Girls night out.


Girls night out. 
A Kate Moss inspired outfit from the costume gala, 
a ruffled Marchesa dress, 
a Balmain tailor or simply a ruffled top. 


Wonder what's everyone dressing up for Halloween..
Maybe a traditional costume or some fashion icon perhaps.
One more day left for the day :D

Glamour girls.

There's always that grand event to attend to.
Dressed up and ready to go.

Hello..
Here are my glamour watercolour girls. The same ones that are in "Couture".
The left one loves toned down dresses while the other prefers avante-garde costumes. 
They just love to dress fierce for every glamourous occassions they attend to.
Work has been piling up these days but they don't botther me as much as before. Just enjoying it.
Like as a quote I was inspired with, "Be the best at each moment, so that each day becomes the best."
Hope everyone else is doing good these days.
Have a nice day!

Weekend inspirational quotes 14.



He waited for other people to understand what he was doing, instead of doing what they wanted. Balenciaga never compromised.
Unknown 
A lot of fashion houses design for the catwalk and not the street—then you see the clothes on a regular guy and it's a mess. Don't disguise your personality behind labels; impose it on the clothes.
Kris Van Asst.
My grandmother told me there are two ways of living: You can either survive or you can really make a life. There is eating and there is dining. She would always give that extra little effort, and I still believe that is important—to make things more beautiful makes all the difference.

Daydream the froyos.


Daydreaming.

Halo,
Here's the watercolour girl in her thoughts, daydreaming.
It's weekend again. Weekends are usually fun because there is choir practice at home and the house is always full of people. It's always nice to have friends and family friends around.
Ate some Sour Sally froyos with Bff after my art class. How I miss those froyos I've been craving for!
I don't know if they have lots of them outside Indonesia but frozen yogurts are popular here for sure,
Sour Sally, Heavenly Blush, Red Mango, etc... Yumm :D
Oh, here's a sneak peak of my student's work. She took the picture herself to paint.
Too cute!

Cheap and cheerful.


 Why wait?

Managed to make a men shirt in one day, yay! Talk about project runway-ish.
Didn't get to take pics but next time though.
I now can make clothes for my bro and dad. Ha, they shall be my model for experimenting.
Tomorrow is tie :D Its a pretty exhausting week but then I remember what teacher said,
"It's fashion, you're always going to be busy."
Right now I'm so addicted to this song, The Kills - Cheap and Cheerful.
Helps me keep my mood up.
I wonder hows everybody's week going..having a nice weekday perhaps?
Good day all, tomorrow's TGIF :D

Scene queen.


The Scene Queen.

Spent the whole day giving art classes today since morning..
And apart from that, still catching up on a deadline to work on. Aaakhh..
But I got to hang out with Bff eventhough it was just for a while, its been ages since we did so :D
I also still can't get over the "The Ugly Truth" movie, its sooo good, I want to watch it again!
Anyway, I found these lovely photos by Jesse Wright.
I think my illustration for today would fit perfect for the scene, wouldn't it?
I'd call her, "The Scene Queen"

Fall sketches.



Hello weekend,
I've been really busy lately, doing three projects in a week. Guess its not a weekend after all.
Managed to make some sketches for fall. The first on is already an old artwork that I like.
And the second one would be a couple on a trip to the park :D
Brother just came back from Sg and bought me a book I wanted called "Modern Menswear", so happy..
Anyways, a lovely someone was interested in letting me illustrate a children's book for them.
Its still not sure yet, but I'm crossing my fingers for it.. I think it will be a really fun experience.
Have a great weekend!

Twas a cloudy day.


Good day all,
Things have been going well, just more busier.
Classes were okay today, we were making basic mens shirt until the lights went off.
What a bummer. And to add it up, it rained. Freaky-much staying in an antique-looking-uni :O
The weather has been gloomy these days. You know what that means, rainy season is starting.
You know Indonesia is always hot all year round so it's finally good to have some rain.
I've also added some notebooks in the shop.
I like simple, so they're just very minimalistic.
Wishing you a goodnight/day.


Relaxing.


Hey, hey..
Today, I just went out with uni friends right after class.
Then just laze around, I'm so tired from last night's late nights doing hw.
I was already falling asleep a while ago but I just had to finish up some illustrations;
some new notebooks coming soon this week for the shop!
Also, I'm quite happy for one of my art student, Michelle.
She sold her paintings already; artist in the making perhaps. Yeah :D
Goodnight from me, good day to you!

The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress.

Burberry lifestyle Fall/Winter 2009.


I heart Burberry.

Keeping this short.
Uni was good! I'm so glad were just a few in class so its nice there's more space.
But first day was already busy, busy, busy but fun anyways.
I'm tired but enjoying it.
