WEEKLY JOURNAL #1: Painting on Pouch with Diela Maharanie

It was lovely saturday afternoon, I am lucky enough to win a free seat of Painting on Pouch Workshop with Diela Maharanie host by Living Loving and WomanTalk.

A week ago, I saw Kak Miranti's (she's co-founder of LivingLoving) instagram post about this 'giveaway'. Anyone can win a free seat and they ask us to write comment on WomanTalk the reason why we want to join the class. So I submitted, this Thursday they announced the winners and I am one of them. Thank you for choosing me! 💕

It's also the second time I meet Kak Diela, the first time was not long ago in the Desain Grafis Indonesia talkshow, I posted some photos of it in my facebook.

Diela Maharanie is my first favorite Indonesian artist, I followed her since 2013. Back then, Twitter was a hit, she's always updated her recent works, sometimes she also share her playlists. I download every-single-song she tweeted. Yesss believe me. U2, The Cardigans, M83, REM, Feist, Bjork, Mew, Blondie, Cocorosie, Badly Drawn Boy and many others. I love them all! ❤

In the first met, I ask her several questions like how is it like living as an artist in Indonesia, the difference of Indonesian client vs International client, how to maintain creative block, and tips for beginner like me. I already know she's actually has no art-school background but it's surprised me when the host tell us that Diela starting her Illustrator career at 22 years old age, it means I am now just the same age like her when begin this all.
