New Gallery: Collages in My Journals 2016

Guess what, earlier this year while doing spring cleaning initially I wanted to get rid of my old journals, but now I realised they are full of funky collages I made out of old magazines and scrap materials. Nope, I don’t want to throw away the collages yet (though I so wanted to burn all those outdated journal entries :D). So I thought, taking pictures of and instagram them as a series might be a good idea?

Takeaway from Sweden: OMNIA MIRARI ETIAM TRITISSIMA – a colouring sheet

160914_omniamirari

Home again in Jakarta after almost 3 weeks in Sweden. And I’m still amazed by how visiting the home and the tomb of ‘my hero’ – my favorite imaginary grandpa, professor, teacher, advisor, best friend – the Swedish scientist Carl Linnaeus, in the city of Uppsala, never failed to give me such refreshing re-look on life and to save me from feeling stuck.

Quick peek: how I draw a puppet head (41 seconds video)

Hi friends!

I’m experimenting with screen recorder and Windows movie maker… and I had super fun! My first video was a complete failure {lol} but the second one is what you’re watching above.

Ah yes, of course, never ever give up! Maybe next time I will make better videos, but in the meantime, enjoy a quick peek on how I draw a puppet {for coloring pages}. It’s a 41 seconds speedy video. Trial-and-error is somehow really fun! :D

Xoxo, artfully

Happy new year my friends!

Happy belated… but we still have 364 days to celebrate in 2016 counted as today :D

Anyway, how was your 2015? Mine was wonderful. I feel so blessed. It was a year of new opportunities, as well as a year of healing. Even though I started the year with a (quite painful) dental surgery, I took it as a removal of something that didn’t serve me anymore, a healing. A good sign.

Also last year, the doctors finally found out the cause…
