Pak Dadang, 60th, penjual tisu
"Ga ada mimpi""Kenapa?"Ga ada mimpi-mimpian. Yang penting kita usaha""Usaha untuk mencapai apa Pak?""Anak""Usaha apa yang sudah Bapak lakukan untuk anak Bapak?""Ya tentu bayar sekolah, buat yang SD.""Apa yang sudah Bapak lakukan hari ini agar bisa bayar sekolah untuk anak Bapak?""Jualan tisu. Seharinya 120 tisu"

How many times have I walked past or stood next to this man? Only now did I learn his name, through a blog by another faceless stranger. It’s an odd feeling. How many times have I drawn or written about people to whom I’ve never spoken before?

"What does it cost to go to Indonesia"

2014.

My friends and I are doing this collaborative site called In A Peek where we make original infographics on Indonesia. Some of them will be pretty serious (like an upcoming one on the economy), while some others will be kind of silly.

It’s been such a fun change to be able to sit down and brainstorm ideas and share the design process with super smart and chill people. The above infographic was a collaboration with the talented Mr. Rizalul.

Follow our official Twitter for updates and actual human interaction (we can’t afford robots or assistants to run our twitter account).

We publish weekly!

This is me if I were a walnut.
What’s this for, you ask? Are you nuts? Everybody has to wait! #march20th

Guys it’s that time again! Get free shipping¬†and$5 off stuff* in my Society6 store if you order through this link. But alas, all good things must end as this offer only applies if you order by March 9th.

Second Announcement!

If you live in Indonesia, you can get t-shirts and other products with my drawings on them through here. The payment method is much simpler for those without paypal or credit cards¬†plus you don’t have to wait as long because domestic post is much quicker.

I want you out of my life… (2014)
Pen and digital colouring.
I mean, love and hate are like two sides of a coin—more specifically, pennies; because feelings are virtually worthless and only serve as obstacles in life.
No, but seriously, spend more days with people you at least sort of tolerate. Happy Anna Howard Shaw day, folks!
