Filosofi Turangga

Bagi manusia modern, kendaraan baik yang bermotor ataupun tidak (mobil, sepeda, sepeda motor, kapal, pesawat terbang) bukan hanya berfungsi sebagai alat transportasi, tetapi juga melambangkan status bahkan pencapaian prestasi. Dalam filosofi Jawa, kendaraan ini dilambangkan dengan Turangga. Syahdan ada lima syarat yang harus dimiliki oleh seorang Kesatria Jawa : wisma, wanita, turangga, kukila dan curiga. Atau dalam bahasa Indonesia artinya: WISMA, rumah; WANITA, wanita; TURANGGA, kuda. KUKILA, burung; CURIGA, keris.

Inktober 2016 from my perspective

Today is November 6, 2016, and it’s been a week after I am finished “inktober2016” event. For you who don’t know about inktober or if you want to know more about “inktober”, please visit this link: www.inktober.com

This event is started by Jake Parker (mrjakeparker.com) and open for everyone to join. Anybody can participate and it’s free. Not only artist, painter, designer or anyone that draw a lot in their everyday life. For a month we asked to draw using ink (it can be a fountain pen, pen, marker), minimal one drawing in one day. That’s why it called “inktober”. You can draw anything. Yes, anything. You can draw people, animal, house, car, pets, objects, character, superhero, airplane, your imagination, etc. If you have no idea what you should draw that day, the initiator of “inktober” has some keyword or theme that you can follow (please check the official Inktober2016 prompt list below). If you enjoy making a digital drawing (using tablet or software), you may join too.
