As far as i know... Klobot in malay means - KELONGSONG JAGUNG yang kering (dried corn leaves)
Actually, Klobot is a combination of ideas between me & my girlfriend, Kam in doing & creating our artworks in our own ways, for people to recognized us. So, why on earth we choose dried corn leaves as our name? first of all, we think that Klobot is a catchy and unique name. Some says it very javanese but hey..it's rare and easy to remember aite. NO, we are not gonna go soo conceptual about our name - Klobot. Hehe ;p
Who and what is the Klobot?
Klobot is an original and fresh idea from two people with different personality and background. Hami (Hamifaizal Mohsin) is an animator/ illustrator while Kam (Kamariah Jasmani) is an interior designer. Both of us from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Putting ideas together, blending and mixing it to complement each other work is really cracking our head off - but it is fun and challenging though.
Key figures in Malaysia's burgeoning young art & design scene for two & a half years now, we have been credited with producing some vivid hand drawn illustrations on t-shirts and tote bags. Influenced and inspired by great artists, old comics, televisions and hectic environment, we began doodling and creating characters.We love anything to do with paintings, illustrations, graphic and animation. Klobot believe in the hardwork that goes into producing art and design, and want to travel around the world showcasing our work. We also want nothing more to be appreciated and respected as artists & designers in the field.
In 2008, I was working on CJ the DJ, an animation series from Australia. That time I worked in an animation studio in Kuala Lumpur called Vision Animation (a.k.a Fatlizard), & have lots of work & got stressed out, so then come out with this wallpaper on my PC, done by Toon Boom :)
These are my old artwork back on 2006-2008, when I'm still working at Animatrix Animation Studio, as a Background Artist Leader. This square-headed icon guy created as myself, expressing myself struggle through tough days back then in animation industry in Malaysia, hehe, enjoy! :)
I'm Hami; a freelance graphic designer open to contract and part time employment. Being a design geek, my passion is creating unique graphic designs, illustrations, and art from my original artwork.
Previously known as Dr.Frix, I was once a family member of the Bangkit Artgroup. After almost 3 years, I'm backing off from the group and wanna give hundred percent focus in my animation career. But an artist still an artist ( heh..!) I'm still wanna cari duit by selling my own artworks. I'm doing graphic, multimedia, illustration, animation and many more..you name it...insyaallah I can do it ;p
I am also an artist in many other medias, being a traditional artist as well as digital artist. Currently, I'm working full-time in an animation studio called, Inspidea Sdn. Bhd in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Thank you for visiting my portfolio website showcasing most of my works; from manual to digital illustrations, graphic designs, flash animations etc.
