Finger puppets and more!!

Hello! I am happy the way things shaped up for this website design project. Here are the finger puppets created for Inspeero technologies. 

The challenge was to create non-digital background illustrations for Inspeero technologies, a start-up company dealing with development of iOS and Android apps. 

Idea / Solution: - We decided to make hand-made illustrations using paper as a medium. And created these 3D paper models. With each of the illustrations, we have tried to convey the values that the team believes in. Representing Conviviality, Teamwork, Craftsmanship, Attention to detail for every project they undertake


I wanted to learn Origami and use that for one of the illustrations. I think even the simplest origami forms look really beautiful.. May be will try simpler forms in my next project.. 

Btw, I have also shared the images on behance.
here is my profile:

Paper models

Made these paper models for a website illustration project.

Initially I was trying to create models using origami… But it takes a lot of patience and time to learn and achieve perfection and detailing.. So I settled on these pretty looking models from paper..

Paper craft

Have been working on one illustration project for which I am creating finger puppets and paper toys.
I love everything that is 3D and created from paper. Love it.

So its been a fun project with a lot of learning and understanding paper craft! 
I shall shoot and share all the final pictures soon.

Forests Vs. Coal

So which side are you on?

Cultural monoculture

My entry for 'The Divide' illustration project at Kyoorius design yatra 2012 is on Monoculture of the world today - diminishing cultural diversity.

Almost everything that sells is mass produced, globalised and homogenized in our times. Vibrant local arts and artisans are replaced by sterile shows, advertising, media and global marketing. Gray business suits are becoming the statement. 

Mall culture and bulk buying has really made it difficult for the local players to survive. 

Artisans find it difficult to make their living with art and crafts and they too are shifting to alternate sources of income or probably creating only the art that sells, which is in demand. 

Is today’s monocultural world endangering our rich Cultural diversity?

Somewhere I feel sad that I am a part of this race and madness.. But feel too insignificant to change things.

I just read somewhere that re-localization is inevitable.. one can only hope and have faith that things will be fine.. and what we have had for all these years does not fade away by this modernization, westernization. It is good to get in touch with different people in different parts of the world and know them, learn from them.. exchange ideas..

but the awareness is equally important to realize that similarities and differences are both necessary to survive.

How it used to be...
