Influence of Traveling on Art

We are working professionals with a heart in the wild. Traveling inspires us and helps us bring the added creative nuance and subtlety to our studio work. A foray back into the idyll homeland brings newer stories and bridges the conflicting worlds.

Stepping outside the concrete walls, enables us to gain unique perspective into the process. And thus help us SIMPLIFY COMPLEXITY.

Notice the INFLUENCE after Moon‘s October Assam visit.

Meet the HR: Komil Sharma Singh

1. What is my current work attitude/approach?

My work as an HR majorly concerns with enabling my employees/managers achieve organizational goals through collaborated efforts and self-motivation. Hence, my work for me is a medium to influence, engage and motivate. It also involves strategic management of purpose, goals and expectations of individuals, in alignment with organizational values and growth.

2. What have I done so far and what am I currently involved with?

I joined as an HR Intern in a start up and took this opportunity to learn about HR and Entrepreneurship. As soon as I joined in, I got deeply involved in the process of shaping the organizations policies and procedures related to Appointment, Compensation, Benefits, Workplace and Team Ethics. After the intense and careful journey through paperwork, I took up the never-ending task of forming the organizational culture and its set of core values. We are still working on it.

My current challenge includes exploring the world of Recruiting, Hiring and On boarding. This includes evolving our Hiring Process while streamlining it with our mission ‘Simplifying Complexity’; and developing a quality based system of processes for Training and Growth; in order to meet individual growth expectations and provide skills based training that aligns with organizations vision.

3. How did I enter the world of HR?

After working through different profiles/organizations for 6 years, I left my job 4 years ago to start my own venture. A home based Bakery that customizes delicious cuisines from across the world, into healthy products of nutritional value. While my goals were clear, I lacked experience in terms of building the right business model and managing production. In time it made me realize the importance of people. Even geniuses cannot build a castle alone. We need people for everything. We need people to design, people to plan, people to produce, people to market and people to sell.

It is then that I realized how Human Resource is closely linked to Entrepreneurship and that in order to manage anything, one first needs to know how to manage people. I am learning and growing at each step of my journey and consistently direct my achievements to enable the overall growth of my organization and its valuable set if employees.

“A to G of Digital Concept Art” by Moon Arun

21742893_1135296843271607_2819487310577871207_n

A. IDEA:
An idea could be anything from this world or beyond; it could be real or unreal. It could be a figment of your imagination. Or the exact crown on the statue of liberty. But it needs to be built upon. Similarities studied, flaws discarded. The science behind the spark needs to be pondered upon. An idea may come to you in your dreams. To see how the idea plays out, you need to execute accordingly.

B. RESEARCH:
Search and find out the realm of possibility. The existence of your idea and its validity. Research enables you to look at your idea logically. It shows you if your imagination has merit and if the magic is indeed bona fide.

C. REFERENCES:
Filter your idea through references. Ideate to make it stronger. Clear out your doubts, work out the plausibility. Infuse your idea with a visual language. Test it against the existing worlds. Maximize your idea with a plurality of inputs.

D. ROUGH SKETCHES:
Your first sketch is not your final sketch. There are many views to an idea, many perspectives, many shades, and many interpretations. Work with different styles and compositions. There will be many versions of your idea. Choose the one that holds true to your rhythm. Choose the one that resonates.

E. CHOOSE AND START DETAILING (GREYSCALE/COLOUR/LIGHTING):
Choose the best doodle. Work with proper fundamentals in composition, anatomy, rule of thirds and perspective. After defining the outlines or contour lines start with blocking. A greyscale shows you the overall picture. It enables you to realize how your idea will eventually pan out. Colour helps you set the mood and the age of the scene. It helps showcase the time and the era and the setting. Lighting sets the frame. It builds the environment. It helps you highlight elements and it gives the special touch to your idea. A scifi sketch and a historical sketch can be altered just by the use of lighting.

F. DON’T BE AFRAID TO START A NEW SKETCH:
Art is a perfection of your expression. Until you are able to depict your idea in its most intimate and extravagant details, don’t accept. Don’t get too possessive of your arcs and shades. Don’t compromise on your idea. Remember you are refining your own self with every new sketch. Reboot and restart.

G. CREATE SOMETHING IMPORTANT:
The age of mediocrity ended with the age of nobility. As a creator you are endowed with the ability to achieve greatness. Don’t become a Disney stooge. Look into the horizon to step outside the narrow boxes. Don’t trace heroes, create universes. Create something important. Create something that will fight the passing of time and leave a mark for eternity.

The Marshmallow Championship: A Visual Storytelling Workshop

When we visited Daulat Ram College (University of Delhi), our aim was involve the literature student into the process of visualization. To engage them into the journey of visual imagining. We presented them the MARSHMALLOW CHALLENGE.

The project was to create the highest stable structure using 20 spaghetti sticks, thread, tape and a single marshmallow. Within stipulated time, the teams under the flags of “3 Pipers“, “Analytics“, “Marshmallow Whatevers“, “Fantastic 4” and “SMS” built their own towers.

After Q&A related to the task, we ask them to write the story of their Marshmallow Challenge. Translation is the act of generating meaning. It is a process of transmutation. We ask them then to depict their story into a string of images. We encourage them to draw their narrative into a storyboard.

We selected the best story and storyboard, we reworked it and created a whiteboard animation to showcase their visual understanding.

A story called “Jo Jeeta wohi sikandar” by Fantastic 4.

Molding Words into Clay: Visual Storytelling Workshop

We asked the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious participants of the VISUAL STORYTELLING WORKSHOP to create an image of themselves in words. Being able littérateurs, they framed themselves in poetic phrases. And after a discussion on adaptation and translation, the magnificent Manas Mathur (sculptor par excellence) guided them to mold words into clay.

This is a showcase of the spectacle that followed. We are humbled to enable you in your visual journey.
