First Jab

Took my first of two COVID19 vaccination needles on Friday. The past week seemed to be centred around that single event. Dined out with my parents and sister on Tuesday, they talked me out of submitting a proposal for a small commercial unit at an artsy establishment that previously turned me down. They think I […]

Easter Weekend

This marathon social distancing practice is really soaking the life out of me. When can we all leave our masks behind and meet face to face again? Have been keeping myself busy with studio work, calligraphy practice, and cartooning. One of the breakthrough this week was making a protective visor with 3D printing and standard […]
