My illustration series “City of Lost Hope" is inspired by the emptiness of the city of Kolkata and its people. Due to a conservative and restrictive left regime for more than thirty consecutive years, the back-bone of this ‘vibrant and enriched’ city was completely destroyed. The shattered economic growth, apathy to change anything, obstruction to all kinds of development, negligence to urban psychology, unconstitutional support to minority groups, and generic politicizing of all aspect of life took Kolkata to a  phase of thoughtlessness and oblivion. With the end of left rule, a large number of people expected the end of the dark period of monotony, but unfortunately this change was just political, except the colours and shape of the baton, all the things remain same.

Illustrations from this series are mostly from my memory from my college and university life - 2001 to 2006 (as well as enriched by some photographs in newspaper, article, online or offline). This are mostly drawn on A4 sized crape paper, scanned and digitally manipulated. I use a large variant of colours including inks (gel and fountain), water colours, acrylics, oil pastels, dry pastels. In this series, I’ve tried to restrict myself in duotone.

If you think that, you can spend hours and hours and hours making your own posts or you can unfollow me, because I think it is ‘very very annoying’ to see one of my posts get popular only to click on it and see that 90% of the people who saw it never saw my url. Believe it or not, I make posts for myself and so I can gain followers! I gain less followers when someone removes my url from the post, and this is even more true now that we have mini-profiles.

And they aren’t ‘peoples urls’, it is one url, the url that took the time to create the post.
