How Many Astronauts?

Ada Berapa Astronot? How many Astronauts?
I've made this hand-painted furniture (drawer) in 1999.
In that years I've made a lots of furniture with cartoonal images I painted on it. I called this product as "Tangan Jahil" (hyperactive hand that always paint and draw everything and everytime). Small tables, small cabinets, stools, dinner chairs, etc. These cartoonal furniture I've proposed for Festival Kesenian Yogyakarta Art Market in1999. Most of all were sold out. I've had several fans, too. And many followers... (I don't mean that I'm an inventor, there are many great hand-painted artist before me, I mean followers in Festival Kesenian Yogyakarta, in FKY 2000 event). But since I've stopped to made these furniture, finally, I only have this drawer as a souvenir. As a rememberance. I'll never sell this.

Drawing: Kurt Cobain

From "my drawing compilation": Kurt Cobain
Colored pencil on hardpaper A4, 2005

His eccentric quotes:
"I won't eat anything green."
"I was looking for something a lot heavier, yet melodic at the same time. Something different from heavy metal, a different attitude."
"I've always had a problem with the average macho man - they've always been a threat to me."

Gandhi by Hand

Mohandas K Gandhi
(drawing pen on paper A4, 2009)
Read his famous quotes:

"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind."
"A religion that takes no account of practical affairs and does not help to solve them is no religion."
"Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well."

Mohandas K Gandhi
(pena pada kertas A4, 2009)
Baca kutipannya yang terkenal:
"Mata diganti mata hanya berakhir sampai membuat seluruh dunia buta."
"Sebuah agama yang tidak memperhitungkan urusan praktis dan tidak membantu untuk memecahkan masalah bukanlah agama."
"Selalu selaraskan pikiran dan kata dan perbuatan untuk satu tujuan. Selalu murnikan pikiran dan semuanya akan menjadi baik adanya."
