URBAN SKETCHING ✏️
Being a fan of minimal stroke drawings of Artist Namboothiri, Madanan and Toms, I always wanted to do quick dynamic sketches. And two weeks ago, I joined a 7 day, daily-1-hour, course by Kabir Pradhan on Urban sketching. The course was targeting beginners, and outcome specific. Do check his Instagram for details.
THE ANTI LIBRARY 📚
Indeed, the more you know, the larger the rows of unread books. Let us call this collection of unread books an antilibrary. - Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan
The concept of anti library as mentioned got my attention after reading FSblog’s note which says ‘My library serves as a visual reminder of what I don’t know’. Building my personal anti library is my goal for 2022! Here is Ness Lab’s how to.
PERFECTIONISM AND BEAUTIFUL MESS 🔖
Here are two amazing pieces of content I discovered this week. One is a very engaging podcast episode - ‘Breaking up with Perfectionism’, by Adam Grant ( Author : Think Again) on his podcast Worklife. Other is a newsletter by John Cutler named ‘The Beautiful Mess’, (Thanks Parvathi for this find!) on cross-functional product development. 💎, they are!
METHOD & MADNESS 🎞️
Of movies I watched in the last three weeks, regretting the unsahikables, the finest were Puzhu and Kadaseela Biriyani. Puzhu is the celebration of Mammotty and his subtle performance. The entire movie revolves around his character, and it was a surprise to know that there are more ‘methods’ in his stock even after 40+ years of acting! Kadaseela Biriyani, a tamil dark-humor, was a truly original, fabulously narrated ‘madness’ of anarchy. Great start from two debut directors, I would say!
