Ingrina Shieh  Filtered explorations. I mostly have no idea what I'm doing.

Hubs brought home the newest member of the famalam, Cyril the Sloth. He says a very slow "HEEEEELLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOO." #jellycat #nevertooold

πŸ’” for all those who lost their lives, are fighting for their lives, and who will be forever changed by today. But I remember how beautiful London, Londoners, and London's visitors are, so let's hold on to hope and love, not hate. (More a reminder to myself)

Haven't done food pics for a bit, but this combo is too adorable to resist a little snap. 😁 @bao_london
Where did you get these tea sets?!

Bah, hill. Making the most of it with a view. #running #crouchhill #londonlove

Another challenge for myself: finding type in everyday objects. A silly little project to make myself look at the world a bit differently, perhaps more playfully or creatively. Documenting the fun at @thingstypographed. Here are the first three! πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Probably the last thing I need when running mileage has decreased (hi, hip problems), but baking is therapeutic and cookies are nice for the soul. #πŸͺ

This week. 😡😡😡

Best quotes: "There is a special place in hell for women who don't support other women." And "A woman's place is in the kitchen as much as it is in Parliament." πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯ Lovely (but slightly stressful) two-fold International Women's Day events with Fadumo Dayib, and Nemata Majeks-Walker! Such fun, inspiring women leaders shaking up politics in Somalia and Sierra Leone.

Hey, here is a Sunday long post! This is a sort of progress collage of my pencil work (barring bottom left, which has been inked over). In June, I was trying to find an outlet to supplement exercise/running therapy. I brought home some forgotten colour pencils to see if sketching or drawing might help. That purple circle was an attempt at sketching a coaster that looked similar to the one to its right. It was too hard; I gave up quickly. So I tried handlettering+calligraphy and when I realised letters and calligraphy were all about strokes, angles, and shapes, I got curious and ventured into sketching again. And again, and again. I am aware I'm still very much an amateur (and still afraid of colour), but yikessss, practise and determination are magic! I'm not looking to be an illustrator or an artist, but i am excited to keep improving. I started this to build foundations for a career shift (still researching), and I've discovered how wonderful it is to create something with your hands and the amazing capacity of the human brain to learn and adapt. Thanks for putting up with all my silly posts, including this one. πŸ˜„ (ugh, I need to stop using parentheses.)
