COMIX.INDIA - The self-published black & white comics anthology

(Update: The CDBi forums are no more. It's all been integrated with the Comix.India website.)

It's an exciting time to be involved with the local comics scene. There's a new comics anthology on the cards, and it's titled COMIX.INDIA. It's being edited by Bharat Murthy and designed by me.

The magazine's features are:
- Black & White pages, with a color coer
- Size: 7"x9"
- Page count: 250-300

This is a completely fan-driven venture, with no commercial backing. Anybody can contribute content. It won't be available at the shops. It'll only be available online at, a print-on-demand site. Since there's no initial investment needed here, there's no real risk of commercial failure.

Get more details at the COMIX.INDIA forum.

Logo designs for the Project C initiative

Two tentative logos I created sometime back for the Project C comic magazine that's in the works.

Option A: A custom-made font, composed of blocks. The logo can be extended to comfortably accomodate info like the issue number, date etc.

Option B: The circles on top can be seen as a depiction of the half-tone process used in a lot of color printing (though, truthfully speaking, this could use a little refinement).

Mind-bogglingly awesome poster designs

UK-based designer Simon Page created 10 space-themed retro-feel posters for the International Year of Astronomy 2009 campaign.

My favourites: 1st and 3rd on top; 2nd and 3rd bottom. Brilliant.

You can purchase these prints.
