Independence Day?

Being an independent designer is what I choose to be. For the past 7 years, I am celebrating my freedom. Freedom to do what I choose to do, to work on the things I love, to schedule my own time, to pursue what I believe in, without being forced by someone else's will.

And I'm very grateful for that.

Yes, I admit it's not always smooth sailing. Maneuvering your own ship, working independently, is indeed a big challenge. But when you manage to get through it, you will feel immensely rewarded. The lesson, the pride and the sense of achievement, are unmeasurable.

Happy Independence Day.

Start Sketching

My blog has been abandoned for what now, two and a half years?

I was reminded to write again because of my interview on tobucil: Sheila D dan Gerilya Handmade (Sheila D and Handmade Guerrilla). There, I mentioned how important a blog is, yet I realized I haven't been blogging at all.

Yesterday, as a random act, I got off my house, went to the mall to find some peace for myself and started sketching. I haven't been sketching for God knows how long. I was happy to find out that I was still able to. I say to myself, I'm gonna start sketching a lot of fish, starting today!

I achieved something today. I went home feeling happy.
