Yay, I learned how to tweak fonts and images!

My favorite hobby is painting. Ever since having children in my life, I seldom paint because it takes space, takes time for setting up, then there’s toxic fume exposure for the kidlets, drying time, privacy, risk of exposuring one’s inner psyche, cleaning time, yada yada yada. Recently, I discovered the skills of digital tweaking of fonts and images. Here are some of my recent works.
