This issue of Tebabo is mainly a collection of doodle activism & personal thoughts.

Mostly thoughts on current political, some environmental, social, religion, sexuality & human rights issue in a quirky & not so quirky way some of them. Some of it are about advocating cycling via Massa Kritikal (Critical Mass) flyer designs & doodles. I hope you enjoy them as much as i do. Thanks~!! & keep doodling because its therapeutic. 11 Spetember 2010 xxx Shieko reto

i bought my local-built fixie bike for RM650 even when i was a kid it was already around now its making a come back in variety of colours & more simpler design. A couple of times I tried cycle to the city (KL), with all the potholes & the not bike-friendly road & environment, im getting used to it already, oh ya its name is TARDIS. If you like Dr.Who you probably know what it means. something like Time And Relative Dimension In Space or something, btw my pipe dream is hoping that KL will “improve its public transport” & “make KL a bike-friendly city”. eventhough i know most of the bikes will be stolen & sold to chop shop or melted back to its purest form by some people who needs to survive, but there’s still hope.

Backword Firstly or maybe Lastly this part was supposed to be the ‘Forward’, it ended up

long & winding as if i’m mumbling to myself. So i chuck it here, if you care to read, but YOU DON’T HAVE TO. Its just to balance out the ubuquitous visuals spreading across the layout of this zine. This issue of Tebabo is a collection of visuals i did mostly on what i thought on any current issues, local or international (global warming) & advocating on cycling. All are quite recent 2009, 2010. BEFORE THIS...(brief herstory) I’ve been working in local & international advertising agencies for 7 years (1998-2005), or should i say i wasted my life for 7 years. International ad agency especially is like ‘Institute of mind control & the dark art of pursuasion’. They’re one of the important parts in the capitalist machinery in order for the system to work. They work closely with banks & corporations. I got in the big agency because i needed to repay the car loan & saving for srs. In KL you have to have a car to travel at that time. The lrt & monorail weren’t around yet (not sure about this). I bet its one of our government conspiracy for the rakyat to own a car especially national car even though they were sold so expensive (but cheap compare to imported cars) so the people will always have to work to repay their car/house loan. & also have to keep sending them to the workshop for repairs. Is this their idea for generating economy? Most of my jobs early in advertising was drawing storyboards even after becoming art director i still draw storyboards. The only good thing i learn from there was how to think for ideas, brainstorming fast or conjure something creative out of the possibilities provided...and also i made some good friends (we quit the agency & lead a happier life). The agency i worked in have a set of mottos for us employees to follow & the 1st in the list that i remember till today was “ 1. Idea is god.” The boss told us remembering that is good enough among others in the list. I still remember the other one sounds like ‘the good is the enemy of the great. This will make you die trying to compete with your other colleagues who’s got better ideas. Advertising is the capitalist tool or monster that spew endless variation of dark spells for the people to keep buying stuff, they have research group that do analysis & most of who didn’t know about the structures of the system our world were built, they’re just the target markets of the advertising agencies, or rather like all kind of governments & other institutions around the world. And they’re also projecting beautiful pictures of corporate images. Besides polluting & vandalising the global landscape with ugly billboards & ads in news papers, prints & telivision for their master’s propaganda. I quit & started to do freelancing. (5 years this year!) The price for freedom. sometimes i got extremely broke i ate maggi mee & roti canai for weeks. I remember the reason i started to do freelancing was besides freedom from slavery was to study Japanese language. I just had this urge to do it. Then my Japanese teacher who’s now a good friend of mine introducing me to her friends who’s working in a media training center who’s advocating human rights & she also told me how her ancestors were oppressed by her government & were force to assimilate with the larger majority. This is the starting point i learn more about the condition of this country, the world, sexuality rights & also human rights. I’m not saying that i know all about it (overdosing on hormone pills make you forget things), but i can say i can see slightly clearly now besides years of listening to punkrock music!. Not all people born anarchist, freedom fighters or activists, i’m sure everybody have their own paths & this is roughly mine. Although its a bit late for me, somehow it makes me see things differently & also now at least my doodles,sketches or artwork have some significant meaning besides the self-wanking ones. Ok few more sentences to make this page seem full of words. Lately i have trouble writing or compose a story properly, so few more words is suffice for this paragraph, & soon it will fill up the whole page beautifully, yes Shit this is some serious ‘forward’/ backword I’m not even good with words. I hope you enjoy the quirky & not so quirky doodles, sketches & illustrations inside here. Thanks! 11 september 2010 xxx shiekoreto
