• I wonder if I’ve read a book, should I be proselytizing it to new readers, or just enjoy the experience? Books are even more personal than movies or streaming series, and I found telling others I loved one of those very hit or miss, and vice versa (e.g. I don’t like Ted Lasso).

  • One would expect that having done several long runs recently would give me good results, but alas, that’s not how it works. Was nice sunny weather and I wore a t-shirt and shorts, despite it being 11 ℃.

  • And done! Gameboy pixel art 📺 160x144 🎨 4 colors.

    For r/SketchDaily, theme: “Merry mongoose makes moaning mallard mailbox.”

  • Lemming launcher? 📺 160x144 🎨 6 colors.

    For r/SketchDaily, theme: “Loathsome lemur laughs, loads lemming launcher.”

  • Sun bather 🐈

  • Koala knight and pirate kakapo. 📺 160x144px 🎨 18 colors.

    For r/SketchDaily, theme: “Knightly koala kicks knavish kakapo kid.”

  • After a rest day I had problems keeping my pace steady. I suppose the gusts of wind had something to do with it. Bad days are clearly part of 🏃

  • ASCII art for May 5, 2021

    I tried this iOS app called ASCII Art, made by a high-schooler. It works surprisingly well for a free app. I cropped and resized a photo I made last week to 109x164px (width x height) and the resulting text was 109 x 85 characters.

    As expected, this doesn’t display very well on my blog. The 109 characters wide is much too wide to fit onto a phone screen in portrait orientation (40 characters seems the limit). I could resize the photo, but I’m afraid the details would get lost. I suppose the only way to create good ASCII art is to do it by hand, one painstaking character at a time.

                                                                      ``,,''`

  • Here’s my current podcast list, in alphabetical order of title. I used Overcast, Apple Notes, and Procreate to make the image.

  • I’m already seeing vaccinated people not wearing masks (e.g. in shops). Kids can’t be vaccinated, yet are roughly 20% of the population. Herd immunity requires 70 - 90% of the population to be vaccinated. Effectively ALL adults need to be vaccinated before measures can be lifted.

  • Jackal joyriding. Pixel art. 📺 160x144px, 🎨 18 colors.

    For r/SketchDaily, theme: “Jittery jackal jeopardizes journey jumpstarting joyride.”

  • It isn’t fast, though faster than what I’ve done recently. I guess one good run isn’t enough, but I feel progression. 🏃 The goal is 15 km per day, but that’s still far-off into the future.

  • Crazy Conspiracy Concept. Pixel art 📺 160x144px 🎨 19 colors.

    For r/SketchDaily, theme: “Injured iguana inconveniently illustrates ideal illuminati infiltration.”

  • Ancient Greece themed harpies 🦅🧚‍♀️ and hamsters 🐹 Pixel art, Gameboy compatible (📺160x144px 🎨4 colors).

    For r/SketchDaily, theme: “Hallucinating harpies haunt horrified hamsters.”

  • Sunday run day 🏃 was so true, so I had to pick a more boring route than usual to avoid other runners. I mostly ran alongside a highway, on a separate road, as is customary here in the Netherlands, where traffic is separated to improve safety and efficiency.

  • Today’s theme on the Sketch Daily subreddit and the reference photos I’ll be using on a 160x144px canvas, 4 color palette, compatible with Nintendo Gameboy. It’s a lot. 🎨

  • Recycling goblin. Pixel art, 🎨 Sweetie-16, 160x144px, 13 colors.

    For r/SketchDaily, theme: “Green Goblin gentrifies grumpy geese, gratifying glistening goldfish.”

  • Rich Uncle Pennybags. Pixel art 🎨 Sweetie-16, 160x144px, 7 colors.

    For r/SketchDaily, theme: “The guy from Monopoly.”

  • I was fed up with cheaters in the Sketch a Day app, so I’ll break my 65-day streak tomorrow.

  • 9 km 🏃 in an hour, sorta. I met this man who, judging from how frequent we meet, seems to walk daily in his walking frame for at least 7 km, despite his disability. I salute him here for effort!

  • Chapter 3 of On Writing Well deals with clutter in one’s text. I’m more of a discovery-writer, with a lot of clutter in the first draft. Right now, I’m writing (in Dutch) for my fortnightly running blog, and want to try out bracketing superfluous text as a tactic to write better.

  • Too cute for words 🥰 🐈

  • I suppose now I’m writing every day (several times a day, really), reading the book On Writing Well by William Zinsser seems appropriate. 📚 ISBN-10: 0-06-000664-1
