Well… I have been thinking of getting back into illustrations and art, not just for school but for me and most probably reopen my art blog again along my interest in scrap art.
Flashback : The school was to close for a week long state festival of ‘Onam’. I planned out the 7 days to do some scrap art, it’s been a long time since I’ve been neglecting that side of my creativity. So all set with the necessary stuff , gloves, face visor, dust masks, electric cutter [ The electric cutter being a new add on to my collection – which I had bought the same morning ]. I set out to work, for the beginning part worked on a pencil holder to be mounted on wall next to the light box, small candle lanterns out of soda cans. There was this piece of wood which I wanted to turn into a key holder. So after lunch I set out with my tools on the terrace ( my tinkering shop 🙂 ). Half way down into the project.The cutter got jammed in the wood and kicked back in the opposite direction and before I knew it,the worst had happened.
Well I guess the comic strip below would give a fairly good idea about what happened.
I thought about the whole incident later while lying at the recovery ICU room , Flashes of my thumb hanging by a bit of flesh , kept haunting me , I knew I had to do something to get over that , So the comic strip ” The Cutter Matter ” , now going through the strip so far has helped me come to terms with the whole incident,and at times the pain, Since the incident , there has been many new learning lessons of which I shall share as the days come by and also will be working on the rest of the comic strip pages in the coming days.
