Decision decisions decisions…

So of late having attuned myself towards making a pro graphics guy out of myself I have gone about doing the needful (creating a portfolio of sorts, et all). Which lead me to the decision to bifurcate the work I will put up as sample work and the work I will post here on the blog. So in essence from now on mostly it will be photographs put up on this blog which will always be for the personal visual consumption of mine and others. Here’s a link to my make shift portfolio if you are intrested-

Turning Point

No, the artwork is not titled turning point. Its just a slice of life sketch in futuristic Delhi. The Turning Point rather is a reference to how my life has come to that bend in the road from where a whole new brave world awaits me probably. I have decided (after 5 years of bachelors and masters in English Lit) that I dont want anything to do with academia anymore. Just tired of it I guess. Im now fully pursuing the probability of a  career in graphic arts and cinema. Have enrolled myself into a certification course in Graphic Design and slowly changing gears, my old artworks are fading from memory while new fantastical pieces are forming in my head. In due time I hope to have come to a point where I am confident with my own brand of art but for now Im just experimenting with the digital medium. There are a lot many ways these interregnum works can be bettered and thats what Im aiming for; self improvement.
Oh, just so that you dont get confused, Torrun is a random username I created and the work is fully mine.

Recent Works

So I know I have been the lazy like anything on this blog, has been a good deal of time since I last posted anything. I recently joined a graphics design course (which gives me a little assurance that I wont turn out to be a complete waste in life). Of late out of necessity of the course, I have been spending a good deal of time on Photoshop making illustrations; these are just some initial works, I hope to improve and find my own style as I continue working and sketching.

Something I made in school.
As is obvious the technique is a little wanting, but it was made when I was still trying to find my own style.

Shades of mediocrity

I paint my lies with shades of mediocrity,
Only to find that I painted with true colours…

At night I dreamt of my beloved Kal Baisakhi;
Dreamt of the pious fury of the stormy winds…

…In the morning I was back on the dusty streets
Hawking my body, offering cheap rides to tourists.

Wedding Daze

Weddings are happy occasions. I personally believe wedding portraiture needs to be in monochrome, coz it just takes it to a different level. Here’s a sample from the pics I took at my cousin sis’ wedding recently. Expect another batch one soon, as another cousin sis is to be married soon.
