As usual it has been years since I made a post here. It’s the year 2020, I’m living and working in Singapore and it’s absolutely crazy out there in the world. From covid 19 , bush fires, plane crash, locust outbreak… its amazing that’s barely been half a year.
My work has been incredibly busy as well so when my friends at open door started putting out sketching prompts I found much needed meditation in the process of drawing. I shall some of the sketches from those here as well. But this post is for consistently following the prompts on conceptsapp page for a whole week. Some of these are my absolute favorite illustrations I have done.
Day 7 , may 31: my dream bathroom. Inspired out of a bathroom I was able to experience back in karachi when I worked at design options. I love being able to have natural light and view of some greens in my spaces. Bathrooms are no exception.
Day 6, May 30 a playground. We haven’t been outside properly in over 3 months now and although I don’t frequent playgrounds the thought of being in one sounds rather lovely
Day 5, May 29: re-imaging my interior sketching space. Since I’ve been working on illustration at my current office in Dbb I was introduced to Memphis style illustrations by our in house graphic designer. I used her proposal and took it forward and the client approved the design much to my delight. I can’t wait for it to be physically printed and applied. In this sketch I worked on another Memphis style illustration for the background of my modern home
Day 4, May 28 . Eeeek! A lizard. I live on the 14 floor here in Singapore and I absolutely love being able to see the green and the rain through my window. Normally this would bring in lots of small little creatures but fortunately I haven’t seen any in my nearly 2 years of being here. Phew!!
Day 3, May 27 . Lemme take a selfie. Since we can’t be traveling around the world I assumed the alien may be immune to covid 19. So we can travel through his images.
Day 2. May 26 .Decorative column. What if the Corinthian columns were re designed with willow tree leaves? This was a fun experiment using the prompts column . Willow tree . Lake. I didn’t know how to bring in the lake. Any thoughts?
Day 1, May 25. The day 1! This took me the longest probably because I haven’t done a detailed illustration like this in a long while and never on the concepts app. I enjoyed this so much it kept me going all the week. This is also one of my favorite from this week.
So we come to the end of this week. Hope I can continue this consistently along the week. Now I’ll get back to my cup of tea and the beautiful rain outside.
