Your beautiful voice
Singing about your life
But never shows the sorrow
That tattooed on your back
We know
It peeks through your low back dress
A husband you never have
Left you a child you must raise
The people mocking you
But love never fails on you
From stage to stage
Gig after gig
You earns your peaceful life

Dear friend, Happy birthday

How Far Is Your Imagination?

"How far is your imagination" by Alf Sukatmo. Vector Artwork.

“How far is your imagination” by Alf Sukatmo. Vector Artwork.

She wanted to have a goldfish
In a pond with a lotus
And she named her fish “Sri”
I said
So let’s us see how far is your imagination, Dee
And so she drew a fish
A pond and a lotus
Strong her will
With her mind so free
Like my daughter should be

I promised Dee that i going to get up yesterday, and i kept it. Although i couldn’t do much activity, i managed to finished this for her last night.
As you see, that this image has changed from the previous version, i have fully replaced the man on the right corner with a goldfish.

The Pirate’s Daughter

“The Paper Boats” by Alf Sukatmo. Vector artwork.

Dee asked me to teach her how to made the boats and a pirate hat from unused brochures and a piece of old newspaper.
“Well sure, why not,” i said.
“Can we play it together?” she asked.
I had a deadline coming up, but she had no one to play with except me, and i didn’t want to disappoint her.
So, i decided to made her several boats and a hat, but she refused, all that she asked was i taught her how to make them. It sure going to take a little longer time, but again, she had her way to melt a father heart (and made her father ignoring upcoming deadline.)
After all that was finish, we played the pirate, i am the pirate and she still held her role, as pirate’s daughter. And guess what, even a quiet man can do sword dance if his little daughter requested him.

A simple request from a daughter and a simple moment on a simple day of a father have delivered, i still had enough time to meet the deadline and even made this picture. I watch her as she sleeps,  a smile, a beautiful smile on her lips complete my perfect evening.

A Little Bit Of This And That

“Amore” by Alf Sukatmo. Vector artwork. 2014

It felt like a long time, i never touched my computer again since the doctor told me to take a long bed rest. After six months living in a dull and boring life, i think a little colors would be nice.
So, i turned my computer on, started Adobe Illustrator, and started drawing lines. I have a lot of distraction tough, sometimes i turned my head from the computer, and watched Brasil had difficulty to win their game, even they were not in their best performance so far, the boys of yellow jersey still had their luck.
Anyway, being away from digital painting software for a long time made me work like a beginner, it took four hours to finished this.., if i am drawing this for a client, i surely get fired.

…So friends, what do you think of my new digital artwork?
