Seashell has 73 glyphs and is free for personal use. You can use it on your websites and personal projects. I spent a great deal of time on this, drawing each letter and converting the finished alphabet into a font.

Now, I am not a professional font maker and used an online tool to make this font. But anyway, if you would like to give my font a try, download it below:

Beginning Hand Lettering

I always used to be in a muddle when it came to hand lettering.

I had calligraphy pens, but I couldn’t find the ink. I had brush pens, but they were lost. I didn’t know what kind of paper to use and, the biggest problem of all, I didn’t know how to letter in the first place.

So I made a few desperate attempts by browsing all over youtube, looking for sharpie lettering tutorials and trying to use 3 mm pens to somehow miraculously succeed. But everything was a major FAIL.

Then, I remembered some genius (I’m sorry I don’t remember WHICH genius) who had sketched out some lettering using a pencil. I didn’t really realize it then, but the letters had thick lines when the strokes went down and relatively thinner lines when the strokes went up. So I hastily grabbed a piece of paper and tried it out. And that’s what I’ve been following till now.Read More »

A Little Fun

It’s okay to spend a little time
Capering in the heat
It’s okay to have a little sand
Stuck between your feet.
It’s okay to have a little paint
Streaked across your face
It’s okay if at times your walk
Doesn’t proclaim utmost grace.
It’s okay to spend an evening
Lolling in the dirt
A little fun once in a while
Doesn’t really hurt.

First Blog Design

I just did my first blog design for an external blog. It was so much fun! I wanted to do a clean and classic design, and if you want to see it, click this link. And if you’re planning to click it, I’d love to know what you think.

Kasak’s Notebook

I just realised that I ❤ blog designing!
I hope I’ll be doing it again sooner or later. That’ll most probably be later, so I should better get back to NaNoWriMo. There are just 4 days left! *tension attack*

Hullabaloo

For a summer day’s activity
I set a stand for lemonade
In the buzzy, busy heat
Of the crowded esplanade.

But when a nice old woman
Limped over for some
I was much too excited
To know what’d come.

When she approached me
I grinned (a bit too wide)
I toppled across my stand
(It hurt) I grabbed my side.

Then I slipped on on my water
I slid stupidly on the floor
Cleaning up the mess I made
Would be much of a chore.

The irked old woman
Glared and walked away
She squashed my foot as she went
“Ow.” is all I could say.Read More »

The Slumber Bath

I wondered in which way to sleep
For the time umpteenth
It was teeth-chattering outside the covers
And like an oven underneath.

I settled with under the blanket
And buried myself deep
And quite some time later
I was snoring loud in sleep.

And the next bright morning
I was dripping! I was wet!
I was drenched from tip to toe
By a cryptic thing that they call sweat.
