What I Did for Love
Flash and Photoshop.
Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I thought today might be a good day to celebrate love: love for your significant other, love for your family, love for the people around you, love for your craft, love for nature, love for your life, love for the one place in the world that makes you feel like you’re home.
At first I wanted to draw this in support of marriage equality (woot Pennsylvania!) and in solidarity for the LGBTQ community, but come to think of it, society still holds prejudice against all kinds of ridiculous things like inter-racial and inter-faith relationships which I think should also end. So here’s to all the different kinds of love!
The lyrics are taken from the song What I Did for Love from the musical A Chorus Line, written by the forever loved Marvin Hamlisch.
"I got the Peacekeeper Award in class."
"How did you get that?"
"Well first I had to be chosen as the Peacekeeper. Then, if two people are having an argument, me and my other friend go up to them and try to fix the problem. Then if we can’t fix the problem, we go and tell Ms. Jamie."
I love that this is a thi—wait, not the Panem sort of Peacekeeper, right?
I’m sorry guys but this is such terrible artwork. Like, even I wouldn’t put it on my fridge.
Pak Dadang, 60th, penjual tisu
"Ga ada mimpi"
"Ga ada mimpi-mimpian. Yang penting kita usaha"
"Usaha untuk mencapai apa Pak?"
"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"
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.

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