My Late Master

I made this at the early hour of dawn this morning, as a tribute to my very first mentor in drawing. Teguh Santosa (1942-2000) was one of the best Indonesian comic artists in his era.


I drew it using my Lamy Safari fountain pen (the best fountain pen I’ve ever used so far), combined with a cheap brush and Yamura ink. As you can see, it’s virtually unfinished, and I have no intention to finish it. Too much sadness in that drawing; his sadness of being forgotten by the younger generation. That’s why I don’t think I’ll be able to finish it.



Anyway, here’s to you, master Teguh Santosa. I will always be indebted to you…

  1. Very good 🙂

  2. Very-very-very cool!
    Just ‘WOW’!

  3. Truly a fine tribute. It IS finished as far as I’m concerned.

  4. This is a great tribute.

  5. Indicado:)

    Saúde, paz e sucesso!

  6. Teguh Santosa was unfamiliar for me, until I found his graphic novel compilation, ” The Pandawa” story, that’s cool, super cool with those quality. I’ve heard that Teguh became animator for Marvel too?

    Most of his character has an indo-european anatomy appearance, or aryan face, that’s my personal opinion though.

    Great guy indeed 🙂

  7. I would say it is “finished” because it is at its reflective perfection of your emotions towards your mentor. Absolutely stunning piece, truly. Your respect, admiration and significant connection with this man shines through brilliantly!
