Dear Kind Readers,

With all regrets, due to work deadlines I will be on hiatus for quite some time.

Thank you so much to all the Readers for your support and for reading Maaf.
Many thanks to everyone who has been very generously giving information and helping me with research on Maaf.

I will continue on Maaf and other works once my work deadlines has been passed. Hopefully on Nov or Dec.

Best Regards,


Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art

Why hello there :)

First of all, I want to say that I absolutely admire your art!
Especially your comic Maaf. I just started and I really enjoy reading it.

I hope you don't mind me asking: Spreek jij Nederlands? Ik denk er al heel een tijdje over na en ik kom er gewoon niet achter. Wat betekent "Maaf"? Heb je die naam zelf bedacht?
-> Can you speak Dutch? I've been thinking about it for quite a while now and I just can't figure it out. What does Maaf mean? Is it made-up?
I also wrote down the English translation, ' know. I don't know if you can read Dutch (no offense)

Please update!! I really like the story, btw, can you draw some more about Malaysia's history? I'm from Malaysia and I have learned my country's history during History class, but it will be better and more fun in a comic way XD

P/S: It's quite easy to understand too XDD

Berhubungan dengan 2 link terakhir, saya ingin kasih info soal fashion orang Eropa di Indonesia ketika ada Raffles. Mungkin saya sudah pernah kasih tahu tp ya sudahlah. Waktu itu karena kurangnya jumlah wanita Eropa, pria Eropa terpaksa menikah orang lokal. Ketika Raffles dan istri bertemu mereka di sebuah pesta, mereka membandingkan para istri Eropa dan lokal. Wanita Indonesia berpakaian lebih simple (kebaya dan rambut diminyaki) sementara wanita Eropa memakai corset, gaun dgn rok gede, tataan rambut tinggi, gloves, dll. Tapi dari sifat, wanita Indonesia lebih sering diarahkan suami mereka dan dicap 'bodoh'

sekalian deh, kalo dilihat dr kronologi, trend fashion Inggris zaman dulu gini:
1860 - full circle crinoline dan lengan lebar
1870 - semi circle crinoline
1880 - bustle style dan lengan ketat
1890 - bell skirt dan leg of mutton sleeves

soal corset, krn mahal (dr tulang ikan paus) biasanya takyat jelata bkn sendiri, pola dpt dr majalah. Kalo rajin, sampe jahit hias sendiri.
