Q. How would you best describe your style of artwork?
51_Copy_ea3409e4-86ac-4537-a6ac-84d67d7224bf_1024x1024 (1)
A. Well, my style of artwork doesn’t limit to one form of art. I feel that expression shouldn’t be limited to just one form of art. But till now I have mostly done typography with graphics and cartoons.

 

Q. What tools do you use for your artwork?
50_Copy_66d44838-c7cf-40a8-9274-ceb5d1fc0081_1024x1024
A. Mostly Photoshop  and illustrator , and  if  I am  making my  art on a  paper  then markers, water soluble pencils.

 

Q. Personal view and market trend sometimes differ from each other. Do you use personal interpretation like the art that satisfy your senses or you like to do work according to the market trends?
49_Copy_c352a2da-18ed-4002-8348-23535468227c_1024x1024
A. Well, I started with the art that came from the heart but other people’s opinion mean a lot to me. A lot of times I take 6-7 people’s opinions before putting my work online. Saying that, I do this as my career, so I always keep the client’s and my colleague’s opinions in mind.

 

Q. What is your design process like; from where do you start your artwork?
48_Copy_e11e128c-78d5-465c-b15c-4d1d6d70be41_1024x1024
 A. Starting with a rough doodle on page, to a final sketch or draw with a wacom; I scan the sketch to trace digitally and then color and finalize it! Likewise when it’s not a digital art, I start with a doodle, final black marker sketch, color with pencil colors, and again highlight with black marker. Black markers bring out the details beautifully. I am in love with my microns.

 

Q. How did you get into graphic design / illustration?
47_Copy_7d67d4c6-d170-4931-90c3-fd8f9ac3661f_1024x1024
 A. I have been drawing since my childhood, the only hobby I never let go off; but I started making real work when I participated in graffiti competition in first year of my college and won. I started doing typography behind my books in middle of my lectures and during exams to blow off the steam. Finally when I graduated and took a year off to think I wanted to pursue art or I.T, I chose to pursue art and I have been constantly learning and making new work for past 6 months.

 

Q. What do you do when not working?
46_Copy_6bf1204a-6ac5-4390-b955-f643a82f3a1c_1024x1024
A. When not working, I run, work on D.I.Y projects and binge watch Suits, Friends over and over again and Abish Matthew’s videos, He is my favorite comedian.

 

Q. What keeps you inspired?
Web
A. Well, mostly it’s my favorite artists; Inkquisitive illustrations , R.K.Laxman and Alicia souza; the way they work, the kind of work they do and the kind of awesome life they lead keeps me inspired. And even though it’s lame and fictional I love the character of Harvey Specter. He is awesome.

 

Q. Do you remember the moment when the idea of becoming an artist struck you?
4_2_510a7ad8-d85c-440a-b1fd-600c0cc3b6d7_1024x1024
A. It was around the time of my birthday, I wasn’t getting anywhere with the decision to pursue art or I.T as a career and the stress was driving me crazy. There was no exact moment but a series of moments when I tested myself and thought what kind of life I wanted to lead. I knew I had the potential to pursue art, I just needed(still need) to develop it ; I knew it’s going to take time so I decided to suck it up and go at it no matter what anyone says.

 

Q. Do you have any advice for young designers?
3_2_8d1f2352-1acc-4b5c-a9bf-9eb0530a8b2a_1024x1024

1 aspect of design you value the most?
A. Make sure you are happy with the work you make, even though it’s not for you. I think the work you make should reflect your individuality, even though it’s for someone else.
