To The Ends of The World

This was one of my entries to International English Service’s Art Auction last year. The original artwork would be hanging on someone’s wall (hopefully). Actually posting it is an act of procrastination – instead of getting my paper and pencils and whatnot out of the box, why don’t I just dig up old artworks (which, is, scarce by the way) and show them off.

2015 has been an unproductive one – in terms of art – mainly because I’m…too lazy. The more elaborate explanation will be that I’ve been having difficulties dividing my time between my 9 to 5 job, books (including  co-organizing book club), practicing illustration (and getting sidetracked by brush lettering along the way), cooking, housekeeping, finding inspirations for furnishing my apartment (while the actual act of furnishing itself is having a lil hiccup) and daydreaming. And of all I’ve been focusing pretty much on reading books and daydreaming, both – if you notice – are acts of escaping reality. It’s not that reading is bad – in fact I encourage you to take time to read everyday – it’s just that a little discipline will be good here, don’t you think? While multitasking is clearly just a myth, the plan is to introduce consistency into my daily activities. well, hope I am consistent enough to carry it out.

| IES Kelapa Gading Mission Tee / 2 0 1 4 Something from about a year ago. Designed for Outreach Ministry of International English Service Jakarta As far as I remember, most of the time their commissions have reached me during my busiest periods. That way - too bad - the works have always felt like one thing too many on my plate; one more thing that I had to wedge into my crammed tiny brain. Of course I've always wanted to work cheerfully and wholeheartedly. That's the essence of doing ministry. But the fact is, I could never give them the best allocation of time - let alone my whole heart.The works I've done so far were like crafted just enough to meet the deadlines; to ease me from my 'debt'; Left me with a 'It could have been better crafted' feeling.

But if they had been such a burden then why did I keep doing it? Because as far as I remember, they have also been such a blessing. Those commissions have challenged me to accomplish something otherwise I wouldn't have. They insisted I use the little free time I had doing illustrations, letterings or designs instead of catching up with my favorite TV series. Thus they've sharpened me as an illustrator/designer. And I'm grateful.

 

taking a breather between deadlines and fighting flu. while waiting for another job briefing scheduled at noon, i bought some silly women magazine full of ads, reorganizing my portable drive and found yet another drawing.

got no time nor energy nor inspiration to do sketches lately *woot woot*

 

 

 

found this last year’s project when rummaging through old hard disk, illustrations for Caring Colours new make up series, Caring Happy. Caring Colours is a local make up brand from Martha Tilaar Group, which targeted young professionals. it was a fun but challenging process, especially because it requires an illustration style that i haven’t really mastered. but i’m really glad that pattie, the creative director who commissioned me to do this project, trusted me to do it ^^
