On the night of January 28, 2011, I received a heartfelt email from this unknown. Her name is Rassi Narika. She wrote: “... I was reading an article of you about how you love details, and how you have grown to deal with stencil sets, vintage, and again details. You revived what I thought I should do in life, and this time I promise myself I'm taking the action to make it.

Eastern Reflection

Eastern Reflection

October 14, 2010
I have always been fascinated by the splendor of Islamic architecture and the exotic world of the Middle East. It makes me wonder about the glorious costumes of their Sheiks, the morning fragrance of their street markets, their seductive acoustic melody, and their vivid gem like colors that populate all their fabrics. I indulged myself in illustrating these decorative ornaments, by taking inspirations from the different regions. [...]

The cake is usually the center of the show, but the goody bags and party souvenirs become the sweet icing to these events. To make it easy for the mums and fun for the kids, we have created some ideas for goody bags using the Tulisan gift tags. [...]

Kakatua Raja

Kakatua Raja

August 18, 2010
For every new sketch, I love to work with an imaginary character that would help me in setting the overall tone through the entire collection of that specific print edition. For last July 2010, I created a special story about ‘Kakatua Raja’ - an exotic empress inhabiting an enchanted tropical forest, her very own magical universe. She is a symbol of strength, resilience, and purity against all odds. Her unique and solitary life becomes a solace to all wound. The process is really about handmade labor of love. [...]
