ARTIST INTERVIEW: Pracheta Banerjee
Profession: Illustrator & Comic Book Artist
Tell us a bit about your work.
I’ve been painting since I was 11 years old, currently 22, In my early days, my work was more inclined towards the anime style, which later grew more realistic. I am self-taught, I worked with traditional tools for 5-6 years, (mostly watercolors and acrylics) later moved to the digital medium.
How did you get into art?
I stumbled upon this anime called “Inu Yasha”, which actually got me into art, I used to draw everyday for at least 6 hours, and sometimes even 24 hours at a stretch, these days my works may take even a month to complete.
I published my own book, “Cirrus: The Artbook” on November 2014.
Which is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.in/Cirrus-Artbook-Pracheta-Banerjee/dp/8173819483
I submitted 3 pages of sequential art from my personal project “Silence” which led me to win the first Millarworld Annual by Mark Millar (2016) and worked on “Starlight” and got published by Image Comics.
What are you working on next?
Currently, I am working on some secret comic book projects, apart from that, when I have time, I work on personal illustrations.
Any advice for younger artists?
If you’re passionate enough, you will grow in skill and you will find your way, but you will also need the right audience at the same time.
What are your inspirations?
I can get inspired from anything and everything, however I tend to paint more dark themes or works that reflect my feelings or I am trying to convey something.
