Not a big fan of the self-absorption of our time, one can restrain one’s desire to share selfies at all hours, or actually all weeks, months or seasons (except perhaps every other year), but found oneself utterly unable to curb one’s impulse to publish this piece of vector graphics, indeed based on a rare selfie. For the mere fun of it, of course.

Some, however, are never happy with the outcome, so added slightly improved version (chances are you won’t even see what it is) to this gallery.

There’s no denying that I’m tempted to continue regarding North Korea ruler Kim Jong-un with the amusement with which I have viewed him up until recently, but owe it to myself to remind me that even Adolf Hitler, despite his evil nature, was considered quite the clown.

As is Donald J. Trump.

As is Kim Jong-un.

Now that cannot be good.

Well, it is Easter, isn’t it?

Also sorry for breaking stride over the past couple of weeks. Suppose I’ll have to realise it just wasn’t to be.

The Pantone colours presented thus far have all been marked «U», for uncoated paper, implying that what the graphic artist sees on his or her paper colour swatch is what the colour is actually going to look like in print.

Thing is, however, that my Pantone colour swatch (below) is printed on coated paper, and colours are, therefore, marked «C», so actually only have an on-screen representation of what an uncoated version of Pantone 430 will look like in print.

You may think these things really do not matter, but believe you me, they actually do.

Then again, who in their right mind prints anything these days anyway.

Finding the perfect beige.
