Animation




CRUNCH

My love for biscuits inspired me to make this short film. I wanted to experiment
with a combination of styles like stop-motion, pixilation and explore animating
biscuits. It was fun to animate powdered biscuits......I enjoyed the spontaneity.
This film is about someone who loves eating biscuits and eating a biscuit takes her
through a journey of memories in her life associated with biscuits, sometimes
leading to fantastic thoughts. Her mind analyses the memories in the form of a
factory production line, but at the same time its processes and thoughts are pretty
organic rather than being completely mechanical.
I have chosen artificial lighting for the mindscape and natural lighting for the
scenes where the person is presently enjoying eating a biscuit. 
Animating biscuit powder, jam and colorful biscuit wrappers was loads of fun.
In fact, the sound for the film has been done entirely with biscuits and biscuit
wrappers.....CcrrRunchh!

Illustration Friday: MYTH


AAAaaaaachhhooooo!!!  
Whenever I used to sneeze (especially a gooey one), my mom and my grandmom used to say that I was letting out elephants, horses and a whole army of creatures from my nose...
a bizarre myth I would love holding onto forever :)

When it rained a little , and I lived a little more...

  When the mud turns dark
  And knows the taste of clouds
  Someone turns around the tall light
  Blinking at its pores
  Blinking at the softness beneath...
  the shivers brought by the breath
  of a dark drifting sky

  7:30 a.m.|winter rains

tickle tickle !




:)  Thoughts on walls      of my hostel room...Medium: Indian Ink, pencil colors, acrylic paint

I was  in school when I had imagined this poster...probably I was thinking about the state of our rivers and subsequently the condition of the fish while I was attaching some files and papers lying on my desk!
