Art eventually.
Got sick after first comicon last month, then allergies.
School work got in the way as always…got some work I cannot post until after publication.  Though I do have a show over the summer I need to make some tea art for, so that’ll start showing up over the next few months.
Tornado this morning at 5:30am, about 20-25 minutes away in St Louis.  Sirens are functional, Whee… spring.

Hari & Deepti (India/USA)

Hari & Deepti are an artist couple currently based out of Denver, Colorado. Hari (whose full name is Harikrishnan Panicker) is a trained graphic designer and illustrator, born and raised in Mumbai, India where he was a senior designer and an established illustrator. Deepti Nair is a certified geek, an Interaction Designer and also a trained artist.

Hari & Deepti moved to Denver from India and carried with them a Pandora box full of stories and imagination that they bring to life through their intricate paper cut light boxes and paper clay sculptures. They have always been drawn towards the imaginative aspect of story telling and seek inspiration from them. Stories have so many shades and depth in them, and paper as a medium has the exact qualities to reflect and interpret them. They believe that “Paper is brutal in its simplicity as a medium. It demands the attention of the artist while it provides the softness they need to mold it in to something beautiful. It is playful, light, colorless and colorful. It is minimal and intricate. It reflects light, creates depth and illusions in a way that it takes the artist through a journey with limitless possibilities.”

They started experimenting with paper cut shadow boxes in 2010 with hand painted watercolor paper which was then cut and assembled in a wooden box to create a diorama, with years of practice their art became more intricate and minimal at the same time. They started experimenting with lights and simplified their pieces by losing the colored aspect of the paper. They have since then evolved to add their own style of paper cut art incorporating back-lit light boxes using flexible LED strip lights. “What amazes us about the paper cut light boxes is the dichotomy of the piece in its lit and unlit state, the contrast is so stark that it has this mystical effect on the viewers.” (src.
