WHITE PEOPLE DOING YOGA - PARDON MY HINDI

Wish I could fly over to San Francisco to see Chiraag Bakta’s awesome new exhibition #WHITEPEOPLEDOINGYOGA

I’ve been a fan of Chiraaj’s work since his early Pardon My Hindi days (I used to download his desktop wallpaper designs…hah) but this project really makes a strong statement and can I imagine it offending, and confusing lots of people who accept ‘yoga’ as this huge, universal, craze that has swept the Western world. Well, GOOD! It’s always good to shake things up :)

Catch Chiraag talking more about his work and perspective in this great presentation, as well as in this quirky interview with The Aerogram here

If that’s not enough, take a peek at the Tumblr he started ages ago for an idea of the sheer ludicrousness and clear validity of the project. 

Have any of you guys seen the exhibition yet?

A comic book about the lives of Filipina migrant workers

Toronto-based artists, Althea Balmes and Jo SiMalaya Alcampo are creating a community comic book in collaboration with Filipina migrant workers in the Live-in Caregiver Program called, “Kwentong Bayan: Labour of Love”. In the Filipino language, “kwentong bayan” is the literal translation of “community stories”. The artists will present work-in-progress and caregivers will share real-life stories.

The Live-in Caregiver Program continues to be heavily contested and at the centre of many controversies. Many Canadians rely on this program to access affordable care for vulnerable members of their families.

Many Filipinas leave their own families and work abroad to cope with the unstable economy in the Philippines. 

Also check out Filipino Web Channel three-part videos on the project:

1. Shoot me a message here or email me at nerdturd @ gmail . com about your commission preferences so we can get that conversation going. It’s also a good idea to peruse this blog first and get familiar with my work and what I can potentially do for you.
2. Full payment via Paypal has to be made before I start the commission.
3. Once payment has been made, I will begin and then send you a low-res preliminary sketch of what the image will look like before finalizing it. This is the time to suggest some minimal adjustments.
4. Once the commission is finished, I will email you the final image in different file formats (hi-res JPEG, PNG, PDF and/or TIFF). AND WE’RE DONE!
NOTE: Please allow me at least 2-5 days to finish sketches and portraits, and at least 5-7 days for half-body or full-body commissions. I will definitely be in contact with you if I can’t deliver your commission on time. Rush commissions will cost a bit more. Just ask!
STILL GAME? LET’S GO!
