Artist : Prince Sarmah

Social Media- this medium is a huge push in itself if used properly- He had interest in art from childhood, but after joining instagram, he came to know about a lot of great artists. And after checking their works, be had decided to improve on his skills. So here he is still learning his things. All these things went unplanned for him..!!

About his style-

He loves to experiment, and he thinks that’s the best way to learn. So we can say that by watching his feed, he loves to sketch portraits as of now. Though he tries a lot of them in a different way. There are a lot of challenges that he has to face in everyday life pursuing what he loves, main challenges are motivation and mind block. You can’t make art unless you feel so, hence he has to check instagram or other media for constant inspirations and motivations. Or he ends up thinking only.

His main style is sketching, though he does watercolour and oil paintings too, but till now he is showing his sketches in social media. His tools are not that expensive or so, he uses whatever he finds in his local art supply, pencils like 2H(for lighter areas), HB, 4B, 5B, 8B(for darker tones) all mainly from brands like Apsara, Camlin etc . And his favourite tools are hi mechanical pencils, he loves them. He uses HB leads in them. He uses ball point pens for some sketches too. He prefers Reynolds 045 fine carbure for that. And i use normal art pages but sketch pads from brands like rubberband and mypaperclip are nice as well.

There are a lot of artists and photo magazines who inspire him.Some artists are ▶Daniel Segrove (@dsegrove) ▶Dika Toolkit (@toolkit04) ▶Farooky (@farooky) ▶James Jean (@jamesjeanart)

As a child he always wanted to do some creative works. He wasn’t sure about what to become. But he loved creative things. He is not professional, so he is not working from this field but he gets some offers from brands like Motorola, Vague for some arts. And he gets commissioned orders as well.

Artist of the Month| July’15|Illustrator : Nilomee Jesrani

Nilomee Jesrani : Things come to you naturally because after all, destiny is destiny..!! To our artist of the month, things actually came naturally and visually. It was quite simple, She would get excited about executing ideas for art and illustration when She saw things that inspired her. Like we have always said, inspiration is the biggest motivation one can ever get..!!

As all artists face situations where they feel their work starts resembling their inspiration, but the more they draw, the more personal it becomes, and then a STYLE emerges, similar happened with our artist of the month. For a while, She felt that She didn’t have a STYLE till someone pointed it out to her. ‘Style’ could mean anything your choice of colours, the tools you use, the way you draw details, the subject etc. Her work reflects who she is. She loves trees, birds, animals etc. And she like colours. She also tends to day dream quite a bit-

A DAY DREAMER- best of a creative soul..!! And her love for illustrations-she has been drawing since she could hold a crayon, and she never knew it was called ‘illustration’ till she went to Art/Design school. She likes it because she gets to define her rules in what she illustrates and gets to break them in her own way. She sees it as a form of expression, and a way to bring together her love for colour and drawing. She doesn’t have a set process. She process is defined by the medium. To do digital illustrations, she dives right in. She makes quick rough on Photoshop, and draws over it in. Usually the end result looks very different from the rough sketch.

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE-

It was her  first film ‘The Runaway Circle’.She studies Animation at the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad. As her first independent project, she had to come up with a story, animate it, add sound, edit it etc. It involved bringing together her  skills as an artist and tested her  at many levels. The film is about a chalk circle that runs away from a (blackboard) duster that wants to erase it. In the end she had a really good time making it, but she struggled with finding the right ending to the story till the right idea hit her and then it all fell into place.

INNER SATISFACTION OF LOVE FOR WORK-

She is not satisfied with on a daily basis but it is natural. As an artist, you tend to constantly question your skills, but when she works and gets ready absorbed in an illustration, she looses track of time and feels happy with what she is doing. After she finishes it, the feeling of SATISFACTION she gets is amazing.

She wants to learn illustrate with paper. She has been meaning to do that for a long time because it involves using her hands and crafts skills. She tends to stick to digital because of the bright colours she can use on a computer, but she knows that it’s possible to achieve something as beautiful and crafty even out of paper. She also wants to try painting on canvas with acrylics. She loves the matte finish they give.

THE WISE ADVICE-

Learn how to get your work out and how to share it on social media. Loom around and look at every opportunity to put your work on things. Think about the other skills you need to pick up to put your work on a new platform and learn them.”
