| 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.
