Ok , so I suck at deviantArting as of now. Last I posted was September last year, saying hey hey I'm going to be all good now and keep posting stuff, but well looookeee here, I obviously haven't
WAIT. I do have a GREAT reason. Here are the updates.
So I quit Law School.
Moved out of Pune, where I lived alone and all that.
Back home @ Coimbatore.
The 'rents freaked ofcourse.
I applied for 2 Distance Education Programmes.. a Bachelors in English Literature, and a Bachelors in Visual Communication.
Andddddd A certificate course in 3d Animation, which is meh
Learning Photoshop was fun...and ... A diploma in creative writing through Distance Education again.
I also applied for a Communication Design Course, full time at a good design school.. DJ academy of Design, run by National Institute of Design's founding chairman Prof.S.Balaram who has also been on the board of all the other top design schools in my country.., it's residential, got students from all over .. it's near my city.. and la voila I GOT IN !!! woo !
Besides that, life turned out great after I took that grand step of quitting Law and leaving that awesome city, back to my small-city roots
I first got a job Copywriting and doing Public Relations and Photography for a rave new Fashion Brand called Dope, which specialized in graphic art teeshirts and etc., which means I got to give a helluva lot of design inputs, what an amazing learning experience. As I was doing that, I also got involved in a very reputed, Art initiative called Contemplate, founded by one of the pioneering supporters of the Contemporary Arts Movement in India, its pretty big, I am on the team, doing promotions for their shows, learning as I go
.... And the local music and theatre scene where I again do promotions, event organizing and photography. .. andddd a Weekend sports event organization called Phenomenon Sport that's fast becoming a National Level Movement... and I organized India's first pillowfight day and Urban Playground Page which was a bit of a bummer, but in my little city quite a big thing
annnnddd finally due to certain issues I quit work at the fashion brand.. but continued to work for this super cool and popular one of a kind in my city, open space cultural cafe, for whom I do events, promotions and PR for, called Atmos Cafe, plus some promotions,photography and poster design work for the local Alliance Francaise, and etc. etc phew*
Design school starts in a week.. and I just celebrated my 21st birthday.
What can I say, if I had never found dA and gotten all your support and encouragement through comments, faves and watchers and etc.,, I'd never have thought seriously about making this jump.. but touchwood, it's been all good, and I'm sure it only gets better if one follows their heart's dream !!
I've got a lot to upload now, and will do so... but in random order yes ?
Sorry about that, getting a site soon !
Comment, comment, Comment on everything .. I need allll the feedback possible.
Much, much love,
the mad one !
