I saw a similar hat on a cafe table on Friday May 17 2019, and decided to draw a similar one back home.

Too late to learn?

Today during a computer eye break I went to a high school art show hold inside the company. Some of the works are impressive, especially given that they were made by high school students.

I skipped almost all my art and music classes as a kid as I thought they were useless. Experimental results indicated that drawing is not too late to pick up later, even though I wish I could have spent more time on music and physical training earlier in my life.

When people express opinions about what I am doing, I find it very helpful to just focus on the parts that can constructively propel me forward and just ignore the rest which just cause positive or negative emotions.

The topic of today’s Gemini dogfooding session was a cute cartoonish unicorn, but I had a more sinister variation in mind.
