Some very frustratin course work leads to the mindless scribbles in the back of my sketchbooks and since my school days i had the habit of scribbling behind the text books..well the habit has'nt left me nd these mindless scribbles which i fondly called "hijibiji" has been an integral part of what i think and create..Thus bringin these scribbles to the fore for the many scribblers who share this habit

From the script to the final visuals it was quite a journey..It was great telling the story of Bhotbhoti Maiti the regular Indian autodriver and his fantasy about his heroic exploits from the international news to the local fims...Although based in kolkata with a slight tinge of the mithun da's and that bong humor i kinda feel it's an everyday indian story with the local kolkata flavour..Probably for me the time spent in creating him was one of the most exciting month in nid from it's research to it's execution....and i'm glad finally everything fell into place..
Another of my characters..developed during the visual scripting workshop. This man Bidrohi sen is our old bong who travels through the many by-lanes of Kolkata to find his own in those regular joints of adda..My script dealt with dying art of public conglomorations and Bidrohi the last lone ranger to hold it back...It was a challenge dealing witha topic like this and creating Bidrohi's space with the couple of other characters

Apart from coming up with the wierd names i had great fun designing this character who is extremely close to my heart..Developed from an early story which i wrote...The Mongolian wizard Hisi-Hisi is an extremely helpful wizard with an enchanting smile..He's a very humble tribute to my childhood days of Ray and goopy-bagha..
These are a few of sketches which i did for the character design workshop...The character is based on a poem by Rabindranath Tagore. Was a bit of challenge trying to bring back the charm of an old black and white Bong..with all his quintessential dhotis and glasses..an ode to the old from the new breed...
