Trip to the Mall.. Are you serious?


A lot of things have changed as soon as I’ve graduated and started working a full-time job. But since I’ve already explained in my previous post, so let’s cut to the chase. Whether it’s professional or personal, Life is stressful and you need to take a break sometimes.

And how about going to the mall for a while?

I know most of you people will say this idea something ridiculous and gonna suggest rather go somewhere outside the city, maybe even outside the country. I don’t mind. But to be honest, It’s still fine with me to go somewhere near and do something rather than doing absolutely nothing. And besides, I’ve having fun anyway. Isn’t that having enough purpose to travel and enjoy life? 😀

But that’s not the topic I wanna discuss here and go further on a debate about traveling places. Instead, I’ll be sharing a story here and my experience in visiting malls, which explains why I sometimes prefer to go to the mall whether I’ve a movie/hangout plans or not.

Most of you know that I love art. I often keep doing some artistic and creative stuffs. That’s explains much about my twitter handle. Right? 😛 However, I’ve been obsessed with mall art for a long time. It has its own charm, especially during special occasions. Apart from taking some pictures (maybe few selfies), I’ll mostly stand there for minutes gazing the pattern and detailing of the work. Even I might take some time for thinking about my own interpretation. I know it seems weird and it’s OK. But it is inspiring me to do some other things that I love. Hopefully, I’ll make an alternate career from it someday. 😉

Here are some pictures I took so far.

And you can see further more in my Instagram account.

And here a bit of story for those who already got bored. I once went with my sister to the mall nearby few weeks ago. She took me to this Forever 21 store for her shopping, which I think most girls and women do have some kinda obsession (Not judging anybody here). But for a guy like me, It is bit stressful while helping her out and sharing my opinion on what suits her best (And now, anybody don’t judge me here too). Sometimes I might try to check something at the men’s section for myself meanwhile. But damn sure, my shopping will be over in 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile she’ll make me to wait for over half an hour and I always in search for some time-pass.

And outta nowhere, I noticed this mannequin somewhere near denim section. I suddenly reached to my smartphone, opened my favorite sketching app and started doing what I always like to do.

Close enough, huh? 😉 My sister was impressed with this artwork once she was done with her shopping. She eventually credited herself for bringing the creative side of mine.

I guess I should stop by to other Fashion stores often.

But with my sketching pens and painting brush next time. 😛

P.S. And for your fun pleasure, Here’s something my colleague has to share. Enjoy. 😛

Rock v/s Metal


Hiee Guys !!

It’s been quite a lot of time since I’ve posted my last Art Blog Post. Well kinda busy in office works, so hardly get any time to post here actively. Hover, I am still trying to balance between my brand new office life and my good ole creative life. The fight is still going on between them for setting priorities and making commitments.

Anyways, I’m back to blogging because I’ve got something to showcase over here. 😉

Well, you all know about my passion and addiction for Rock and Metal Music through my previous posts. I don’t wanna get into the details, just simply and check out my “The Big 4” Artwork. You’ll get plenty of idea and besides, I am kinda busy, you see.  😛

Moving on, I’ve simply sketched an Electric Guitar on the White Board, using Temporary White Board Markers. Making something interesting on this guitar, I’ve included an Angel wing (representing Rock music) and a Devil wing (representing Metal music). Since I like my artwork to look complete on Board with no white spaces left, I’ve written the names of some my favorite Rock bands (in Blue Color) and Metal bands (in Red Color) in the background. Well the Angel Wings and Blue colored Rock Band names defines the softness and serenity of Rock Music, while the Devil Wing and Red colored Metal Band names personifies the hardness and extremity of Metal Music.

With this idea of Rock-Metal Duality in mind, the masterpiece was made. Take a look fellas !!

DAMN !! It took me around almost 2-3 days to complete this artwork during the Lunch or Free time in my Office. Finally, the hard work and patience really paid off. Moreover, some of my colleagues liked it very well.  I’m feeling glad that I could resume my sketching hobby during the hectic office hours also. However, a lot a Board Markers were used to make this thing happen. Hopefully, my Boss won’t be mad. Fingers Crossed. 😛

And by the way, it has been an amazing 3 months experience so far in my office. I’ll tell you the complete story some another day. Besides, There are plenty of artworks made during my college days, which have not been posted here yet. I will post them as soon as possible.

So Fellas !! Stay Connected. Stay Updated.

Hopefully, y’all have like this piece of work and don’t forget to post you reviews.

Farewell NSIT


Lot of things going through my head
Lot of emotions coming from my face
It simply ain’t easy to move forward
It simply ain’t easy to leave this place
Still yet to be recognized by people
Still yet to make a name in the crowd
At least been known among my friends
At least made my loved ones feel proud

The author takes you to the very heart of Microsoft’s project team where you’ll meet not only David Cuttler, the brilliant and brutal architect behind the operating system, but most of the engineers and project leaders involved in the development of Windows NT. See how some of the team members literally sacrificed their family and social life to make this thing work in time. While this is not a technical book, software developers as well as project leaders, and anyone interested by Microsoft products, will have a hard time pulling their eyes away from it.

The Ultimate History of Video Games

The Ultimate History of Video GamesAuthor: Steven L. Kent
Publisher: Three Rivers Press
624 pages
Book homepage

For you gamers out there, this is THE ultimate book to own. To understand where your favorite game console comes from, you need to know the story behind the pinball, the pong, and the development of the first consoles such as the Atari 4600. In this 624-page brick of a book, Kent covers all the angles, anecdotes and humorous stories, such as the rename of Puck-Man to Pac-Man to avoid an unfriendly rename starting with the letter “F”.

Publisher: Delta

Does IT Matter?

Does IT MatterAuthor: Nicholas G. Carr
Publisher: Harvard Business School Press
208 pages
Book homepage

Blinded by their arrogance and syndrome of God, too many IT managers are missing the whole point behind information and technology, which is to provide commodities, as Carr claims. IT must stop focusing on following technology and should realign its mission behind the concept of providing solutions to fulfill business needs. And just as the steam engine, railroad, telegraph and electricity, technology evolves to a point where manpower decreases substantially, and IT will be no exception. This is a must-read for high-level management! I recommend everyone involved in IT to keep this book on their bedside table.

On The Edge: The Spectacular Rise and Fall of Commodore

On The Edge: The Spectacular Rise and Fall of CommodoreAuthor: Brian Bagnall
Publisher: Variant Press
548 pages
Book homepage

Raise your hand those who once owned a Commodore 64? God, I would pay a lot of money to go back to the 1980s when the C64 was the king of the hill. This particular book, however, is not about hot rods. The story of Commodore is about very affordable family computers. This book starts at the very beginning of Commodore, when they acquired MOS Technologies, a semiconductor manufacturer, that lead to the development of the PET. Once the PET was history, then came the VIC-20, followed by the Commodore 64, which is known as the most sold computer of all time. The story even introduces the 128, the Amiga, and the end of Commodore. How could such a successful company fall so abruptly from the top of the world? This is what you will find out if you get yourself a copy of On The Edge. Definitely one to buy for the Commodore lover. And while you’re at it, check out this VIC-20 TV ad to remember the good old days.

Hackers

HackersAuthors: Steven Levy, Steven Levy

In a period where computers were looked at like lab rats, university researchers and early developers such as Lee Felsenstein, Bill Gates and Steve Wozniak, pushed their limits and literally inspired what would be one day be seen as the computer revolution. Hackers offers a peek at a very formative time in geekdom and is worth reading no matter what year it is.

This is the story of Steve Jobs, starting from the moment he was pushed away from Apple in 1985, and following his story until his return in 1996. During his leave of absence, Jobs tried to revolutionize education with the NeXT Cube, his startup that never made it big. On the side though, he purchased Pixar, the company behind Toy Story, from George Lucas himself, and literally made a fortune with something he couldn’t care less about. Finally, his journey with NeXT ended when the company was purchased by Apple in 1996, bringing Jobs back to his mother company, and the rest is history. The story of Jobs’ post-1985 Apple career is captivating, and the author brings you a very well-written book that’s entertaining from the first to the very last page.

Muscle Wheelie


Heyy Guys !!

Few weeks back, I was studying Cryptography really hard for my upcoming Mid Semester College Examinations. Though it is a quite interesting subject, but I desperately needed a break for a while as I was cramming my notes for 4 hours non-stop. 😛

In order to kill the stress and produce some creativity, I started scribbling a small artwork (for which I am passionate of) on my Cryptography Book. I simply draw a cartoon of an American Muscle Car performing a Wheelie Burnout Stunt, with Ball Point Pen.

Take a look on the artwork, fellas.

A Cute Bug – Sketching and Coloring


Heyy Guys !! Wassup ?? 😀 8)

Like I always say, ” I would BRING something NEW for y’all everytime”.  Well !! Keeping that promise always in my mind, I keep on bringing that thing for ya everytime. Isn’t it Guys ??  8)

So !! It’s no time to waste in discussion and Let’s move Further. 😛

Well being into Technical Field, I just thought of making a Cartoon of  a Computer Bug this time. I’ve experienced that DAMN nostalgic, irritating and totally dangerous thing so far in many of my friends’ Desktops n’ Laptops, even in mine as well. For getting started, I’ve made a Pencil Sketching of a Computer Bug with some kinda Cute-face, but it seemed like it was thrashing your Computer by eating your Keyboard with FUN. 😛 And after Sketching (with some rubbing and re-drawing), it’s time to apply some Poster Colors on it for making a Nice artwork.

Take a look on this thing fellows. 😉
