ART FORM IN GENERAL:
Illustrations are primarily any doodles or drawings that are made freehand and are composed of the artist’s own flair and a signature style. They can either be created digitally or handmade.
THE INSPIRATIONAL SKETCHES:
Khushboo describes that her illustrations are highly inspired by culture, ethos, and hues around the world. She shares that art has always been her medium of expression and to her it is meditative. She can tide through any major life-altering events if her art is accompanying down the road. She loves detailing all her illustrations because those patterns and colors make her seek solace. She expresses that all the lines, patterns, and shapes contain her emotions and perspective. Khushboo was always inclined towards illustration and the digitization of the process, just boosted her confidence and growth. All the illustrations are nothing but Khushboo’s wholesome emotions.
THE OUTLINING PROCESS:
Our artist practices her art on several mediums. One, being the doodles on paper and another digitally illustrating. She tries to emulate her emotions and thought processes onto paper and later enhance it by just adding the right colors. She states that all her artworks depend on her mood; she is crystal clear about her sentiments and conveys them through her art. She tries to draw every now and then and also attaches her own essence to it.
Khushboo Gupta is a graphic designer and mother to Doodle Dabba, her Instagram account. She has graduated from Jamia Islamia specializing in fine arts. She tried her hands on product designing too but eventually shifted to illustrating and that’s when Doodle Dabba emerged. It is more than a hobby for her and so she concentrated on her commercial aspect as well. She designed various sketchbooks initially and they were a huge sell-out.
TO ALL THE NEWBIES:
She suggests that you should start from the basics and develop a creative mindset for creating innovative pieces. Practice is really necessary to boost your skills according to Khushboo. Along with this, she asks everyone to keep an open mind and eye and look out for concepts within you and around you. Following your instinct is important, states Khushboo.
