Graceful


This artwork was loosely inspired by my experience visiting a wedding exhibition with my friend, Sita. We initially went to a mall to spend some coupon at a newly-opened burger franchise. No one between us knew the mall held a grand exhibition of wedding facilities. We decided to go to the burger restaurant first.

At the wedding exhibition, we saw around twenty company booths included hotels, designer ateliers, photography studios, and honeymoon traveling bureaus. Almost every booth displayed wedding gowns and nice furniture.


At one booth which we did not know which company had, there was a beautiful dress that was not as glamorous as others, yet it attracted me and Sita. It had long transparent loose sleeves and the upper and skirt parts were basically formed by layered tulle clothes. Its outer color was pink, but we could see the materials were pink and pale blue, so it gave a soft purple nuance. There were fake flowers at any sizes attached to the dress, mostly around the diagonal part of the front side.


I and Sita were overwhelmed by the dress since it was almost effortlessly beautiful. It might not suitable worn by a bride, but it's still gorgeous to wear to special occasions. Sadly we did not know who was the designer or what atelier it was in. I even tried to search it on social medias only to find out that the place for the dress was belonged to "display area" without any company name.

Conscious


Consciousness is not always related to opened eyes or clearer hearing. In fact, it depends on what state your brain at. To be conscious is not always be seen by people, same goes with the brain that can not be seen easily without equipment.

Imagination Inflation


Do you like to imagine some scene over and over? I like to, just for fun. Mine are not even close to a false memory though, but I found something on Wikipedia that is close to what I need to dramatize imagination. It's imagination inflation, a repetitive imagination that leads a person to a false memory.

My favorite kind of imagination is an accidental meeting of two people at random places out of their schedules. When it comes to imagining, what is your favorite scene?

Comifuro X (2018)



Oops, there is almost no post this month! Okay let me share my experience joining a fanart bazaar for the first time.

My childhood friend, Anchan, asked me to give a shot to join Comifuro at Jakarta. It was planned on late 2016, which means two years ago. Comifuro is an otaku bazaar and some people believe that it is dominated with fanarts. We also dragged another childhood friend, but she couldn't stay long and decided to support us from afar starting from mid 2017.

Our plan was to join Comifuro that was held later on 2016, but we ran out of time to prepare everything. On early 2017 we missed a chance to participate in Comifuro. We didn't expect that the upcoming Comifuro would be that soon.

Around late 2017 we had been changing plans. Anchan once wanted to join other Japan-themed bazaar at my city but she couldn't make it. Another Comifuro was held again, which then made us realize thet the event is held twice a year, and we missed it again.

Until I said to myself and Anchan that this year should be our year.

Short story I finally met Anchan at Jakarta and we did the event with much help from bunch of good samaritans. The sale wasn't like our expectation though, and it went the same to the people helping us. They said this time's Comifuro was giving different result compared with the previous ones. Eventhough, I didn't regret my trip. I earned new experiences that I will treasure forever!

Delusion


Spending some morning to brisk-walk before my rush hour begins is good to my brain cell's oxygen regulation. I have so many new concepts for my next, next, next artwork. It's good for killing the past.

Delusion is a fruit of my brisk-walking time. It's not something melancholy, though. Okay, maybe a little. It is about getting new inspiration between my busy days. Getting a little escape like what I do every weekends. I feel like diving to nonexistent world. I think it's good to run a mind like that.
