In an extremely digital age, we miss the human touch.

You can tell it by the frequent use of modern fonts that imitate handwriting, calligraphy or hand-lettering. And that’s just one example.

Just look around.

Handmade stopped being just the next trend a long time ago.

It’s here to stay.

A new CSS style for double-underlining hyphenated words

I thought it would be nice if one day we could have a way in CSS to style hyphenated words.

How to give a natural feel to a digital artwork

I love creating digital artworks. Especially such that later serve as album covers. Years ago I would create everything by just using Photoshop and other digital software. However, pure digital collages never gave me 100% pleasure because, even though I’m not a pro at painting, since I was very little I always had great fun drawing, doodling and sketching.
