Here’s my sketches for 0.3.1! In general, looking back, I feel like a lot of what I did here was continue the new thinking that was started in 0.3.0, but was constrained with the design system baggage of earlier versions, and I feel that a good few of these just don’t reach their potential as […]
Hey, I’m semi-back from my break and other things I need to do in my life, giving you a plan of what I’d like to do with the project over the next few months. Hopefully it will go to plan this time! ^^’
This has been such a long release in the making, and it’s finally here!
Patreon has started unveiling their plans for what basically every VC-funded commerce/financial support platform does once their investors start demanding more – make a pointless, multi-tier funhouse version of their platform.

(This is a mirror of the Patreon post of the same name because I realised that relying on Patreon is a bad idea but I didn’t wanna delete that post either) Hey, I’m starting to get into emoji making some more again, it’s still really hard and exhausting after my burnout in November, but I […]
This is a backburner thought, but I’ve contemplated shaping Mutant Standard’s encoding standard over the long term to somehow prevent easy use (and thus cooption) by corporate entities.
Continuing with my tradition of making blog posts about why certain emoji that are in the Unicode Standard are not and will never be in Mutant Standard, I have decided to talk about the very first few emoji I decided to exclude – police and border patrol. With police, I’m mainly bullet pointing this because […]
