Basking in the sun!

Took this photograph around 545am (yes, i know its very early morning). Loved the colours which sun threw on the wall and hence the glorified alphabets. Wish you all very warm, fresh and bright good morning!

Micro Experiments!

Letters look beautiful in any angle & dimension. Here are some of the micro views of few alphabets. It could be nice sets of paintings on wall.

Enlarged micro views: ink and textures!

New Chapter

The new, fresh n exciting phase of my life is just going to begin after few days!
One week to go...then I won't be single anymore.
Yeah! I am getting married to my girlfriend in Mumbai next week!
It will be short & sweet Maharashtrian wedding, but yes with typical Indian wedding touch!

This post is not about my goodbye to bachelorhood but about the invite which I have designed!
Here are some glimpses of those cards:
There are two versions: Marathi (my mother tongue) and English


Here its English one...

So will be in front of my laptop after a while, I will definitely get back to my this love soon!

Koshish!

This is another request/comment from Meenakshi who runs a NGO called Goonj in Delhi. She wanted someone to write Harivansh Rai Bachchan's very very inspiring poem for her daughter and she found that someone on arth n nitya blog!
I thoroughly enjoyed writing this motivating poem. As you can see flow of inks spontaneously forming meanings on paper.







Here its a full preview


Gist of poem (non Hindi readers):
Never give up. Keep trying. Failure is a challenge one has to face and do not stop trying to succeed. Only those who try, succeed. Nicely blended with metaphors of ants, boat men, etc.

Meaningful Meaningless!

Sometimes, something comes out really interesting when you work without any context, meanings, ...briefs! See, what I have found again! These 'randoms' were made during our lectures, while thinking in library, while sketching for project but ended up doing something like these:

Ink bottle cap's hairdo

I love cartridge paper, more older the best result!

PS: Don't even bother to read what its written :)

Cloth Letters

I was cleaning my cupboard and found pile of art card glossy sheets. Bit damped, yellowed A2/A1 big sheets were peeping from folder & telling me 'use-us-now-LAZY!!
Here I used a cloth (cotton gamcha kind of rag which is rough in nature) as brush and quite happy with its unexpected awesome results.
A to Z family! Can become a font...

'd' stroke; how each letter ends!

Liked the thickness & texture it creates.

Stunning blot at the end of 'w'

...and that's the 'brush'

Its quite amazing to see the play between 2 different materials where one is rough but flexible and second is smooth & glossy.
Its like ice skate dancing! It will be cool to make them moving.
