FROM THE 'WINDOW'
competition art brief
Look outside your window. It could be the window to the inside as well. What landscapes unfold? What stories does the city share? Especially in places where we talked, played, and celebrated. What changes do you see?
Or this could be a window of meditation and imagination. Why is this change inevitable? What changes do you wish to see? How will these hybrid changes look like? Where are you seeing those changes? Who all are doing them?
Time to energize your thoughts, embrace your views, and explore with paper, pen, and ink or color with your spectacular ideas of the world today and tomorrow. Happy Illustrating!
