Master Study: Jean Giraud (Moebius)

Last week, I had this strangest dream of entering Arzach world. Perhaps it was a sign for me to incorporate more bright pastels on my works, just like Sir Jean Giraud did. I scrolled over his works and did this master study based on his color palette and the character I saw on my dream. 

My drawing is for sure nothing compare to Moebius, but I learned a couple of things: 1) to make a black and white line as solid as possible, 2) to prepare color palette beforehand, 3) prepare rags or paper towel if you are working with pen and ink, sometimes it would get messy without even you knowing it. 
Moebius' works as my references 

As a bonus, I will leave you with No Doubt-The Ska EP, that I found today. Oh they're so good in covering Guns of Navarone and Ghost Town! (I like how Amy Winehouse and No Doubt had the same EP cover theme for their take on ska, classic 2Tone.)



Track list:
 //Live Side//A1 Guns Of Navaronne /A2 Racist Friend /A3 Move On/Ghost Town 
//Lost Moon Ska Sessions//B1 Up Yours /B2 Everything 's Gone Wrong

New Artwork for Randomist Show at Radio Semut

For past 6 months, I am airing regularly at this indie radio station called Radio Semut. This radio previously owned by one of my good friend Adi Restiadi. Now together with Julian, we are managing this radio in new format.

I, who work freelance and got so many times for mind-wandering, am doing basically anything, from creating show (Randomist, Pusaka Beatnika and more to come), making playlist, pitching ideas for the show, PR-ing and promoting. DIY ethos is still handy in any situation, right?

Once Adi told me to have several artwork to use in our show, so we know who's the DJ and such. So here comes the idea of mish-mashing all the things I like in one scene. UFO, commet, giant lizards and polkadots. I also hand drawn the font and rearrange it with Photoshop. Thank you Shalimma & Aulia who picked exactly the same color scheme, that reminds me so much of The Clash's London Calling album. Now I got my personalized artwork for my show! wooot!

(I took pictures of the drawing process on my instagram, in case you are curious)
