For as long as I can remember, the visual narrative has driven me. I'm talking about comics here! I used to devour them as a kid and continue to do so now -- whenever I get my hands on them, that is! Phantom, Archies, The Justice League of America, Marvel Comics, Richie Rich, Mad -- the list is endless!
A self-taught artist, living in India, I meandered into the realm of digital art six years back. I'm an independent film maker/animator who loves tinkering around with various software trying to bring the myriad images in my mind to realization. I like to create an image which conveys a story and is caught at a crucial juncture of the narrative. Guess it comes from a strong passion for story-telling!
I have drawn inspiration from George Lucas, Spielberg and Walt Disney. Being an animation and special effects buff, and having always been attracted towards the fantastic, I have decided to pursue the field of sci-fi/fantasy illustration seriously. I recently received my first commission to illustrate the cover of Future Orbits. My illustrations have also appeared on the cover of Renderosity magazine. I now seek an illustrator's representative to help me peddle my wares in the US!
