Yesterday, another rocking show of Expressions Surabhi group happened in Pune. This time it was O.P. Nayyar Hits. The show was a grand success.
I painted a digital image commemorating OP Nayyar and his exceptional musical career. The painting was printed onto a flex and served as a backdrop (15 X 7.5 feet in size) for the program.
This is the poster for the Expressions Surabhi show on musician duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal performed last Sunday.
Final Print size = 4 feet X 3 feet
Done in Manga Studio 5
Painted this poster for the Bappi Lahiri extravaganza that happened yesterday. This program was organized by the art group I am associated with – Expressions Surbhi. This poster was displayed on the stage background in 5 x 4 feet size.
Painting a Bappi Lahiri poster is always fun, with all the jewelry, gaudy color combos and the always-happy caricature look of the music maestro himself!
An Art group, Expressions Surabhi, of which I am a member, is going to do a show of hit songs of the (whimsically) famous Bollywood musician Bappi Lahiri. I designed a poster for this program. Here it is, as funky and gaudy as Bappida can get!
I am very happy to announce that the 2nd episode of Checkmate series I had started last year has been published on MadeFire app. This series is available on iPad, Android tablets, Windows tablets and Windows PC via the (free) MadeFire app.
With the creation and publication of Checkmate series, my work is getting displayed alongside the best artists and the most powerful graphic novel publishers like DC :-), and I am really excited to go global via this amazing tool.
Special thanks to Amit Joshi for composing an amazing background score for this series.
Checkmate – part 2 is now complete and awaiting publication on iOS and Android (via MadeFire app), and web (via DeviantArt).
I did these quick paintings in a span of 4 days in ArtRage on iPad using a stylus.
R. D. Burman was a legendary, game changer Bollywood musician through the decades of 70’s to 90’s, before his sudden demise in 1994.
Yesterday, an art group, of which I am a member, did a fantastic audio visual program on the life and time of the RD.
For this program, I had painted a portrait of RD, which was printed in large size and displayed in the background.
I painted this digitally in GIMP.
Day before yesterday I downloaded ArtRage for iPad, and did this finger painting on iPad.
As the mercury has started soaring in India, and temperatures are reaching near 40 degrees Celsius in my hometown, it’s time to paint something we are so eagerly waiting for. Monsoons and the subsequent green carpets on the countryside, dotted by freshwater rivulets and streams. Drew this to cool my senses today 🙂
Painted in ArtRage Studio Pro.
This is version 1
And this is the version with rains, just as I want it to be!
