On last year’s Inktober, I made this (titled “Connect”.)
That drawing is not super perfect (according to me,) but I really fond of the drawing as I made it while I remembered my friends as we were unable to meet due to the pandemic. I felt like the little mouse or the frog, we stay connected despite the distance.
I just digitally colored it using Adobe Fresco.
Still not super perfect, but I’m glad I did it. I miss my friends.
WordPress has State of the Word 2021 event a couple of days ago on December 14 (my birthday too!) and you can watch the recording here:
For WordPress veterans, you all might have been hearing the buzz about Full Site Editing. For those of you who just noticed the news about Full Site Editing right now, I promise I will blog about it later (😅) I actually have been wanting to write about it with hope that I can help a bit on sharing more information about templates and how you can max up templates using FSE. I personally hyped about FSE and I have been spending quite some time tinkering and doing some testing on my test sites.
Anyway! I actually thought Matt will have a live streaming from the Antarctica. We heard about him taking a trip to the Antarctica and I feel it would look super cool to see him delivering SOTW speech with penguins around, you know. And I really like penguins.
“Hello, hello! Welcome–”
(PENGUIN INTERRUPTING NOISES)
(MORE PENGWEN NOISES. “HUMAN HAS CAMERA. WADDLE TO WAVE AND SAY HI. HELLO HUMAN.“)
I got quite surprised I see him appearing in SOTW podium in New York.
Lowkey expecting to see some emperor penguins shuffling closer to him and as he delivers his speech we see the penguins starting to center on the camera.
You know what they say about penguins:
WE PENGUINS WILL TAKE OVER THE WORLD WIDE WEB.
(Definitely historically incorrect but we never know because The Antarctica is filled with scientists and I won’t be surprised to see some penguins waddling away with some papers on their beak.)
It started with a light tap tap tap on your window on a particularly hazy dusk.
Tap tap tap.
Tap tap tap.
Just enough to annoy you and tickle your curiosity, even though you are fully aware that you’re on the thirtieth floor and it is impossible for anyone to do it since you are sure that there are no ledges outside and there’s no way that a window cleaner would work at this hour.
Tap tap tap.
You drew the curtains and saw it.
It smiled slightly, waved its scrawny hand, and said hi.
From then on, whenever the day ended hazy and everything is all orange and gray, you hear that light tap tap tap on your windows.
