Intellectual Disscussion


Actually, I should post this as soon as possible. Here are the latest pix after an intellectual discussion at Kuala Lumpur Gallery. This is Mr. David Robert Osbourne. He is one of the external assessors from Hong Kong. How I wish that he would spend more time with us and tell his experience.


Bapak and Ibu Priyanto. One of the most influential politician cartoonists in Indonesia. When Bapak Priyanto showed the power point presentation on ITB (Institut Teknologi Bandung), I do envy the art school’s syllabus. It’s a bit like MMU because they learn some subjects (such as communication writing in animation, story telling in comics,) which are not been taught in my uni. Hopefully UiTM would improvise the syllabus someday, too.



Menyibuk dalam group B. Hehehe… Recognize the man in the middle? He’s Dr. Ruslan-The one that I admired the most among all of other lecturers. He got the charisma, knowledge, power, and yet he speaks divine English. He’s my academician idol besides Dato’ Sharif (a living legend persona in advertising field) and Mr. Fadly (like father like son). My batch had an intellectual discussion with them. Seeing the three of them in front of me makes me feel educated and I wanted to like them someday.

Deviantart Account

Types of Child Abuse


Ugly Duckling


Katak Bawah Tempurung


The Little Red Riding Hood

(There's more in my deviantart account, but mostly gives nasty comments. Hahaha)

I’ve just created my new deviant art account. I have deleted my previous account because someone accidentally humiliates me in that blog. Hahaha… So, my new deviant art URL is ida-mandarin.deviantart.com.

So, these are my latest artworks. These items are for my final semesters project – GED 664 (Research Major II). My majoring is Advertising, however, some of the lecturers get confused with what I did. It looks more like illustration aite?

Can you simply understand the message delivered at a glance? My client is WAO Women’s Aid Organization-It’s a preventing child abuse campaign, and I’m using local and Western fables and fairytales as a metaphor. Some say it’s difficult to understand, but as for me, for those who did not understand are the ones who didn’t read much. Am I right? (Trivia: Malaysians only read 2 books a year)

Furthermore, one of my lecturers told me that it’s hard for children to understand the storytelling by using metaphors. Really? But I just don’t care what all the young lecturers said. Hahaha...

Ramadhan is Coming & I Miss China So Bad!
