Paint My Wall – Terrace

Paint My Wall is my initiative to beautify walls with a purpose.
Terrace, is the first Paint My Wall project.
The residents of a two storied building in Mumbai faced the problem of trespassers climbing up to the terrace. There was a need for signage to prevent non-residents entering the terrace area.
An engaging wall mural of people sitting on the railing followed by a ‘terrace’ sign was painted.

Paint My Wall – Now Or Never

PAINT MY WALL is a series of wall painting projects, ‘Now or Never’ is the second of the series. (Click here to see the first). This project is also a part of #pranitasdrawingaday (click here to see more) that was a 365 days project. The wall mural was done on the 365th day.
Idea and process:
“At first I was really confused about what my final drawing should be, and I began reflecting on the last 365 days. This project has helped me in a lot of ways – it taught me to create discipline. It taught me to stop beating myself if the drawing isn’t perfect but instead to enjoy the process of drawing. It taught to experiment without having any final goal. It is really difficult to think of something to draw everyday, which is how I started observing things more and more. And I don’t only mean observing people and the environment; I began observing my moods, my feelings, my emotions, and tried capturing them on paper. This helped analyse a lot of my problems and de-stress. My confidence as an artist and a person has increased a lot, I had times when I wouldn’t draw until I visualised an idea by the fear of it not looking good on paper. Today, I make lots of drawings, and embrace even the ugly ones, learning from new each scrapped paper. I realised that creating art for myself or a client isn’t about the final artwork, its about the process of enjoying the artwork.
And these realisations apply to my life as well. The discipline, will and confidence created by drawing everyday has made me a better/ more efficient person.  I’m far more comfortable about my work, and myself. And the biggest realisation I got last year from this project is you have to get up and do it, don’t snooze your alarm, just get up, cause its now or never. Whether it is about improving my drawing skills, or about running/exercising more often, or about wanting to be a nicer person. Waiting for anything to happen that’s fully in your control is just wasting time. And I urge everyone to do something they like doing everyday, whether its drawing, writing or practicing math!”








Alice In Wonderland / Type design

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” – Lewis Carroll

Alice In Wonderland is my favourite book since childhood and I chose to design a typeface to show my gratitude to Sir Lewis Carroll for giving me a whimsical book to get lost in when the world felt too mainstream. Imagination has no bounds. And that is something I wanted to portray through my typeface, targeting not only children but also adults.

The typeface is a 3D experimental display typeface. There are times in the book, where Alice eats the cake or drinks the potion and her size increases and decreases. Here, the objects around Alice are viewed from different perspectives. Thus, I decided to use three perspectives but keep it as simple as possible so the typeface is readable.
Each alphabet is either a character from the book, or a part of the story.
Following is the list of the concepts of the final alphabets:

A-   Playing cards
B-   Alice’s neck twisting (While she ate a piece of mushroom, her neck elongated and twisted in the fields)
C-   Cake (the dessert that was stolen from the Queen of Heart’s kingdom)
D-   Caterpillar
E-   Direction signs (the cheshire cat confuses Alice about directions, after which she reaches the mad hatter’s party)
F-    Flamingo (used by the Queen to play a game of croquet)
G-   Tea cup (an upside down cup and saucer)
H-   Tweedledum & Tweedledee
I-     Key (used to open doors when she falls down the rabbit hole)
J-    Mad Hatter
K-   Key (used to open doors when she falls down the rabbit hole)
L-    Alice
M-  White Rabbit
N-   Caterpillar
O-   Rabbit Hole
P-   Tear drop (when Alice is twice her size, she begins to cry and a pool of tears is created)
Q-   White Rabbit’s watch
R-   March Hare
S-   Cheshire Cat
T-    Mushroom (on which the caterpillar was seen)
U-   Cheshire Cat
V-   Alice
W-  Queen Of Hearts
X-   Direction signs (the cheshire cat confuses alice about directions, after which she reaches the mad hatter’s party)
Y-   White roses painted red
Z-    Alice’s neck twisting (While she ate a bite of the mushroom, her neck elongated and twisted in the field)

I owe this to Manasi Keni, a wonderful mentor, designer and friend.
