Sometimes its a happy thing when your camera doesnt act the way you want it to,.. or what are watercolour and brushes for! This is an impression of The Supersonics gig I went for last week, held at (no prizes for guessing) Hard Rock Cafe, Pune. It was an energetic show, full of colour and youth, and the promise of a kickass band reunion (they were hibernating for close to 3 years). And what a comeback it has been 🙂
Left to right – Rohan (guitar, backing vocals), Avinash (drums), Ananda (vocals, guitar) and Nitin (bass, not in the composition but present in spirit)
A publication project I had undertaken at design school, following the life and times of Bengali folk-rock band Mohiner Ghoraguli. Sharing the illustrations I had done as part of the same. Barring a couple of illustrations that were done using direct references from original band photographs, all artwork are based on my personal interpretations of their songs and mood. Sketched outlines using pencil, followed up by a quick brushwork with transparent watercolour inks in shades of sepia, stone grey, flesh tint, yellow, blue and red. Later scanned and cleaned up on photoshop. The 32-page book can be read here.

Revamped an old drawing after listening to Sewn and Silent on a loop, a beautiful and haunting single from Karnivool‘s first studio album Themata.
Coloured with oil pastels on textured paper, later scanned and photoshopped.
A quick sketch while listening to Radiohead.. one of my all time favourite songs
Had this idea when Pseudonym was called in to perform at the last hour, to fill in at Someplace Else (The Park Hotel, Kolkata), when American band Black Lips had to cancel their gig. After all, the show had to go on.. 🙂
A week before my semester II jury, I’ve been doing everything but projects and documentation. This is a CD cover for a personal music compilation, using water colour and poster paint.
Note: Rubina is a beautifully written music piece by Joe Satriani, from the album ‘The Beautiful Guitar’
