Jakarta street drawing—print

A print of my Jakarta street drawing at 57 x 9 inches on its way to Feny in Portland. Thank you Feny.

This is a print of a long (83 x 12 inches) pen & ink drawing I made in 1998 for a book about Jakarta, but which was never used in the end. Drawn with a Rotring Isograph if you remember them. Great pens. If you’re into pens.

Students in Jakarta

Drawing of some of my students at EEP in Jakarta, where I pretended to be an English teacher for five years. This one is drawn in ink, pencil, colour pencil, dry brush, charcoal and ballpoint pen.

Drawing of Blok M, Jakarta

Drawing of Blok M from a window at Hotel Falatehan. “It’s no oil painting” as my friend Ian would say. It really isn’t. It’s brutally ugly but I still love it. I worked here for three years in the 90s, and my son was born there.

If you’d like to hear how Blok M sounds, you can listen here.
