Domi Dolls

Cover dari majalah yang sementara ini saya desain. Ngedesain sendirian lho! Edan, pas deadline, saya terpaksa nangkring empat puluh satu jam di depan layar komputer. Untung aja beres. Selama empat bulan terakhir, inilah cover favorit saya. Majalahnya bisa dilihat di sini, lowres tentunya.

This is the latest cover of a lifestyle magazine which currently I work for. I've done this magazine single handed, design wise of course. The last hours of the deadline took forty one hours of nonstop designing, four glasses of coffee, two bowl of breakfast cereal, one burger, one portion of noodle, two boxes of office food, and a flu. Damn it felt not good at all. But I had to keep on going. And thank God everything finished on time.

For the last four months, this cover is my favorite. You can visit the magazine here, in low resolution of course. Enjoy.

WSR, the Poet

This is my latest illustration of W.S. Rendra, a wellknown Indonesia poet. Here's one of his poetries:

Seringkali aku berkata,
Ketika semua orang memuji milikku
Bahwa sesungguhnya ini
hanyalah titipan

Bahwa mobilku hanyalah titipan-Nya
Bahwa rumahku hanyalah titipan-Nya
Bahwa hartaku hanyalah titipan-Nya
Bahwa putraku hanyalah titipan-Nya
Tetapi, mengapa aku tak pernah bertanya: mengapa Dia menitipkan padaku???

Untuk apa Dia menitipkan ini padaku ???
Dan kalau bukan milikku, apa yang harus kulakukan untuk milik-Nya itu ???...

Adakah aku memiliki hak atas sesuatu yang bukan milikku?
Mengapa hatiku justru terasa berat, ketika titipan itu diminta kembali oleh-Nya ?

Ketika diminta kembali, kusebut itu sebagai musibah
kusebut itu sebagai ujian, kusebut itu sebagai petaka,
kusebut dengan panggilan apa saja untuk melukiskan bahwa itu adalah derita.

Ketika aku berdoa, kuminta titipan yang cocok dengan hawa nafsuku, aku ingin lebih banyak harta, ingin lebih banyak mobil, lebih banyak rumah, lebih banyak popularitas, dan kutolak sakit, kutolak kemiskinan,

Seolah semua “derita” adalah hukuman bagiku.
Seolah keadilan dan kasih Nya harus berjalan seperti matematika: aku rajin beribadah, maka selayaknyalah derita menjauh dariku, dan nikmat dunia kerap menghampiriku.

Kuperlakukan Dia seolah mitra dagang, dan bukan Kekasih. Kuminta Dia membalas “perlakuan baikku”, dan menolak keputusanNya yang tak sesuai keinginanku,

Gusti, padahal tiap hari kuucapkan, hidup dan matiku hanyalah untuk beribadah… “ketika langit dan bumi bersatu, bencana dan keberuntungan sama saja”

Renungan Indah
WS Rendra

One Piece at the Time

Project leaf is almost finish. I'm bewildered by myself. Why am I couldn't finish the project sooner? Okay, I got a lot. More than I could handle. And to my amazement I've done it. Pushing myself again and again seems to be the only reasonable thing to do right now.

Southerner Constitution

Photo: My station in the South.

Lately, people always asked me this question, "Wah, santai ya sekarang?" Actually, it wasn't like you guys thought. I have to handle this product single handedly, design-wise. It was overwhelming at the start, but now I could handle things quite good.

Aside from the product it self, I have to handle the related product as well. And I always look the brighter side, not everything have a bright side but almost certain that everything have a brighter side, now I know more about the company from a wider perspective.

Plus, I have to handle another thing, something weekly like my previous job descriptions. It struck me like thunder, "Ya ampun, kuno banget!" Okay, it seems that I made a big deal out of something small. But, "Hey!" we're wasting our most precious thing in this world: time."

Still, I have enough constitution to handle another remark like, "Banyak senyum ya sekarang?" To that, I will always reply, "Hell yeah!"

P.S. G, I'm still working on the leaf.

Tragedy of Majene

These images show the process from sketches to finished infographics. I was only directing, not actually done the whole infographics.

The image above scanned from my scrapbook, then KVA —a colleague of mine— translated my sketch into beautiful infographics below. Last but not least, YS —the editor— edited the texts to fit the entire layout.

Long Time No Updates

Time is something I don't really have lately. My recent activities as a husband and newest member of the Wattimena family needed more active participation. Not that I don't enjoy it. I love it.

Being a married man, I gain more perspectives in life. The saying 'quick to listen, slow to anger' is greatly useful as useful as, 'wise men talk because they have something to say, fools have to say something'. My unrelated brother also have a good saying he quoted somewhere, 'everyone is wise until he speaks'. Similar to the story of Jonah.

Anyway this is my latest illustration. Enjoy.
