEGO again since working on upgrading my studio’s mascot a month or so ago. Strolled through the LEGO store a few weeks back after my calligraphy class and found one of the recently released botanical series to be on sale. I couldn’t resist and bought the big box set, first […]

Made considerable progress on my mini letterpress prototype, will need a week or more to finish the prototype for friends to test. Just sparked up a few cool ideas recently about products that I can potentially collaborate with friends even after I move back to Canada, will do some prototypes and discuss with friends in […]

I also decided to upgrade the studio’s mascot – DEXTER. In the process, I tried to reverse engineer and 3D print LEGO bricks. While […]

Prototyping…

Didn’t have much social meetups on weekdays this past week. I decided to finish up the Chinese calligraphy homework I brought over to do. Wrote a few hundred characters to complete the “hundred surnames” (百家姓), this will be further developed into products and teaching materials later. The 3D printer I bought during Black Friday sale […]

In the past week or so, I had been experimenting with a few materials (bamboo skewers, straws, etc.) to prototype some products I had been dreaming up for a long time. Found the perfect sustainable material for my […]

LEGO Minifigs

My studio neighbour stopped by on Mon. and talked about a project that needed to make figurines for a diorama display. After some discussions, he decided to make custom Lego minifigs. While experimenting and prototyping, I got carried away and shrunk my studio’s mascot into the scale of Lego minifigs. When the custom designed and […]

Church/JF Reunion

Joined a fellowship’s brother’s wedding yesterday. The preparation began a few months ago when the groom-to-be asked for my help to design the ceremony rundown printout. It was the first time I saw the actual physical print yesterday morning when I was helping with the church decorations before the ceremony. It turned out better than […]

Social Isolation

The government announced that it will extend its current unreasonably strict pandemic measures for 2 more weeks into the CNY holidays. Besides my weekly calligraphy class meetup and a consultation session at a paper artisan workshop, my time this week was mostly spent at the studio and at home. Had a funny thought this morning […]
