1. How did you get into graphic design / illustration?
I have been drawing ever scince I remember,I have got the walls of my house to prove that.I haven’t have had any formal training in art,so I mostly had to make do by learning from youtube videos. In 9th standard I got a job offer from tinkle(but they rejected me as I was too young). That really gave me a spark to take up art seriously and since then I have never looked back.
2. How would you best describe your style of artwork?
My artwork is more of the cartoony genre of art. I has become a mix of the various styles I have had in the past.
3. What is your design process, from where do you start your artwork?
I usually start by brainstorming for an idea. Then I start sketching this idea onto paper. In this stage I see that if the various aspects of the design are in co-ordination. After this I scan this sketch in my computer. After scanning I ink this sketch digitally and then colour it in photoshop. This entire process amounts to about 4 hours of work.
4. What tools do you use for your artwork?
I use regular pencils for sketching. If I’m inking traditionally I use brush pens or just normal brushes. For drawing digitally I use a wacom bamboo one small. The softwares that I use for digital art are mainly photoshop and manga studio 5.
5. What do you do when not working?
When I’m not working I’m usually studying,playing video games,reading graphic novels,or just….imagining.
6. How do you stay inspired?
I usually tend to stay inspired by looking at other peoples art,although I do have my own share of artist blocks.
7. Do you have any advice for young designers?
Gee guys,I’m the one who is young here( I’m 15..),anyways if I HAD to give to fellow designers it would be that don’t be scared (or lazy) to explore new mediums for your art.
8. What is the most fun part of being a designer?
Well,probably the most fun thing about being a freelance designer is that you get to work in your boxers!!
1 aspect of design you value the most?
1 font you use the most often?
I tend to letter my art myself,But if there is a time constraint I usually use ‘Dead Flower’.
1 design-related book you would recommend every budding designer?
Just refer as many ‘the art of …..’ books of animated movies as you can.
1 design magazine you can’t do without? online or offline
