“The Robin”

I always believed that life was an amalgam of millions of crazy little moments. Those long walks, the late night chat sessions, that first candlelit dinner, those cheesy melodramatic gestures, the old school love letters, the first kiss & the subsequent sweet slide into utter mindlessness, and of course – the first midnight dance in…

Star Wars: Why & How to Watch?

Four decades. Non-fanatics are still astounded by the fact that a sci-fi trilogy of the late 70s made using tacky special effects, rubber puppets, miniature starships and what not, went on to become such a big cultural phenomenon with millions of ardent followers. Not kidding, there are people who literally live & breathe Star Wars…

Dunkirk: Review (Spoiler-free)

With his tenth feature film, writer-director Christopher Nolan mostly breaks away from his traditional roots and plunges his audience in what seems to be a rather intense and unprecedented depiction of the sheer brutality and palpable turmoil experienced by the NAF soldiers during 1940’s Operation Dynamo. This was where a miraculous rescue mission was attempted…

Digital Painting: Mumbai, on the other side.

On the other side of those tinted glass windows of my car, stood a boy who grew up on the pavement. I’d be sitting in my car while he’d knock from the other side every single day, and in my mind I would end up forming a picaresque tale about this young man’s escapades since birth….

Campus Faces Manipal: Digital Paintings

As most of you know, I started my #CampusFacesManipal series a few weeks back, where I started making digital paintings of people around the campus – be it students, faculty or alumni – to work on my graphic art skills. It’s been going great so far, and I’m still taking requests. Do like/follow my page P. Prabhakar and drop me a…

Harry Potter Tribute Series

Fellow Potterheads & Non-Potterheads as well, I put myself through a 24 hour challenge to design artwork for all 7 titles in the Harry Potter saga on my page – yep, digital paintings/artwork that try to recapture the magic of the widely loved phenomenon. It came out way better than I was expecting, so do check it out and…

Deadpool: Manipal Chronicles

Once I was sitting with our honourable college director, Dr. G.K Prabhu for a casual chat in his office, and he asked me something that a lot of people had been pestering me to find out. How did I come up with the idea for this rather crazy series, and why did I chose a…

Manipal Tribute Series.

Having just passed out of Manipal Institute of Technology, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of nostalgia. No more leaky rickshaw rides in the Manipal rains, no more running around to your favourite hangout spots with your chums, no more Saturday night crazy acts, no more secretly snacking with your peeps amidst lectures in…

Random Art|Designs

I keep updating this space with all the random unclassified artwork I keep coming up with from time to time. You can check a few of these below – Harry Potter 20th Anniversary Switching back to vectors for this one. Thanks for making every single day as magical as it was for the last two…

The Mummy: Digital Painting

Digital Painting Poster: The Mummy (2017) Princess Ahmanet – “She is real.” Universal Studios decided to start a reboot-dark monster franchise, but the movie that was supposed to kickstart that franchise was both a critical & a commercial failure. Regardless, I made this a few days before the movie came out.

Anne of Green Gables: Digital Painting

Digital Painting Poster: Anne (CBC|Netflix) This show took me back to Anne Shirley’s early Green Gables adventures yet again, in a slightly more grittier adaptation of the classic (some of us are still used to the CBC ’85 version we watched while growing up, and I still do prefer that one since it stuck close…

Manipal Comic Series.

The thing about nostalgia – it keeps taking you back to whatever you’re missing so deeply in ways you can’t imagine. Here’s a slight comic take on the various situations that Manipalites are used to facing every now and then. It is an ongoing series, so I’ll keep adding more comics from time to time….
