The Thought Behind Born Free

Written as part of HARPs Round 5 Team: Butterfly, Points: 3+8+2=13 What I want to share with you today is unlike what I usually post. I’ve seen many ‘identity crisises’ going on around the blogosphere, and that has gotten me thinking- what is the identity of my blog? The reason my blog is called Born Free was… Continue reading The Thought Behind Born Free

Recent Digital Artwork// SIL Challenge #4

In my time as a designer I have been constantly using external sources for my designs, and naturally when I began making my own I was rather enthusiastic. Do you remember when I showed you this? Here’s what it looked like before I digitalized it. When I took my hand-drawn work and converted it into… Continue reading Recent Digital Artwork// SIL Challenge #4

Design Pique is Changing// SIL Challenge #3

When I launched Design Pique Studios I began with incredibly low expectations. No kidding. I expected people to be protective of their mail ids, for one thing. I thought they wouldn’t want to trust someone whose work they hadn’t even seen. I thought that the exposure was very less anyway, so the orders would come… Continue reading Design Pique is Changing// SIL Challenge #3

A Mirror to My Self

An aesthetic to reflect my personality, inspired by Gracie’s post (which was inspired by Lonelymeme’s post). Haha, good ideas travel far. 😉 i love: stars, the ocean and the play of words, seeking songs that are whispered, too vague to be heard,  the fog in the mountains, sunlight through the trees, a walk by the… Continue reading A Mirror to My Self

Roadside Markets// Indian Bazaar Photoshoot

One of the most prominent things about India is its street markets. They are many things, fascinating, colourful, and bustling with life. But today we’re dealing with colourful. There is much I did when I was on vacation last December, and apart from tripping, breaking a nail and getting a blister, which is all only… Continue reading Roadside Markets// Indian Bazaar Photoshoot

What the Sea Tells Me

On our recent vacation, which was the main reason for my absence throughout December, we visited the sea twice. Once it was for a ferry ride and once it was to visit the beach. And while we were there, I remember my mom randomly asking me a question- what do we learn from the sea?… Continue reading What the Sea Tells Me

BIBPC the Fifth, Category Seven (Time is Bugging Me)

Seven. That means the end is near. Mm… that came out wrong. So apparently this is the seventh category of BIBPC and there are… *counts* zero categories left. Wow. Time is annoying. Fast and annoying. Like bugs. Uh… that doesn’t matter. What matters is that Pineapple now has 607 points and hasn’t lost the lead.… Continue reading BIBPC the Fifth, Category Seven (Time is Bugging Me)

BIBPC the Fifth, Category 6

I missed the last BIBPC category, changed my design again, and my posts are getting less versatile. Huh. I’m on a roll. Anyway, I’m going to try to win us at least a few points this time. Very like me to post at the last moment, don’t you think? Pineapple’s still in the lead with 510.… Continue reading BIBPC the Fifth, Category 6

Books, Flowers etcetera// BIBPC the Fifth, Category Three

Yesterday a friend and I decided to have a little photography session, just for a change. Then again, the third category for BIBPC was out, so I thought I’d have some fun. We found this neat grassy area for a backdrop and laid out books. There were little flowers of white and violet, so that… Continue reading Books, Flowers etcetera// BIBPC the Fifth, Category Three
