at the rest stop

No, I have nothing new yet.
I had a crochet marathon in the last two month.
It's not normal, cause I knew I'm a lazy person
The weirdest thing was I become 10 times creative when I am busy.
It was the same like when I was in school, I made my comic story when I was supposed to study for exams.

After spending 8 hours holding mouse then 5 hours holding crochet hook everyday for the last 2 months, Now I'm taking a rest.
Not because I am sick or bored, I just remember that I had spending too long without holding a mouse pen.

How could I call my self an illustrator or designer or a comic stripper if I never make any illustrations or comic or designs? (of course beside my daily job)
I did designed all of my amigurumi, but it was not enough for me to be called as a designer, especially compared to my friends (who are also designers)
it seems like I'm having more fun making dolls than making picture, but no, I love to do both.

So after some short mouse-pen-session the last 4 days, hopefully I will start to take my crochet and yarns again tomorrow.

I made this post to praise my self and pat my own shoulder for being too diligent :D

Here come the Zpiderdzigh!

This blog name is zpiderdzigh, how could I never made a spider?
Continuing the "Gigi" series, I made the spider have some sharp tooth.
Of course you never saw the real spider teeth,
If you did, it must be the last thing you saw in this world.

What's the Gigi series, you asked?
I haven't found a better name for my "amigurumi with teeth"-series, so for now, lets called them as the Gigi series.
Gigi is "teeth" in Bahasa Indonesia.
as in the last post, there will be more of the gigi series :D

Komodo the Komodo Dragon

Since I'm making a post about Indonesian animal, here is my komodo-amigurumi.
Komodo is the largest living lizard, which are naturally living at Komodo island in Indonesia.
I made this komodo because that's the least thing I can do to support komodo to become one of the new 7 wonder (nature category).
Well, they said it would be better if I give vote to support the komodo at the new7wonder site,
BUT, shame on me, I can't make it.
I did go to the site but somehow I don't know how to vote it :(
I could just ask anybody else about it, but then I think it would be better (and forgivable) if I could get more people to vote on the komodo too.
So if you find this komodo amigurumi is cute or even if you don't think this komodo is cute at all and you just care about the komodo, please vote for the komodo.
anyway, you don't have to be Indonesian to vote on the Komodo ;)

I must admit I had a problem choosing the komodo's colors.
I'm so confuse, are they green or brown?
Please don't let the color stop you on giving vote on komodos.

I had troubles getting natural background because of the rainy season and I'm not a photoshopper so I manipulated all the pictures in this post.
So please don't praise me for the beautiful background of the picture, the credits belong to the great National Geography's photographers.

Harimau Sumatera (Sumatran Tiger)

It's 2010 and it's a it's a Tiger Year (based on Chinese zodiac)
I'm not Chinese, but I celebrate the new year by making Tiger amigurumi.
and since I'm Indonesian, I made the sketch based on the Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae).
The smallest yet special species of Tigers who are living at the largest island in Indonesia.
Gong Xi Fa Chai
May this tiger year become a prosperous year for all of us!
