  • Continuing my #36daysoftype with this messy Q 🙈 Had to take a picture under a night lamp but thanks to @googlesnapseed, the editing is easy peasy 😍 (not sponsored). .
.
So, I'm 4 days late in the challenge, probably gonna have lots of posts soon (oh, hello, Monday) 😬 But first, sleep 😴

  • Today we are celebrating Kartini Day here in Indonesia. I’m very honored when @kaligrafina and @lettertalks asked me to contribute to the little campaign they are doing to celebrate this day, called #PerempuanDalamAksara (Women in Letters).
.
.
R.A. Kartini is an Indonesian Heroine from Java Island, who fought for women’s education and rights. This quote that I chose is taken from her letters, and translated as: “The girl whose mind has been educated, whose perspective has been widen, will no longer able to live in her ancestor’s world.”
.
.
I chose this quote as I think, even as of now, 115 years after Kartini’s death, many women in Indonesia still receive a lot of pressure and boundaries, in the name of culture. I’m talking about patriarchy, the freedom to decide for their own body, and such. Not only in Indonesia, but I know much of these are still happening around the world too. Therefore, not only celebrating this day with Indonesian women, I would also love to celebrate the day with women of the world.
.
.
You can check out @kaligrafina page during today and tomorrow, as they will share artwork from 7 Indonesian female letterer (including this by yours truly). Selamat Hari Kartini!

  • (Not sponsored) | P for for @perspectivepodcast! My fav podcast! Don't you know that @prspctv_cllctv gonna shower you with free resources about lettering hustle soon? Gotta check em out, you guys!
.

Anyway,  I think I kinda mess up my engagement this past few days with too many posts? 😂 The more reason to dig up The Perspective Podcast's resource! .
.
But no worries about engagement now. I'm liking how my feed has become so consistent with the challenge 😍 And also, just keep remembering that we are #morethannumbers, rite? 😉 Do you feel the same about your grid? Are you doing 36 days of Type challenge too? How is it going with you so far? Let's talk in the comment 😊

  • Today is the biggest election day in Indonesia. Not only voting for our President for the next five years, we're also voting for Members of Parliament. Big day for Indonesia. I voted. And I encourage other Indonesians here to vote as well. Don't let your voice be unused, because your voice matters!
