My unstoppable imagination
Flying high above the sky
I am between fantasy and reality
Agus Rois’ new book, using my artwork.
I’ve got a message from the editor that the book using my artwork will be ready to launch in a week. That’s a really good news of the weeks.
This is it, the painting of Mustika Naga (Dragon’s Magic Stone).

“Jika Rindu itu abadi,
Maka Cinta terlahir kembali, Sayangku.
Berjanjilah, tidak lagi terlambat.
Jika kita terlahir kembali, cepat-cepat menujuku.
Pun aku akan memburumu.
Tak butuh waktu lebih lama dari seketika
Untuk saling mengenal lagi di antara kita berdua.
Sebab, sama kita membawa Rindu ke mana-mana.”
“Mustika Naga – Candra Malik”
I mentioned about Candra Malik’s Mustika Naga the novel earlier. The book was officially release yesterday, and available on major book store in Indonesia.

“A piece of you and me.” Alf Sukatmo. 2015. Gouache on paper.
Fool i might be
Older but never wiser
Hoping for what was not written in my hand
Was it just a piece of you in me?
“A dance for tomorrow II (Serenade for Nda)”

Calm yet wild like the ocean
Living for sharing
Loving for caring
Giving without taking
Because tomorrow hold you no fear

“98” by Alf Sukatmo. Gouache on paper. 11/06/2014
Tak mau tenang
Dialektika pikiranku seperti peluru
Dan mereka melenyapkanku
Hissing like a bullet
Loud and noisy
And they’ve made me disappear
