Tree of Love is a sketch where I have attempted drawing human like figures in tree shapes. Since nature has bestowed trees with the widest variety of abstract shapes, I thought of using these to create this piece of art.
I did this in GIMP using my Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. Total drawing time was close to 1 hour 15 mins, though I had planned this in an ‘important’ work meeting in the morning!!

I work with IBM India Pvt Ltd. As IBM is celebrating this year as its centenary year, many things are happening within the organization. As a part of this celebration, a video making contest was organized by IBM for its employees. As soon as I came to know about this, I had to jump into it.
So I came up with this interesting 60 seconds video – ‘To Boldly Go Where No One Has Gone Before’.
The philosophy I used in this video was that of the synergy between man and the machine. In the science fiction and popular culture, these two entities are always shown fighting for the domination of our dear planet. But IBM has been constantly striving to make better and smarter machines to make our lives easier.
This 1 minute video took 10 hours to make, all of it after work late in the night. I finished the script, background narrative recording and thumb nailing on night 1, followed by all other work (drawing the final images – 30 of them, editing, sound effects and final touches) on night 2. I spent the next day being a zombie (a very happy and contented zombie indeed).
