My Doodle to Drawing Board Adventures

Updated on July 15, 2013

Often times have we heard of the creative energy which transpires among many people. Fortunately, artists are able to capture it red-handed before it is gone forever into thin air. And nobody in the world would ever know of that idea by-gone if it was not picked-up in time.

This hub showcases some of my quick sketches, some very rustic once too because some doodles would have been made at very unconventional places....captured on iphone to upload here... sometimes while waiting at a signal light when I am on the wheels, sometimes in church or walking in a park. Best time when these ideas popup on us are when the white noise is in the air (while in the shower or just under a conventional ceiling fan) these ideas are just crackling up like fire crackers bursting in "at seconds" notice. Do you agree?

I have placed my sketches and paintings alongside in this hub for your viewing pleasure. Thank you for taking this trip!

Wanted Poster Series

Strange Inspirations - Started just for laughs

Now this was some fun creative breeze which passed by.

The theme of these posters are "The Wanted Series".

This finished "Chicken Tikka" was the first among the number of jolly-go-lucky sketches as below, the quick scribbles which eventually helped me create a couple of "Wanted" sketches which were inspirational in writing two more articles - the issues I had always wanted to address in years. (you can find one as the last the last shown in this "wanted Series: which is a humor-act to talk about my displeasure with some real-life events. I am grateful to this piece which got me started and made me step into those thoughts with one sketch after another until I stumbled upon some hidden emotions. I am glad that finally it got out some bottled up issues which I needed to address in years. I hope that in the process I am able to help you readers relate to your experiences at some point in your work life too.

The final prints of the painting as displayed below, today hangs in a few public places and are also used at Mardi Gras.

The art prints of this and the subsequent ones below are up for sale in a few popular domains.

Sorry Porky....It's just for laughs!

This one is my favorites and so is it with my well-wishers.

Ideal for Garden Landscaping ;o)

My bad! Mousy!

I am going to give a copy to my dad to hang it in our home-town garden because he sets the mouse traps every evening to trap the bandicoots who keep gnawing at my mom's vegetables in her garden.

All this led to this important Sketch

Thanks to the Chicken Tikka poster.

I am glad I made this one because I was kind of feeling disgruntled about some clients who were evading payments for months. At least it is letting me enjoy the humor in these pictures while I scribbled them up in the midst of the irony.

Kate's (Prince William's bride) Wedding Gown Countdown

Fashion Inspirations

Prince William and Kate's marriage was a good reason for that weekend for me to doodle up some wedding gowns while watching the count-down to the royal wedding as it I felt it worth joining the media to guess what her wedding gown would be like. I was anyway relaxing on the weekend. This was a good way.

A good reason to work on adding some pieces to my sketch portfolio.

So here are the sketches I made and the final gown Kate landed up wearing. I wonder if it was kind of close. I leave it to my audience to judge. Anyway it was a good experience.

Recessive Recession - Doodles and Art Pieces

Current Affairs

For the past three years, the word "recession" wouldn't go away from newspapers and television headlines and it still is a subject in the fore-front of News. And so does the inks of my pens don't stop letting out the emotions in the air either. Happy viewing!

Human Tsunami - Immigration braindrain reversal

Current Trends - Migration: Gone are the days when a population as a lot from countries in Asia migrated to work or a better life like Human Tsunamis to the West. With this recession the tsunami of immigrants have reversed and there are millions emigrating to work in places like China, India, Singapore from USA, Canada, Europe etc.

This sketch speaks about that migratory reversal.

Global Debt Crisis: Copyright 2011 Remy Francis
Global Debt Crisis: Copyright 2011 Remy Francis

Debt Crisis: Some jurisdictions have abopted the practise for years on end to imprison individuals who are unable to repay loans due to reasons beyond their control. Sadly left to perish inside cells without a solution for their plights. Eventually when corporates became enslaved in the same situation, it only creates noise but matters have gotten worse because it it was evidence to everyone that banks have created a credit economy to save the 70s recession which had led everyone to the recession of 2000s creating a domino effect, so much so as to effect whole nations and now the contagion has struck the whole globe with a reversal of leadership among economies.

Thanks for taking your time to read my quick hub.

Look forward to coming back with more inspirations.

      You are a good and entertaining artist and you can translate your thoughts into cartoons. That's quite a talent. Well done :)

      After the wedding gowns, I was kind of useless to the rest of the Hub. I am such a romantic. You could create artwork and sell it in sets. Those gowns would make a stunning presentation on a wall. sigh

      Hi there Giselle Thank you for your kind words. Such drawings are my way of releasing some steam. The "wanted series" was an idea born out of my frustrations from non-paying clients. ...guess... finding humor in misery, to survive the bad-feeling.

      Well I would have loved to be an official illustrator to some publisher churning out children's books regularly. That would be a dream come true. Unfortunately work comes in between that I haven't found dedicated time to promote my Kids story illustrations. I love kids stories and have animated for several years for a kids channel...It's so much in me that sometimes I go to bed listening to my iPhone audiobook app - with something like Alice in wonderland. :o)

      Fascinating... I liked your humorous 'wanted' posters, and also the way you dealt with more serious topics like the recession. Your wedding gown sketches looked like they belong in a real illustrated book. Have you ever thought of illustrating children's stories?

      Hey thanks Nicolas

      Glad you liked it. Appreciate your kind words and for tweeting my article. Luckily.. realized only recently writing too is my passion...Once I started using one as a vehicle to house the other or vice versa, I am enjoying it so much more.
