What’s up with the name?

Yes, it’s a peculiar choice to name one’s child, but frankly I have no control over that matter. My full name is Art Blanc Pattipeiluhu.

I’m a designer, mediocre illustrator, and an “avid technophile”—an overly fancy made up term for geek—born in Bandung, Indonesia the beautiful archipelago on Earth’s warm equator belt. I graduated from Maranatha Christian University majored in Visual Communication Design. I’m still trying to learn calligraphy, with pen, ink, paper, and lots of trial & error. I may have consumed enough caffeine to power a city, but I’m not by any means a coffee-snob. I’m still trying to connect the dots, in an effort to make sense out of this world.
