1. Sketches 2

“life has a funny way of testing you to see if you really want, what you say you want.” 
― Turcois Ominek






















:: trying to make an interpretation of Elsa from Frozen
it's  long time since I sketched a princess or a girl figure, a little bit awkward on the eyes I think :)

3. Morning.. :)

One  morning accompanied by Javanese song, and little Mumu..

Sakehing kang dumadi makardi,
Lir Hyang Widhi kan tansah makarya,
Nguripi jagad tan leren,
Surya, Candra, lan Bayu
Bhumi, tirta kalawan agni,
Peparing panguripan,
Mring pamrih wus mungkur,
Anane nuhoni dharma,
Iku dadya “Sastra cetha” tanpa tulis,
Nulat lakuning alam.







Semua yang ada di ini bekerja,
Bahkan Tuhan pun bekerja,
Menghidupi dunia tanpa henti,
Matahari, bulan, dan angin
Bumi, air tanpa kecuali api,
Memberi kehidupan,

Semua bekerja demi kelangsungan hidup tanpa pamrih,
dasarnya hanyalah merasa wajib,
Alam adalah “Ilmu nyata” tanpa tertulis,
Kita wajib belajar dan meniru dharma baktinya alam

Dandang Gulo- taken from here

4. From Rock to Rock - Children book illustration

The final result for my post about The frog who lost his home  .
Story by Ary Nilandari.

In this project I try to put the effort on the details, about the frog family expression, the mountain of stones that been taken away by the human, and the beauty of the ecosystem in this story. As this story are real life situation , about the rocks mining in Java, a little bit of Javanese culture is put inside the details, like the the "blangkon' that the frog put on their head, the batik for dancing, and gamelan for the music instruments. Enjoy.. :)







Sketches and sketches...








:: Give our rock back!

:: Maybe we can do something...

:: From rock to rock we jump and play, from rock to rock we dance and sing!

6. Nyampah? CIH! :D

Karena geregetan liat orang berdasi, rapi dan klimis buang sampah sembarangan.
Karena geregetan liat si cantik wangi, tanpa rasa bersalah buang sampah sembarangan
Karena geregetan liat ayah dan bunda membiarkan anaknya buang sampah sembarangan

karena melihat peluh pembersih jalanan dan sampah yang melihat para pembuang2 sampah ini tidak sedikitpun berpikir, bila.., kesadaran membuang sampah pada tempatnya, dan kesadaran untuk tidak menyusahkan orang lain, akan sangat- sangat membantu mereka

:: Feel free to share, contact me if you need hi-res image for the campaign

8. Dahlan Shoes Series is out now :)





3 stories about a boy named Dahlan, actually it's the real childhood stories of Bapak Dahlan Iskan, the 
 Indonesia's Minister for State-owned enterprises



It's about his experience as a poor farmer boy, finding his way to get out from his condition, a heart warming stories that remind us to accept life what ever condition we've been given to , but also to be smart and find our own way to break through to find a better life, and respect it.























































Kriuk! Perut Dahlan semakin lapar.   Dia menatap meja makan dengan nanar. Di sana tidak ada sedikit pun hidangan.Sedari pagi Dahlan belum makan.  
                                           
Rumble! Dahlan’s getting hungrier. Dahlan hazily stares at the dining table. There isn’t even a bit of food to ease this hunger.
Since this morning Dahlan hasn’t found anything to gobble.








:: This one is the inside page from the first book, Dream Shoes.

10. Being a Shortlist Illustrator in Singtel Asian Picture Book Award 2013


Thanks to God.. :) 
In May I've got this delighting email from Singapore Book Council, saying that my illustration for 'Cap Go Meh' has been nominated for the Singtel Award, the shortlist was picked from 158 entries sent in from 19 countries. Not win yet but honored yes.. :). 

My friend, Sophie Dewayani the author also shortlisted for the author award. And this is the synopsis from the book, this book has not been published yet, wish us luck that we'll find the perfect publication company.

Cap Go Meh *just click to view more about the inside illustration
Nisa, a Muslim girl, and Lili, a Chinese-Indonesian, debate over where cap go meh rice cake 
is the genuine icon of Eid Al-Fitr tradition or Chinese New Year celebration. After sharing 
the excitement of experiencing each celebration, both end up discovering what is more 
essential; that a dish is able to bridge diversity.

15. Book: Cap Go Meh


Finally done! Been doing this 15 spread books illustration in 2 weeks, errgg I'm so tired and so overwhelmed at the same time! I really love the story line because it really take a lot of courage to lift the topic of different religion and race in Indonesia, I hope this book could give a positive mind set for those who read it, that all religion is good, it is us, as human being, who have to learn a lot more about humanity and tolerance, no matter what race are we, what religion are we...

So.. enjoy.. :)







Cap Go Meh

By Sofie Dewayani and Eugenia Gina


Nisa, a Muslim girl, and Lili, a Chinese-Indonesian, debate over whether lontong Cap Go Meh is the genuine icon of Eid Al-Fitr tradition or Chinese New Year celebration. After sharing the excitement of experiencing each celebration, both end up discovering what is more essential; that a dish is able to bridge diversity. 
Lontong Cap Go Meh represents the Indonesian melting pot. Consisting of rice cake, chicken curry, along with several other side dishes, it characterizes the interwoven of Chinese, Malay, and the local Javanese cultural tapestry.

I use the cat girl to represent the seller because in Indonesian wet market a lot of cats wondering around craving for leftover, so I think it's pretty to put the character inside..
