Cicit Cuit

Very sorry for the absence in my blog. No excuses, I know, but really.. I was so busy with the website making (www.motiffliving.com) and stuffs. It was my first attempt on making a website from scratch.. will try to post about this some other time. Meanwhile, you can go directly to the site - just in case I'll be too 'busy' again for my next post ;D



So, I think this project was about more than a year ago (oops). "Cicit Cuit" picture book, created for celebrating the first month anniversary of Edward & Ilona, the newborn twins. Debby, their mom came with this idea while she was still pregnant. The story was about a chicken family. A simple story, yet so touching. Do you know? Debby wrote it herself :)


Then, I was pretty surprised when the book was sent to me. It came in a super cute package, filled with cookies, boiled eggs with its little nest and finger puppets - represent each character of the book. These packages were sent to their loved ones.. I bet they were as thrilled as me! Such a beautiful idea for a wonderful life event celebration, don't you think? It's been always a pleasure to work with people with creative minds.

Tupperware Sandwich Keeper




Tupperware wanted to make a romantic-themed sandwich keeper for couple. Personally, I'm not the kind of person who thinks 'romantic' as candle light dinner or any other melancholic/ dramatic scenes. Despite of the 'cliche-ness', I have another concept about it. For me, romantic is just as simple as being comfortable with your partner, no matter what you do and wherever you are.  After a brain storming (with my very own self), 'picnic' sounds so representative. So, I proposed "picnic in the park" as one of the 'romantic' idea.  Very glad that they kinda agree with that idea.. (I assumed so, as they had approved it ;))

Pictogram

 "Kan Kubajak Hatimu"

  "Oh, Crab!"

These were illustrations I made for Pictogram, a Facebook group I joined in the beginning of 2012. It challenges their (mostly illustrators) members to draw accordingly to the theme given every 2 weeks. The winner of this challenge is based on the post got most "like" from other members. Any prize? Yes, he/ she will be privileged to decide the next theme. As simple as that.

I didn't post a lot in Pictogram (yet I'm a regular voter!), as far as I remembered, I just did 3 challenges. Here, I want to share two of them.

I made the first picture ("Kan Kubajak Hatimu"/ "Will Pirate Your Heart"), for the theme "Pirate". Instead of drew the real pirate, I chose to drew a "heart-pirate". I know it's a lil' bit cheesy! After all, the concept was inspired by the cheesy (if not flirty) line that usually appears on local trucks (in Indonesia). The execution was somehow tattoo-ish look, just to make it flamboyant.  Apparently, this post got the most "like".  The heart-pirate won :)

The second one, was made for "Under the Sea" theme. Had no enough time to be splurged on, I tried to find something simple to draw, but still has a twist. I chose octopus and had it roughly-sketched. But then, the next day, I read my friend's tweet: "Oh, crap!" and suddenly thought that it phonetically the same as "crab" - a creature from under the sea. A twist! Plus, it just took me approximately 30 minutes to finish it. Didn't won the challenge, but it was fun to read other members' comments about this post. Btw, yes, the crab got chicken-pox disease (should make the ambiguous chicken illos later, maybe? nah.)

oops!

Hi! It's almost a year since my last post. Actually there are some exciting projects I want to share here, but I haven't got the time yet, as I'm doing something different & pretty big (career diversification if I may say). Will update soon ;)
