October Favourites 🎃
Oct 30, 2022
I see many aesthetic videos of weekly favs from creators on Instagram. Until I have a cooler-looking desk, a room that follows a color pattern, and maybe a tiny remote-control roomba for my desk, I would rather write about it :)
Here are some of my personal favorites this month (anything and everything that sparked joy)
Figma's latest updates
Video in prototyping
Music for brainstorming in FigJam
Quick Voting in FigJam
Ability to create sections for better organization
iOS and Android mobile updates
Answering comments from mobile

I don’t play Valorant but this animation caught my attention. Quite literally in fact. This song made it to my motivation playlist on Spotify in an alternate tab in milliseconds.
Another excellent example speaking to the impact of animation and storytelling ❤️
Hey, it’s me
Taylor does it again. Anti-hero tops the charts this month.
How can someone create such fabulous things again and again? What could the motivations for great artists be? Is it money, is it fame? Maybe they are making gifts for people.
This brings me to my favorite comic of the month.
I was recently gifted an awesome Zen Pencils comic collection. This book had numerous great quotes represented by beautifully done comics.
If the world was ending and I had to pick one comic from this collection to take with me on Noah’s Submarine, It would be “Make gifts for people”.
The comic is a representation of John Green’s words
Every single day I get emails from aspiring writers asking my advice about how to become a writer. And here is the only advice I can give:
Don’t make stuff because you want to make money. It will never make you enough money.
Don’t make stuff because you want to be famous. You’ll never be famous enough.
Make gifts for people.
And work hard on making those gifts in the hope that those people will notice. Maybe they will notice how hard you worked. And maybe they won’t. And if they don’t notice…I know it’s frustrating. But ultimately, that doesn’t change anything because your responsibility is not to the people you’re making the gift for. But to the gift itself.
This is your cue to start making gifts too.
It is surprising when you have a favorite learning platform. Usually, I follow YouTube tutorials and learn by watching because it’s quick and easy (Once you find the right videos of course).
Alternatively; the library of good content, Well-thought materials, and the Consistency and strong presence of Domestika branding across courses are all powerfully appealing on this platform.
Whenever I wish to learn a new skill, I immediately find myself browsing through Domestika.
The key is always in the details ain’t it? 👀
That’s a wrap this month. See y’all soon.
Happy Halloween 🎃
