Pulau Seribu memory

This is an old one I rediscovered—a montage (non-digital) of cut-up bits of watercolour paintings—made when I was still living in Jakarta.

It was part of a set of illustrations for a World Wildlife Fund book, but was never actually used in the end.  


Terry Collins. For years, Terry was one of the tallest things you could find in Jakarta. I made this picture to celebrate his 30 years there. One morning, about a year later, I got an email saying Terry was gone. Then, later still, I heard they’d used this picture at his memorial service.
