Hello, I’m doing good. Little bit tied up with work lately, that’s it! Hope you guys are doing well too. 🙂
Your current project – this one – tell us a little bit about it, how did it happen and what’s it all about?
First of all I just want to add that both the characters of our web comics is highly inspired by two iconic fictional characters named “Byomkesh Bakshi” and “Feluda” written by two great writers of India, Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay and Satyajit Ray.
Working with my brother Ritabrata is quite fun and easy cuz’ we almost share the same interests in every creative aspects. Being knowing him since ages have eased my task in this case. We always brainstorm, imbibe each others ideas and inputs and work in this project.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So why write a thousand words when you can say it with an image?. Illustration means to show or demonstrate something clearly. An effective illustrated writing clearly demonstrates and supports a point through the use of evidence. Words and images complement each other. And since writing is an art, writing and art can live side by side, coming together to keep you inspired and motivated.
The past and present centuries have been awash with artistic productions and cultural practises that speak towards political life – whether dynamic or static. Arts and culture have played a big influence and role in influencing society and public discourse and participation in politics. The arts and culture have been catalysts for positive social change and transformation.
Yes, I’m the part of a small music project called “Simplers’ Project” as a singer/songwriter and we are cooking some new music. Been working really hard on our debut album “Into the Woods” which is gonna come out probably early next year. We released two singles from there and got a good response til now. You can hear them here and here.
