Random question You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What colour would you be and why?
Transparent. Let the natural color stay. I like the natural state of things and emphasize it.
Are you a bold introvert? Have you always been one? I’ve always been bold when it comes to art. More like what I can’t express in real life, I express it through my art. I’m not a talkative person, so I’m throwing my ideas into action to show people what’s going on in my mind. When people found out they were like “I’ve never expected you to be like this..” even my face betrayed my mind. I am the walking definition of ‘don’t judge a book by it’s cover’. I love it when people call me crazy because of the gap.
What do you do? I’m a freelance illustrator and just recently starting my own clothing brand Bold Introvert (I guess that’s why I’m here kk).
I made a debut as a webtoon author with No Brainer (discontinued). I’ve finished a comedy genre webtoon titled Sempit Lab in Bahasa and now working on another comedy series in English titled Just Boys.
Sometimes I also do graphic design and architecture. I’m a Bachelor of Architecture yet I see Architecture as a life fundamental more than career (I guess it’s not my passion :v).
What are you most proud of? I’m proud of my hard work. Once I’ve set a goal, I would work my ass off to achieve that. Even if in the end I couldn’t achieve my exact goal, but when I look back at it I will only find the trace of my hard work and growth rather than failure.
Do you feel that your personality trait has helped you achieve your goals? Definitely, I love my trait, my solitude had inspired me to imagine the unexpected, the twist of a story, the crazy plotline, extraness, and dorkiness. I kept thousands of words in my head to say one meaningful line, a punchline. I kind of have this chill attitude, I’d stay calm in midst of chaos and minding my own business. As a freelance, this really helps me facing deadlines. Yeah, let’s chill fam.

What advice do you have for introverts who are worried about chasing their dreams? First, believe in yourself. Sharpen your skill and step up your challenge. I know it’s not easy, baby step or giant step if you keep walking you’ll reach there eventually.
The second, find your healing time! Like reading, drawing, singing, watching some Kdramas, or maybe hiking, wherever your heart goes! Sometimes insecurities would eat me alive and I couldn’t say a single word to b*tch about it but drawing and writing would help me a lot.
At last, grow your connection, no, not some kind of hang out squad who loves partying all night, for me, it’s easier to make a connection based on our passion/dreams than some make-believe social friend lol (Leo is my only friend, Leo is my laptop). They could help you a lot reaching for your dreams.
