DEATH NOTE – Review by a New Weeb

What if you had the supernatural power to kill anyone you want? Many of you already know where this is heading. I am late to the party but here’s my review of the legendary anime, “Death Note”.
In a dining table conversation about East Asian media, I was suggested this anime. I was told that it is ‘that’ superior show, which can turn me into an anime fan. No denying that; I am currently binging Naruto.

Cover pages matter. Especially on days when you browse through a bookshop aimlessly. It is impossible to not run your fingers across the spines of the books as you drift from one rack to another.

I didn’t purchase it, but the one word title was seared into my memory.

Exploring the world of Graphic Designs with Harshvardhan Singh/Discovering Ragas and Swaras with Jelin Anand

To get into Digital Art, I initially started like how every other kid does, with a paint brush and random colours. A lot of inspiration came from movies and shows I grew up watching, this may sound a little weird but Aamir Khan’s 2007 film Taare Zameen Par worked like quite an inspiration for me. I remember watching it on Christmas and getting pad and poster colours to become the next Ishaan Awasthi.
