As the MCO started roughly a month ago, our source of income is greatly jeopardized. Entrepreneurs and businesses have to put their operations to a halt. Putting them in a rather tough spot. No one is spared, not even this artist who makes a living out of selling her artworks and merchandise.
MCO Themed Everyday Items
However, it didn’t stop Izzati Suza from being productive. That said, being in quarantine gave her a lot of time to let her imagination runs wild. You can see all of her hard work blooming on her social media accounts. Who would’ve thought that her innovative ideas of turning Malaysians everyday items into MCO themed designs were highly accepted and celebrated among the netizens.

According to her interview with mStar, Izzati Suza said that the ideas came to her when she wanted to draw something unique and suitable to the current situation
“Before, I have been designing ‘Sampul Raya’ since last year.” 2020 should be her second year to create Raya themed envelopes. But as the situation goes, the vibe is different this year. “Coincidently, at that time, the nation was at war specifically because of the viral gardenia bread issues. So I was inspired to infuse the bread design with a message,”
Available With 5 Preppy Designs
“I didn’t expect it to explode on Twitter. People are eager to buy my designs because they loved it.” Available with 5 unique designs. Now you can get gardenia bread, lollipop, layered pandan cake, and tiger balm envelopes. It was so popular that people are willing to pre-order the merchandise.
Started Without Art Backgrounds
“I didn’t graduate in arts, but I did study architecture designing for two years. I had to stop halfway because my father got into an accident in 2015.” It was then that her art career started. Suza sold stickers, and artworks while taking care of her sick father.” However, he passed away two years after.”
This talented artist now has her own studio in Ayer Keroh, Melaka. Stepping into it, you will witness rows upon rows of merchandise. Including phone cases, tote bags, t-shirts, fridge magnets, notebooks, and more. Blessing each item with her handiwork. Her attractive art style even given her chances to collaborate with different companies. What do you think of the designs? Will you buy them for Raya? Share with us in the comment section below!
