3D comics covers

I remember, in my school days when comics were a rage among kids.
local brands like Diamond comics, Manoj comics and Raj comics published 6-8 titles every month which used to be called a set. there were our regular book corners which used to rent it out on 25 or 50 paise per comic book.
they sometimes came up with special issue which were publicized as 3D comics. these comics were packed in a fancy wrapping and were provided with a spectacles which had red and blue coloured lenses. It never became popular but had a novelty value to it

recently, I visited raj comics website. they had changed it's layout and improved it visually.
there, I found some links to 3D comics download.

राजकमल प्रकाशन की वेबसाइट और ऑनलाइन स्टोर



१२ के बाद मेरा सेलेक्सन डिजाईन इंस्टिट्यूट में हो गया में खुश था लेकिन मेरी पढ़ाई हिन्दी माध्यम से होने के कारण मुझे वहाँ के अंग्रेजी लेक्ट्चेर समझने में दिक्कत आती थी। सीरियस रीडिंग की तो बात बहुत दूर की थी।
तब मेरी टीचर ने कहा बात अंग्रेजी या हिन्दी की नही है ।
बात पढने की है तुम हिन्दी में ही अच्छी किताबें पढो। तब उन्होंने कुछ नाम सुझाए । फ़िर मैंने पढ़ना शुरू कर दिया। और मुझे राजकमल प्रकाशन की किताबें बहुत स्तरीय लगीं । और इनके पास लगभग सभी प्रसिद्द लेखको का प्रकाशित साहित्य है ।
जैसी आज की स्थिति है उसमे हिन्दी की स्तरीय किताबें आसनी से नहीं मिलती हैं । अगर मिलती भी हैं तो आप के पास चुनने की लिए ज्यादा च्वायस नहीं होती ।
मैं कुछ दिनों पहले अपने छोटे भाई ललित से बात कर रहा था उसने बताया की लखनऊ में राष्ट्रीय पुस्तक मेला लगा है। तब, उसने पूछा क्या आप को कोई किताब मंगवानी है । मैंने इन्टरनेट पर हिन्दी किताबो की लिस्ट सर्च करने के लिए कुछ शब्द गूगल में टाइप किए, तब मुझे राजकमल प्रकाशन की वेबसाइट और ऑनलाइन स्टोर का लिंक मिला। मुझे बहुत अच्छा लगा अब में अपनी पसंद की किताब सर्च करके ऑनलाइन आर्डर कर सकता हूँ ।
हम सब को ऐसी वेबसाइट को प्रमोट करना चाहिए।

Menace of MNS aka Raj Thackeray

Menace of MNS continues. we all have opinions and a lot has already been said about this.
I am no commentator but I like Ajit Ninan's cartoon in today's Times of India.
It says it all.
only time will tell, if petty politics will go on longer.

TOTA DESIGN : good intenion and real world

I don't know, where is this bunch of people? their site not been updated for long. they started a group based on mutual interest and need.
but some ventures start and perish the intentions were good but real world is harsh which can crush bohemian dreams. individual growth starts taking upper place then groups get separated.
anyway, I liked their very simple tota drawings on the web front.

Tick Tackler: visual look n feel for online game

This is one of the many visual design projects for online games done at emantras media labs, Gurgaon. (http://mlab.emantras.com)

Working for game design is not very distant from animation film making. It also has characters, background, layout, story and motion. Only thing is it doesn’t follow a very restricted liner sequence and sometimes might defy certain cinematic fundamentals.
