Eid Mubarak 1435 Greeting Cards, illustrated by me
|Lots of things happened lately in July. And apparently, I kept myself busy past month. As a freelancer, I kinda needed to work extra to "sell" myself to get some projects. And for some reasons, I used to use my Instagram account (@reevosaulus) as a media to promote my works from my graphic design, photography even my illustration works. ||And somehow, I could get some projects from it. There's an upcoming project I'm gonna do, but I kinda think that it is too early for me to spill what kind of work it's gonna be. But as a sneak peek, it's gonna be an illustration. So that is why, I sketch more often to practice, post it on Instagram and get the feedbacks.|
The left one is some kind of my quick congratulatory artwork for the newly
elected President of Republic Indonesia, Sir Joko Widodo \(^o^)/
The right one is just some work I did on my free time. Since I don't do color
that much, I tried to pay more attention into details and still practice it.
|Another thing is, I became a sudden tour guide. And yes, let me re-write. A tour guide. And it became accidentally. Well some of you may not know that when it comes to travel, I'd rather to travel alone. Because in my point of view, I can concentrate more like; it's between me and the city. No major disturbance would be nice. And because of that sometimes, I hang out with local peoples when I travel. ||Based on that point of view, I'm a local Jakartan and think it's good to help tourists that is trying to reach this city and wandering around, hmm ? So I accidentally met these 2 German girls at Gambir Station, trying to find the entrance to Monas and I was about to go there because I needed to take some footages for a video project. So I asked them for help and it's all began there.|

They're living in Hamburg, Germany.
|Also, I did a bit reminiscence in the past 2 years when I was on duty as the tourism ambassador of Jakarta, and I had to learn the touristic places and any other aspects of the city. I worked closely with the ministerial peoples, the governors and the regency leaders. But it's "just" all about that. But showing my city to some tourists is kinda interesting for me. I took them to Old Town Area, ride the City Tour Bus, eat some local delicacies, ||and (hopefully) they're happy. It's satisfying for me. Things continue when the German girls traveled to Yogyakarta and they met another 2 German-Dutch couples and they recommended me to the couples so there you go, I made 4 new friends last months. And the couples we're as friendly as the German girls as well ! And hopefully they could treat me the same whenever I travel to Europe in the upcoming years, hmm ? :P |
