Have you ever dreamt about something weird which you can't explain it with any kind of logic? Most of my nights filled with that kind of dream. Last night I became a bird flies on the ocean, chasing the waves. The night before it, I got lost in a never where with zillion stars in the sky and glow-in-the-dark rainbow fountain in front of me. I might dream of colorful garden with singing flowers all around. Everything seems so magical and psychedelic which I love so much.

Hundreds Clothes in One Week
It's been the busiest week of the year for me. Me and team had to do photo shoot for Fairground and House of Wilde's new collection. It's nothing until we found out that we have to shoot 500 pieces of cloth for website catalog. It could be damn tiring, but thank God for an awesome team and fun moments during photo shoot. They definitely eased the weight!
Doodle Not Drugs
Thursday noon at work. This is what we , --Indonesians usually call "Magabut". It means doing nothing at work but still get paid. It doesn't mean I don't have anything to do, I just done my tasks and have to wait until the d-day when I'll get crazy busy at the photo shoot location next week. I was browsing for hours to find fashion trends and stuffs (that's what we usually do if we don't have anything else to do) and I found one photo post from The Coveteur and it says "Doodle Not Drugs". Not so sure why they use cigarettes to represent drugs but it's still a good concept overall, especially for Anti Drugs Campaign.
As all we already know, lots of young people now a days hard to find passion of things and choose to run to negative ways instead, for example into drugs. And I think, all they need to do is distracting themselves from bad habits and getting themselves busy by finding their abilities to do such of great things like building small business, making musics, and/or creating arts. Art is the easiest way to start. Creativity is a gift we got since we were born, that makes each person has potential to be an artist. Some people realized about it and find their ways to develop the gift they got, while others choose different ways. It worked on me. Drawing is a gift I thought I won't ever have, but since I recklessly tried it for the first time, I keep carrying this on and (thank God) I got lots of positive responses from others.
Now move your ass, grab your old crayons and start doodling, because it possibly works on you too. GOOD LUCK!
An astonished masterpiece made and directed by Irina Dakeva @ Wizz. She's graduated from Penninghen Art School and becomes a talented Director ever since. She always combines drawing, illustration, design, and animation into one outstanding art. You can find one of her masterpiece in Breakbot's official music video --"Baby I'm Yours". This sickness is a composition of approx 2000 images watercolor painted one after another. Really lots of work to do, and definitely worth more than appreciation.
Hi, great people! As I told you on my last post, I'm gonna post some pictures of my new place. It's still a mess actually, I can't find time to clean everything up but I love my new place. It's small, but so comfy and homey! Big wide windows and purple wall are my most favorite parts so far.
I took the picture above, right before I painted the right side wall.
Not even a fan of purple, but I'm glad I made a right decision. I love my new wall, it's fashionably lovely!
Oh! Hello, Cous! (My cousin moves in with me. She owns upstair. Looks like she loves it so much. Ha!)
There. My territory. Still waiting for my sofa bed, need to add this and that, clean shits up, and re-arrange stuffs.
Not All Art Is Created Equal
My weekend was awesome! I went to Indonesia's first art battle that was held at Mantra, Seminyak. As quoted, art battle is a live painting event that introduces a novel way for the audience to participate in the conversation between artist and culture. Five local and international artists (Arief Bachtiar, Rik Lee, Stuart Smythe, Stacy Hamer, Natisa Jones, and Inés Katamso) were being given 2 hours to contemplate, concept, and attack their board or canvas in a bid to best represent a common theme announced to them by Mantra's discerning Judging Team.
They were being voted by the audience, and ended up with Ines Katamso winning the battle. It was awesome, the artists were goddamn great, it's really inspiring especially for me. I need to learn and practice harder and more. Probably I could join the battle one day :D :D
I slept over at Dui's 2 days a go. She has this grey big wall on one side of her studio that we can doodle anything we want over there with crayons. She asked me to draw something there and I can tell you that it might not my best drawing but it was really fun! I want to do it again hopefully soon!
Anyways, I just moved to my new place and I love it so much. It's still messy but I'll post some pictures over here, maybe tomorrow. xx
Imperfect Is The Truest Beauty
I love the way people see people nowadays. Especially in Fashion. They become more open to everything, and not afraid to be themselves. Beautiful people have less space in fashion world lately. And somehow flawed ones are more attractive. Their weaknesses turn to be their strength and that what makes them unique.
That inspires me to draw a photo of a man who has lots of freckles all over his face. This guy is not ugly at all, matter fact, he's beautiful.
See the result in Art Exhibitions - People page.
Ebi just made my day, today! She brought DVDs for me to borrow. FYI, They're not some semi porn teen movies nor some friggin romantic -slash- cheesy sad ones, not even about perfect hot agents who fight against some ugliest aliens. These shits are something else! All DVDs are the documentary of all fashion gurus that you worship like gods. Ebi got them while she's still in Paris, which I hope they have at least English subtitle so I don't have to guess what they're talking about because I'm knowing like zero french words.
These movies are like bible for fashion workers. They're inspiring, especially when your brain is lack of ideas. You'll hate some attitudes and adore their genius minds. But what catches my eyes the most is Chanel's DVD case. It looks like a book. And there are some costume design sketches in it. J'adore!
She BANGS, She BANGS!
I used to have bangs since high school and it somehow became my trademark but I decided to grow it 2 years a go. It was okay but then I was too bored with my long messy hair and considered to cut my bangs lately and I finally did it yesterday. I'm at work right now and surprisingly my boss loves my new look. He said that I look different, --better different and somehow look like a pop star, 60's pop star. What funny is how his mood turned to happy all of sudden everytime he meets me and sees my new hair and he commented about it over and over again. And I gladly took that as a compliment hahaha. Bangs (or maybe you call it "Fringe"), I need to get used to this again.
What do you think?
