To me,

Let me ask you a question. Does it really feel outstanding to be mediocre?  Like you have to have an opinion or a favorite TV show just because everyone else does. Is it that lovely to be a part of the herd? What if you step on the other side?

Oh! Don’t judge me. I’m just as tired as someone looking for something creative to keep me hooked online. I don’t need socializing; I can very well do that when I’m not looking for a creative rush. It just hit me our virtual space lacks creativity. We are a bunch of horses running in the same carved street over and over and over again. For a change I want to be a Unicorn.

Okay, I know you’ll probably think of something or a website where you get to decorate a blank space with some quote you overheard in a movie? Or something your favorite character on your favorite TV show said in the season finale. Trust me that level of interesting is passé. And also quoting Rumi and Ernest Hemingway, well good for them they are heartily remembered but what about you?

I am looking for a self expressing platform where I get to be me. Blog? Twitter? Facebook? Trust me these places are too crowded to lend a fresh perspective. Once in a while you might, I don’t deny that but well really like always? I hardly doubt.

So as cheesy as it might sound I want to be my own Rumi. I want to creatively paint a wall full of my quotes and god knows why I want to sell it too. I know a lot of people speak the same words, and infact hey are far more talented than I am.

With this thought imagine a virtual space where you can paint your own words or something meaningful your best friend or your mother said and make it into a piece of art. That’s what I’m really talking about. Kind of refreshing and new to even think of. I bet you’d feel too much to ask for, but is it too much to stand out from the crowd.

Too early for me to think about standing out? I don’t think so. I don’t want to crawl where the rest of the planet is brisk walking. Clearly I don’t want to stay back. I want to be creatively empowered and French kiss that kind of feeling right in the face. So Humans, I know you want to express, design and play with words and show off your love for yourself. And I’m waiting for that moment to strike me too.

I want to sit one day painting my own posters and inspiring someone else somewhere and vice versa. Well I can sincerely hope that kind of virtual space hits real soon. Till then we can all write letters to our future self like this one and read it some time when you are looking for something.

P.S.  Can you really wait, to make that poster yours?

From,

Me (Of course)

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.

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.
