I enjoy drawing daily. I really do. (draft Ello post, unposted)

I enjoy drawing daily. I really do.
At some moments it feels like a burden but each day as I post it, like, it feels good to see that I’ve managed to draw something that I cannot be ashamed of, perhaps sometimes even be proud of. Even though my drawing time never really cuts into my working time, where most of my time is wasted by other procrastination times such as watching YouTube videos and reading articles that have nothing to do with the day-job blog posts that I’m supposed to be doing but these veerings & stumblings on the Internet take up way, way more time in aggregate than any drawing I do, my daily drawings take up almost none of my time. And yet…
Lately I tend to draw two drawings a day then I take a break. I’ve been wanting to draw several drawings in a day so that I can draw something complex over the course of several days; such as “a full musician”, an “evil train”, or a typewriter–darn a typewriter seems more complex for me to draw than it should I’d thought I’d be able to draw a typewriter real quick but it seems no…
I need to produce more blog posts and faster. They’re the ones making real money. The drawings… the drawings are just hobby and they take up no time. What’s really taking up my time is all these social media… but I do research on social media and the Web if I go offline I can’t write because I can’t access data and…

Main #pathdaily manual pakai Photoshop

Buat yang mau template Photoshop #pathdaily versi gue (dalam format .psd, Photoshop versi CS6), silahkan ya kabari ya… gw bisa kirim via Email, WA, Telegram, ataupun FB Messenger…

…Tapi intinya sih spec-nya seperti berikut:

  • Ukuran gambar 960 x 717
  • Point-size-nya variabel, disesuaikan dengan teks, tapi Typeface-nya Helvetica Neue LT Roman, atau Myriad Pro Normal (atau mendekatilah, kelihatannya.)
  • Line-height-nya 100% — alias, ukuran Leading-nya sama persis dengan Point-Size-nya font. (Kalau Photoshop, Leading Default adalah 120%)
  • Warna teks-nya selalu putih, dan kalau dari bawaan asli Path tanpa drop-shadow; jadi idealnya ambil sumber foto yang dominan warna gelap.

…Selain cara manual Photoshop ini, bisa juga mengikuti petunjuk dari blog korporat Path.

The problem with fake it till you make it

The problem with fake it till you make it is that when everybody does it everybody becomes a faker, even those that makes it..

(Except for some parts of the act, which are real; but the rest of it are just an act…)

[This might explain how most everybody in the World in positions of responsibility & public attention, don’t seem to really know what they’re really doing…]
