ಕನ್ನಡ typography..

ಕನ್ನಡ (Kannada) one of the finest and oldest languages in India! Being born and brought up in kannada speaking city(Bengaluru),the awesomest city i’ve ever known,though my mother tongue is not kannada(Telugu pilla),i find myself speaking kannada 99% , and i almost everywhere converse ,in kannada.*its better that way*

As november is coming around, November 1st is Kannada Rajyotsava, i don’t call myself outrageously *i mean overly* patriotic,*there are people who are die-hards,i’m not comparatively nearer*,but  i’ve my own love and way of being a proud kannadati(Karnataka’s girl/women) it’s the place where we earn our bread,not just that it’s my birth place,we have made our living here peacefully,this place has been wonderful most! *no complaints* This state has something for every wandering soul here*if you have been here, you know what i mean* – i’m short of words for explaining my gratitude! 

Every part of this state has something to offer,from beautiful scenery,food,culture and every perspective has its own uniqueness of beauty and surprise filled! I love it for the beautiful places the state’s pride.

FEW FAVOURITES FROM  MY Infinite LIST  OF  TRAVEL GOALS IN KARNATAKA:

  • India’s Scotland –Coorg tops my list,
  • Bengaluru/Bangalore – living here is a blessing!* undoubtedly *(Best climate,city,culture,food,people,metro life) & it’s still evolving wonderfully!! 
  • Chikmagalur- best homestays  
  • Nandi hills is my to go place for early morning bliss & occasional long rides * feels like floating in heaven,up early in the morning(Some out of the world experience)* 

More updates on the list coming soon ..

Before the Month starts, i’m trying my hands on KANNADA TYPOGRAPHY! *from basics*

Kannada typography/ lettering is least found! Not just this occasion inspired me ,but during my first official handlettering times,when dad suggested why don’t you try in kannada! That point ,that pop of idea inspired me .Hence consider it,paying tribute to my state on this occasion*

 PROVERB >> Manasiddare marga (Literal translationIf you have the intentions,there’s always a way!)

Also means > WHERE THERE IS A WILL,THERE’S A WAY.

Baby Elephant,Awareness & a new thought!

Hello,

Today in India, it’s time for Diwali ( festival of lights) widely celebrated with colorful lights,diyas,sweets and crackers*Ritual*! About the new thought ,it’s regarding the blog and details about it is in the end of the post.

Well Everything is fine during Diwali! But after reading all those hazardous effects and damage crackers causes to living beings and our environment,Do we still need to necessarily burst crackers?! Sad thing is, most of the well educated people involve in denying the fact and continue enjoying to burst loud and polluting crackers! *Not fair*

As we all know it’s important to save our earth for us to survive,but when all the thought is forgotten on a day like this and without second thought, people everywhere calling it a compulsory ritual starting to pollute and harm animals* yes,even if no animal is hurt,its harmful for them ~ be it the loud sound which affects their hearing, their whole system goes for a toss,they are totally disturbed with those sounds and smell- being a pet lover and pug momie ,i know how hard it is for them to be normal or relaxed and breathe or go out on day like diwali..*

So i request not only because of my doggie being harmed,but to the strays without shelter,they have a weak heart for strong sounds, consider them before bursting crackers, I’m not completely asking  you to refrain from bursting crackers , there are light sounds and non polluting crackers , go with that. It’s just a moment of excitement and fun,but a long time damage to whole ecosystem! *THINK and BE WISE*

Okay! Now about the new thought regarding this blog, Well i’ve plans for making A-Z COLORING CATEGORY! where i’ll be drawing stuffs accordingly! I’m also looking for different authors who can take part in this category! since this is new to me , suggestions or any ideas will help me much!

share a comment on what you think about this 🙂

Major throwback!

Hello people!

Today it’s about the major throwback of my old stuff. An art is never too old to showcase,even if it is ,it’s still an antique piece of creativity! Well my work isn’t that huge piece of antique or something of sorts!But it’s something not everyone tries their hands on!! *feels good B)*

It’s about my works that i did long ago,say like 5 or 6 years old!! It was those days when i had no idea what i was doing and starting to try small things through MICROSOFT PAINT!

*yes! you read that right MS PAINT*

Well you can question what can you do in that?! If it was now, i would say with its advanced features and updates there’s lot you can do with a simple application called MS paint.But back then with no such great tools or updated version ,just with basic typical MS PAINT tools i started drawing. And first few were a buh! Just Basic play with cut and erases!!Later i started using reference and started drawing them in MS PAINT and liked them and felt unique *back then it was a BIG Deal to work with MS PAINT (PS: for self learnt or amateurs) hence that much happy i was when i finally accomplished my first drawing.But i didn’t just keep it raw *you know too raw* hence i edited them with PHOTOSCAPE for an little pop up of colors and highlights! *its an editing app,so popular with non photoshop users  (like me back then)or say like who had no knowledge of photoshop *

Here’s just few pieces of work i’ve done! Check my FLICKR CHRONICLES in the sidebar for step wise and more!!

Steadlerfly!

This one was made in very short span of time for my niece who wanted me to draw a butterfly late at night!

It happened two days ago but i happened to post it today! It was around 10:30 in the night,on that day when i had my moodswings screwing bad.My niece was around playing with my steadlers,my tools stuff and such.She came asking to draw something for her.When i asked what she wanted,after too many confusions she finally decided that she wanted a butterfly!

Its hard to keep her waiting and she is extremely bad at it too*typical childlife* after her 10 minutes long wait , this was the output! i know its pretty simple but simple things can impact big changes.With just few staedtler watercolor pencils and highlighters,a quick watercolor’ed butterfly and all i could see was her *unique blushy kinda smile*  happy and that made my moodswing shoo away! *Stressbuster* *healing*

No matter if its just a line or whole mandala you’re drawing ,if you are not okay! Just that one thing can make you feel better and relaxed!

Well i’ll call these as ” my first official hand-lettered wall art/display ” .Because after long time i re-started filling my sketch books with calligraphy stuff and such.This  *framed pieces* were sent as gifts to my dad friends for an festive occasion. I felt overwhelmed, when i was asked to send it as gifts. I know this isn’t something great of sorts to boast about, but still am at this point where i can actually do something! *spreading good vibes *

A step forward , a step closer in turning my hobby into passion 🙂

*Yes!! It feels great!!!*
