Fall is coming.


 "..it must be cold outside"
Fall is coming, the leaves are falling
and when in doubt, wear red
all ready to go outside wearing:
Prada red leather coat and leather belt
Hermes orange print scarf
Proenza Schouler furry black bowler hat
She must stand out wearing red at autumn/winter.

Hey hey, how is all?
Just finished this piece that I'm finally loving. Its about fall.
Too bad they don't have the four seasons here in Jakarta, I have yet to experience it.
It would be nice wearing all those furry, leather, woolly coats, etc..

Thank Yous.




Hello to all, how are you?
Apparently I'm still on a long holiday, enjoying it I guess.
I'm quite excited today because this style piece I'm working on is almost finished.
But, I'm not celebrating yet until the final outcome is set. Keeping my fingers crossed :D
Here's some Thank You artworks for today. Made them as greeting cards for the shop
My dear friend Noble Beeyotch just gave me this Blogger Award.
As the saying on my artworks today calls out, "Thank you!"
Her blog is very lovely too.

20s and V covers.


Hello to all :D
Just added these girls to my art shop.
She definitely loves taking inspirations from the 20s, the sexy lace nightgowns, flapper-like, bob hair and low waistlines.
The 20s to 40s are actually my favourite decades of fashion because everything is so elegant and sexy.
"Chic, chic, chic," she says to herself.

I also wanted to share V-magazines cover.
It features models for a special of ‘Victorian meets Butcher and Flowerist’ called the “World of Women and Supreme”.
The great thing about it is that its so creative with great color combinations.

Kids art.



Taught some art classes today, takes quite alot of energy when it comes to small kids.
I swear they are soo mischevious but its fun teaching them anyway.
One kid, Gaby, wanted to paint Remy from Ratatouille surfing.
She didn't like drawing animals very much so I told her to bring her doll Remy to draw.
So there it was. Haha..
Michelle though loves fancy things so she drew jewellery sets.
Some others from the past lessons.

Busy, busy.



Every other day I always make sure to check up my readers blogs.
Lately I've been quite busy to do so because of this style piece i'm illustrating for an e-zine.
I want to post it here but I guess it's not the time yet.
I'll make sure to get back at everyone, I love reading people's stuff.

Love these type of photos.


Hi all, how was ur day?
Finally, I got to go out with some of my uni friends. I've been watching alot of movies lately.
My latest is "The Proposal", Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock really look good together there..
Anyway, I came across these photos that I fell in love with.
It's the "London Rooftop" editorial by Henrik Adamsen for Cyana Trendland.
Love these type of photos with pale and unsaturated colours.
Some art for today:
She's the girl in her blossoming thoughts now owned by Hollie Dawn :D

Summer and dreams.



Hello all, hows everybody?
I just had a bad dream last night. I dreamt I was being chased by someone.
Oh how I hate that feeling, especially when the waking up part. Sure feels very uneasy.
I have yet to find out what I'm running away from ;p Here's a "him" artwork for today.
He's wearing a summer outfit - checkered buttoned top with a brown cotton scarf and dark jeans.
I also managed to make and cut some cards for my shop to distribute around.
This will be the front part. Come around :D

Bunny ears.




She's the watercolour girl dressed up in her Lanvin black turtleneck shirtdress 
and striped Marc Jacobs glove warmers who's ready to surprise. 
She sure knows how to stand out with her bunny-like Louis Vuitton headpiece.
Owhh, I want one! Even my watercolour girls can wear them =/
Oh, you must see Harper's Bazaar's "The New Shapes":
They are strong, sexy and playfully fierce.
Love this one!
Ps. Happy Independence day Indonesia :D

Enjoy the summer! :D

Fashion books.


My bro just got me this book from S'pore. Waah I'm so excited!
It's called "How to Start and Run a Fashion Label" by Toby Meadows.
I can't wait to read it and hopefully give me the inspiration to start my very own label soon. *crosses fingers*
You don't know how eager I am to create clothes for men and be wonderful in it. :P
This book definitely contains all the goodness in it like a Neiman Marcus pop-up book:
So what's your favourite fashion book? Share, share :D
This one's my all time favourite, "Fashion Illustration Now" by Laird Borelli.
He makes such incredible books I never get tired of flipping through the pages.
And of course lovely Christian Dior's "The Little Dictionary of Fashion".
This one I like to read very often, its a classic that never gets old.

Annas lingerie.



Hi all, how is everyone?
Just taught some art lessons today. As you know I teach kids some art on my free time.
I also made some art for the Anna series. It is no doubt that Anna likes Victoria's secret so much.
Here she wears some purple camisoles with trimmings and 
some pink matching laced bra and undies.
Btw, I could really use some help on how to make pics larger.
Apparently, when I post my art in large its still small. Anyone? Owh..

Artsy fartsy.



How way your day?
Today I just watched "Taking Pelham 123" with bro and his gf. 
It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
Had some yummy Cold Stone ice cream after that too.
Anyway, Holly Fulton's collection for Autumn/Winter '09 is so artsy that I couldn't help draw some of her pieces - the square dress and the yellow tailored blazer. I'm really loving her bold and contemporary designs, the boxy like silhouettes and the modern ethnic creative fabrics with a look that's half couture and half ready to wear. So fun!
So creative in fact that I am reminded of Prada's FW '09 lookbook that I love:
This one really inspires me.

Fierce.
