Hello, my name is Mary Jane Kwan.mj kwan I am an ex-architect, ex-expatriate, violin maker in the making. I was born and raised in Austin, Texas, and now live in Boston working on violin repair.

See all things I do (or used to do) here: mj.mkwan.com

What’s this blog all about?

It’s a pile of comics built mainly on my experiences with violin making, music, math, tools, China, and architecture.

Other themes: cultural differences, chickens, food, Golden Gate Bridge, etc.

And some instructional this and that.



  1. Your blog is just fantastic! I’ve learned so much from the Construction Log and your drawings and humour really makes me smile! I bet your violins must be beautiful!
