I Just Murdered The Alphabet
Character 3

Third character I drew for the I Just Murdered The Alphabet solo art show

If you like hand drawn fonts, then you have to love my I Just Murdered The Alphabet art project.
I’ve spent about 5 to 6 months drawings those font by hand.
I was locked in a room, no parties, no television, no time for gossips and friends.
Just me, my girlfriend, a lot of silver pens, kilos of coffee and tons of motivation.
check the complete solo art exhibition.

UPDATE: You can now buy this original artwork here.

But I also know that you’ve done it before.
Come on, don’t be shy…

I act like I’m never sober
KANO

You see me and you think that I’m drunk.
I see you and think that I would like to be drunk.
I’m joking, I don’t drink liquors.
I’m too busy working on my art…

How can shit be so easy
EMINEM

I make this art look easy.
Art looks easy if you work 10 hours a day every day of your life.
Sometimes I meet artists who think that they can become successful by working one hour here and there.
I wish them good luck. Like any professional activity, art requires dedication.
You have to be committed to what you do, so people can feel your passion and start to like your art.
Ater a lot of practice, your skills make your art look easier than it really is.
Then people tell you how lucky you are to live the life you chose. I tell them they could do it to.
You just have to work a lot, and turn off your TV.

I Just Murdered The Alphabet

Handmade drawing I did for my solo art show at Sergeant Paper gallery in 2012

This artwork is a new character I drew by hand for my new series and my next exhibition.
For this project I filled every artwork with some of the best hip-hop quotes ever.
Every character is unique and is part of an imaginary gang I call the Société Des Griffeurs.

Medium used: Hand-drawn with silver ink pens on 160g acid free art paper.

HANDSOME BOY MODELING SCHOOL

Some people look at the characters I draw and they say that I am inspired by japanese folklore.
Other people say that I must be inspired by the indonesian culture.
Other say that this is a modern take on african tribal art.
I tell them it’s Mega.
My characters are simply gorgeous.

JUELZ SANTANA

When I tell people that I based my studio in Bali, Indonesia, they always tell me about how lucky I am.
Coconut juices on the beach. Great surf. Magic mushrooms. Tight bikinis dancing in the front of colorful sunsets… They obviously talk about another reality.
I prepared this series by locking myself in a room. I am drawing everyday from the moment I woke up until it is late enough to join my girlfriend in bed.
I don’t have time to meet my friends, to do parties, watch TV, or anything else. All I care about is my art, and I intend to stay focus until I’m on the top of the world.
“Sir, another coconut juice please.” Just kidding…
Me and my characters are in a mood to fight.

J DILLA

Today I woke up with a lot of emails I need to reply to.
Interview requests from magazines, blogs who tell me about a review they just posted, collaborations requests, and more. You name it.
I’m always hungry for more, and love to read your feedbacks, so don’t hesitate to drop me an email when you feel like to.
On another hand, I recently started to collaborate with Lost At E Minor. They asked me to post reviews about stuffs I like. So if you produce amazing and inspiring artworks, feel free to contact me.
Talk soon.
Have a Mega day.

Brain dead flow
LIL WAYNE

My brain is dead.
My hands are well alive.
I use them every day to produce inspiring artworks and slick drawings.
At least I try to.
I hope that you enjoy my productions and feel inspired by my fonts experiments.

KILLAH PRIEST

Read books, create art, write books, stop watching TV, do more drawings: Be Mega.
As for the religious aspect of this statement, you have to understand that I live in Indonesia, which is the biggest muslim country in the world. I grew up a christian country, and to be more specific I’m based on a hindu island.
For me, religion is about tolerance, living together in mutual respect, and accepting one’s belief.

In the form of the naked truth.
I showed this artwork to @VAKILL on his twitter, and the man himself said “dope”.
I couldn’t have said it better ;)

CURREN$Y

Have you ever watch Messy playing soccer?
Have you ever heard Otis Redding singing soul?
Have you ever seen Mike Tyson boxing?
What’s the common point between all those great artists?
They make what they do look easy.
I am not a star and I don’t pretend anything. I just do my best.
Do you think what I do is easy?
Hum… Then try to do it.

JUELZ SANTANA

The Société Des Griffeurs is the name of the characters you can see in my artworks.
The masked people I draw are part of an imaginary gang.
They live in the jungle, far from the Western rules and societies.
They’re free.
It feels really good.

CLIPSE

I’m not a thug but you can call me a warrior.
I fight everyday of my life to produce more artworks and to stay independent.
I could easily go back to art direction if I wanted to.
But for the moment I like to work freelance and I want to stay free.
