The Boy who can not tie his shoes

Hi! long time no see, been busy with all the stuff, drawing, projects, house cleaning..
Pfft, and really I've got to start writing again, been drowning in all the social media application, and realize that I just got to write and take notes in what I've been doing in this blog again! Wish me luck then!

Been working on this project and I really looove the story, it's very simple, basic things of a daily routines in a child life, but it instantly caught my attention, it's like the first time I read the stories, and all the gesture, the mimic, everything comes up and dancing on my head, well what I mean; in my mind.

After searching for some style, I comes up with many reference, in the internet you can find many things and learn many things, just do it like this: 25% browsing 75% working; this is what I always said to my daughter, otherwise if you take 75% browsing with an 'ooh and aah' for seeing all the masterpiece online, you will end up with only 25% working and exhaustion from all the excuse that you make that 'you've been working by browsing', umm  I'm blabbering again, okey back to the topic

This is all my reference, I loove all this illustrator, and hope I could learn from them :) Ekaterina Trukhan, Mary Blair, Shinzi Katoh.

And I end up with my own personal style, I'm trying to capture the crispness of the line, the tidiness of the color and the main thing is, the 'child' inside a child character, frustration, happiness, hope, sadness and so on. Enjoy!

My artwork PoD online shop

It's the day when my friend from Printerous approach me and said,' Hey, do you want to sell your artwork online?" It's like setting up a bunch of local artist , and give them chance to show their work printed on some stuff, Print on Demand stuff. I'm kinda apathetic in the concept of artwork  translated into a printed thing, usually because of the quality in Indonesia, and the form that not suitable to my expectation.

but then, I looked and looked and see the end result, well, amazingly it's suitable to what I've expected, so here it is, my online artwork shop, gotta buy one for myself , I'm really impressed and of course , happy, that finally we have something like this in here, it will help all the local talent and get them enough place to expose their work.

So if you interested in my art, welcome to my shop, take a look around and let me know what you think :)

click! click!

Just click click to see :)

The Paperboat Boy

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 :).

This is a little bit of my drawing process, start from the rough sketches, research for the house style, and the coloring.
