McLaren MP4-12C Linework

The Pen tool in the Adobe Premiere Suit is notoriously tricky to master. However, I've managed to master it. I think.

Now that the McLaren MP4-12C is dead, I made it a good-bye present.

PathFinder

Summer holidays are here. It took me a day and a half to get bored. So I helped my friends at University of California, Berkeley with their really cool app project. I made the Logo and Splash Screen.


Various iterations of the logo,

How To Make Ramen


Making Ramen is really not that hard. It's simple.

But if you're a college student, and have no resources or time, its extremely difficult. At times you end up sitting still in a chair for hours due to sheer frustration of not being able to make ramen quickly and simply.

Worry no more, for I have a radically simple solution to this problem.


Things you need.


Ramen-get the strong stuff.

Flower Of Life

Flower of Life is one example where geometry and art clash in a blindingly beautiful reaction.

This is what happens.














This is simple geometry. The sort of geometry you do in junior school.

Zuko Torchic

Zuko Torchic!


Using pixel art, I created this Torchic, with a dash of Prince Zuko from Avatar-The Last Airbender. The darker orange colour represent the scars of Zuko. As both Torchic and Zuko are firebenders, it does make a lot of sense. 

I used 2 cm x 2 cm paper squares, and painted them individually, and then stuck them on a drawn grid to create the structure. It looks much better the further you are away from it(pixelation).

Interview with Tom Hunt, Co-founder of The James Hunt Foundation

James Hunt



sap: Tom, would you introduce yourself please?
A: Hi All, I'm Tom, James's eldest son and one of the founders of James Hunt Racing.


sap: What inspired you to set up The James Hunt Foundation? Have you shortlisted any charities to donate to as of yet?
Tom: We wanted to give something back to this world as dad had given so much during his life, and create something that would uphold his legacy in the right way. We haven't shortlisted any charities yet, but my brother and I are keen for most of the funds we raise to go to environmental causes, and we know Dad would have approved of that given his fond appreciation for nature and wildlife.


sap: What do you want The James Hunt Foundation to be doing in 5 years time?
Tom: I would like to think we would be raising consistent meaningful sums each year, to be donated to causes that we would have built lasting relationships with by then.


sap: Is there anything you want to reveal about the future of The James Hunt Foundation?
Tom: At this stage all I can say is that we are hoping to be part of a special auction in September where there will be a number of JH related pieces raising money for the Foundation.

Nokia 101 Review

A mobile phone by definition is,

mobile phonenounBrit.a telephone with access to a cellular radio system so it can be used over a wide area, without a physical connection to a network.
So by definition, the Nokia 101 is the best mobile phone you can buy right now. It hasn't yet dropped a call, or failed to send an SMS. It has a torch, an MP3 player with radio, a stonkingly powerful speaker which can wake the dead, and sudoku. Oh and it can go on for weeks without needing a recharge. All for about $35. 



Of course, smartphones are the new fad, and as I use a Nokia 710 on a daily basis, I know for a fact that it really is very convenient, having the internet at my disposal, anytime anywhere. All those apps, instant messaging, Twitter, Facebook, emails, 9GAG, and I could go on and on, the list of things I can do with a smartphone is endless. Apart from making calls, or sending SMS's, of course. That is something the 710 does not do very well. Nor does the iPhone, for that matter. 

There's this simple joy to using the Nokia 101. No internet connectivity, no social networking, no emails, no distractions. No flimflam. Just calling, and sending SMS's. It's a lot like taking a holiday, and its a relief not being connected to the internet all the time. I can only imagine Nokia gave it dual sim functionality so that corporates who use it once, and get addicted to the calmness it brings in their lives, chuck away their Blackberries, and iPhones can replace both their mobile phones with the 101. It's not like the target market audience of this phone have both a work phone, and a personal phone. I highly doubt Nokia were swamped by complaints of the target audience wanting to use both their work and personal sim in one phone. I am quite certain it was included to cater to those who convert over from their smartphones.




To anyone wanting to get away from the rat race, or go to a beach resort to relax, there's no need. Simply replace your smartphone with the Nokia 101, and you shall achieve zen.
