I think I am done.

This one wrapped up much faster than the last. The chance of me improving upon it is about the same as making it worse, so I decided to move on. I'll probably do some subtle lighting tweaks, but that's it.

I'm pretty sure that my nail is regrowing underneath the skin of my amputated finger tip. I'm trying to get an appointment with a hand surgeon, but time is of the essence. I'll be happy if I have some nail there, even if it is just 1/3 of what it was.

I started learning Swift. I am going to build an iOS app that I have been planning for a long time. I was originally going to use a Django framework, but went with Postgres/Arc/Swift instead. :) I'd decided to just learn one new thing at a time, and swapping out one API service for another can always be done. Getting SQL data to appear in my Swift app via Arc felt magical.

This is the last Pubski of 2020.

It’s beautiful.

I think I need to make a final 2020 Etsy shop update. All good news, but mostly lots of sharing pictures of finished product. I’ve been having a lot of fun with the little sticker drawings lately, they’ve been pretty successful.

This is my original Kermit sticker drawing from 2 years back or close enough. Fun, right?

The reboot, today.

I’m feeling pretty proud of the drawings I’ve knocked out recently. My tattoo artist shot me a compliment on Insta, I can bask in that for a while too.


126 sales year to date on Etsy as of today. :)

Just gonna keep on trying incremental improvements as I see and can convince myself to work on them.

I appreciate the idea of learning one new thing at a time. I’ll start with hosting a zoom meeting on Friday. (Yes, I’ve been resisting even the most basic functionality.)

Do you have a list of future learnings or do you just see what comes up?

Not a formal list. I fail at those. But, yes, a list is there in some sense.

I love the painting. There is something anthropomorphic about those trees.

Good luck Re the fingernail. You know you’re living in crazy times when a fella can’t get a consult to save his own nail.

Happy new year!
