whatever you've done with your hands, you've done it wonderfully.. :)

oia, kalo mau coba jadi illustrator majalah, coba aja apply & sertakan contoh ilustrasinya. Contoh2nya itu disesuaikan gaya ilustrasinya dengan nafas majalahnya (misalnya majalah wanita tentu beda dg majalah anak2, dst). With a talent like yours, i'm sure that wouldn't be difficult for you. Good luck!
Aku add link mu juga ya.. ;)
Thanx :)

Hi Enigma,
This piece is beautiful! And it does look like the cover of a childrens book -- one that I would read simply because of the cover art. :)

p.s. I'm having problems with my email so I haven't seen the email you sent me. Should be fixed today.
