Just when you are not looking.

You end up finding good stuff, just when you are not looking for it. I found a blog of an artist just when I wasn't expecting to update my own.
But I have to put this here.

Walrustoons









Amazing additions of toons in to existing photographs and a very definite illustration style in all of his cartoons. Playing out the "south Indian" factor really well, the artist knows what he wants to show.
Would definitely be following this one. :)

Amazing Angle

People do amazing things. The cliche - is to look at it with the right angle!

I do not know the original creator of this one so don't know whom to give credit too. If anyone knows anything about this please enlighten me.















In a happy co-incidence. I found this image browsing (again Facebook). Which I thought made a good connection with the one above and also reinforces my statement.

Saturday morning

On a lazy Saturday morning, I m posting the first of many more assignments that I m going to post.
This is a typography assignment, where we were supposed to design a book cover for 'The Professor and the Madman' - Simon Winchester.

It is a story about a guy in an asylum who helped compile the Oxford English Dictionary by writing brilliant meaning and descriptions of words. The committee at the Oxford English Dictionary thought him to be a scholar, but he turns out to be an inmate in the asylum.

The purpose of the assignment was to play around with 1) center alignment 2) asymmetrical alignment and 3) an image with an asymmetrical alignment.

Here are the solutions that I presented.

solution 1





















solution 2






















solution 3







Hope you enjoy. :)

Expressive Typography

Type in motion. A very expressive typography video, which is easy on the eyes and very efficient in variation. A good example for anyone interested in Kinetic Type and Expressive Type.



















Enjoy. :)

21st Century Breakdown

A Green Day video. Its been 3 years now that i have been infatuated by this video. Learning Adobe After Effects I think I can finally figure out how to do that! I am going to try doing this.

Green Day 21st Century Breakdown



















The illustration style rendering and effective use of Typography is simply awesome.

Mr.Photographer

A young talent from Mumbai. Doing his stuff, loving his work. I find his work and way of working very inspiring. Having watched him when he struggled with the basics and still watching while he sprouted wings and took off in the skies of creativity, makes me proud.

Mandar Parab

















If you like photography with an attitude, this is a must see.

Thought of you.

A beautiful animation of a song. One of the most beautiful things which I ever saw in my life. With its beautiful strokes, it makes the figures come to life and makes you want to somehow help the guy.

Thought of you.
