Where's the SKYLINE?

Illustration Friday: Skyline


This week’s theme at Illustration Friday is SKYLINE. Interesting. I projected the theme to my experience.

I live in a dense housing close to downtown of Jakarta. I preferred the location for traffic reason but.. living here, I miss something. The skyline! I hardly enjoyed skyline. I could enjoy sky, but not the line – the juncture between the sky and earth.

The view from my balcony is building, building and building. The good and ugly. Mixed design. Mixed culture. Modern new building. Warm building with little garden attached to the building. Colorful building. Messy building. Traditional low building. Tree is rare. It can only be seen near lower building. But definitely no.. skyline.

Hello!I'm horse of fire!My brother in law is chinese and told me that horse of fire are difficult people, troubled.Chinese families did not want babies to be born horse of fire!I don't know if that's true!:-) Tell me: is it common to eat small snails in Indonesia?!!I like it a lot and my friends find it horrible!I boiled it with certain herbes and seasoning.And then I eat it with cold beer...This has nothing to do with collage...

Hi,
back to say thanx for stepping by!
Currently i only use the PAINT of Windows' Accessories. My blog started more as a joke but then it became challenging to find out how much one can do with this program. (I normally use pencils and inks).

I 'll be back for more of yours.
