Lesson number one: Do not try to eat chips outside in San Francisco. It is always windy and the wind  is not your friend!

Probably the most hard work I've put into any course so far. I thought I had a lot of patience before taking up this course but Perspective really pushed me. These might look like simple illustrations but there is a foundation of perfect constructions and accurate perspective that led to the final illustration. Who knew even shadows had constructions. I mean let's make the world a simpler place to live in :P
Jokes aside, I learnt so much from this class and came out a little wiser from one of my most dreaded subjects.

Funny how I was itching to go out and paint but couldn't find the time to do it. And then I took a class that made me paint every week. Still can't believe I woke up early morning to capture the sunrise or drove down on my cycle on a foggy day to capture that environment. I chose the fountain near California Academy of Sciences in Golden gate park, just because of how awesome this place is. Over the course of 14 weeks, we had to paint a plein air which is outdoor painting every week at different times of the day.

Color assignment involved fusing Harry potter with Feudal Japan. So I decided to showcase Bellatrix as my main character posed as a Samurai protecting lord Voldemort. I wanted to depict Voldemort from the Philosopher's stone and the  half blood prince, before he achieves his human form. My inspiration came from the ancient japanese spirits and ghost stories.

What started as an idea finally found fruition thanks to my story development class. Anybody who has stayed in Mumbai, can totally relate to the nuisance caused by the gutka spitting Spitaholics, as I like to call them. So here is my story where a young girl receives powers of super human speed to teach these spitaholics a lesson. But there is more, this power is transferable. To completely put an end to the spitting situation, a transformed spitaholic casts a coating over the entire city such that every time a person spits on a surface, the spit bounces back and lands on the spitaholic's shirt or trousers. People finally start using spittoons installed in public places as the girl, the transformed spitaholic and the mentor look on.

Interestingly this method was put to use in Hamburg where walls were being sprayed with "Ultra-Ever Dry super hydrophobic, oleophobic nano coating". The coating is so water repellant that even urinating on such a surface becomes a shoe-wetting, trouser-soaking exercise as the wall pees back at the perpetrators. Would love to see this being applied in India.
