Being a Shortlist Illustrator in Singtel Asian Picture Book Award 2013

Thanks to God.. šŸ™‚Ā 
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 butĀ honoredĀ yes.. :).Ā 

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 MehĀ *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 cakeĀ 
is the genuine icon of Eid Al-Fitr tradition or Chinese New Year celebration. After sharingĀ 
the excitement of experiencing each celebration, both end up discovering what is moreĀ 
essential; that a dish is able to bridge diversity.
