I think I echo the entire human race when I say that there was something in the air this year that made the days go by faster. What other explanation could there be for the fact that it’s December again? Why does the end of the year have to be once a year? Maybe we... More »

If you’re anything like me, then you’re probably wondering to yourself, How is it December already? It really does feel like this year flew past in the blink of an eye, and I’m already up to my eyes in holiday cards that have yet to be sent out. So if you’ve been procrastinating on that... More »

Omg is it that time of year already? [Year in Review, Part 1]
by | December 13, 2014 | 230 Comments
How on earth has another year zoomed by already? It felt as though I’d only just recovered from banging my head against my keyboard over last year’s year-end reviews when I had to start banging my head against my keyboard for this year’s batch.

Kolorful Palette: Lead-up to love sickness [You From Another Star]
by | March 2, 2014 | 47 Comments
Sometimes the moment that leads up to a “big moment” is the one that resonates. I was tempted to draw the actual kiss for the sake of fan service [from Episode 19 of You From Another Star], but Song-yi’s confession felt more powerful and significant. This moment feels like a landmark for Song-yi’s growth as... More »
