Blender Tutorial

As a Designer, I am always looking for ways to improve or complement my current skills. Thanks to more powerful devices and browser technology, animation and 3D are ongoing trends. Even before I chose to study Graphic Design, I spent a lot of time in photo and vector software. I can make pretty good icons and flat vector drawings. So, where do I go from here?

I could...

  • Learn to animate my vector drawings
  • Learn JavaScript to create animations and interactive effects
  • Learn 3D to create images and scenes that I cannot draw



Drawing is not one of my skills. I can combine shapes to create icons and illustrations, but I cannot draw with accuracy. That is where 3D comes in. It took about 3 hours, but the donut render is far superior to any drawing I may create. Learning how to animate with JavaScript on the web would be just as useful for 3D art. Some websites that utilize 3D in either video or online are as follows:



My interest lies at the intersection of art + code. Engaging websites often include animation or extremely engaging graphics. So, that's what I'm working on and will hopefully achieve for PSP customers. Wouldn't it be fun if www.japanese-online.com had a bunch of 3D food and locations? I bet the site would look really fun with graphics like these: https://dribbble.com/tags/low-poly

There’s a diner in Arlington, WA that sells giant cinnamon rolls. They are $5.99 and better than any I have baked myself. I get one every time I have the chance!

I saw this license plate on my way home the other day. Cool! It is a reference to Saber from the Japanese anime series, "Fate."

What Japanese Prison Food is Like

thread


In America, hospital food, public school lunches, and prison food is some of the least nutritious and most unappetizing food available. It looks like Japanese prison food is both nutritious and delicious. I am not surprised that Japanese prisoners eat well. America has a lot of poor quality food. I wish America had higher standards.

Japanese Curry

thread
I followed the recipe on the Go... I followed the recipe on the Golden Curry box and the curry tasted delicious.
It has already been close to 10 months since my trip to Tokyo. I bought Java Curry and Golden Curry from the local grocery store because I was feeling nostalgic. Co-workers tell me it is common to mix two brands of curry so that is why I bought two boxes from different brands. In Tokyo, I ate curry every day. My meal reminded me of Japan and only made me wish I was in Japan even more!

Hokkaido Milk Tea

Hokkaido Milk Tea
This weekend I went to the Boiling Point restaurant in Bellevue, WA for bubble tea. On the menu was "Hokkaido Milk Tea" which I think uses milk imported from Hokkaido, Japan. It was tasty!

Tokyo Curry

thread
Soba and curry Soba and curry
I went to Tokyo, Japan in April. My experience is hard to put into words, but I tell people I want to go back so they understand my general impression. When I see photos or videos that feature Tokyo or scenes from Japan, I feel an ache like the loss of a dear friend. My favorite foods from my trip were curry and katsudon. I ate curry every day, I think. Or, at least 5 times. I could not get enough of how fresh and bright the flavor was in combo with the warm and gooey texture. Pure comfort food. My favorite shop was C&C pork katsu curry near Tokyo station! Go! Go! Curry in Akihabara was popular but not my favorite. My favorite Katsudon came from a little shop between Ginza and Asakusa that I walked into at random. I would like to visit Tokyo again soon.

Savory Dutch Baby

thread
Bacon, cheddar cheese, and m... Bacon, cheddar cheese, and mushrooms.
Seattle has a restaurant popular for serving a dish called a "Dutch baby." They are basically egg pancakes and look like a cross between crepes and omelettes. Mine is not as fancy looking as Seattle's Tilikum place. I will have to work on the recipe and bake temperature to get more of a brown crust.

Nonetheless, this dutch baby in my mini cast iron skillet (5-inch skillet) hit the spot this Friday morning. I am particularly fond of the bacon and cheddar flavor combo!

See fancy dutch baby photos from Yelp: Tilikum Place Cafe
