 We live in a millennium era of most communication formats are connected digitally. People no longer tell  other people about what they're doing directly but by sharing through social media. They express everything, from private life, hobbies, pet, meme to daily work to the world. Some of them lucky enough to gain followers/fans and make a living out of it. The illustrations above are some of the examples of what is happening when something goes viral in the internet.

Miracle Box

Once, I was asked by someone about how, where or when I can get some ideas for my work. I could not reply it directly but only smile since I think it was a funny and somewhat ridiculous question to begin with. Why? because it is the same with asking why people do what they like to do. 

My work is something I like to do and not only 'work'. It is like a challenge to interpret people's minds if it is related to customers and walking in my own dream land if it is for me. Drawing does this justification of making it a real thing out of my own perception towards what I feel when I do it. I guess that is the part which other people might not see it in the same way. In addition, drawing is more than just stretch out and pull some lines in a blank paper or in computer to make a beautiful picture to see, but your mind and soul drawn at the same time you do it. It will reach out to people in the same vibe as your mood when you make it. That is why this kind of work is not 'work only' but more like sharing your thoughts and feeling for others. For me, I just let my hand leads the way when I draw something without thinking too much about mistakes I probably make in the process and result. I literary not thinking at all when I do it. It takes guts, persistence, passion and years of learning but it is worth it. Practically the best remedy I can get whenever thinking is becoming too much and turn it all up to focus on just one thing. 

What matters the most above all is the miracle box. A box where you can find bunch of cool imaginary things to put in your creation called ideas. You can never tell when or where or how on earth this box 'poof' suddenly appears out of nowhere, because it is depend on your own effort. You can only do it by finding something that can trigger its existence. Perhaps this is the answer for the question I've mentioned above. Miracle box a.k.a ideas, is there in every person although it certainly not in the same shape or form. Let's say, one day it will be gold and another day is only a priceless rock. However, if you keep honing the skill, one day it will turn out to be diamonds and who knows, it'll make you rich. In term of : as long as you like and enjoy what you do (not limited to drawing actually), whatever that is. Just for note though, miracle box sometimes is not there when you need one, especially in stressful environment, lost concentration and deadly deadline with ugly mood. The best way would be the great skill of surviving and struggling in those situations by mastering the mind to be intact. 

Perhaps, this is just a nonsensical thought of mine, being imaginatively explain something out of proportion, but truly, this is my thought's honest truth related to what I do. 

*Mood: Out of the blue want to write something after quite some times.     
* Pic: my wannabe 3D-like wood box  with bunch of sparkling lights back then several years ago.

Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s



A couple of months ago I was into watching old classical movies from the 40s, 50s and 60s with distinctive beautiful actresses whom one of them is Audrey Hepburn.

At first, I did a lot of reading through Wikipedia for her biography and movie references.  Breakfast at Tiffany’s was one of her biggest and iconic role throughout her career and landed an Oscar award in her hand. 

However, the trivia as well as controversy about this movie was one thing, the writer whom his book the movie was based on, wanted Marilyn Monroe (who eventually declined out of fear for bad reputation due to the role background) to portray the main character and hated Audrey for taking the role. Anyway, I will not discuss this any further nor the story of the movie but only the costumes worn by Audrey in the 60s styles dress and coat, also the other woman in the story who got a very interesting coats.

Most of the times she wore this iconic black sleeveless dress with variation of either long hand gloves, signature big shades/eye glasses, white scarf or several types of hat. Other than that she mostly use gentle color coats, dress, shirt and sleek long pants and jeans. I also noticed the other woman in the story wore several nice blazer and coats matched with elegant turban or other hats. Somehow I like the color tones in all wardrobes of this movie, it was so oldie but Goldie. 
I screen-captured from the movie for the clothes for referring to what I’ve written above while singing the famous "Moon river" song.

Legend of The Blue Sea – Second Love – Sleepless in Seattle: Autum/Winter Coats

For some times, I’ve been watching new hyped Korean drama ‘Legend of the Blue Sea’ (LoTBS) and re-watching 2015 Japanese Drama ‘second Love’(SL) and 1993 Romantic movie ‘Sleepless in Seattle’(SiS) in a row. All three of them offered different kind of themes in the story lines, from mystical mermaid (LoTBS) to hot love story between teacher and dancer (SL) and also romantic soulmates from 2 different cities (SiS). Despite various cultural backgrounds which influenced each of them, I still feel entertained and couldn’t help but notice one similar thing: cold weather+season and coats. Actually I’m not going to discuss about the story but only the thing related to fashion.

Firstly, in LoTBS, Jun Ji hyun/Gianna Jun who plays mermaid Sae Hwa /Sim Chung, wore a lot of exclusive-designer-branded coats and blazer in bright, colorful and elegant up to date fashion socialite styles. Korean drama has this vibe of romance mixed in great backdrops and colorful tones, as if it want to shows how beautiful the world and life is no matter how hard it is. It always stores a Cinderella and fairy tale's spell, where life will magically fixed itself for good people.

As for SL, Japanese styles of to-the-point, sometimes-lack-of-emotions, complicated and the-will-to-always-achieve-better-in-life are always present in the story as any other Jdrama I’ve watched before no matter what the genre was. The coats that worn by Kyoko Fukada as Yui Nishihara, a high school teacher, mostly came in gentle colors as cream, medium grey and pink with simpler regular styles. All of them matched with the bags and scarfs.

The last one, SiS, is a usual American optimistic happy ending romantic movie with iconic actress Meg Ryan as Annie Reed, a journalist who fell in love to an unknown widower in another city. She wore fashionable 80s coats with bigger size looks and soft colors. It somehow relatable with current fashion styles.    

In brief, the stories were quite nice (although for LotBS is still ongoing process) with some moral values and entertainment but the styles are more interesting for me to keep in mind and also references for making my next personal collections of coats.
The photos are not mine but belong to the respective owners of each drama/movie.

Candle and Hoe of Shattered Hopes

I suddenly have this urge to draw and write about another horrible cases that happened a few months ago and became one of the biggest concern for the government and overall, whole country.

Candle for Yuyun.
It was the darkest violent night for Yuyun, as she crossed an empty street in woods somewhere in Sumatra. This teenage girl was murdered after being assaulted and sexually abused by some drunkards.

An innocent 14 years old girl who was on her way back home from pretty far school's distance but caught by misfortune until all of her dreams faded away as she lost her life. It sparked a lot of protests from people by lighting candles on her behalf. The 14 assailants  were caught and being put in jail before facing the trial and waiting for their sentences.

A girl and a hoe.
This was much more inhuman than Yuyun's case. A young worker girl had been tortured to death using a hoe after being raped by three men who had grudge against her in love affair and words. The shocking thing was one of the suspect is really young and still study at junior high school. The case has been on trial process to determine the punishment. In the end, her dream to support her family by working was not last too long due to the crime.

These kind of case keep on happening lately and some people just lost their humanity and succumbed to their evil sides. They did the unthinkable deed to other people as if they are not human with brain and heart. Dark, gloomy and worst than animal. Another lesson learned for us who still have a sense and feeling to avoid it.

The drawing merely a doodle of my thought on the victims. May they rest in peace.
