last time I wrote a journal, I wrote such a depressing writing about how I'm troubled with my own lack of confidence an comparing my self  with other great artist.

  well the world will keep on moving no matter how shitty you  feel about your self..
that's why I also try to keep move on and struggle with my own way.

and  you know what, when life gives you lemons, they give you honey to..

so  the reason I've  been inactive from DA (beside to many add pops up everywhere make a me having a hard  time to open DA ) 
is for take a break from seeing other great artist that works and success make me feel insecure.. ^^;
I just mess around in my FB for small talk with friends and keep make art just for my self and not submit it anywhere..

until in september last year I decided to join a webtoon competition from LINE naver.

you know what makes me join the contest?
because I read other contestant  entries that really inspired me,and  I still feel awful coz my skill is so far away from them,
but this time but I don't wanna just stay silence and weep for my incompetence.
while everybody in my FB timeline keep posting about how awesome all the work in there.
and everybody from newbie artist and pro artist join the competition.
this time, I wanna joining to try to make awesome webtoon to..

actually, Im not very fond of entering a contest, I rarely won, and when I loose I usually ended up very disappointed and blame my self.
but if newbie artist who are barely understand how to make comic brave enough to enter the contest.. why me who have the experience even just a little in making comic feel like giving up before even trying?

considering that. I gather my courage and enter the contest.
and surprise! without me expecting it,  I won the second place...
and before I realize it, now Im in professional contract with Line Webtoon.

it's unbelievable that now I can say that I'm living on my dream,  a goals that since forever I try to achieve.
I write and draw a weekly series as a comic artist!
I'm a pro!
not just a commission and client story, but its my own story, my own Ideas, my own OC!
not just a one shot, but a series!
me who are so lazy writing up a comic in black and white now be able to make a full color comic with weekly deadline!
*gasp*
and the story also included in the top rank of most popular Indonesia Webtoon with 1.2 M subscriber..

and  after that different publisher  also approach me so they can print my story into books.

:phew:

Im truly thankful..and I'm truly blessed..

you know that memes that ask you 
" if you going to say something to your younger self, what are you going to say? "

few years back I gonna say that I'm sorry to my younger self.. that I fail so many times, that I'm not be able to be that awesome comic artist my younger self imagine...

but now I think I wanna say this to my younger self..

hey, life not so bad if you just keep on doing  things that make yourself happy..even if its took you years and a long journey.
 there will be obstacle.. there will be people who tell you to move on, sometimes you feel that you  walking in circle, and its feel like everybody leaving you behind.
but sometimes, its okay, coz when you achieve a good things from it you feel proud and happy and its all worth the struggle.

thank you for  everyone who supported me from the last journal, even send me encouraging notes and pat my back.

thank you so much.

also if you wondering about the webtoon I wrote
