This year has been great so far for me and I am happy that I am given a chance to write and illustrate in a spread column (2-page) in Gaya Travel magazine. I can never imagine, in a thousand years, that this will be happening.
It all started when a friend, Rayyan Haries, tweeted me about wanting to feature my artwork on a cover of a magazine; Gaya Travel. I later I set an appointment with him and met with the Creative Director, Sharm, and we discussed about what he had in mind for the magazine’s new look and feel. I showed some of my artworks online and out of spontaneity, Sharm offered me a spread in this magazine to write and draw. Like seriously?
Of course, I’ll be crazy not to accept it…so I said yes! Truly happy and I am all thankful to Rayyan and Gaya Travel team!
And my current blog header is to mark my first journey being a columnist.
Here’s a snapshot of my column.
