3 to 4 minute sketches

3 to 4 minute sketches

 

A day in the life of a software professional is beset with tight schedules and deadlines. In order to make my daily grind interesting and fruitful; I sometimes do involve in doing 3 to 4 minute sketches to break the monotony. All the sketches are done on a business visiting card (definitely obsolete cards…)

Here are some of my recent sketches typically done in 3 to 4 minutes.

 

Michael Jackson, my favorite idol. I am crazy about him. His songs make me groove. Here’s my 4 minute sketch celebrating the greatest entertainer on earth.

Surveillance in the IT industry adds to the overflowing woes of the software professionals. Already hounded by deadlines and the constant usage of the gray matter; surveillance adds to the discomfort. Here I have a sketch to protest against this practice. It was done in 4 minutes.

I noticed this tree during one of my usual journeys. I was on the way to Chennai from Ernakulam and I happened to see this tree magnificent against the backdrop of a hill in Palakkad. I put it down on paper and here it is for you. It took me 3 minutes to get this down.
