Zen Pencils is amazing

This banner is like so Zen.

As far as inspirational webcomics go, Zen Pencils just takes the cake. With absolutely amazing art style and a great theme to go with it, I can go hours just going through the 100 or so comics present on the site. The premise of the site is that the guy finds a quote that he enjoys, or one that inspires him and he makes a comic with its own underlying story relating to the quote. Recently, the cartoonist, Gavin Aung Than, published one about Malala Yousafzai, the 15 year old Pakistani girl who got shot in the head and is one of the most famous figures currently. Seeing a fellow Pakistani’s quote turned into a rather amazing comic was the inspiration for this post and for me to make such terrific art myself. Wished to share a few of his comics with you guys Continue reading

The Study Cycle (Comic)

Currently stuck in the loop. So you could say this is a true story.

LOOPER – A MOVIE REVIEW

Previously, I had posted the trailer and some stills of the time travelling film Looper and ever since then I have been extremely excited for the film. I actually learned about this film quite some time ago, somewhere on the internet in an article of ‘Anticipated films of 2012’ or something like that, which had nothing but a few lines explaining the most basic gist of the film. But that small glimpse of the movie has stuck with me since then and with high expectations, I finally went to the cinema to watch Looper. And believe me, I was not disappointed.  Continue reading:

Iron Man 3 Teaser, Poster and Photos! (And Official Trailer too!)

Hollywood has perfected the art of creating hype. Its either that or I just get excited easily. I’d like to think it is the latter. Anyways, the first of all the upcoming scheduled Marvel movies has made an appearance and Iron Man 3 does appear pretty darn great. Check out the teaser poster:

An insanely thought provoking comic (by SMBC)

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (SMBC) is one of the most famous webcomics on the internet right now. Many of their comics are really smart and well thought out but this one was really wonderful. Sort of puts a life into perspective, doesn’t it? I just wanted to share this with you guys.

A LIL’ BIT OF COLOUR

You know those black and white photographs with only a person or an object having colour in them? Well, I love them. And I recently discovered my obsession with making them. It really helps in bringing an object or person to the viewer’s attention. It ‘s almost as if you blurred out the rest of the picture. So I decided to take some photographs and apply the same effect to them. These photos are taken from 55 Famous Pictures of Time Magazine, some of them are really great photos and you should definitely check them out. The first one is of my sister, though. So for your viewing pleasure, 10 Photos with a little bit of colour in them:

7 ACTION SCENES THAT I LOVE

Before we go on, most of this list comprises of scenes that were just epic in magnitude. I don’t know if that made sense or not. Critics have given negative reviews to some of these movies and I would like to make it clear that I believe the scene in question was great, its not necessary that the film was too. Also, I’m the most hypocritical movie ‘enthusiast’ ever. The number of great movies I have not watched is embarrassing. So, forgive me if this list makes you go “WHAAA–?! HOW COULD YOU NOT ADD THAT ONE!?” And lastly, the scenes chosen are from the last ten years or so with one exception. My words to picture ratio is also way off. So without further ado, here are my selections (not in any order whatsoever):

THE TSUNAMI THAT SAVED PAKISTAN

Wikipedia offers this for the term Tsunami: A tsunami is a series of water waves caused by the displacement of a large volume of a body of water. And this is what a tsunami is thought of around the whole world. However in Pakistan it means something different entirely. A tsunami is what will save Pakistan.
