The popular action-packed comic series soon became the inspiration of his fans and new generation of comic followers.

His other cartoons & artworks are ‘Kenen’, ‘Catman’, ‘Min and Jimi’, ‘Rocka Jr’ and drama-inspired comic series ‘B Major in D Minor’.

Why You Should Stick To Your Tribe With These Tribal Designs?

the tribe

come to my tribe, my child!

Which of this definition of tribe suit you?

A group comprising many families or clans?

Or a group of people who share same interest, culture, aspiration and identity?

Actually, the latter holds bigger impression in your mind. When we talk about tribe, people will visualize tribe like these; a group of people living in the hut, the man with his body painted with white stripes, running after the animal with a spear on his hand and other peculiar traits.

Yes, there are true. For very long time, men created the civilisation from a single place. When the community grew bigger, they moved to the other countries, continents and islands. They were grouped together, ate together, fought together, laughed together and looked after each other, in order for their survival.

So much so these scenes transcend to the modern living.

When the tribe gathers

It’s not uncommon when people with same hobby, lifestyle, interest flock together. Skaters go out skating with their kindred together. Concert goers have a good time enjoying the live performance from their favourite rock band. Hipsters flash their new iPhone custom case when they hang out together.

That’s the another interpretation of tribe.

The best thing of being together in your group is that you feel the sense of belonging. You enjoy channelling your energy to something you really love. You finally find your place in this world.

But how strong can you hold this connection? Have your own tribal mark.

Bring nature back to your urban life.

Every tribe has its own art. We call it tribal designs.

Their mark and identity can be seen until today. It was colourful, unique and trendy. Although they are gone in time, their art is still alive… in the new form.

The tribal collections

Place it at the back of your smartphone, and see the natural design that evokes a feeling of classic texture.

The tribal designs are not just trendy, but it gets you closer to your kind and. Mix and match these spectacular designs with your clothes too. You’ll find the fashion mixes well with your modern sensibilities.

And when you gather around for some tribal meeting with your friends and family, at least you know you have a good reason to stay remain with your ‘tribe’ for a long time to come.

How to be a showy person without being arrogant and cocky?

yes, it's time to show off

yes, it’s time to show off

You want to be different. You want people to notice you.

In order to do that, you have to step up from the ordinary lifestyle to diva-like status. You look up to Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian as your inspiration to jazz up your fashion appeal.

You flaunt beautiful clothes and ornaments when you go to party and ‘kenduri’. People compliment you. You are happy.

Deep inside of you, the self-pride pointer soars to all time high. It’s getting out of control when someone praise you; “You are just like that celebrity!”

Is loving to show off and seeking attention a bad thing?

Well, it’s not a right or wrong issue here. The point is that not everyone like showy people. Haters point out from that these people are just showing off their stuffs to someone else less superior. Disgusting and distracting.

But, there are other ways to solve this dilemma. And it doesn’t leave a bad taste in people’s mouth.

Show your skills.

If you good at creative work like writing, designing or maybe playing musical instruments, it’s time for you to shine. Let the world know your expertise by sharing your work via Facebook, Twitter and any social media sites. You might be making a big wave and receiving a financial windfall. Who knows?

Show how caring you are.

Sometime people need help at unexpected circumstances. They need a quick answer when experts frequently neglect their enquiries. Well, you know, the bureaucratic issue sort of thing.

Let say someone posts on the Facebook news feed that he needs the opinions about medical treatment at the hospital. As you had experienced with that treatment, as an example, you help him by answering his question. He might be thanking you for your advice. And sooner or later other people will seek your opinions too.

Show yourself so everyone else knows.

Love can be expressed in many forms. Some prefer giving gifts to their loved ones. Some write a poet. Some are willing to sacrifice on trivial matters.

But the truth is most people find it hard to show love. They can’t find the right way to make it happen.

Actually, by creating your own design and displaying your own creative art, it helps relieve your stress and make you feel better.

The truth about showing off is not about bringing up all stuffs you can show, but the feeling and emotion that portray who you really are; a socialite junkie or a self-control fashionista.
