E D I TOR’S NOTE

Sometimes in life, looking back is the best thing to do when we need to be reminded of how far have we become. In welcoming the new year of 2018, I’d like to sincerely thank all of you for your love and supports. It gives me the greatest motivation to keep on progressing and developing new ideas for you all. With this current issue, we’d like for every single one of you to relive the nineties, from the most amazing memories to the utmost ambiguous. Let’s get back to the moment where we used to play snakes on our Nokia phones, waking up extra early to watch what trouble Go-Ku have with collecting the dragon-balls, or simply expressing our teenage angst with Nirvana and strut like it aint anyone’s business with Britney. I hope that by walking through the memory lanes, we are reminded on how grateful we should be for the experiences we have gained over the years. It’s a new year, new resolutions, new attitude and new love to spread. Bring back your 90s memories on our instagram @jandwee.journal

K A L E ID OSC OP E

Our childhood wouldn’t be complete without the anticipation of new episodes of our favorite TV series such as Bidadari, where it teaches young girls that amidst all kinds of evil, kindness will win. With the creepy yet funny Tuyul & Mbak Yul, emphasizing the Indonesia’s supersticious in how there are always other creatures living in some coridor somewhere, yet they might not all be bad. Keluarga Cemara where we learned that material wealth could dissapear anytime yet the love of family remains through whatever hardships, and who could forget Wiro Sableng. A rather twisted personality for a hero yet Wiro Sableng never fails to save the day with his sincere act of kindness to save those in needs.

Who could forget our excitement whenever Sunday approaches. How many of you will wake up in the morning, no matter what, to catch the latest episode of Dragon Ball, Detective Conan, Doraemon, Sailormoon and a lot of cartoons that were so captivated and endearing, an exceptional different to the more advanced Marvel universe of the 2017. We were entertained by the swiftness of powerpuff girls, yet we cant get enough of the evil laughter of Mojojojo.

10


As for all the good things we currently take advantage of, video games was much of a a privilege back then. Console was not accesicble to many, so we have to settle with those snake games we begged our parents to play on their phones, and to some of us who got lucky, they’ll get to enjoy the joy of nintendo. Playing Sonic Mania, saving the princess in Super Mario and trying not to get the Pepsi Man to fell off on the road. While the boys were busy with their games, some girls will opt for a colorful and fashionable choice of walkman to play their favorite NSYNC songs, pink G-Shock watch and to simply drop a message on their pager, keeping communication clean, sweet and not as intrusive as what we have today.

The way you dress will always be the way you live, as perceptions are everything. If you were the rebels in the 90s, then be sure to weaponize yourself with lots of leather and checkered outfits. Pair it up with combat boots, and you’ll definitely the person nobody would want to mess with, as the 90s were all about teenage rebellion and standing out from the crowd of many florals and neons, as remnants of the 80s.

We were a lot more creative when it comes to creating our very own fun. From a simple yoyo that lights up any mood, and blowing up baloons just because it was liberating to see its fly away. Let’s not forget the snacks that accompanied us through different stages of puberty. From ‘Anak Mas’ to kerupuk 88 that has currently become a treasure hunt as it is no longer available at our nearest convenience store.

12


Looking back, there’s always a particular tune that defines an era. In Indonesia, we were so spoiled yet protected over innocent tunes that simply speak of kindness on a daily basis, sang by Joshua, Trio KwekKwek, which tells the story of how fun it is to splash water with your friends.

The purpose and functions of art varies, and to generalize every art pieces to merely commercial commodity somehow puts us backward when we are suppose to be one of the most technologically advanced and informative generations. With fine art, it was to document the history, from the greatest revolutions to the downfall of an empire, all characters and events that transpires was beautifully painted by the likes of William Hoghart, Diego Riviera, and to the provocative depictions of hell through Dante’s Inferno that trippled church’s mass participants. Then comes the modern art where Warhol’s can of soup adds more splashes to the art world, all with the intention to define an era of their own, to say the unspeakable, to feel the invisible, as we attempt to make our feelings tangible.

The purpose and functions of art varies, and to generalize every art pieces to merely commercial commodity somehow puts us backward when we are suppose to be one of the most technologically advanced and informative generations

Back when books were bibles and radio was king, artist created art to disturb the norms, to stir the society that has taken advantage of solemn peace. But have the millenials lost touch with the true core of art? ‘You see, murals on the street, around the world, was initially a radical political movement. The city had become too rigid, therefore to instill a deeper noise that can provoke people, they decorate the city with vivid colors, stories that murals can serve. They were trying to bring art to the commoners, as art was not accesible for all, it was seen more as a privilege for the upper classes. However not all city has the same backstory. Our city of Medan, has always been a chaotic, from the infrastructure to the mentality of its people, and I personally feel that adding murals or graffiti around the city simply adds more unnecessary noises that we simply don’t need. The city needs to find its own voice first, they need to find peace and calm before it is ready to be disturbed. Our city is still not in the right order and trying to beautify the street without actually having a syncronized message and purpose will not compliment the artworks nor the city.’ ‘We need to pave the way for our art to translate, and it can’t simply be forced out of commercial needs. I feel like the current generations are moving so rapidly sometimes they didn’t build a strong foundations to equip themselves for a potential turbulences. Everyone now wants to be the first of something, often times ignoring the longevity and the quality of the body-works. While there is nothing wrong in wanting to be fast. But I don’t think a lot of the younger generations stops and think how would they handle all of these speed. We all like fast cars and getting rich fast. But once you have reach the top fast, what then, what will you do and become once those goals are crystalized? If you aren’t mentally ready to face all of the adversity, you will simply be eaten by the currents, that’s why I believe to really take the time to find our purpose. The youth thesedays are very privileged as their parents paved the hard path to success, so now they have more choices. Don’t be swayed by all of the choices but know that you need to be aware of the struggles to create something meaningful. You can’t skip steps and expect stardom. Everything has its own place and time’.

Felix Lim World of comics, world of courage

Our world is filled with billions of humans, each individual born unique yet similar. Every single one of us lives with the pursue of happiness, satisfaction and purpose. With that, every day we breathe with oxygen, hopes and dreams that keeps us alive. Not everyone is as lucky as some, to be sure of what their true calling in the world, and sometimes we settle for what seems to be the right choice. Despite it all, we never stop hoping for the best, as it has become a default system to avoid skepticism. Felix Lim, a beloved husband and father, and a dedicated illustrator whose dreams are finally crystalized when drawing can finally be set as a solid career choice. ‘I believe we were all born with this strong inclination to do certain things. To me, it has always been drawing, I love creating new things because feeling bored is simply not a choice to me, and as an illustrator, we tend to be a lot more savvy because there’s a lot of opportunities to experiment once the digital sketches are up. On the contrary of the typically conservative parents, I was lucky that my mother saw my interest in drawing. It wasn’t frowned upon, I will instead be given a lot of comics, and that is how my aesthetics came from. It was the time when Medan was bombarded with imported comics. I will copy the drawings and from there I will immerse myself in my own world of comic’. Nowadays, the art world constantly seeks references from the past, merging in to the modern world yet somehow holding on to the warmth of the history that perhaps gives them the certainty of success. Artist replicate, great artist replicates wit no trace of similarities, leaving only their stamp of legacy. The most sought after era is still the corky alleway of the 90s, with comic artist trying to make it everywhere in the world, from DC comics, the world of Marvels and to our favorite of all, Manga.

‘Considering how there’s so many comics didn’t survive how trend evolves, we are still left with a lot of titles thriving. As an illustrator, it infused me with great joy when all of my hard work is paid off. The joy comes in different stages, you have to do the deeds before harvesting the seeds.Whatever I learned throught out my youth shapes me into the artist I am now. The joy of being an artist is the ability to express and showcase our emotions out in the public. When you can execute it well, it is such a fulfilling experiences, and I am grateful that it has now become my full time job. To draw everyday and be surrounded with colleagues of mine who gets it’. The universe of comic has always been enticing for those who seeks adventure in another world.

Heroes, villains on every pages was drawn with strokes of struggles before completion. Comic, just like other media form is power, with different moral messages that can influence millions of people to think in certain ways. When it comes to the artisti and the commerce side of comics, facts can get blurry to what are the intentions behind certain trend. ‘Trend to me, is led by people with great wealth who attempts to define an era by inserting themselves in the mass market. Art on the other hand is honesty and the beauty that lies beneath it all. When we are honest with ourselves and our art, we will have a sense of humility that grounds us, and lets us filters that matters the most.’

Some of the video was presented in Hokkien dialect known best to people of Medan, there’s a certain unity found in the same taste of humor, and Felix gave his audience just that.

Qintari Anindita The Benevolent soul of Psyce @qintariditha | Photographed by : @januardywijaya

Qintari, a young activist who started her career in a rather odd industry of modelling, where women were expected to remain in the status quo. Her mother thrust her into the spotlight when she was five years old simply for her to overcome her fear of socializing. Strutting herself on runways helps her money to pursue her passion outside of the modelling arena, while chasing after her degree. Known to many with her charm in public speaking, it was not a strange event watching Qintari dazzles in her own force fields. She was once a student ambassador volunteering at YOAM Childhood Cancer Foundation, and having the chance to visit Germany as representative at the 2015 youth summit, and it was those trips that inspired her to pursue psychology as a career choice. Presented with alternatives that she was not ready to let go, she continued her study while still juggling with her modelling jobs, after relentless nights of catwalk that puts everything in perspective. “I was told how I did not do as well as I could have and I realized then that my heart is simply not in modelling anymore. It’s time to focus and recentre my energy into my real purpose, and I left the next day. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. With all of the great endeavours she had going on, fun was not left out as growing up in the peak of late nineties brought a different set of colors to any soul. “I’m a 90s baby and I can see why we never stopped talking about it. We reminisce about pop culture and our childhood any chance we get. It was freaking fantastic. From our bright, artificially colored condiments, to the best television shows, you can’t deny that it was absolutely the best time to be a kid. We had fun even without the Internet, and the pressure of constantly showing it off on social media. We truly embrace and enjoyed the presence of each others and I think we have definitely been missing those.

“The parents of the 90s were also the complete opposites to the millennials. Where they had to succumb to conformity, the millennials questions the very core of it. With their idealistic views of the world, it can be challenging to be accepted by the norms yet the results of those ideals were often times the golden ticket to a flourishing life. Millennial parents are socially and politically engaged in an innovative ways. From the food that they feed their children, the stories they read them before bed, each decision is a moral conviction that affects how they parent”. Qintari is currently on progress in earning a master’s degree in psychology and a private trainer, and on her way to gain a psychologist license that will all help catapult her latest

Using her background in psychology, she hoped that the application will fill in the gap that future parents are looking for, as generations progresses, the methods of beings will also differ. “The baby boomers were all about ‘surviving’. Their needs were mostly about sustaining the tangible items. Financial and economical success, meaning more evidences of success that translates into happiness.

The year of the Rooster has made a deep mark in our life. Turbulences after turbulences was presented to us in the manner that we could never anticipate. We are proud that even through the bleakest of times, our team has shown strength and faith in their own creativity to push through. This year we also get to experiment with different style of photography that allows us to stray from the mundane concepts that helps us rejuvenate our creative juice. Working with Jaya Baru on their annual campaign capturing their latest collections with breezy Bandung as the backdrop, and Jakarta to give us the metropolitan kick that we all are thirsty for, the final artwork are included in their 2018 calendar, giving more reason to look forward to the new year. We were also excited that we get to make new exotic yet fuzzy friendly friends with Dog Kennel Star who specializes in the best dog breeding, photographing

All of the pictures will be displayed on their website, making it easier for all dog lovers to choose which lucky puppy will be their new buddy. Taking a delicious journey with Lisano Brownie with their corporate branding to challenge the marketing goals that are set to fulfill the cravings
