Identity Short Comic

Posted on August 14th, 2016 in Narrative by Nithin

The short comic Identity was a submission for the Jay Mews Continental Magazine at the Royal College of Art. The brief was to create a wordless comic surrounding any subject of choice. As the magazine was a curation of illustrators at the Royal College of Art in London, I had chosen to create the comic around the experience of living in London as an individual originating from a foreign country.

The Thieving Ants

Posted on August 14th, 2016 in Narrative by Nithin

The thieving ants project was a directed study surrounding an object. The object was documented in the space it was found in, through which a short narrative was constructed around the space that the object belonged too. The metaphor of ants is used to express the heightened importance placed on the object through its study. The ants as directed gather the object upon their backs and then proceed through the efforts required to carry the object to their ant mound at the other end of the room. This surreal space reflects the nature of the mind while in the process of study, the object is put on a pedistool upon which its study is conducted.

Hiroshima

Posted on August 13th, 2016 in Narrative by Nithin

After reading the John Hersey novel Hiroshima, I decided to create images based around the novel that could be used as book covers and or images to be contained within the book. The images depict the intricies of the consequences of the atomic bomb on hiroshima. The novel depicts a shrouded cloud of confusion, the rapture in understanding that was witnessed by the citizens of Hiroshima. I tried to bring this emotion through in my illustrations, capturing the moments in the novel that I believe best resembled this atmosphere.
