Paninindigan ko na ang pagka-‘artist’ ko (kuno).
I’ve been ignoring this blog for the longest time. I sometimes show up and post something like an Instagram post recap (pfft), but nothing of real substance. I’ve been making plans in my head about changing my theme and the layout, but I have never gotten to it, until today. It still needs a lot of tweaking, but I’ll have to do them another time.
One of the changes that I made was changing my blog from a ‘lifestyle and travel blog’ to an ‘art and travel’ blog. Because let’s face it, I’ve never written a single post on lifestyle in a looooong time since calligraphy and lettering have taken over my life. And I’m planning to be more serious about practicing the art, so I would probably be posting more about topics related to it anyway.
Also lately, I’ve been more visible on my Instagram account because of the 100-day project. I wanted my posts to automatically update on this site so I’ve installed an Instagram plugin so I could finally place my feed on the sidebar. This way, I won’t have to put you through those horrible recaps.
I have a few travel and art posts lined up, and I’ll try my best to get to them in the coming weeks. I’ll see you around!
Today marks the 50th day of the 100-Day Project. I’ve stuck to it for 50 friggin’ days! That’s more than what I expected. Here’s a quick look at all those 50 posts! (I haven’t been religiously updating the blog for recaps every week, sorry!)
I’ve improved a bit on my style and there are less and less inconsistencies on my slants. It is also not as wiggly and shaky as it used to! There are off days, though. Ugh, I hate it when it happens.
I have to admit, I am not as dedicated as I should be. Sometimes, I am so tired to even pick up a pen. On those days, I tend to be more lenient on quality control (which is quite often! T_T). But I’m proud of myself for sticking to it. 50 more days to go! Let’s do this!
I am hoping to post more watercolor calligraphy. I’ve been travelling the whole month of May and I didn’t bring most of my tools. This is why I’ve been using a lot of my Zig Cocoiro Letter Pens.
So, here goes my third week. I used to think this would get easier, but it doesn’t. It’s actually kind of the opposite! There are days when it’s hard to find inspiration to write even just a word. TT_TT. On the brighter side, I’ve been learning a lot and starting to develop my own style. I’m still not there, but I’m discovering that there are ways that I like and work for me, and try to avoid those that don’t.
