Goodbye Rdio

Rdio is shutting down (for now). I ended my subscription a long time ago, but went on to get a copy of my playlists etc. Here’s something I got out of their export site:

rdio

Ha! The angst.

 

rdio-etc

And that only reminds me to go on a Oasis/Grimes/Gorillaz/instrumental writing music kick right now. Loading up Genie Music now, and hopefully they have these foreigner tracks available.

Full uppercase

Obviously, this still needs major fixing: cleaning, sizing, kerning, minimizing points, smoothing out, making sure they look uniform, etc etc etc. But I now have my rough draft of a full set of uppercase letters!

Regular lettering

sorryxsorry

Hm. I meant to do a Regular all this while, but it looks like yesterday’s EFGH was turning out to be an italic. So today, I started working on the regular set I was supposed to be doing. This isn’t perfected yet, of course – it’s still the rough draft. I majorly need to work on S.

Not abandoning the italic, though. I’ll get there eventually.

Today has been brought to you by

… the letters E, F, G, and H!

efgh

And that’s an excerpt of a font I’m working on, aimed at comic lettering. I still need to fix some bits and pieces about these letters – I’m particulary unhappy with the letter G.

And that’s just 4 letters out of the entire upper+lowercase alphabet and a bunch of numbers and symbols and special characters.

Heavy snow

thursday

I woke up to a heavy torrent of snow and wind on Thursday. Snow from all directions except from below! I walked to work with an umbrella but ended up coated in snow anyway. It was amazing, I loved it!

Also, the fresh snow means that I can walk without worrying about cracking my skull open on the pavement.

It’s also a little warmer, compared to snowless days. This has been the heaviest amount of snow I’ve seen, during my time in South Korea.

 

teafoils

This week, I was asked why I was keeping condoms on my desk. I almost yelled, “It’s tea!” I’m just trying to have a vaguely flavored hot beverage on hand, in this concrete building!
