It’s a project about a boy who play with his paperboat, the author request is to make character of a boy with Philippines background, although Philippines it’s still in the Southeast Asia, I still have to search the local content of Philippines house and style, along with their traditional dress and style. Cross finger hope I delivered a good piece of drawing :).
Dream Shoes Dahlan is chosen as one of many beautiful illustration in The Book Illustration Gallery.
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!
Thanks to God.. 🙂

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.
