This is me ;p
my usual forehead, and i love purple(eye lashes and hair piece). My eyes are one closed and one peeking. But, there is tiny eyes on my forehead.. It means that, even i am sleeping or close my eyes. i still see my dream, see my future and see you.

the Tittle : "Mengintip" (peeking)
the concept, *i will read it in Bahasa Indonesia :
"Saya merindukan hutan, pepohonan dan rumput. Di sekitar saya hanya ada gedung-gedung bertingkat dan kendaraan motor yang membuat polusi. Saya bosan dengan rutinitas kota, dan ingin kesana (hutan)"

Me and my art work,
(*actually it is craft work , hehee)
