KL Children's Book Festival 27 Oct-2 Nov 2011

Illustration exhibition at the Gallery of the KL Library

Last hour before The Exhibition's closing day,
I should have taken picture of my drawings in this hall with all other participants for my personal collection. But with two toddlers running around and the thunderclaps banging outside the building, the only option was to run with the kids to our car in the parking lot before the thunderstorm gets uglier.

But then the experience of walking in the exhibition hall with my children, showing them the art works and let them find which one is mom's drawing... is priceless...:)

The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators...
and YES, Children do Rules!:) 

My daughter posed in front one of of mommy's art work:)

Happy 14th anniversary, love

To my Raw, my one and the only Raw..

If you must steal, then steal my heart, it's yours for the taking.
If you must lie, then lie beside me because I need you by my side. 
And if you must cheat, then cheat death, because I cannot live without you.

Seven - Draw your days - day seven

My seven of seven 2011: Caca's drawing:)

Today is the last day of seven 2011.
we started from monday 7th and has finished on sunday 13th
Seven day..
So many ways..
But i can't run away..
I can't run away:)

Monday, I could wait till Tuesday
If I make up my mind
Wedn'sday would be fine
Thursday's on my mind
Friday'd give me time
Saturday could wait
But Sunday'd be too late
Do I have to tell a story
Of a thousand rainy days
Since we first met?
It's a big enough umbrella
But it's always me that ends up
Getting wet. Yeah, Yeah.

Seven - Draw your days - day two

My Seven day two

Seven - Draw your days

 SEVEN: Draw Your Days! is an event to celebrate the anniversary of CAB*, so we do it each year on the same dates, always starts on November 7th. Our first event was in 2009, when we also launched our website. We also printed and exhibited a lot of participants’ drawings at Galeri Soemardja, FSRD ITB, while having a talk session. The result was indeed pleasantly surprising. The works that were produced day-by-day appeared in different media: drawings, comics, photographs, even collages and poems, which came not only from Indonesia but also from the United States and The Netherlands.
2010 brought similarly surprising results, and also coming from many parts of the world, including Kuwait and Malaysia. Friends who are spending most of their time typing and clicking admitted that they found relief upon returning to their pens and pencils. Friends who are used to creating fantasy and fictional stories found it a refreshing change to recreate their own, real experiences in drawings and graphics. Among the most interesting things is, although we knew that the same week can be entirely different for everyone, we didn’t really ‘realize’ it until we saw the reflections of it, as expressed by different individuals.

And this is my SEVEN day ONE:)
