Kaká | Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite

Language influencing identity.
Consult Tamilian if the above does not make sense.


As a child, I have always loved putting together torn magazine pages my father used to shred, just to see what they withheld. This was far too colorful and interesting to let go. This is an illustration of my friends which you can find titled and annotated on her blog
I have printed them out in a few miniature sizes including a postcard size. Think they look lovely.

Explorer Hanu Discovers Tea

Hanuman bringing home the Sanjeevani herb to revive Laxman in the epic Ramayan is the first citation of Tea in India history. The first tea was just a concoction of Sanjeevani and water.

Mumbai's cutting chai needed a mascot. Who better than our Indian superhero Hanu. He flies in his new pimped up attire to various cities around the world delivering the cutting chai experience.

Parochialism | Cauvery

The parochial character with which the public view or are forced into assessing an issue or situation.
I am trying to address the same regarding the Cauvery river dispute between Karnataka and Tamilnadu using illustrations that view the issue parochially, mocking it using satire.

This is the first time i have used Photoshop to render and experiment my illustrative style. Need to explore more.

The Twitterati

Twitter and Google are helping to end China's stranglehold on information and accelerate the process of democratization

Twitter is largely blocked by China's "great firewall" (GFW), which prevents Chinese people from accessing certain sites. Yet Twitter has an almost religious following among tech-savvy Chinese, whose determination to use the service outstrips authorities' efforts to block access to it.
Chinese Twitterati helped get the GFW on to the list of Twitter's top 10 "trending topics" (or most tweeted terms) – an impressive feat given that Twitter is supposed to be inaccessible in China.
Twitter, which lets people send bite-size messages to large groups, allows the Chinese to quickly disseminate urgent news or even uncomfortable facts. Twitter can create a faster information flow than any official agency.That means people would get information faster than the government. That's a real crisis for Communists.

Toy news

The idea was to create toys that could fascinate children as well as work as collectables, using newspaper and a folding technique.
The next step was to create a 'Do it yourself' sheet on how one can very simply make these forms in just a few steps.
