OWL | combination between Painting, Felt, and Stitches

A simple Idea comes. It think I want to draw an owl, then print it to be a greeting card. And I think it will be a simple and nice gift for my friend. But suddenly, I think I can make it much better. unfortunately, that new idea just executed 2 days ago.
the packaging

I just look around my whole room. I have many materials I can use for this project. "click!" I found! I found the way I will execute the OWL!actually I've never learned the art of painting. but I keep trying to paint with oil on canvas. in fact this is fun, I love it when mixing several colors to get the color I want.
this is the result

concept came from postal envelopes which typically has a frame of blue-red stripes. then I want to add the branches of trees, where the Owl was standing there. I stitch using the wool yarn for the edge lines. then I develop it again using a felt cloth. Felt cloth part are Owl and the sky. I want to give the impression as it arises. enjoy!
30 cm x 30 cm canvas

I think its cute enough for a gift, isn't it?

Hello people!
We’ve got 36 days on SCREENCAST. It means, we have 72 randomize pictures from any moments and any cameras we used. We always try to do best. Anything interesting to our opinion can be a funny photo or maybe a gloomy one.

And now, we have a simple idea to make-over SCREENCAST! The idea : every pictures inspired by issue/theme/corridor we decided. Every issue will go on for 6 days. So we’ll see 12 pictures taken by us according to the issue. It was really simple.

About first issue : ROOM
When you’re in Yogyakarta or Bandung as college student that come from another city/country, I bet you must be rent a room. Yes, the room which protects us from rain and sun. The room where we study and sleep. Or it can be a place where we can play with our creativity.

Every single room has its stories to tell. Maybe it can be very private and so hard to tell, but it can be very open and inspiring. We want to see personal side from it. And for next 6 days, SCREENCAST will serve you with pictures that having correlations with ROOM. We will see how creative SCREENCAST team will open up their personal side to all people all around the world. Enjoy!

SCREENCAST | a pict a day | Distance Through Images

Hey people! :D
I want to introduce newest project in collaboration with great person over there in Bandung. What is that? Let me show you this picture first.

That picture was taken by Putri Santoso in May 24 , 2010. She captured a photo which is a gift from local youth Bandung for Prambors Bandung. She is in frame actually. What is correlation between Prambors and her? If you are living in Bandung city, I bet you’re gonna find her easily. She still worked in one of well known radio station in Bandung which is Prambors Bandung as announcer. Yes! She is my partner in this project. You can find her here.

And that picture was taken by me in May 31, 2010. We call that Tugu Jogja, an icon of Yogyakarta city.

About this project
I never met Putri before. But we did much unimportant conversation via messenger. We decided to make this project. We call this SCREENCAST project | a pict a day | distance through images.

this is a share-project by us. We're two friends who lives in two different city and haven't met each-other yet, but we share the same interest of things. This project contains pictures, taken each day til the day we finally met.

we didn't do a serious photography project here, we're just simply taking a-picture-a-day everyday. Pictures from two cities will tells about moments, mumbles, craft, trees, sky or any kind of things that just caught by our eyes.

So, this blog will update every day. Glad to see you there. Thanks for visiting our project.

Between Jogja and Bandung, 8 hours away from each-other by train, this is how we share things together through images. enjoy!
