Center fruit Xplode!!

Hey guys, posting after another long hiatus. Here are two latest works done at Vaibhav Studios. Was a lot of fun working on them. I hope you enjoy them just as much!

Tortoise and Hare

A quick illustration I did for my cousin for her office canteen. Simple concept of a hare delivering food faster than the tortoise. Was fun, especially designing them! :)

Vodafone Zoozoos!!

Hey guys long time no posts! :)

Well these are some Zoozoo ads we did for Vodafone here at Vaibhav Studios. Hope you like them!

This below was done for their Facebook page when they crossed 10 million likes. It's completely animated and it was a lot of fun working on them, though I admit, it was a huge challenge to get the 'Zoozooness' right. I animated quite a lot of shots here, including the entire 'loves me - loves me not' film, and the shot where the Zoozoos make up in the first film..



These below were done to promote Vodafone's Internet services and were telecast mostly during the IPL 2013 matches. Here the normal Zoozoos were all live action (and were directed brilliantly by ad film maker Prakash Varma of Nirvana Films). The mini Zoozoos or Zumis were animated by us. This was another challenge, to get the behaviour of the Zumis right. They had to appear quite active and workaholic all the time. And btw that dot is their 'O' shaped mouth. The helmet covers their eyes. ENJOY!!

The films 3, 4, 8 and 11 were done by RnH India and the rest were done by us. All animation work directed by Vaibhav Kumaresh

Some of my professional work

Whew! Quite a long while since I last posted here! Sorry guys, was busy as a bee working as an animator and a freelance illustrator! :)

Well here are a few of my animation work that I did in Vaibhav Studios. I hope you'll like it!


^ Was a lot of fun working on this Bengali woman! I sort of took inspiration from one of my aunts who's just as nagging because she has to do all the housework while her husband simply lazes around! Haha!

This was a winners announcement clip of a contest (also animated by us) for Disney Channel India. We did more of such clips. Check them out here (the Punjabi family clip was done by me too)
.... ....

These TV spots below were done for Nickelodeon India and were directed by the incredible Rajiv Eipe. Absolutely loved working on his crazy ideas!


^ Animated the Astronaut, the Lizard, and the Auto Rickshaw (not the driver).


^ Animated the hill, the ant electrocuted, TeeVee (yes that's his name) diving, and the two crazy dudes chasing around in love.


^ Animated TeeVee, among a few others.


^ Animated the opening shot, the caterpillar getting high, among a few others.

'Look Ma! I'm hands free!!' - health update

video

Hey guys work's been really hectic which is why I haven't been able to update my blog with any of my personal work lately! I'll definitely try and upload some. Meanwhile I thought I'd update you with my health condition. As you can see from the video, it's been quite a remarkable progress (touch wood) compared to my last update. I can now manage to walk without any support at all, but only smaller distances. Otherwise I use my stick. The walker's almost gone.

The doc says it shouldn't take much time now for me to recover completely. I still have a cast plaster around my left leg which should go away within a few months, after which he'll make me walk on a PTB brace. Soon I should be able to run. Haha!!

But on the brighter side, I can now drive a car and even manage to cycle! So things are definitely coming around now!

Nearly there now, guys, nearly there! :)
