How do you begin your career as illustrator?
I just quit my job. Was working in a game developer, advertising agencies then work here and there in film production houses, also in records label. In the end, I just wanna grab my pencil and draw. I didn’t know if I could make illustration as a career, so it was a gambling back then. But there are always upsides and downsides in every profession you choose, so why not choose the one you most passionate about? To make it short, I didn’t think about it. I just did it. Even if I get hurt so many times, stuck in so many downsides of it, I keep coming back doing what I do. I guess, it’s like an addiction. Never been so dedicated before in my life. I just know I was meant to do this. There’s no turning back.

How to keep your creativity works?
I think I try to keep myself open to almost anything. I mean, even a boring mundane everyday life can be an inspiration. So keep observing, collecting every details I like everyday. It doesn’t have to be an object, it can be a sound or even just be a split second of a moment.

Favorite media?
Pencil and graphite.

What’s your favorite object?
Waves.

Do you have any tips to keep the mood flowing?
Make sure you always get a good laid. Ha! Honestly, no. I don’t have any tips. I guess, as I get older I just know how to switch my mood easier.

Your future plan?
I consider myself more of a doer than a planner. So I don’t really like to share my plans unless it almost near launch. So, just wait and see. :)

How to reach you?
Just say a prayer. Five times a day or every Sunday. However you like.
