Where you born? Where did you grow up?
I was born and grew up in Gombong, Middle Java, Indonesia.
Had you gone under any art training, school or academy?
Well, I didn’t pass any art school or art academy. I learned my skill on the ‘street’, from jobs and commissions, and lot of references created by marvelous artists.
How long have you been working professionally in comics?
5 years until now. Whew, it’s been that long, I never counted.. lolz.
What things — both in art and otherwise — have you worked on, besides comics? Are comics a full-time gig for you or part-time?
Yes, comic is my full time job right now. I have nothing else I can do beside this one, and haven’t thought to look for another job.
How did you settle on the style(s) you’re currently using? If you have multiple styles how did you develop them?
I love my style, and yes I can do many style involving colors. But let’s say it’s all depending on the client 🙂

they’ve been very very supporting
What projects do you hope to work on in the future?
I haven’t think of that, but coloring pages for Marvel sounds great 😀
What is the interest in comics where you live? Do friends and neighbors know you draw comics for a living? How do they react?
in my countries? Not too good. The comic industries were down since 1970s. Only few people and friends know that I do comics for living. Their reacts? Well, mostly: Hey! How can you do THAT? — lolz
