Hey! Everyone - the Metropolitan Museum of Art has a load of free art/art history books
I'm on the directory! (both here and on @sajan )
I've put #poc and #decolonize, because I think it'd be cool to find more POC artists. I don't know how appropriate the latter is - but it's the most succinct tag I could think of that describes my interest in the representation of non-eurocentric arts in general.

finally, a larger sectin showing my handwriting in general. As you see, it can be legible, but my main problem is that I have zero consistency - which is unfortunately something that I carry over to my neater capitalised print writing (eg: I sometimes write an E straight, sometimes more like a backwards 3.)
Either way, I think the variation in the loops/lack of loops (of the y's, g's etc.) looks pretty fun here

if you're wondering if I never cross my t's, sometimes I cross the HELL outta them.
handwriting/art (3) Show more
What I'm really wondering is if I can use this in my art somehow. I like how this word ('rather') is on the line very well, but form-wise is kind of mountain shaped. I like that line that connects the a and h, with the t proppped up between them. Also enjoying that the comma is at a near-perfect 90º.

This was the word ('was') that prompted me to take photos. I really like how it looks out of context.

I've got a bit of a complex about my handwriting. I can draw well, I can emulate nice writing well, but my natural handwriting is very bad and I got a lot of crap for it at school. I normally write in capitalised print, so I don't even see my own cursive handwriting much - but I just now I had to jot down some thoughts and (considering my ever-increasing interest in scripts) managed for the first time to find some beauty in the shittiness of my handwriting.
Relief Show more
scratch that. I found it. I was poking around behind the radiator with a long paintbrushed, and suddenly noticed the pen on the end corner of my bed. Out of excitement I dropped the paintbrush behind the radiator, which I feel like is a fire hazard, so I got another long paintbrush to fish it out and ended up dropping that too. I ended up venturing into the Warm Dust Zone with my bare hand, but all is well now.
Annoyance Show more
ERGH. I think i've lost/misplaced my bamboo pen. It should be in my room but i have no idea where it is. Luckily i think my friend isn't using his at the moment, so I won't have to get a new one (replacements are kinda pricey)
Maybe i'll do some art with my trackpad for a while
