I was born and raised in New York City, schooled in Los Angeles,
and am now living in Brooklyn. I am the design lead at Tattly. Food always; sleep sometimes. Dance + internet in my spare time.
It’s kind of a thing that I love pandas.
Went to The Cloisters with Kevin today. The A train was out from 168th to 207th, so we walked there from 168th. I wish I had taken photos on the way — we passed by such a beautiful neighborhood. Unreal for a Manhattan area … reminded me of Kalorama Heights in DC, and reminded Kevin of parts of SF.
Since the beginning of this year, my buddy Ken and I have been working on a semi-daily project: ATSDT (stands for “At the Same Damn Time”).
We had talked several times earlier about collaborating on a project, and finally at the end of last year, I suggested to Ken that, starting in 2013, each day we would choose a song (usually of hip-hop or r&b flavors) and illustrate the song title.
I especially love when we both do the same song with very different results (me on the right, Ken on the left):
Admittedly, not every day has both of us participating, but after nearly four months, we’ve created quite a large oeuvre of work at our Tumblr — nearly 150 entries and counting — and I’m really proud of that. It feels nice to have something to make every day, and Ken is an amazingly talented designer and I’m so glad to finally be able to work on something with him.
Not sure what is on the immediate horizon, though we have talked about getting some prints or tees through Society6. Either way, we plan to continuously making these for some time. Check for updates!
I’m not even going to pretend I came up with this recipe. I will say that I actually yelled “Fuck yes!” when I had my first bite of this. Alone, in my apartment, while reading Reddit.
Here’s the original recipe from The Kitchn. I just added some dried-up fresh thyme that the very nice grocer down the street gave me for free when I said “thank you” in Korean. I’ve actually avoided the place because I don’t want to go back without having learned more words. Is that weird? Whatever.
Bonus: panfried chicken drippings GRAVY!!!
Double bonus: I have lots of bones and I will be making chicken stock out of them.
Yeah okay cool. Lunch tomorrow is going to be awesome.
There are two different ways people judge you. Sometimes judging you correctly is the end goal. But there’s a second much more common type of judgement where it isn’t. We tend to regard all judgements of us as the first type. We’d probably be happier if we realized which are and which aren’t.

They’re all hands that guide the stick that draws the line in the sand.
I kickstarted Jack Cheng’s book some time ago, and in the months since, I’ve been getting weekly updates on its progress. They are always so well-written and the fact that I love reading them makes me all the more excited to read These Days when it arrives (which is soon)!
Ikea furniture was delivered today; the movers and my dad’s car full of the leftovers will come tomorrow.
The Lonely Polygamist Brady Udall
An epic-type tale surrounding a husband, his four wives, and 28 children. Takes a while to get really interesting, but then about 4/5th of the way in, crests awesomely and meets a fulfilling end. Thank you Bekka for the rec.
You Are Boring Your Monkey Called
How not to be a total snooze-fest. This article is SO good and it hits me right in the gut. Hat-tip to Kevin.
