“I’m in a journey, like everyone else, of finding myself. I have been drawing through school and after finishing my engineering, got a chance to pursue art professionally by getting through the Masters in Design Program at IIT Bombay. Since then I’ve been doing various illustration and animation projects for a lot of different clients and have been learning and improving with each. I’m also spiritually inclined (meditation and stuff) and am pretty sure that art and spirit are very closely related and the development of one leads to the development of the other.”
Why are you an Illustrator/film maker?
I’ve always loved to draw and tell stories through them. And for a long time from my schooldays I felt I was pretty good at it (that’s not what I feel now). That’s why I pursued it, in the hope of becoming one of the best in it.
