Pinned toot

Hello 👋 I'm Nathaniel or "Nate" (he/him).

I'm a Visual & UI in the . I've always been artistic & a geek so a career was a obvious choice.

When I'm not working I'm 🎮 on PC/console, ✏️, frequenting pop/rock/alt concerts & exploring NorCal with my GF.

Life long enthusiast/hipster (I liked them before they were a juggernaut).

Long time Twitter user increasingly nervous about the direction of that platform.

Been a bit quiet on my social accounts lately and I’m not really sure why.

I’ve got a backlog of photos to process and post also… Guess I’m just being lazy.

Oh I’ve been bad about posting lately. Probably share some pics I took over the weekend soon.

An unfinished quick finger I did on my iPhone a few days ago. It’s no iPad Pro but it’s still a powerful sketchpad that’s always with me.

I kinda love that Instagram targeted ads think I *might* have a cat… While I do like cats they would be wrong about me having one.

Ads seem less creepy when I’m using NordVPN & ad blockers, like it relies heavily on who I follow with less re-targeting from my browsing.

The Tortured Case for Deleting Instagram gizmodo.com/the-tortured-case-

This covers most of my concerns with IG and why I’ve also been slower to delete it than Facebook.

Played the today. I’m fairly underwhelmed actually... Fun flying & ok shooting but not doing much unique. Too many slow loading screens, even a few in a mission… Waiting for reviews.

I find Destiny 2 more interesting and I haven’t even played in months.

My latest Procreate sketch 🤖

Getting better at keeping it loose and rough, saving details for last or for my very best work I want to polish.

Just spent 2 hours deep cleaning my fridge! 🧽 Wasn’t awfully dirty but I’m going to start on the right foot with my new roommate. I’m most dreading cleaning around and under the stove/oven.

Less eventful update: got home and installed the battery, the car now works again! 🎉

I lugged my new battery down the block to a Mediterranean restaurant for dinner before getting another ride home.

Updates on the install to come.

I’ve had a “fun” afternoon. I took a break from work only to find my car didn’t want to start because the 2012 battery is apparently finished. With some guidance from my brother I removed the battery and took a Lyft to the nearest auto-parts store to buy a replacement…
