Ingrina Shieh  Newbie to hand lettering, bookworm, runner, city lover, scatter-brained. Realising that I'm addicted to photos of nature.

Aggghhh rushing as February comes to an end. Wanted to try doing an entire skyline rather than plotting buildings on a page. Plus, looking at Boston in the distance from the Charles is always the best way to admire it. But this wasn't as simple as I thought it would be! Two more days to finish the sketch and ink away.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I choose to believe this is her and not a publicist)

Elif Shafak, you extraordinary woman. I would like to be as intelligent, brave, humble, down-to-earth, open-minded, thoughtful, and so many other things as you. ❤❤❤

Impulsive decision to buy some light whiskey for Friday. 😎 What I do resent is staff giving me a funny look at the tasting counter as I tasted samples and asking me if I wanted tonic with it. 🙄 #itakeitneatthankyou

Learning shading techniques (obvs loads to learn) with some sexy swimming strokes. I joined my HS swim team without learning how to do this stroke and had to try it on the fly (ha. HA.) during a training session. Talk about flailing. And failing. Kind friend stayed with me for longer sessions to teach me so I wouldn't be embarrassed. Will always remember the hourglass lady secret. 😉 Even though I look like a drowning fish when I do it myself, I love watching others do this stroke, so I thought i might be able to understand it in a different way if i studied it by hand. Another #WIP in this "I have no idea what I'm doing" saga. (And omg, how do I draw WATER?!)

THIS EPISODE WITH ES DEVLIN BLEW AWAY ALL THE LOWER CASE LETTERS IN MY MIND AND LEFT ONLY AWE (AND CAPS). What creativity and imagination. #mindblown #creativity

You know how they say "Not all who wander are lost?" I'm lost! Brain is fried and tangled up. 😵😵😵 #careerchoices

Reading "The Design of Everyday Things" by Donald A Norman and getting gold page after page.

Getting intimate with my ABCs again. It's starting to make more sense - the characteristics of letters, but duuude, does this take time and still leave inconsistencies. (Sorry to keep spamming you with letters)

Building foundations. Learning different fonts by hand. Agh, trying to balance slow and steady learning with panicky I DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME feelings.

Been a while since writing down some boozy thoughts...
