Be­fore go­ing free­lance Ishan was em­ployed at Sin­ga­porean stu­dio Me­di­aFreaks as a CG gen­er­al­ist and art di­rec­tor, spend­ing three years cre­at­ing an­i­ma­tions for TV com­mer­cials and doc­u­men­taries.

Over the past 18 months the In­dian artist has been work­ing on his own 15-minute short film, Schirkoa, in­spired by favourite storytellers Hayao Miyazaki and Ken Levine. “I try to find the sweet spot be­tween tra­di­tional draw­ing and non-pho­to­re­al­is­tic 3D in my work,” Ishan says. “My favourite themes are dystopia and retro-fu­tur­ism.”

1 Gloomy Mon­day

“Most peo­ple don’t like the thought of Mon­day morn­ings, and so in this im­age I wanted to showcase the claus­tro­pho­bia and monotony Mon­day can in­voke within a mis­an­thropic in­di­vid­ual.”

2 197A apart­ment

“This is a retro-fu­tur­is­tic apart­ment for my up­com­ing short film. I want to start the story with warmish tones, be­fore in­tro­duc­ing the darker themes of the story.”

3 Bag ev­ery­thing

“A lost train sta­tion in a sort of steam­punk dystopian city. The ad­ver­tise­ment in the cor­ner sets the mood per­fectly.”

4 Gold Dis­trict

“A morn­ing scene – again, in a steam­punk set­ting.”
