Back to Work

Returned to work on Wed. after a much needed LNY holiday to rest. Slept a lot during the holidays and managed to complete drawing all 100 postcard fai-chuns for the year of the 🐉. Mailed out most of them to my friends in Canada. Saw my fai-chuns displayed at a few small shops near the […]

LNY 2024

Completed my annual fai-chun writing exercise on Wednesday. Wrote more than 100 fai-chuns this year in total, a personal record. Worked till around 10pm on Thursday because I didn’t want to go back to the studio on Friday. Prepared and brought home all the things I needed to work on the annual 100 postcard fai-chun […]

Tiring Week

Missed my weekly journal entry last week because I was super exhausted after a fai-chun writing event in Tai Po last Sunday. Apparently, that was just a prelude to a crazy week filled with meetups and bad news. It started from Monday early afternoon when I had a meet up with a couple of friends […]

Craziness Before Q4 Break

Skipped my weekly journal entry last week because I was overwhelmed by things that I needed to finish up before my early flight on Wed morning. At the studio, I managed to finish fixing a cable-stayed bridge model, groomed the countless cacti and succulents, and completed a last minute request from a client to have […]

Procrastinating… 😖

There’s only a bit over a week left before my scheduled Q4 break. Had been working long hours each day this past week. Finally completed a 3D printing commission and had the prints delivered and paid for. Thankful for this first ever 3D modeling and printing opportunity, it boosted my confidence in persevering in this […]

Meetups and Work

Had 6 meetup meals this past week, 3 of which with my parents, 1 with my calligraphy class, 1 with my fellowship b&s, and a spontaneous one with a couple of old UW friends whom I haven’t met for years! As much as I enjoyed meeting and catching up with family and friends, I started […]

Mid-Q3… Progressing

It had been a pretty busy week. Started an evening workshop on Tue to learn about making independent illustrated zines. I’m tinkering on the idea of making a small story book for KOKB. Two more lessons to go, will see whether my inkling will provide enough fuel for me to actually do the story book […]

Back to Normal

Have had a considerably productive week at the studio. Finished setting up a new 3D printer and had been testing it nonstop. Took the opportunity to assess my inventory of 3DP filaments and printed out many DEXTER minifigs – my studio’s mascot. Also finished prototyping some scout minifigs and shown them to a potential client. […]

Bye-bye Q2

After writing out the last character from the book of 1000 Chinese character samples on Mon., a huge relief was immediately felt. The rest of the week was taken relatively lightly as I soak in my greatest achievement of the Q2 projects! Most other Q2 projects will carry on to Q3 untouched 😅. Before getting […]

Q2 Transitioning

Started executing my ambitious Q2 plan after the Easter holidays. Managed to keep up my weekly calligraphy goals while adding a new 5-class seal carving course. Picked up my order of handcrafted paper yesterday, will try to setup an online store to offer my calligraphy works in coming weeks. The calligraphy work, which I still […]
