Na Willa


'Suatu hari, aku naik kursi, naik ke bufet, mencoba membuka bagian radio yang ada kainnya. Mak berteriak-teriak, “Astaganaga, Willa! Mau diapakan radio itu!” Waktu aku bilang mau melihat orang-orang kecil yang ada di dalam radio, yang selalu omong-omong dan menyanyi itu. Mak langsung menangkap tanganku. Aku ditarik turun dari kursi. '

(Radio, bagian 1)


As a big fan of Reda Gaudiamo, a talented writer and musician, i said yes at once when bu Reda called and asked if i want to illustrate her new book, Na Willa.

I fell in love immediately with the stories, and with many help from Enrico Halim, the designer of the book and pak Dharmawan Handonowarih from Tjikini, i start working on the illustrations.

Stories of childhood, like the ones you heard over and over from your grandparents yet never got bored with them.
Heartwarming, naive, yet adventurous and colourful, I personally hope this book will be published soon :)

Please help contribute for Na Willa to be published :
