Never Stop Dreaming..

not just ordinary dream, and don't end up to be a daydreamer..
but this dream is sumthing you want in life, sumthing that you try to achieve.

My dream is to be a Manga Artist.. maybe you guys so freaking bored to hear this.. haha

but yeah.. its my dream since Im in junior high school.. some people said.. Im already get what I dreaming of.. well I said its not entirely achieved.. but at least Im on my way to do that..:D

remembering the old times, when I'm still young and ambitious, I really wanted to share my history back than when I'm still dreaming..:d
I'm started to draw since Im very young.. and born from not very much rich family..
I'm in love wih comic and story book when Im in elementary school.. maybe younger.. but our family economic problem cant let me to buy plenty of book of stuff..

I'm a book worm since I'm a kitten, I spend so many hours on library, any kind of it.. I make fried with my neighbor just because my neighbor have lotsa books, and when what Im doing is only sit in the corner of her library instead of playing with her.. she ditch me out.. hahaha

the urge to having my own Comics and book make me became creative, I decide to make my own book, making my own story,. only few pages of story, I draw and colored it my self.. that is happen on elementary school..

I still remember the title and the story the first story I made.
its about a caterpillar who is raised by the dragonfly family, and beiing ditch out by their family becouse the caterpillar change into cocoon. the cocoon drop into a bucket of red paint.. and from that bucket suddenly come out a beautiful red butterfly.. hahahhaha (weird eh? and so when I stil young I already obsessed with red )

I keep making story, and the illustration also.. my friend and classmate loved the book I made..
until at Junior high.. I meet a friend who can draw manga.. she teach me sumthing that is more that illustration book..manga/comic concept using lotsa picture in every panel.. more picture in only one page.. and if she could made her own manga.. that is mean I can do the same..

so I start drawing manga, using just pencil and note book..

than its escalate into HVS papper and using ink to make my manga..

when I'm in senior high school.. I dare enough to submit my works to magazine and newspaper.. the response is wonderful.. I even got extra money.. I'm getting ambitious to became a mangaka..

than finally in year 2003 I try to submit My own manga into some publisher.. 200 pages of manga.. fully Manual.. the publisher accepted the manga, and it sell quite a lot, in the same time I also make my own studio with friends. and published one manga tittle with them..

the studio activity then became my main interest.. I always working and publish comic works under my studio name.. drawing illustration and manga/comic became my main job..

but that not good enough for me.. Petshopbox studio are getting famous in manga world, but Archie the RedCat name fading away..
the studio job increase more than just mere illustration and comic. its change into merchandise shop, retails, and stuff. the vision of the Studio also change into sumthing I dont like.. and make me far..far away from my goal into becoming Manga artist..
it hard and very sad for me.. but than I decide to quit from my own studio that I build from scratch..

I decide to fight on my own.. in my own way.. standing in my own feet
if I could publish my own comic book in 2003 I have the chance to do the same now..
even tough its scary.. even though there is so many obstacle..

I know my dream going to became true once again..
yesterday the editor already gave me the contract..
than is make me brave enough to say..

Archie the RedCat is back people..
are you guys ready for me?

twiiiittttt tuiiiitttt

I just made my self a twitter.. just for fun..:D still dont have follower or following anyone, but that is my intention, Im to much updating my Facebook status, I feel like Im bugging everybody.. Im updating my status not for sppaming someone notification Inbox, or to attract people to comment my status and stuff.. I just update it coz I want to write sumthing and speak up my mind..

I guess twitter is far most suitable with what I want in this case..

bur recently I made a conversation with my friend.. she said, Facebook and twitter make most of the blogger forgot to update their blog..
they are far more concentrate with facebook and the blogger buzz now seems so quite..

is that so?
is that is the reason why the person I follow on blog never updated their blog?
and also the reason behind my rareness in updating my own blog??

hm.. I guess not for me.. Im just busy with works.. that's all.. but i really wanted to updated my blog everyday like i used to.. the problem is.. I dont know what to write.. =_=

its feel long time go I dont post this blog with my rants.. so busy with many stuff.. well at least the job desk for august is 70% clear..
the rest of the job whom are not finish is mainly because the client still pending the progress, one is because the revision, another one is because the payment problem.. =_=a

i hate when there is a pending payment.. *sigh*

Luckily I still have many projects to go.. and have many plan to make some income. but I dunno.. lets see about that in the future.
because right now..Im concentrate in one project that is really consume my mind, my strength.. and drained my soul..

It the comic project..
the plan is.. it will be publish on February, and the deadline is on December.. still long time to go i think.. but..

Im stuck..

yeah right now the plot is stuck..I've got to many ideas, but I dont have enough pages, and my brain feel wanted to explode thinking which ideas should I take to make this comic perfect.. =_=;

so I ended up browsing trough website.. and writing blog.. liek somehow it will help me decide...

baaa..baaaaa....baaaaaaa....(crying like a stupid sheep lost in the dessert)

somehow being comic artist is hard... but I know deep down I enjoy it..
I dont have any reason to complain actually..
but right now.. i think I should.. because Im scared this brain of mine.. really2 going to explode..
