I hope you feel ASIK! while visiting my site...
And I hope you enjoy viewing my art as much as I do creating it!

ABOUT "ASIK"

I translate this word to mean: ENJOY. It seems that the word should be "ASYIK." But my Indonesian friends write "ASIK," so I follow their example.

ABOUT "TOKUKO"

I love to create graphics and illustrations. My favored mediums are acrylic (by hand), and Photoshop and Illustrator (by computer).
Here is how the Little Devil image was born:
My friends like to call me "Little devil". They say, if my tale stuck you, you would be taken with the lovable charm of a naughty child.

1995/NOV I was tempted to move to the north because I love snow.
My CD-rom called "TAM-TAM's CHRISTMAS" was sold. My pen-name was "TOCCO" (pronunced TOKKO) at that time. Now I have changed it to "TOKUKO" because I think "TOCCO" is pronounced "TOCCHO" in Indonesian.

1998/APR I don't like heat and bags... But I went on my first trip to Indonesia. I paid for this two weeks vacation with money earned from my illustrations. The trip was marvelous!!! CLICK!
