I’ve only just realised that I forgot to do a proper when I first joined this instance, so here goes!
I’m Tom! I am originally from Japan, and come from a visual arts and performance background. I’m currently teaching as a high school teacher in Aotearoa, NZ.

Lately I have found a lot of inspiration from people involved in communities such as this one, and have been working on small web projects in my spare time. Thank you for having me!

I will try get a photo at some point of them using it in class!

Something cool from the week - seeing students from my class using Dotgrid by @neauoire and @rek to design logos for their posters over Illustrator ^^

First time I'm doing an exhibition!

@dualhammers you are often asking people questions about their posts and projects, which draws out conversation and gets other people involved in the discussion too. Have you thought about doing some interviews? There are so many people here I don’t know much about.

Made some minor updates to the styling on my website & added a glossary for mycological terminology. There are only a handful of entries for now but I'm looking forward to adding more over the coming weeks.

Thanks to @cblgh for some great styling feedback which helped to improve readability. I think the card-style border was inspired by @FredBednarski - whose new website aesthetic I find amazing.

Beginner's guide to mycomaterials coming soon ^_^

Trying to write code on a MacBook Pro when your primary computer is a linux desktop is like trying to play a concerto on half a shoe

Archive the websites you love, for they will disappear.

I created a micro-fansite for my favorite Vespa: phse.net/vespa/

It was fun to experiment with CSS grid in a more creative way than usual.
